The Cowbirds will owe $4,700 in property taxes next October on their 4,182-square-foot building at 202 West Emma, recently appraised at $474,750 by Arkansas CAMA Technology. The County will not ask them to pay the $50,000 plus in taxes, interest, and penalties that they should have been paying over more than a decade-long tax holiday. Don't expect the same if you get behind on your taxes.
Property taxes support our local schools, public libraries, and city and county governments. At least they do if you pay them.
