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."
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
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.
