Paying Your Property Taxes

The Department of Property Tax accepts the following types of payments: cash, checks, e-checks, money orders and credit cards. Cash payments must be submitted in person. Make checks payable to the Gwinnett County Tax Commissioner. Please pay with funds on deposit in the United States.

  • If you pay with a check, keep in mind that checks are processed, deposited and debited from your account very quickly, usually the next business day. Before you write a check, make sure your account has enough money to cover it.

  • If your check is dishonored by the bank, a service fee is assessed in accordance to state law and federal guidelines. In providing a check as payment, you authorize electronic representment if your check should return unpaid. Also, you authorize service charges and processing fees, as determined by law, to be debited from the same account via paper draft or electronic funds transfer.

Credit cards accepted with a convenience fee are VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. You may use a credit or debit card to pay property taxes online or at a self-service kiosk at any location. Credit cards are not accepted over the counter for property taxes.

Paying online with a check and banking information is free.
  
Note: We do not accept counter checks or two-party checks.

Mail

Mail payments to the Gwinnett County Tax Commissioner, Department of Property Tax, P.O. Box 372, Lawrenceville, GA 30046-0372. Please pay by mail using only a check or money order made payable to the Gwinnett County Tax Commissioner. Do not send cash by mail.

When submitting payment through the mail, include your payment stub. If you do not have one, reference your parcel ID or property address on the check or money order. Include a phone number when submitting payment without a stub.

Mail postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service on the due date is accepted as timely received. Postage meter dates will not be honored as timely if received after the due date. To ensure payments are postmarked timely, we recommend mailing at least seven working days prior to the due date.

In Person

You may pay over the counter with cash, check or money order at the main Property Tax office, located in the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center in Lawrenceville, or at any one of the Tax Commissioner’s five tag offices.  

You may also pay with a credit or debit card at a self-service kiosk at any Tax Commissioner location. A convenience fee of 2.29% (minimum $1) is applied to all credit card charges; debit cards are accepted for a flat fee of $3.95.

Tag offices only process property tax payments and provide receipts. The main Property Tax office processes payments and handles all other property tax-related transactions as well.
