Tax Commissioner Reminder: Homestead Exemption Application Deadline

Lawrenceville, Ga., (March 21, 2014) – Tax Commissioner Richard Steele wants to remind homeowners that the deadline for all homestead exemptions for 2014 is April 1 and urges them to apply.

“Now is the time to make sure you are taking advantage of everything that can reduce how much you have to pay,” said Steele.

You must own and occupy the property as your primary residence as of Jan. 1 of the tax year for which application is being made. No exemptions are granted automatically; however, once an exemption is granted, there is no need to apply each year.

Email tax@gwinnettcounty.com or call (770) 822-8800 for exemption-related questions or to request an application.

The Tax Commissioner of Gwinnett County is a constitutionally-elected official responsible for billing and collection of property taxes and for administering homestead exemptions. Serving also as an agent for the State of Georgia, the Tax Commissioner registers and titles motor vehicles and collects all associated revenue. Learn more at http://www.GwinnettTaxCommissioner.com.
