2017 Property Tax/Rent Rebate Forms Now Available Featured

From Rep. Rosemary Brown:

Forms for the state’s 2017 Property Tax/Rent Rebate program are now available for download from the Department of Revenue’s website. Paper forms will be available in the coming weeks. Eligible participants can receive a rebate of up to $650 based on their rent or property taxes paid in 2017. The program benefits eligible Pennsylvanians who are 65 years or older, widows and widowers 50 years or older, and those 18 years or older with disabilities. The income limit is $35,000 a year for homeowners and $15,000 annually for renters, and half of Social Security income is excluded.

Residents DO NOT need to pay a private entity for assistance in filing the forms. Copies of the forms, as well as assistance with filing them, are available at no cost at my district office. Applications are due by June 30, 2018. To receive assistance from my office, walk-in anytime Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Applicants should be prepared to provide all the necessary income, property tax or rental information required to process claims quickly and accurately. Please call my office at 570-420-8301 with any questions, or click here for more information. The Property Tax/Rent Rebate program is one of many initiatives supported by the Pennsylvania Lottery, which dedicates its proceeds to support programs for older Pennsylvanians.

In addition to the Property Tax/Rent Rebate program offered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, several local school districts also offer rebate programs through the district. These rebates can also be completed by my staff when you visit to file the state rebate forms. The qualifications are very similar in most cases but do vary slightly.
