Property Appeal Season 2016

Residential and Commercial Real Property
Most Residential and Commercial real property Annual Notice of Assessments were mailed on April 8, 2016. Appeal rights for Notices dated April 8 expired on May 23, 2016. Your property appeal rights extend for 45 days from the date on your 2016 Annual Notice of Assessment.

If your Residential or Commercial real property Assessment Notice is dated after April 8, 2016, and you are within your 45-day appeal filing period, please call us at 770.822.7200 to assist you in filing your Residential or Commercial property appeal.

Personal Property Appeal (Aircraft, Marine and Business Inventory and Equipment)
Most tangible business assets, aircraft, and marine 2016 personal property Annual Notice of Assessments were mailed May 16, 2016. The deadline to file an appeal is 45 days from the date on the Annual Notice of Assessment. 

To file a personal property appeal, please click the link below to access the PT311A personal property appeal form. Once you have completed the form, either hand-deliver to the Gwinnett County Assessor’s Office or mail with a USPS postmark to: Gwinnett County Tax Assessor, 75 Langley Drive, Lawrenceville, GA 30046. There are no exceptions and appeals filed by email or fax cannot be accepted.

Please note: If your assessed value for 2016 was established by an appeal decision within the prior two years, filing an appeal may jeopardize the “frozen” value established by O.C.G.A. 48-5-299c. This may result in an onsite inspection and a new notice of assessment, the value of which may be less than or greater than the initial 2016 value.

Once you have filed your 2016 appeal, you can check the status of your appeal as it moves through the process. Please allow three days after filing your appeal to begin checking your status online.

Important notice: If you are submitting your return by mail, metered mail will not be accepted as proof of a timely property tax return. Only the USPS cancellation stamp will be considered when determining if the return has been filed on time.


Motor Vehicle Title Ad Valorem Tax

The Georgia Department of Revenue produces an estimate of value, which is required for use in determining the amount of “title tax” you owe upon the transfer of a vehicle. The title tax is 7 percent of the state's determined value. If you disagree with the value, you must appeal to the Board of Assessors no later than 45 days of the payment of your title ad valorem tax.

Please use the state’s PT311A-MV form to start the process. Submit copies of the registration documents and photos of the vehicle along with the completed appeal form. Photos need to include all four sides, inside, damage (if any), and odometer reading. If the vehicle was recently purchased, please include the purchase price on the appeal form or provide a copy of the bill of sale. The appeal package may be mailed, emailed, or delivered to the Assessors’ Office. You may also schedule a visit to our location for a physical inspection. For more information, call 770.822.7288 or email MotorVehicleAppraiser@gwinnettcounty.com


Appraisal Staff Conducting Field Visits

Gwinnett County Assessor’s real estate appraisal staff visits several thousand properties throughout the county each year. Field visits are a routine process completed by either a County appraiser or a contracted appraiser from LMC or Tyler Technologies. Gwinnett County vehicles will be clearly marked with emblems and personnel will have picture IDs and business cards.

Routine field visits consist of verifying existing or new construction data, obtaining exterior measurements, and taking photos of the property. Residential property field visits are exterior only inspections, which do not require entry into buildings or assistance by the resident. If you are not at home, the review will be conducted and an informational door hanger will be left. In some instances, inspections of commercial property may require some assistance, depending on the nature of the business. If you have any questions, please contact the Tax Assessor's Office at 770.822.7200 or by email at  taxpayer.services@gwinnettcounty.com

Thank you for allowing us to ensure the accuracy of our records.
