Tax Commissioner Reminder: Homestead Exemption Application Deadline

Tax Commissioner Reminder: Homestead Exemption Application Deadline

Lawrenceville – Tax Commissioner Richard Steele wants to remind homeowners that the deadline to apply for a homestead exemption for 2016 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 January 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 to apply online and upload supporting documentation, check your application status or view exemption requirements.

Email or call 770-822-8800 for exemption-related questions. 

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
