LAWRENCEVILLE -- Tax bills will be in the mail beginning Friday.Gwinnett Tax Commissioner Richard Steele announced Thursday the beginning of the property tax bill mailing, which will be complete by Wednesday.
Unlike previous years, where the county had two due dates, in 2012, the tax bills have a single-installment due date of Oct. 15.
Steele said taxpayers who prefer to pay in two installments may do so, as long as the total is paid by Oct. 15.
Property owners have several options to pay the tax, including paying online by check or credit card at www.GwinnettTaxCommissioner.com, paying by check using 24-hour drop boxes at all tax commissioner offices, paying in person during business hours or mailing payments to P.O. Box 372, Lawrenceville, Ga. 30046.
For property owners with an escrow account, tax information will be made available to the mortgage company, but Steele noted that the ultimate responsibility for the taxes lies with the property owner. Homeowners with concerns should contact their mortgage company directly, especially if the company has recently changed, he said.
