A CARES Act grant will cover the fees to encourage skipping the trip to help stop the spread of COVID.
Gwinnett property owners have the opportunity to pay property taxes online using debit or credit cards without incurring added convenience fees, Tax Commissioner Richard Steele announced today.
"We wanted to make it as easy as possible for people to pay their property taxes safely," Steele said. "Obtaining this grant helps us do that, and I sincerely hope people take advantage of it during the pandemic to pay online from the safety of home."
The Gwinnett County Office of the Tax Commissioner was recently informed of its successful application for obtaining a CARES Act grant to cover the cost of convenience fees for online property taxes. Taxpayers who have already paid their 2020 taxes and incurred a convenience fee will automatically receive a refund of the fees via the card they used from payment processing vendor Value Payment Systems LLC.
Online payments can be made at GwinnettTaxCommissioner.com/pay and include these options:
· E-check, debit or credit card with no added convenience fees.
· Scheduling payments in advance, as long as the total is paid by the Dec. 1 due date.
Property owners who have questions or need assistance may contact the Tax Commissioner's Office 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays via email to Tax@GwinnettCounty.com, by phone at (770) 822-8800 or initiate a chat on any device from www.GwinnettTaxCommissioner.com.
