Commercial Property Assessment notices incorrect, corrected notices to be mailed April 6

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – (submitted by Gwinnett County) The commercial property value assessment notices that were mailed on Friday, March 25 by the Gwinnett County Board of Tax Assessors should be disregarded. The notices were sent to the incorrect owner due to a production error. Corrected notices will be issued on April 6. The Board of Tax Assessors contracted with a private company to print and mail the 13,944 commercial property notices. “On behalf of Gwinnett County and the Board of Tax Assessors, I apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this error may cause,” said Steve Pruitt, Gwinnett County Tax Assessor.

The printing company will bear the entire cost of reprinting and mailing the notices of assessment to the correct property owners. Since the mailing date has shifted by more than a week, the last day to appeal commercial assessment values will be May 23. In addition to sending new notices of assessment next week, the printing company will mail postcards today to alert all commercial property owners about the processing error. “The County and the printing company recognizes the seriousness of this error, and they are working hard to make it right for all affected by the error,” said Pruitt.

New state legislation requires that the Board of Tax Assessors issue an assessment notice to every property owner in 2011, and every year thereafter. This issue affects only commercial property owners. Commercial property owners who wish to view their assessment notice before receiving it by mail may visit www.gwinnett-assessor.com.

Notices of current assessment for residential properties are scheduled to be mailed April 15.
