The Real Estate Division of the Commissioner of State Lands is located in 1020
W. 4th Street, in Little Rock (on the corner of
4th & Ringo Streets). This Division processes the payment of delinquent property
taxes. If you have unpaid taxes certified to the State of Arkansas, you may call
the Real Estate Division at 501-324-9422, or visit our office, to request a
Petition To Redeem - a legal document noting the amount of taxes, penalties and
interest due on delinquent property. The petition must be signed, notarized and
returned to the State Land Office with proper payment.
Note: Only the record
owner, his/her heirs, or agent acting on behalf of the record owner may redeem
property by paying the back taxes.
To learn more about redeeming tax delinquent
property, please review the "How to Redeem Delinquent Property" section of our
How to Buy
Delinquent Land brochure.
