Property Taxes

The State of Arkansas does not have a property tax; however, Arkansas cities and counties do collect a property tax, which is the principal source of revenue for funding local public schools.

Arkansas is blessed to be in the Top 10 in the nation for the lowest real estate property taxes in America. Combined with low taxes, low housing costs and 4 distinct seasons, Hot Springs Village is a great choice to live, work and play. Check out our Discovery Packages and see for yourself why Hot Springs Village is one of the premier retirement/relocation destinations in the South.
