Clark County tax deadline is Oct. 17

The deadline to pay taxes is fast approaching, and so far 61 percent of Clark County residents have paid their taxes.

Chief deputy collector Tina Martin said the total collected as of Sept. 30 was $7,628,602. The original charge for 2021 taxes, payable in 2022, is $12,405,030. This includes personal property and real estate taxes. 

The deadline for paying taxes is Monday, Oct. 17, a week later than in typical years because of how the Columbus Day holiday falls on the calendar. Beginning Oct. 18 there will be a 10% penalty added to the overall cost of the bill to those who pay late. 

Lately, many folks have turned up to get their tax bill out of the way. “It’s started to pick up,” Martin said. “We’re pretty steady now.” 

Customers have several ways to pay their property taxes. Payments can be made in person by visiting the Clark County Collector’s Office, located on the first level of the courthouse, from 8:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. They can also be paid online or by mail at 401 Clay St., Arkadelphia, AR 71923. Additionally, a drop-off box is located outside the courthouse, on Crittenden Street.

For those paying in person, checks should be made payable to Clark County Tax Collector. Those paying by mail should include their Tax ID number on the check along with a stamped, self-addressed envelope to receive a receipt.

Partial payments are OK so long as the full amount is paid by the deadline, Martin said.
