Commission sets millage rate
The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners adopted the 2017 millage rate in a 3-2 vote on Tuesday, July 18 as discussed at three recent public hearings on the proposal.

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. For properties within certain cities, the tax bill may also include city taxes for those properties.

The 2017 total County millage rate has been set at 13.51 mills, which reflects a modest increase of 0.334 mills from the 2016 total millage rate 13.176 mills. The net increase results from an increase in the County M&O (General Fund) rate of 0.574 mills and a reduction of 0.24 mills in the millage for bond debt. One mill equals a thousand dollars of assessed value. The increase results in the owner of a $200,000 home paying about $21 more this year than in 2016. This figure will vary from home to home, based on valuation changes and exemptions.
