Paying Your Property Taxes

The Department of Property Tax accepts the following payments types: cash, checks, e-checks, money orders and credit/debit cards. 

Cash payments

All cash payments must be submitted in person

 


Check Payments

Make checks payable to the Gwinnett County Tax Commissioner 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 representation 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. Collection efforts may be made by a third-party company, Envision Payment Solutions, acting on behalf of the Tax Commissioner's office. 

Note: We do not accept counter checks or two-party checks. 

Return Checks

  • Any Returned payments will incur fees and will be collected by our third party vendor,
    Envision Payment Solutions.

Tag offices only process property tax payments and provide receipts. The main Property Tax office at the Gwinnett Justice & Administration Center processes payments and handles all other property tax-related transactions. 

Why is there a convenience fee?

Convenience fees cover the cost of processing a credit or debit card transaction. The fee is paid directly to the merchant and is not retained by the Tax Commissioner’s office. These convenience fees allow the Tax Commissioner’s office to offer credit and debit card options for payment of property taxes.

Why didn't 2021 have a convenience fee?

A Federal American Rescue Plan grant paid for the convenience fees for 2021 tax payments. The grant used to pay for those fees expired on October 15, 2021.

 


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.

Drop Off

Use the drop boxes located outside any one of our five tag offices. Drop-off payments must be in the form of check or money order.
