I have provided you with the updated millage rate and formulas to use for each school district in the 189th district. Please use the formula below for the school district in which you live.
Please remember this is a tool to help you know your bill amount before it arrives. School districts levy this tax and create the millage rates; any questions or concerns with the millage rates (or previous millage rates) should be directed to your local school board members.
You only need to apply for the Homestead Reduction once – and once applied, this will automatically show on your bill. If you need an application, please click here.
*Commercial properties are not able to receive the Homestead Reduction (noted below in formula) since they are not a residence. Do not subtract that amount on commercial calculations.
FORMULA BY SCHOOL DISTRICT (PRIMARY RESIDENCES ONLY):
- Pocono Mountain: Assessed Value x .019905 - $447.05 (Homestead) = Taxes Owed
- Pleasant Valley : Assessed Value x .0229179 - $508.41 (Homestead) = Taxes Owed
- East Stroudsburg: Assessed Value x .03072 - $441.57 (Homestead) = Taxes Owed
- Stroudsburg : Assessed Value x .02556 - $379.85 (Homestead) = Taxes Owed
Example for ESASD - $185,000 x .03072 – 441.57 = $5,241.63
