Personal property and real estate taxes in Arkansas are due Oct. 16, 2023

The deadline to pay taxes is weeks away, and so far 48 percent of Clark County, Arkansas, residents have paid their taxes.

Chief deputy collector Tina Martin said the total collected as of Sept. 17 was $6,637,342.78. The original charge for 2022 taxes, payable in 2023, is $13,819,245.95. This includes personal property and real estate taxes. 

The deadline for paying taxes is Monday, Oct. 16, 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.

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 at 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.
