  6. Tax assessors board mails annual assessment notices Thu, 16 Apr 2015 00:00:00 EDT
    In accordance with state law, the Gwinnett County Board of Assessors mailed approximately 273,000 annual notices of current assessment to residential and commercial property owners today. The intent of the notice is to provide the property owners with the current value associated with their property for the ad valorem tax process compared to last year’s value and provide an estimate of taxes based on the new/current value. Property sales from the County’s real estate market are confirming the continuation of increases in property value that began last year. The general rise in values is a direct result of an improving economy and the return of foreclosures and bank sales to pre-recession levels. Approximately 40 percent of all the properties will see some change from the previous year, resulting in either an increase or decrease in value. Chief Appraiser Steve Pruitt estimates the overall net property tax digest will increase between 2 and 3 percent in 2015 once the impact of appeals and changes in certain exemptions are finalized. The property tax digest is the total value of all property subject to taxation and can change in two ways. The first is through value updates that reflect sales prices of similar properties and the second is growth caused by construction activity. The property tax estimate on the notice may not include all eligible exemptions and may be more or less than the actual tax bill. The actual tax bill will be based on the 2015 tax rates set by the Board of Commissioners and the Board of Education later this year. Property owners have 45 days from the date of the notice to file an appeal by using the statewide uniform appeal form (PT311A). Property owners who choose to appeal may submit appeals by U.S. mail, in person, or online at http://www.gwinnett-assessor.com/. Assessment notices, forms and appeal information, including FAQs, can also be found on the webpage. Property owners may also contact the Tax Assessors’ Office at assessor@gwinnettcounty.com or (770) 822-7200 for assistance. More...

    On April 10, 2015, the Gwinnett County Animal Welfare and Enforcement Center voluntarily closed for quarantine due to an outbreak of illness in sheltered dogs.

Currently, a total of 23 dogs at the shelter are experiencing symptoms, but are responding well to antibiotic treatment with doxycycline.The University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine has been working to determine the cause of the outbreak. Testing is currently underway on four affected dogs. Partial results for one dog have come back negative for Bordetella, more commonly known as kennel cough. The dog also tested negative for all strains of canine influenza. Testing did indicate signs of pneumonia, for which the cause is unknown and under further study. The center is waiting on lab cultures to determine the original cause of the pneumonia. There is no current timeframe on the final results. As soon as they are received, the Gwinnett County Animal Welfare and Enforcement Center will issue another update.The shelter will remain closed until further notice as all animals inside are still undergoing treatment. A long-term secondary shelter has been secured and will be open to the public soon. All routine shelter operations will be available in the secondary facility. This includes any owner reclaims and adoptions of animals that entered shelter care after April 10, 2015. Please check back here for updates on the secondary facility including the hours of operation and address.For more information about the illness, please click here.
