The primary function of the Collector's office is to collect property taxes. Property tax is an important source of revenue for county governments. Revenue generated by the property tax is used to finance education, roads, hospitals, libraries, public safety and for the general operation of Sharp County.
Property taxes are based on two kinds of property: real property and personal property. Real property is all tangible real estate that is fixed, immovable property. This includes land and all improvements made to that land, such as buildings, homes and barns. All property, except agricultural land, has an assessed value that is equal to its market value.
Personal property is everything that is subject to ownership, tangible and movable. Items of household furniture and furnishings, clothing, appliances and other personal property used within a home were exempted from personal property tax. Examples of taxable personal property are vehicles and boats. In 2001, a $300 homestead real estate property tax credit was granted to all homeowners and the appraised value was frozen for all homeowners over 65 living in Arkansas. Personal property taxes are due by October 15th of each year.
