Property taxes due this coming Wednesday

Just thought I would post a reminder that property and personal property taxes in Arkansas are due this Wednesday. If you don't pay on time, there will be a 10% late fee.

Many home owners pay their taxes as part of their monthly mortgage payment. The annual tax is divided into 12 and the home owner pays 1/12 each month. Then when tax bills are sent out, the bank pays the property tax, usually in April or May. These folks can rest easy, since their property taxes have already been paid.

But if your bank is not paying your property taxes as part of your mortgage and you didn't pay them last spring when the bills were sent out, then you only have a few more days to pay them. There are also those pesky personal property taxes. Those are also due now, if you haven't already paid them when you got your bill last spring.

One good thing if you don't want to stand in line at the county courthouse in Washington or Benton County--you can now pay them on line with a credit card or have them directly deducted from your checking account. But if you want to pay from your checking account in Washington County, make sure you have your tax bill handy, since you will need it for security purposes. There is also an extra charge in Washington County to pay on line. I'm not sure about Benton County, since I don't live there.

The web addresses for the two county websites are:
