Snellville will mail out, collect city taxes this year

SNELLVILLE — Residents will be receiving their city property tax bills directly from City Hall after Sept. 15. 

Due to Unforeseen circumstances in the Gwinnett County Tax Commissioner’s Office, the city is now handling all property tax billing and collections.  

Residents are asked to review all new information on tax bills and take special notice that it is important to forward your Real Estate Property Tax bill to your mortgage company as the city is not able to do so. 

“We would like to thank our citizens for having understanding and cooperating with the city regarding this change,” City Manager Butch Sanders said. “We can assure you, your bills and the collection of your taxes will be handled accurately.” 

If a property sale or purchase occurred after Jan. 1, 2021, the property taxes may have been prorated during the real estate closing. For any questions regarding tax liability in a sale/purchase year, contact the closing attorney. Residents with an escrow account must bear responsibility to ensure the taxes are paid. Bills are not mailed directly to mortgage companies. 

Payments can be made by mailing a check, cashier’s check, or money order to Snellville City Hall, Attn: Property Tax, 2342 Oak Road, Snellville GA 30078, or residents can pay in person at City Hall or online at www.snellville.org.

Payment is due by December 15. 

Call 770-985-3500 or visit www.snellville.org/property-tax for more information.  

Once a resident applies for a Homestead Exemption through Gwinnett County, any exemption that is applicable to the city will automatically post to your account with the city. Any information regarding taxes billed and collected from 2020 and back contact the Gwinnett County Tax Commissioner at 770-822-8800.
