Personal Property Returns

The Gwinnett County Assessor’s Office will accept Personal Property Tax Returns from January 1 to April 1. If you own a business with furniture, fixtures, machinery, equipment, and/or inventory, an airplane, or a boat and/or motor, you must file a return. You are responsible for reporting all taxable personal property or penalties will be assessed. We mail Personal Property Tax Return forms as a courtesy, but not receiving one does not relieve your responsibility for filing a return.

Distributors and/or manufacturing businesses may be eligible for an inventory exemption.  An exemption application must be filed within the allotted timeframe in order to be considered for the exemption. Visit the Business Personal Property webpage for more information.

To file your Personal Property Return electronically, you will need the eFile security number located on the Personal Property Return form that was mailed January 10, 2015. Step-by-step instructions are available for completing an online electronic Personal Property Return form.

If you have additional questions, please contact the Gwinnett County Assessor's Office at 770.822.7220 or by email at

Important: Metered mail will not be accepted as proof of a timely filing of a tax return. Only the USPS cancellation stamp will be considered when determining if the return has been filed on time.

Important notice: Metered mail is not accepted as proof of timely filing of a tax return or appeal.  Only the USPS cancellation stamp or certified mail tracking will be considered when determining if either has been filed on time.  In the case that the Gwinnett County Assessors’ Office considers a tax return or appeal as being filed late, the burden of proof falls on the taxpayer.
