Taxpayers can now make online payments with credit cards or electronic checks.
Paying property taxes in Izard County, Arkansas, just got a lot easier thanks to a new online payment system offered by tax collector Marilyn Downing. Residents can now avoid a trip to the Collector’s Office by visiting ar.gov/izardtax and paying their taxes online with just a few clicks on their desktop computers or mobile phones. By entering or searching parcel numbers to begin, taxpayers are guided by the online system through a series of secure payment screens and are quickly provided with a payment confirmation and a receipt for their records.
“We are thrilled to offer this convenient and mobile-friendly payment option to our taxpayers,” Izard County Tax Collector Marilyn Downing said. “We want to make it easier for people to pay their taxes quickly and avoid delinquency, and this online payment system makes that possible.” Downing noted that while she expects the online payment option to be popular, tax payments are still accepted in person or by mail.
The Izard County Tax Collector partnered with the state’s digital government service provider, Information Network of Arkansas (INA), to develop the secure payment system, which ensures privacy, security, and data integrity. Credit card transactions include a processing fee to cover the cost of the system, which INA developed for the county free of charge.
Izard County personal property and real estate taxes are due March 1 and considered delinquent after October 15. Residents and business owners can pay their county taxes online at ar.gov/izardtax with a Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express credit card, or by electronic check through a secure payment processing system. Payments can also be made in person at the Izard County Tax Collector’s office or by mail.
