Tuesday deadline to pay property taxes

Commissioner of State Lands John Thurston would like to remind Arkansans to pay their property taxes by the Tuesday deadline.

Property taxes help fund public schools, libraries and emergency services. Failure to pay taxes on time will result in additional costs. If taxes are not paid within the following year, real property taxes may be certified to the commissioner of state lands office for collection.

Individual counties’ office hours will vary on Oct. 15. The commissioner’s office will accept payment in office until 4:30 p.m. Details: 501-683-3053.
