Hello, I would like to communicate with a friend or two in Arkansas. I'm considering a move now that retirement is a reality. I have gotten some info from web sites but no information on things like property taxes, cost of licensing vehicles etc. Also any kinds of nasty little critters that I might deal with. Any help would be very appreciated and a new friendship is a welcome thing too. Thanks to all.

haha...well, since you asked, here's a thread I started a couple years ago after a particularly frustrating buggy summer.  I think it links to my other thread about blood sucking cone nose bugs....  https://permies.com/t/26576/Summer-Arkansas-Ozarks

I'll always remember the first time I saw seed ticks (the young stage of the tick) and ran down hill to the river stripping off my clothes on the way...I had never seen anything that tiny and numerous all crawling up my legs.

In order to put it in perspective though, we have lived here year round for forty-four years

As far as property taxes go, Arkansas has what's called a Homestead Tax Credit that pays $350 of the taxes on the land where you live.  It's not income related at all and anyone who owns their 'homestead' qualifies.  There can't be a lien on it though, you have to have the deed and actually be living there.

It's been a great thing for us.  Even without the 'credit' our taxes on our previous forty acres with a house, were around $450, so we owed only $100.
