Property Taxes

Arkansas property taxes are levied by counties, municipalities, and school districts. All households are eligible for a refund of up to $300 regardless of income or age. Political subdivisions collect taxes on real property (house and land) and personal property (motor vehicles, boats and motors, motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles). Assessment is based on 20 percent of the true market value. The taxable assessed value of homesteads will not increase more than 5% above the previous taxable assessed value except when new additions or substantial improvements are made to the property. However, the taxable value of the homestead will continue to increase each year until it equals 20% of market value. The taxable assessed value of homesteads of residents aged 65 or older, or those who are disabled are capped at the previous year value unless improvements are made or the property is sold.

Inheritance and Estate Taxes

There is no inheritance tax. In 2003 the estate tax was repealed for those deceased after January 1, 2005.
