Duluth GA CPA: Be Sure that you Gwinnett County Business Pays Its Lowest Legal Possible Property Taxes on its Personal Property
Understanding the Freeport Exemption: Gwinnett County voters elected to exempt the following classes of commercial and industrial inventory:
• Class 1 – Raw materials & goods in process of manufacture – 100% exemption
• Class 2 – Finished goods produced in Georgia within last 12 months – 100% exemption
• Class 3 – Finished goods kept/stored in Georgia within the last 12 months and destined for shipment out-of-state – 100% exemption
The Cities of Buford, Duluth, Grayson, Sugar Hill, and Suwanee have also elected to exempt 100% of all qualified inventory.
The deadline for filing an application for Freeport Exemption with the Board of Tax Assessors is March 1 to receive the full exemption. Click the link below for more information on homestead exemptions: http://www.etax.dor.ga.gov/ptd/adm/taxguide/exempt/homestead.aspx
Please review the categories above and confirm what type of inventory/assets your company has relative to the three Classes Above. It was my understanding that when the property tax report was filed that you did the Freeport Exemption was not applicable. Please review advise. Below is a link to the Gwinnett County website where you can learn more about the Exemption:

As rules vary from City, to County to State please be sure to read and correctly apply the law where your business is located.
