State Taxes

State Income Taxes
     Arkansas individual income tax is graduated, up to 7 percent at the $25,000 income level. Arkansas corporate income tax is also graduated, up to 6.5%. Visit the
Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration for more information about Arkansas taxes.

State Sales Taxes
     Arkansas Sales & Use tax is 5.125%. County and cities may also enact local option sales taxes.

Real Estate Taxes
     Real property is assessed at 20% of its fair market value, and total real estate taxes are based on this assessment. To calculate the real estate taxes in a particular city, you must add the total county millage rates to the city, school district, and fire protection district millage rates. 

     For instance, if the property is valued at $50,000, it is assessed at $10,000. Total millages for Cotter would be 48.17 (6.5 + 9 + 32.67), and total taxes on the property would be $481.70.
