Brewster: Property Tax, Rent Rebate Deadline Extended for Senior and Disabled Residents

Sen. Jim Brewster said the property tax and rent rebate program has extended its application deadline to December 31, 2018.

Property TaxThe program assists seniors and individuals with disabilities reduce their property tax and rent bills.  Depending on income, seniors may be eligible for rebates of up to $650.

“The extension will give seniors and individuals who may be eligible to receive assistance through the property tax and rent rebate program more time to apply for help,” Brewster said. “Extending the deadline to the end of the year gives residents the opportunity to gather information and complete applications.”

The original deadline for the program was June 30.

Brewster reminds residents who qualify for the program that it is free to apply and his district office is equipped to assist those looking to fill out an application.

“I encourage any individual who thinks they may be eligible for property tax and rent rebates to visit with my staff at any of my district offices or during satellite office hours,” Brewster said.  “My staff is very experienced at completing the applications and will be able to answer any question about the program.”

Eligible residents for the program are Pennsylvanians age 65 and older, widows and widowers age 50 and older, and people with disabilities age 18 and older.

Nearly 600,000 seniors and disabled individuals received assistance through the program in 2017.

Since the Property Tax and Rent Rebate Program’s inception through the Department of Revenue in 1971, more than $6.7 billion in property tax and rent relief has been granted to older and disabled adults in Pennsylvania.
