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 2019-2020 is 135.29
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 0.13529
School Tax = $3,382.25
2% Discount period: (Amount due if paid between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30): $3,314.61
Base period: (Amount due if paid between Oct. 1 and Nov. 30): $3,382.25
10% Penalty period: (Amount due if paid between Dec. 1 and Dec. 31): $3,720.48
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%.
