Rep. Snyder: Staffers to assist residents in filing for Property Tax/Rent Rebate

HARRISBURG, Feb. 7 – State Rep. Pam Snyder, D-Greene/Fayette/Washington, today said her staff will be on hand throughout the district to help eligible residents file for the state’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program.

“We want to ensure we can help people promptly file their forms, as claimants must reapply for rebates each year, since the rebates are based on annual income and property taxes or rent paid annually,” Snyder said. “If you are a new applicant, my office staff will be happy to assist you.”

The deadline to apply is June 30, but it is routinely extended until the end of the year. However, filing early means you’ll get your rebate sooner.

A representative from Snyder’s office will be present to help residents file on the following dates and locations:

  • Thursday, Feb. 7 – 10 a.m.-noon at Brownsville Senior Housing, Brownsville;
    1-3 p.m. at Parkview Knoll, Carmichaels.
