The tax commissioner’s office sends county tax bills to all property owners and mailed them in August. It also handles municipal property taxes for Berkeley Lake, Dacula and Peachtree Corners.
A judge ordered Porter to collect municipal taxes on behalf of Grayson, but she plans to appeal the decision and seek a halt on the order. All other cities in Gwinnett County handle their own billing for municipal property taxes.
As of Sept. 20, the office has collected $144 million in property taxes of the $1.5 billion owed, according to a spokesperson. Property owners can pay their tax bills online at GwinnettTaxCommissioner.com/pay by e-check, debit and credit cards.
