    Tax Calculation Example:

    A taxpayer residing in the Pocono Mountain School District owns a property that has an assessed value of $100,000.

    The amount due for school taxes is calculated as follows:

    Current Year Millage Rate = 21.44/1000

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

    School Tax = $100,000 x .002144
