Frequently Asked Questions

"I GOT A TICKET, WHAT DO I DO?"
- Traffic tickets in Grant County are issued by the deputies, troopers and city police officers.  You should first call the number on the ticket and see how much the fine will be.  If a city officer gave you the ticket, call (870) 942-5512.  If a deputy or a trooper gave you the ticket, call (870) 942-5039.  Once you determine the amount of the fine you have two options:  come to court on the day listed as your court date on the ticket or mail the fine amount to the address listed on your ticket prior to the court date.  Probation and other questions of the court should be directed to the District Court Clerk by calling (870) 942-3464

"HOW DO I GET AN ARKANSAS CONCEALED HANDGUN LICENSE (CHL)?"
- You can go to our home page and click on the link for the Arkansas State Police web site.  This link will provide you with all of the information needed to acquire a CHL.  You can get the name of a local certified instructor from the ASP site.

"HOW DO I GET A COPY OF AN ACCIDENT REPORT OR A REPORT THAT A DEPUTY HAS COMPILED?"
- Traffic accident reports can be obtained from the Sheriff's Office (GCSO), the Sheridan Police Department (SPD) or the Arkansas State Police (ASP).  If your accident happened in the city, call the PD. If it occurred in the county and was investigated by a trooper, call (870) 767-8550.  If it was investigated by a deputy, call (870) 942-5039.  There is a fee for each report and reports can be picked up or mailed.  Theft and other reports which are completed by deputies can be obtained by calling or coming to the Sheriff's Office at 101 West Pine Street in Sheridan.

"I HAVE INFORMATION THAT I WANT TO TELL THE POLICE BUT I DON'T WANT TO USE MY NAME?"
- Email us using the link on our home page or call our tip line listed on the home page.

"I AM A DISABLED AMERICAN VETERAN, HOW DO I APPLY FOR MY TAX EXEMPTION WITH GRANT COUNTY?" 
-  The tax collector's office must receive a DAV letter confirming tax payer is 100 percent exempt.  Our office must have an updated copy EVERY year before the veteran can receive exemption.  The DAV letter must be received before October 10th of EVERY year - NO Exceptions!  The veteran can receive exemption on their principle place of residence, but can only claim ONE principle place of residence.  The veteran can receive exemption on land adjoining principle place of residence, unless the land is occupied by an additional residence.  The veteran can receive exemption on personal property taxes as well.  The taxpayer will receive a copy of their statement in the mail detailing any exemptions and/or taxes owed that are not exempt by DAV.  If the veteran is NOT 100 percent disabled, the benefits/exemptions may be different than what has been described in this answer.  Your personal DAV letter should describe what benefits you are eligible for.  Please come by or call our office so we can assist you with any additional DAV questions.

"I KNOW A PERSON WHO IS A REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER AND THAT PERSON LIVES IN GRANT COUNTY. WHY IS THAT PERSON NOT LISTED AS A SEX OFFENDER ON YOUR WEB SITE?"
-  State law allows level two thru four offenders to be listed on sites like ours.  A level two can only be listed if the offender is over 18 years of age and the victim was under 14.  This means no level ones and only certain level twos can be listed on our site.  Also, a person, once convicted, goes through a state ordered assessment which attempts to determine the offenders likelihood of re-offending.  To answer your question, there are three reasons the person you know is not listed: (1) the person is a level one and can't be listed, (2) the person is a level two that can't be listed, or (3) the person was recently convicted and has not completed the state assessment that assigns them an offender level (assessments after conviction usually take approximately six months).

"I BOUGHT ITEMS AT LOWES IN PINE BLUFF AND PAID TO HAVE THE ITEMS DELIVERED TO MY HOME IN GRANT COUNTY.  WHEN I LOOKED AT MY RECEIPT, I SAW A GRANT COUNTY TAX - WHAT IS THAT?  WHY WOULD I PAY GRANT COUNTY TAXES AT A STORE IN JEFFERSON COUNTY?"
- This tax has nothing to do with Grant County and, to our knowledge, the money does not come to Grant County.  We called Lowes' about this.  If you pay Lowe's to deliver an item, they tax you for the delivery based on where you live.  In other words, you pay taxes on the delivery based on the lawful percentage at your home (or place of delivery). The Grant County Tax Collector's office only collects personal and real estate taxes that are assessed through the Grant County Assessor's Office.  We do not collect ANY type of sales tax.
