Applications Now Available for Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program, Says Day
2/20/2014
HARRISBURG – Rep. Gary Day (R-Lehigh/Berks) today announced that forms for the state’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate program for 2013 are now available.

Eligible participants can receive a rebate of up to $650 based on their rent or property taxes paid in 2013. 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.

Eligibility income limits for homeowners are set at the following levels, excluding 50 percent of Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, and Railroad Retirement Tier 1 benefits:

• $0 to $8,000, maximum $650 rebate (homeowners and renters).
• $8,001 to $15,000, maximum $500 rebate (homeowners and renters).
• $15,001 to $18,000, maximum $300 rebate (homeowners only).
• $18,001 to $35,000, maximum $250 rebate (homeowners only).

Day reminds residents that they need not pay a private entity for assistance in filing the forms.

Copies of the forms, as well as assistance with filing them, are available at Day’s office in New Tripoli at no cost. The office is located in the Northwest Centre, Suite 302, at 6299 Route 309. Residents can also download forms online at www.RepGaryDay.com.

Applicants should be prepared to provide all the necessary income, property tax or rental information required to process claims quickly and accurately. Applications are due by June 30.

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. Since the program began in 1971, $4.8 billion has been paid to qualified applicants.
