Gwinnett County Tax Assessment
Gwinnett County tax assessment notices apparently went out without a hitch this year as I have seen nothing on their website or in the media to indicate otherwise. All of the residential and commercial Gwinnett County tax assessment notices were to be sent on April 6 and based on all of the Gwinnett County tax assessment notices that I have received, that is the date they went out. The deadline to appeal tax assessments in Georgia is now uniformly 45 days after the tax assessment notice date, State-wide. That makes the deadline to appeal Gwinnett County tax assessment notices May 21, 2012.
It appears that the Gwinnett County tax assessors are standing their ground on most of their commercial values. I have received copies of many Gwinnett County tax assessment notices already and all are "no change" in values except for a few vacant parcels with already small values. I guess a reduction from a $3,700 market value estimate to a $2,000 market value estimate isn't anything to sneeze at, in percentage terms, but we aren't talking about a lot of tax dollars either. I haven't seen anything with a value in six digits with a reduction, or an increase for that matter.
