DeLuca: Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program extended

HARRISBURG, June 11 – It recently was announced that the deadline to apply for the state Department of Revenue’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program has been extended to Dec. 31.

This program is targeted to provide property tax and rent relief to older and disabled adults, so I encourage you to apply if you qualify.

The maximum standard rebate is $650.

  • Pennsylvanians 65 or older; widows and widowers 50 and older, and people with disabilities 18 or older.
  • Residents who have an income limit of $35,000 a year for homeowners and $15,000 annually for renters; half of Social Security income is excluded.
  • Spouses, personal representatives or estates may also file rebate claims on behalf of claimants who lived at least one day in 2017 and meet all other criteria.
