Tax Collector

Welcome to the Grant County Tax Collector's Office where we strive to provide you with courteous and professional service. From this site you will be able to find general tax information, helpful links and the ability to pay your taxes online.

The county collector is the collector of taxes for the county and collects municipal, county, school and improvement district taxes and turns them over to the county treasurer. The collector is responsible for collecting all property taxes from the first day of March to the fifteenth day of October during the calendar year after they are assessed.

By statute, the collector is required to turn over all tax revenue to the treasurer at least once a month. Taxpayers may pay their taxes in installments, with one-fourth of the total being due between February and April, one-fourth being due between April and July, and the remaining one-half between July and October 15 (ACA 26-36-20).

Any real or personal property taxes not paid by the fifteenth day of October are considered delinquent and the collector extends a 10% penalty against the taxpayer (ACA 26-35-501) prior to December first each year, the collector prepares a list of delinquent property taxes and delivers the list to a legal newspaper for publication.

All lands upon which the taxes have not been paid for one (1) year following the date the taxes were due, October 15, shall be forfeited to the State of Arkansas and transmitted by certification to Commissioner of State Lands for collection or sale ( ACA 26-37-101). All lands to be sold can be found on the Commissioner of State Lands website. This website has been linked under Additional Information below.

If you have questions about taxes owed or concerns about your tax statement, please call the collector's office at (870) 942-4315.

FAQS

How Can I Pay My Taxes Online?

Use our link on our website located under Additional Information. Follow steps 1-7, make sure you click the button on step 7 and print. Our office will be updated the following day of payments that have been made. The website accepts Visa, Master Card, Discover Card, Debit and e-checks. ( A processing fee does apply to all online payments.)


Why Is There A Processing Fee For Paying Taxes Online?

The Collector's Office does not charge a fee to use the online service and does not profit from this site. The company providing us with the ability to pay your taxes online charges a fee to offset the service fees that are charged by your credit card companies. In 1999, it was made possible under law that county collectors may accept payment by credit and debit cards. But would also have to charge the service fee on to the taxpayer that the office was charged from the credit card companies (ACA 26-35-506) . If our office did not use this site we would still have to extend the fees onto the taxpayer.


Is My Mortgage Company Supposed To Pay My Taxes?

Mortgage Companies make their request for tax statements each year. Their requests are mailed to the company before the taxpayers statements are mailed. If you received a tax statement on a piece of property that you think you pay escrow on, then please contact your mortgage company. Forward a copy of your tax statement to your mortgage company for payment along with your loan number. All mortgage companies are required to pay their taxes by May 31 of each calendar year. You may call our office after that date to check if a payment has been made.

How Do I Go About Getting A Correction on My Tax Statement?

All corrections on a tax statement must be made by the Assessor. Please contact the Assessor's Office at (870) 942-3711. When a correction is made, the collector's office will make the corrections and resend the tax statement.


How Are Taxes Calculated?

Taxes are calculated by multiplying the "Taxable Value" (20% of the appraised value established by the Assessor) times the "Millage Rate" (excluding improvement tax, timber tax or assessor penalties.)


What Is A Mill? 

A mill is one-tenth of one cent.
