The Baxter County Tax Collector’s Office is reminding the public that 2023’s tax deadline is quickly approaching.
This year, the tax deadline will fall on Oct. 16 instead of Oct. 15 due to the deadline falling on a Sunday, giving taxpayers one extra day to make good on their taxes.
To pay taxes, residents can either make payments at the Baxter County Tax Collector’s Office in person through cash, credit or check, or they can use the drop box located outside the front door of the office.
Residents can also mail in their payments to the Baxter County Tax Collector’s Office at 8 East 7th Street in Mountain Home.
For those looking to go digital, this year’s taxes can be paid using the QR code found on tax reminders that went out earlier this year, or at www.baxtercountyar.gov. Residents may also pay by phone during working hours, though Baxter County Tax Collector Teresa Smith said residents may have difficulty getting through due to the large volume of calls to her office during tax season.
Residents using a debit or credit card can expect a small processing fee to be added to their payment.
Failure to pay taxes by Oct. 16 will result in a 10% penalty, with interest applying on real estate. Delinquent taxpayers will have their property and their names listed in a legal newspaper following a Dec. 1 deadline.
