Tax Calculation Example:

A taxpayer residing in the Pocono Mountain School District owns a property that has an assessed value¹  of $25,000.

The current School District millage rate for the fiscal year 2016-2017 is 137.29

The amount due for school taxes is calculated as follows:

School Tax = Assessed Value of Property x Current Year Millage Rate

School Tax = $25,000 x 0.13729

School Tax = $3,432.25

2% Discount period: (Amount due if paid between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30): $3,363.61

Base period: (Amount due if paid between Oct. 1 and Nov. 30): $3,432.25

10% Penalty period: (Amount due if paid between Dec. 1 and Dec. 31): $3,775.48

¹ Assessed Value is determined by the Monroe County Assessment Office and is calculated by using 25% of the property's current market value at the time of the property's assessment. In the above example, the Assessed Value of $25,000 is calculated by multiplying the Market Value of $100,000 by 25%.
