A residential or commercial real estate property return is not required. A property return is not an appeal of value and is helpful in limited circumstances. If your property has changed significantly in the prior year and our office may not be aware, you may want to file a return. An example of a significant change may include renovations or substantial damage that occurred during the previous calendar year.File a 2018 Residential or Commercial Real Property Return electronically

Changes to the electronicPersonal Property Return Filing for 2018
In prior years you may have utilized Gwinnett County’s electronic return filing process. We greatly appreciate your partnering with us in this online initiative in past years. As you may know, there were changes to the PT50P Business Personal Property Return and PT50PF Application for Freeport Exemption Inventory forms mandated and published by the Georgia Department of Revenue. Unfortunately, the final versions were not available in a timeframe that allowed our office to redesign the e-filing program in a way that best supports your needs. We apologize for the inconvenience. We will be investigating a redesign of the e-filing program to support you in future years.
