Vision, Mission and Values

The Tax Commissioner is an elected Constitutional Officer responsible for every phase of collecting property taxes, from processing property homestead exemption applications through preparation of the digest, billing, accounting and disbursements.

Property taxes include those assessed on real estate, public utilities and ad valorem taxes on motor vehicles and mobile homes. These collections are disbursed to state, county, school and city governing authorities. As a tag agent for the State of Georgia, the Tax Commissioner is also responsible for the collection of all taxes, fees, and penalties for motor vehicles applicable under the Georgia Code. The Tax Commissioner enforces all regulations mandated by the state.

A large percentage of the revenue realized by the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners and Board of Education is generated from ad valorem taxes collected by the Tax Commissioner. The financial stability of these institutions largely depends upon the efficient operation of the Tax Commissioner's office. Cities also benefit from taxes collected on motor vehicles, mobile homes and heavy-duty equipment. The Tax Commissioner is also responsible for collecting special fees assessed by the Board of Commissioners.
