Clark County residents now have yet another way to pay their real estate and personal property taxes.
With the COVID-19 Delta variant creeping across the South, the Clark County Collector’s Office is providing citizens an avenue to pay their taxes and avoid any crowd that might otherwise convene as the Oct. 15 tax deadline nears.
A drop-box is located on the courthouse grounds, situated adjacent to the sidewalk at the southern entrance, at Crittenden and South 4th Street.
“It’s just another option for residents to drop their tax payments off,” said Tina Martin, chief deputy collector. “This way, they don’t have to come inside” if worried about COVID-19. Martin said her deputies have been checking the locked box once a day, but will check it more often throughout the day as the tax deadline approaches.
All forms of payment may be dropped into the box, but checks or money orders are preferred.
Another contactless way to pay taxes is online, Martin said, by visiting http://www.clarkcountyarkansas.com and selecting “Online Tax Payments” on the home page. “If you choose this option, the instructions on the website will walk you right through the process,” Martin said.
Paying inside the courthouse remains an option, but anyone entering the courthouse is urged to wear a face covering.
