Get out those checkbooks, Gwinnett: Your 2017 property tax bills are due very soon. 

All bills, which were mailed to property owners in August, are due by Oct. 15. The amount due can be paid all at once or in installments, as long as the full balance is covered by the due date.

Homeowners can make payments via the following methods:

  • By visiting gwinnetttaxcommissioner.com
  • By mailing a check to P.O. Box 372, Lawrenceville, Ga., 30046; 
  • By leaving a check in the drop box at any Gwinnett tag office location
  • or by paying in-person at the tax commissioner’s office (cash, check, money order, credit cards and debit cards accepted). 

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.
