Gwinnett lowers 2018 millage rate

The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners have adopted 2018 millage rates to fund county services by rolling back the general fund rate by 2.58 percent to 13.319, as compared to 13.51 for 2017. No county-provided services will be cut. A mill is one dollar of tax for every $1,000 of assessed property value.

The annual millage rate and individual annual property assessments determine each property owner’s property tax for county operations. Property tax bills also include school taxes, which are usually the larger portion of the total. The tax bill may also include city taxes.

The millage rates for special service districts created in 2013 and countywide levies for recreation remain unchanged from last year. Millage rates for service districts in Gwinnett are based on property location and county services provided, such as police, fire, and emergency medical. Details: www.gwinnettcounty.com.
