LAWRENCEVILLE, GA– Tax Commissioner Tiffany P. Porter is remining Gwinnett County homeowners that the deadline to apply for a homestead exemption for 2021 is April 1.
“Everyone who owns and occupies a home in Gwinnett County is very likely eligible for some type of homestead exemption,” Porter said. “It’s the best way to reduce property taxes, but homeowners must apply by April 1.”
Applications are accepted year roun , but must be received by April 1 to take effect this year. Applications received after April 1 will take effect in 2022.
Applications can be completed online at www.GwinnettTaxCommissioner.com/apply, the preferred method; alternatively, people may print, sign and deposit the completed application in drop boxes at any Gwinnett Tag Office. Once residents apply, we can help determine eligibility.
Eligibility requirements must be met, including owning and occupying the home as a primary residence as of Jan. 1 of the application year. Once an exemption is granted, there is no need to re-apply each year.
