Property Tax

Thanks for making Duluth your home!

The Mayor & Council of the City of Duluth have approved the 2019 millage rate.  It will remain the same at 6.551 mill. 2019 Property Tax notices will be mailed out the first week of September and due in full by December 15, 2019.

The City of Duluth is responsible for billing, collecting and disbursing city property taxes. Property includes not only real estate but also personal property; boats, airplanes, and business assets. Tax amounts are calculated using values that are determined by the Gwinnett County Tax Assessor’s Office and the millage rate set by City Council.

Liens were filed with Gwinnett County Superior Court on any 2018 unpaid property taxes as of April 26, 2019.

Properties that have past due taxes back to 2017 have been sent to Appalachian Mountain Services to proceed with tax sale of the property.   

Current amounts due can be found online at or contact the property tax office at 770-476-3434.

Stormwater fees are included on the tax bill and are categorized and charged by type of property. The fee for most detached single-family homes is currently $36.00 and for most condominiums and townhomes, the fee is currently $14.40. The fee for non-residential properties is based on a number of impervious surface areas such as roofs, patios, sidewalks, and other paved surfaces. For more information about stormwater please visit the city’s Web site for Educational Brochures or contact the stormwater department of the Community Development office at 770-476-1790.
