Understanding Arkansas Property Taxes

Overview of Arkansas Taxes

Arkansas collects a total of $25,588,652,000 in revenue every year. Of that, $2,217,551,000 comes from property taxes, or 8.7% of total revenue. As a result, Arkansas has the 42nd highest property tax rate in the country, which is 39.8% less than the national average of 1.06%. Generally speaking, states where property taxes make up a higher percentage of total state revenue have higher property tax rates, and states where property taxes make up a smaller percentage of state revenue have lower property tax rates.

How does this translate to what homeowners actually pay? The average home value across Arkansas is $139,001, meaning the average Arkansas homeowner pays 0.64% of their home value every year in property taxes, or $6.40 for every $1,000 in home value.

Property Tax Calendar

Arkansas's property tax system is governed by state statute, which means that despite significant variation in what homeowners in different parts of Arkansas, there are important constants. Arkansas's assessment date, which is both the point in time when the owner of a property is liable for property tax and the point in time at the property's value is determined, is January 1. Arkansas property tax appeals, which allow homeowners to contest the assessment, starts 30 days after notice is mailed. The date which property tax bills become due on is October 10.
