Spread the Word about the Pennsylvania Property Tax / Rent Rebate

December 15, 2007

To help with the rising cost of living, you are reminded that the Pennsylvania Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program is still accepting applications.

There are new guidelines which will permit individuals that qualify to receive a rebate between $250 and $650 from property taxes or rent paid last year. Funding for this rebate program is made possible from the Pennsylvania State Lottery Fund.

Applicants should note that no lien or judgment is placed against their property, nor will this rebate ever have to be repaid. To qualify, you must be a senior citizen 65 years of age or older, a widow or widower 50 years of age or older, or a disabled person 18 years or
older. Homeowners that have annual incomes of $35,000 or less and renters with annual incomes of $15,000 or less could qualify. The good news is that only half of your annual Social Security or SSI income is counted toward the income guideline. This application must be filed by December 31, 2007. For more information or an application call "PASS", Monday through Friday between 9 A.M. and 4 P.M. at (215) 923-1900. All inquiries are confidential and services are provided free of charge.
