The Records Division of the Commissioner of State Lands is located in
1020 W. 4th Street, in Little Rock (on the corner of 4th & Ringo Streets). The
Records Division staff processes the payment of delinquent property taxes. If
you have unpaid taxes certified to the State of Arkansas, you may call the
Records Division at 501-683-3053, 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 Tax Delinquent Land brochure.
The Records Division also processes requests for patent information, and houses the county certification books.
If you believe you have delinquent property certified to the state, you may request a Petition to Redeem on this web site. You will need the properties’ parcel number, which is located on your real property tax bill. To search, select the "Search" button above.
