    The millage rate for Tulpehocken Area School District property owners is 26.75.
     
    The millage rate is the rate which the board sets for the taxation of the assessment on a property. Your current school district real estate tax cam be calculated by multiplying your assessed value by the millage rate as shown in the example below:
     
    Assessed Value 100,000 X Millage Rate .02675 = School Tax $2,675.00
     
    If you believe that your property is assessed incorrectly, please contact the Berks County Assessment Office at 610-478-6262
     
     If you do not receive a tax bill, it is your responsibility as a homeowner to contact your elected tax official.
