This year it will be easier than ever for residents of Miller County to beat the property tax deadline. The Collector’s Office today announced that it is taking credit card payments, meaning residents can avoid a trip to the Collector’s Office and pay their taxes in minutes from anywhere with an Internet connection at ar.gov/millertax.
“We are thrilled to offer this convenient and mobile-friendly payment option to our taxpayers,” Miller County Collector Cathy Hardin said. “Arkansans are increasingly connected to the world through their smartphones, and I am so happy to make it easy for my constituents to pay their taxes on the go with just a few taps, if they wish.”
Hardin said taxpayers can also sign up for a service called eNotify when paying their tax bill online. After registering, eNotify will alert taxpayers by email when their statements are ready, saving the county the costs of paper, postage and manpower used in mailing out forms.
The Miller County Tax Collector partnered with the state’s eGovernment 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.
Miller County personal property and real estate taxes are due March 1 and must be paid before October 15. Residents and business owners can pay their county taxes online with a Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express credit card or an electronic check through a secure payment processing system. Payments can also be made in person at the Miller County Courthouse, by phone, or by mailing a check payable to the Miller County Tax Collector.
