    Are you asking about 2010?  Here's what it says on this AR website:
    http://www.dfa.arkansas.gov/offices/incomeTax/eFile/Documents/AR8453-OL_2010.pdf

    If you choose to file your State of Arkansas tax return by using one of
    the online web providers, you are required to complete and mail in the
    form AR8453-OL along with any W-2s or schedules that are required
    to the Arkansas E-File Section. This form is required to be sent to the
    E-File Section within 24 hours of receiving the State acknowledgement
    of receipt of the electronically filed tax return.

      The rule has changed for tax year 2011 (returns filed in 2012).  Per http://www.dfa.arkansas.gov/offices/incomeTax/eFile/Documents/AR8453-OL_2011.pdf , *unless* you are claiming the Individuals with Developmental Disabilities Credit or the Other State Tax Credit, you are *NO LONGER* required to return the form.  You are still expected to print & sign it, but the signed copy should be kept in your files with your return and any W-2's and/or 1099's.  (If you are claiming one of the two credits above, you must submit a copy of the AR8453-OL with required documentation; but that can be done by email or fax as well as snail mail.  See the detailed instructions on page 2 of the form.)

        People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

        1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
        2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
        3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
        4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
        5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
