In the fourth annual study, SmartAsset analyzed sales, property, income, fuel and Social Security tax data to rank locations on how friendly they are for retirees. To compare the cities in our study, we looked at a hypothetical retiree who receives $50,000 in income. The list below shows which cities lead Arkansas in retirement tax friendliness.
In order of ranking:
1. Helena-West Helena
2. Hot Springs
3. Hot Springs Village
4. Greenbrier
5. Gibson
6. East End
7. Hope
8. Monticello
