Arkansas' Logan County Tax Collector Goes High Tech

LOGAN COUNTY, Ark. --(Business Wire)--

This year, it will be easier than ever for residents of Logan County to pay their property taxes. The Tax Collector's Office announced today that it now accepts credit card payments online, meaning residents can avoid lines at the Collector's Office and pay their taxes with just a few mouse clicks or taps on their smartphone.

"I am proud to offer Logan county residents a full suite of convenient tax payment options," Logan County Tax Collector Brittany Rogers said. "We are always looking for ways to make the tax process easier for citizens, and introducing online, mobile, phone, and in-person credit card payment options will make it as simple as possible for residents to pay their taxes and avoid delinquent fees."

The Logan County Tax Collector partnered with the state's eGovernment service provider, Information Network of Arkansas (INA), to develop the secure payment system using the latest encryption technology to ensure privacy, security and data integrity. Credit card transations include a processing fee to cover the cost of the system, which INA developed for the county free of charge.

Logan County personal property and real estate taxes are due October 15. Residents can pay online by going to https://www.ark.org/propertytax/logan/index.php to look up their Tax Payer number. The system will prompt residents through payment screens and provide a confirmation and receipt page for their records. Payments may also continue to be made in person at the Collector's Offices in Paris and Booneville, by phone, or by mailing a check to the Logan County Tax Collector.
