Duluth, Gwinnett Leaders To Meet on HB386

The meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25. at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center.

Duluth leaders are planning to participate in a special meeting with Gwinnett leaders. 

The reason for the special Gwinnett meeting is a session on a new Georgia law, HB386, which was passed during the recent session of the General Assembly. The meeting, which also will involve other Gwinnett cities, is set for 5 p.m. at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center in Lawrenceville.

The City of Duluth issued a notice about the meeting and possible quorum of Duluth City Council members Monday.

The bill, which was signed into law by Gov. Nathan Deal in April 2012, affects many aspects of taxes and revenue collection in Georgia.

A Gwinnett County spokesperson noted that the county and Gwinnett cities will be meeting to discuss local government energy excise tax options associated with HB386. Further details were not available.

According to a newsletter from the Georgia Society of CPAs, HB386 affects such things as tax exemptions for married couples and sales taxes on motor vehicles.

So we are suppose to fund businesses now? When will the handouts end. I know when, at the next election if they vote for it.

I am assuming this is the same "tax" that is being discussed http://www.gwinnettdailypost.com/news/2012/sep/22/county-considers-energy-tax-replacement/
