In Heber Springs, Arkansas, the government imposes a tax (a legally-mandated payment made to the government) on real property. "Real property" is specified as any piece of land, or object permanently or semi-permanently fixed to the land (such as buildings, trees, minerals, etc.).

Property taxes in Heber Springs, Arkansas are calculated as a percentage of the appraised value of the property. Property taxes are paid to the state or local government at regular (typically yearly) intervals.

The federal government almost never imposes property taxes directly. Property taxes are gathered nearly always by state, county, and local governments.

How Property Tax is Calculated in Heber Springs, Arkansas

Heber Springs, Arkansas calculates its property taxes by requiring property owners to pay a set percentage of the appraised value. While the property tax rate varies widely across different parts of the country, they fall into the 1-5% range.

To levy this tax, Heber Springs, Arkansas tax authorities must initially figure out how much a house or piece of land is worth.

In many ways, the value of a piece of land is relative. After all, many individuals ascribe sentimental value to their homes, which goes well beyond its market value. To guarantee that the system is equal, the government uses only objective standards to determine value.

To that end, the Heber Springs, Arkansas employees in charge of appraising land look at objective facts to calculate value, like the size of the land and any buildings on it, the way in which the land may legally be utilized (zoning), and the health of the local real estate market.
