Property taxes due Thursday in Arkansas

You must pay your property taxes for the previous year before you will be allowed to register a new vehicle plate or renew your existing tag registration.

Property taxes can be paid beginning in March, and residents have until Oct. 15 to pay.

Each year that you pay property taxes, you are paying for the previous year’s assessment. For example, in 2020, you will be paying personal property taxes for the vehicles you assessed in 2019.
