Beginning with tax year 2021, the City of Lawrenceville began billing and collecting property taxes for the City of Lawrenceville.

Ad valorem taxes, more commonly known as property taxes, are levied for the maintenance and operations of the City of Lawrenceville. Property taxes are also levied for certain public improvements funded by voter approved general obligation debt (bonds). The basis for ad valorem taxation is the fair market value of the property, as determined by the Gwinnett County Board of Assessors. The tax is levied on the assessed value of the property, which is 40% of the fair market value (unless otherwise specified by law). The amount of tax is determined by the tax millage rate.
Example: $250,000 (home value)
The City of Lawrenceville Finance Department is responsible for the billing and collection of property taxes for our City and relies solely on the Gwinnett County Board of Assessors for tax information that pertains to property owners, fair market and assessed values, and property/billing addresses.
