Gwinnett County homeowners continue to reap the benefit of an innovative program I was privileged to pass in the Georgia Senate.
Along with former Senator, Superior Court Judge William "Billy" Ray, we produced a "tax freeze" option for Gwinnett County property tax payers. By filing their homestead exemptions, homeowners elect to place a hold on their value for the benefit of revaluation -- ending secret, backdoor tax hikes.
Other Georgia counties and other states have looked to our efforts as a model of reform. In the end, countless amounts of tax dollars have stayed with those who call Gwinnett County their home.
