Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program Applications Now Available

(via Rosemary Brown)

Forms for the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program are now available for eligible Pennsylvanians to begin claiming rebates on property taxes or rent paid in 2019. Remember – you do not need to pay anyone for assistance to apply for the rebate. Help is available from my offices at no charge. Call to schedule an appointment.

The rebate program benefits eligible Pennsylvanians age 65 and older; widows and widowers age 50 and older; and people with disabilities age 18 and older. The income limit is $35,000 a year for homeowners and $15,000 annually for renters, and half of Social Security income is excluded.

The maximum standard rebate is $650, but supplemental rebates for certain qualifying homeowners can boost rebates to $975. The Revenue Department automatically calculates supplemental rebates for qualifying homeowners.

Additional information, as well as claim forms, are available here.

The deadline to apply for a rebate is June 30, 2020. Rebates will be distributed beginning July 1, as required by law.
