Dearest Gwinnett homeowner: You should be getting your property tax bill any day now.
Kindly pay it by mid-October.
Gwinnett County announced Wednesday that property tax bills are being mailed this week and must be paid in full by Oct. 15. Homeowners can make payments via the following methods:
Partial payments are accepted as long as the bill is fully paid by the due date.
About 63 percent of the county’s residential properties saw a change in value on this year’s assessments, chief appraiser Stewart Oliver said in April. The average change in those properties was an increase of about 12 percent.
On top of that, the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners voted last month to raise the millage rate to 13.51 mills, an increase of about 0.334 mills over 2016’s rate. Officials have estimated that increase would mean about $21 more on the tax bill of a resident who owns a $200,000 home.
The county’s Board of Education opted to hold its own millage rate steady at 21.85 mills, meaning only homeowners whose properties have increased in value will pay more school taxes than in 2016.
