Tax/Rent Rebate Deadline Is Dec. 31

The deadline to apply for the 2011 Property Tax/Rent Rebate program is Dec. 31, says State Rep. Jim Cox (R-129). If you’ve already applied and/or received your rebate check for 2011, please note that applications for the 2012 program will not be accepted until next year, probably in mid-February. 

Eligible participants can receive a rebate of up to $650 based on their rent or property taxes paid in 2011. 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 permanent 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).

Residents are reminded to provide all the necessary income, property tax or rental information required to process claims quickly and accurately. 

One can obtain an application by visiting this page on Cox's website.
