Eleven of Luzerne County’s 12 school districts have increased real estate taxes for the 2018-19 fiscal year, according to new county assessment office records.

Northwest Area School District is the lone exception, with a tax rate remaining at 10.7452 mills.

A mill is $1 tax on every $1,000 in assessed value of real estate.

For example, the owner of a $100,000 property would pay $1,074.52 in school taxes in Northwest Area (the assessment divided by 1,000 multiplied by 10.7452).
