As I said last week my office has been in the process of identifying delinquent accounts and sending new statements. Did you know that the slightest change in your name will create a completely new taxpayer account for you? I am seeing this a lot and I want to make everyone aware. For example, if you have real estate under John Doe, personal property under John F Doe, business personal under Jane and John Doe, and business real estate under John F and Jane Doe that means you will have 4 different taxpayer accounts with us. That is not to mention if you have real property or business property under a completely different name. Therefore, it is important for you to check your statement each year when you receive it in March. We try our best to catch it and combine accounts before statements go out, but we are human and miss things, especially if there is nothing to indicate they should be combined.
No one knows better than you what you own and what you should be paying. Please let us know if we miss something :)

Last year my office started a project focused on delinquent taxes. As a result, in 2020 we collected $205,040.54 in delinquent taxes for the years 2011 - 2017. I am so proud of my staff for continuing to work so hard on this project.

If you received the notice below, please be aware that JURY SERVICE IS CANCELLED FOR MAY 5TH. You do not need to report to the fairgrounds on May 5th.

If you didn't get one of these but you know you're in the pool, don't worry! Our judge's will need another jury soon and we will randomly select a different group to notify with a report date.

And thank you to everyone who has completed a questionnaire or was ready to report for duty this week. Court can move forward because of your participation in jury selection! We'll see you soon!

I’ve been hearing about people receiving mail regarding land for sale in Miller County. More than likely this is a scam. A quick search on actdatascout.com can tell you the owners name and it does not match the company. For peace of mind I highly recommend everyone sign up for Property Fraud Alert. You should have received this insert with your statement this year.

If you are trying to call our office please be patient with us. When we moved to the Landmark Building we got a new phone system through Meriplex. This phone system is internet based and has not been working correctly, as I'm sure a lot of you know. Please know that we are trying to get it fixed as soon as possible.

Just wanted to send out a quick reminder. On your tax statement you MAY have two different tax amounts. One for personal property and one for real estate. Or you may have just one or the other. Please remember that personal property is for any vehicles, boats, AVTs, etc. that you owned in the year 2020. Also, the homestead credit is only applied to real estate that you live in and own.

Tentative date for Miller County auction is September 21st. I will update as more information becomes available.

Tentative date for Miller County auction is September 21st. I will update as more information becomes available.

We have good news! We’re holding auctions this year!

We’re excited to announce that we’ll begin holding auctions July 7, offering properties that were scheduled for auction in 2020. The auction season will run through mid-November, with a break Oct. 1-19 to accommodate the Oct. 15 property tax deadline.

We continue to monitor the ongoing health situation and will adjust or change the auction schedule if it becomes necessary. Auctions will be conducted in strict accordance with any health guidelines that may be in place at the time of the auctions.

Next year, we plan to hold an expanded auction season. The 2022 season will offer properties that were due for auction in 2021 and 2022.

The catalog for July and August auctions is currently available on our website at www.cosl.org/catalog.aspx. It will be updated as the season progresses, so bookmark that page and check back.

NOTE: you can click on the county name to see specific property info for each county, or click “view parcels” for the traditional list of properties available. If you’re searching for property in a certain area, go to arlands.cosl.org. Properties currently available for post-auction sale are in blue; upcoming auction parcels are red.

TL:DR
DELAYED auction season, July through November.
ALL health guidelines in place at time of auction will be strictly enforced.
Contingent on COVID situation – things can change.
Properties offered WERE due for auction in 2020.
2021-2022 properties will be offered in 2022.

Tax statements will be sent out this week. When you receive your statement please review carefully. If you have both personal property and real estate make sure it is all on the statement as well as any business personal. Also, please verify you are receiving your homestead credit. I just ran a report that is 19 pages long of people who are not receiving their homestead credit. Amendment 79 and Act 142 provide that homeowners may be able to receive up to a $375 tax credit on the property that is their principal place of residence. Also, provide that homeowners receive a freeze on their assessed value if they are 65 years of age or older or 100% disabled. Contact the Miller County Assessor's Office at 870-774-1502 for more information.

College Hill Drug and Medical will be hosting another vaccine clinic this Thursday from 9a-4p at the Church of the Living God. Below are additions of Phase 1B that are eligible. OEM and CHD are working on additional clinics in Fouke and Doddridge. OEM would like feedback from citizens who are interested in the Fouke and Doddridge clinics so please share this with other pages in those areas. CHD asks that necessary paperwork be picked up in advance at the pharmacy on East St. Volunteers are needed for these events.

We can now take payments! 😀 It has been a rough week yall but we are fully moved into the Landmark building located at 210 Stateline. At this time we do not have internet so we are unable to accept credit cards but we can take cash or check.
Tax statements probably won’t be mailed out until the second week of March but our books will be open on March 1st.
Thank you all for being so understanding during this time. Please continue to bear with us as we slowly bring operations back up to 100%. We are slowly getting there.

I have to add that I have AMAZING staff! There is simply no way this could have been accomplished without them. They always go above and beyond! Sheila Houston-Sinyard Miranda Bea Candy Cunningham Cates Becky Bowers Burton Kelli Teague

As you all know our courthouse sustained major water damage this past week. All computers in my office and our server have been moved into a dehumidifying chamber to preserve them. The process will be complete tomorrow and we will begin moving to the Landmark building in downtown Texarkana located at 210 Stateline. This is a temporary move but may last up to a year. I wish I could give an accurate timeframe of when we will be up and running but I simply can’t. I can tell you that my hope is to be up and running by the end of the week. I will post updates to this page as often as I can. Please know I have been working day and night to get this accomplished. My staff worked hard today getting our office packed up and will continue for the remainder of the week getting set up at our new location. Please have patience with us during this process. I know this may be an inconvenience for you and I am truly sorry. This was completely out of our control but we are working hard to get operations back up and running. Our main goal is to serve you and we hope to be able to do that soon!!
I can be reached by email at any time. [email protected]

As you may have heard we had some busted water pipes at the courthouse this week. This is some of the damage from my office. We have damage from the ceiling down to the floor tile and carpet.
In a little over a week tax books will open and many of you will come to the courthouse. Please bear with us. It’s going to be a mess for a little while.
