Note: Please wait at least 10 days before checking the status of your refund on all electronically filed returns and up to eight weeks for paper filed returns. In an effort to combat identity theft, the state department is taking additional measures to ensure tax refunds are issued to the correct individuals. That may result in tax refunds not being issued as quickly as in past years.

Arkansas Tax Deductions and Taxable Income

Arkansas taxpayers can itemize their deductions or claim the standard deduction on their state returns. The standard deduction for most filers is $2,200. Married couples filing jointly can claim a standard deduction of $4,400.

Additionally, different types of income are not considered taxable in the state of Arkansas.

For example, all Social Security benefits are not taxed. The service pay or allowance received by an active duty member of the armed forces is 100 percent exempt from Arkansas income tax. That covers all members of the armed services, including the National Guard and Reserve Units.

Tax filers can claim a $26 personal tax credit that reduces their tax liability for each filer and dependent. A political contribution credit of up to $50 ($100 for a joint return) can also be claimed on the Arkansas state return for contributions made to a number of areas.

The Child Care Credit ranges between 20 percent to 35 percent of some or all of the dependent care expenses a taxpayer pays throughout the year. The percentage available depends on their income level.
