The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners is proposing a general fund millage rate at 6.95 mills, which will constitute an increase in property taxes of 14.16%.
The board will hold three public hearings to allow residents to comment on the proposed rate:
- 9 a.m. Monday, July 11
- 2 p.m. Monday, July 11
- 6:30 p.m. Monday, July 18
All hearings will be held in the auditorium of the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center at 75 Langley Drive in Lawrenceville.
According to the county, the proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $375,000 is approximately $120.68, and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $600,000 is approximately $206.88.
“We put a lot of thought, time and diligence into this proposal,” Gwinnett County Chairwoman Nicole Hendrickson said. “The tax revenue generated will allow us to deliver the Gwinnett Standard of services while helping us maintain our roads, transit systems, senior services, libraries and other quality of life programs.”
The board will also consider millage rates for police, fire and emergency services, development and code enforcement, recreation and economic development funds.
Commissioners are also accepting online comments about the proposed 2022 millage rates. Residents can access the form here to provide feedback. The online comment period closes at 9 p.m. Monday, July 18.
Millage rates will be adopted during the board’s regular meeting at 2 p.m. Tuesday, July 19.
