Deadline extended for property taxes

Tuesday, October 5, 2010
Charles Thomas was among a group of tax-paying citizens who stopped by the Carroll County Tax Collector's office Monday to pay his property taxes before the deadline, which is usually Oct. 10. This year, however, the deadline is Tuesday, Oct. 12 because of the Columbus Day holiday. Assisting Thomas was Deputy Collector Rhonda Brantner. Anna Mathews / Carroll County News

For residents of 31 Arkansas counties, personal property and real estate taxes can be paid online at www.arkansas.gov/ or over the phone, with most counties extending the weekend Oct. 10 deadline to midnight on Tuesday, Oct. 12. Residents should be sure to check the full listing of counties and deadlines available at www.Arkansas.gov.

Working in partnership with county tax collectors, the official state website offers residents the ability to pay personal property and real estate tax payments with a credit card or electronic check online, over the phone, or in person at the collector's office.

Carroll County is one of the 31 counties offering secure online Web payments with a credit card (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) or electronic check.

In addition to online payments, Carroll County now accepts credit card payments in the county office.

To use the online payment services, taxpayers may enter the parcel number provided on their tax statements or can search the database for specific parcels.

The property tax system guides the user through a series of entry screens and provides a confirmation and printable receipt page for record-keeping.
