Time Running Out to File for Property Tax/Rent Rebate, Says Moul
12/3/2009
Rep. Dan Moul (R-Adams/Franklin) is reminding residents that the deadline to file for the state’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate program is Dec. 31, 2009.
 
Eligible participants can receive a rebate of up to $650 based on their rent or property taxes paid in 2008.  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 were expanded last year to the following levels, excluding 50 percent of Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, and Railroad Retirement Tier 1 benefits:
  • $0 and $8,000, up to $650 rebate (Homeowners and renters)
  • $8,001 to $15,000, up to $500 rebate (Homeowners and renters)
  • $15,001 to $18,000, up to $300 rebate (Homeowners only)
  • $18,001 to $35,000, up to $250 rebate (Homeowners only) 
Property Tax/Rent Rebate claim forms are available by contacting Moul’s office or by visiting his Web site at www.RepMoul.com. In addition to application materials for the rebate, individuals can also check the status of an existing rebate claim, by clicking on “Where’s My Property Tax Refund?”
