When are taxes for real estate or personal property due? Personal or Real Estate taxes are due March 1 through October 15 each year. Any unpaid taxes after the October 15 deadline are considered delinquent and the collector assesses a 10% penalty against the taxpayer. § 26-35-705 It is the taxpayers responsibility to make sure their personal property and real estate taxes are paid on time. Failure to receive a statement does not excuse you from the taxes or the penalties and interest.

If I'm 65 or older or disabled, do I receive lower taxes?
If you are a home-owner and your home is your principal place of residence and you are 65 or older or disabled, you will qualify to have your property value frozen. This means that the property value on your home will not increase unless there is an addition to the home. The tax amount may change if there is a change in the millage rate, but the value will stay the same. Simply bring or send a copy of your driver’s license or any proof of age or your disability papers and the Real Estate Assessor be happy to apply the Freeze to your property values. You can also contact them at 479.784.1516.
What about city liens?
