Property Tax/Rent Rebate deadline Dec. 31


The Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program provides income-qualifying senior citizens and other Pennsylvania residents with rebates of as much as $650 based on property taxes or rent paid the previous year. The program is open to residents 65 or older, widows and widowers 50 or older, and people 18 or older who have a disability. The income limit to qualify is $35,000 for homeowners and $15,000 for renters; only half of Social Security, Supplemental Security or federal Railroad Retirement Tier 1 benefits needs to be counted as income when applying.

Some homeowners with a high property tax-to-income ratio

may see their maximum rebate boosted to $975.


Applications are available online at, or at local area agencies on aging and senior centers.


Contact Representative John Hornaman's office with any questions or concerns. Please call (814) 835-2880 for their holiday hours.


If you know someone who may qualify for the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program, please pass along this information to them.
