Thank you in advance for this info

This should help you with income tax:

http://www.dfa.arkansas.gov/offices/...dTaxTables.pdf

Here's the sales tax info:

DFA | Office of Excise Tax Administration

In addition, there is personal property tax and real estate property tax computed yearly.

Hope this helps - and hope you make it to Arkansas!

Though the taxrs in AR are on the high side, we have found, as seniors, with all the breaks we get, our taxes are a little lower than when we lived in TX and similar to NM> Here is just an example: seniors have their property taxes frozen. thus, with the exception of a few local taxes the property taxes stay the same for life. Of coursee there is homestead deduction as well and both car and house ins is much lower.

Nita, is that your personal property tax AND real estate property tax that is frozen? And at what level, when it was first valuated? So if you buy a new car you still don't pay any more PP tax?

Asking on behalf of my father - he will be pleased to hear this :-)

Thanks for the info. I'm still not clear if there is an income tax. We are not employed so no tax withheld! We only have a retirement income and ss. We plan to start looking next month.
Again thanks for the info

Jerry and Ruth -

Here is a link - look at pages 11-12 to determine what income is exempt from tax. Social Security definitely is.

http://www.dfa.arkansas.gov/offices/...oklet_2010.pdf

Hope that helps you a little more. That's a 2010 Arkansas tax link, but I believe the general info remains the same.
