Example of Completed Heading

Arkansas tax records complement land records and can be used in place of censuses before 1820 or to supplement the years between censuses. Because only persons who owned taxable property were listed, many residents were not included in tax lists. There may also be gaps of several years in the tax records of some counties. For more information see the wiki page Arkansas Taxation.

Example of a Completed Section

See Jackson County, Arkansas Taxation
