This year, it will be easier than ever for residents of Nevada County to pay their property and real estate taxes. The Tax Collector’s Office today announced that it is taking credit card payments, meaning residents can avoid lines at the Collector’s Office and pay their taxes from anywhere with an Internet connection.
“We are always looking for ways to make the tax process easier for citizens,” Nevada County Tax Collector Lee Jones said. “I am proud to offer Nevada county residents these convenient ways to pay their taxes and avoid delinquent fees – whether online, using their mobile phones or calling in their payment.”
Payment options now available to Nevada County residents include:
The Nevada County Tax Collector partnered with the state’s eGovernment service provider, Information Network of Arkansas (INA), to develop the secure payment system to ensure privacy, security and data integrity. Credit card transactions include a processing fee to cover the cost of the system, which INA developed for the county free of charge.
Nevada County personal property and real estate taxes are due March 1 and delinquent after October 15, 2014. Residents can pay online by going to ar.gov/nevadaproptax 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 Office in Prescott, by phone, or by mailing a check to the Nevada County Tax Collector.
