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.

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?
