Arkansas Tax Forms Instructions and State Income Tax Information

The Alabama Department of Revenue  allows taxpayers to e-file and lists on-line tax software service providers that are approved by the state. In a similar manner as most states, Arkansas imposes an individual income tax on residents using six different tax brackets. Most of the Arkansas state tax code is similar to the federal tax code, but tax payers should be careful to note differences that arise in filing methods.

Arkansas state tax returns are due the same day that federal tax returns are due on April 15 of every year or the next busy year if tax day is on a weekend or holiday. Arkansas accepts e-filing and most major tax preparation software such as TurboTax will allow taxpayers to easily fill out forms and file their taxes.
