The Gwinnett County Board today sent approximately 294,000 annual assessment notices to residential and commercial property owners.
State law requires that annual notices be sent to property owners advising them of the estimated value of their property as of January 1. The Annual Valuation Notice provides last year’s value and 2022 value as well as an explanation of any change in value from the previous year.
Approximately 83% of reviews indicate that the appraised value has been adjusted to market conditions in response to changes in the real estate market throughout 2021. The Gwinnett County Appraiser’s Office uses available market data to appraise each property in Gwinnett County. in a manner consistent with state regulations.
The annual notice of assessment is not a tax bill, but includes an estimate of the property taxes for 2022. Note:
- The estimate combines the 2022 property value with the 2021 mileage rates and exemptions on file.
- 2021 tax rates are used because 2022 rates for counties, cities, and schools are not calculated until later in the year.
- Estimates on the notice do not take into account potential changes to fees such as storm water, solid waste, streetlights or speed control devices.
The Valuation Committee recommends owners review their annual appraisal notice to ensure that it accurately represents their property and the fair market value as of January 1, 2022. If owners disagree with the value of 2022, they have 45 days from the date of their assessment to appeal online, in person or by mail.
Appeals should include:
- The name of the owner
- Property address and parcel number
- Reason for appeal
- Notice of value
