Deadline to Apply for Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program Nearing, Says Hickernell
11/18/2010

Rep. Dave Hickernell reminds residents that the deadline to apply for the state’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate program for 2009 is Dec. 31, 2010. 

Eligible participants can receive a rebate of up to $650 based on their rent or property taxes paid in 2009. 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)

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, more than $4 billion has been paid to qualified applicants.

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

To check the status of an existing rebate application or obtain a Property Tax/Rent Rebate form, contact Hickernell’s office at (717) 367-5525 or (717) 684-5525, or visit his website at RepHickernell.com
