Arkansas 2013: U.S. Government Interest

In Arkansas, interest you receive from direct United States obligations, its posses¬sions, the State of Arkansas, or any political subdivision of the State of Arkansas is exempt from tax.

Certain Arkansas customers, who received tax exempt interest from U.S. obligations, may have filed an incorrect Arkansas tax return.

TurboTax has fixed this issue.
