Arkansas is a personal property tax state, but property taxes are very low. I pay about $100 property tax on 26 acres with 2 mobile homes and a 17 stall horse barn. Land prices are cheaper too, mine being on the market for less than $100,000. And I'm surrounded with another 300 acres I can ride in. Cost of living here is pretty low, heat and humidity can get high, but that's why we have A/C, right? In July and August, work gets done early in the morning and late in the evening. The rest of the year is pretty nice, with winters almost never going below 0. Tornados? Not in THIS part of the state.
