Welcome to the Arkansas Secretary of State Franchise Tax Filing System

This site allows taxpayers to pay their franchise taxes online with a credit card or electronic check. Accepted credit cards include Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. An electronic check is a method of debiting the funds from your checking account just as you would write a check.

Processing fees: $5.00 for credit card; $3.00 for electronic check.

Taxes due on or before May 1. Substantial penalties apply after May 1.
