Board sets 2019 millage rate the same as last year

The Gwinnett Board of Commissioners on Tuesday, July 16 adopted the same general fund millage rate as last year, 7.209 mills. The Board originally advertised setting a higher millage rate at 7.4 mills and took public comments at three public hearings and online.

Property taxes are based on millage rates set by county government, the schools, and cities. One mill equals a dollar tax per thousand dollars of assessed property value.

The Gwinnett County Tax Assessor calculates the total value of all property in the county, called the tax digest, by conducting annual updates of residential and commercial property. Gwinnett property owners have been notified of this year’s assessed values

The 2019 total property tax millage rate for property owners in unincorporated Gwinnett County will be 13.319. The millage rates for special service districts created in 2013 and countywide levies for recreation also 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.
