Don’t accept what the Tax Assessor has to say about your property. You can appeal your Gwinnett County property taxes and have a good chance at reducing your property tax burden. The county expects most property owners to simply pay what they send out in your notice and not appeal the property taxes. This is where you can get the advantage over the county. By keeping track of your paperwork and tax records, you can even use their own records against them. Tax laws can be confusing, and we are here to help.
Your property’s tax records could contain incorrect information, resulting in a surprise when your tax notice comes in the mail.

Alternatively, you may request them by sending the Assessor an email, or checking out the official Gwinnett County website. Not only should you check your tax records for errors, but also ensure you’re receiving the correct tax breaks for the type of property you own.
