Arkansas Local Sales Tax Rate Changes, October 2013


 Arkansas announces state and local sales tax rate changes, effective October 2013.

The Department of Finance and Administration has announced several upcoming local sales and use tax rate changes. This comes on the heels of a statewide rate increase this July.

  • Green Forest, in Carroll County, will have a new rate of 2.25%.
  • Pocahontas, in Randolph County, will have a new rate of 2.0%.

Fun fact

Osceola rescinded it's 1% sales and use tax on July 1, 2013, only to enact a new 1% sales and use tax on October 1, 2013.

Keeping track of sales and use tax changes can be exhausting. Automation makes it easy.
