Lawrenceville – Tax Commissioner Richard Steele reminds property owners that 2017 property tax bills are due Oct. 15. Taxpayers may choose to make a single payment or partial payments as long as the total due is paid by the due date.

New for 2017: Schedule your payment in advance. See this new option on your property tax account page at www.GwinnettTaxCommissioner.com. You can also sign up for paperless billing online.

For property owners with escrow accounts, tax information is available to mortgage companies; however, it is ultimately the responsibility of the property owner to ensure taxes are paid by the due date. If there are questions about who will pay the taxes, homeowners should contact their mortgage company directly, especially if their mortgage company has recently changed.

Sold your property this year? You and the new owner will both receive copies of the 2017 tax bill. Documents signed at closing will determine who pays the taxes.

How to pay:
· Pay online by check, credit or debit card at GwinnettTaxCommissioner.com. (Check payments: free; debit card: $3.95 flat fee; credit card: 2.29 percent service fee.)
