BEDFORD – Local, state and federal tax forms for the 2020 tax year, as well as Property Tax/Rent Rebate forms are now available at the district offices of Rep. Jesse Topper (R-Bedford/Franklin/Fulton) located in Bedford, McConnellsburg and Mercersburg. 

“Providing access to tax forms is a core service my office offers residents,” Topper said. “Equally important is assisting residents with filling out the Property Tax/Rent Rebate forms. I want to remind residents that there is no need to pay for help filling out the forms, my office staff can do it for free.”

State instruction booklets and all other state forms are available at all his district offices. If residents need a form or other information that is not displayed, please don’t hesitate to ask one of the staff members to print it directly from the state revenue website. To access the forms electronically, simply go online to the state Department of Revenue site at reveue.pa.gov. Topper’s offices also have the needed local and federal tax forms on hand. 

In addition, Topper’s offices also have Property Tax/Rent Rebate forms available for qualifying residents. The program benefits eligible Pennsylvania residents age 65 and older; widows and widowers age 50 and older; and people with disabilities age 18 and older. The income limit is $35,000 a year for homeowners and $15,000 annually for renters, and half of Social Security income is excluded. The maximum standard rebate is $650, but supplemental rebates for certain qualifying homeowners can boost rebates to $975.

Residents who need assistance filling out the Property Tax/Rent Rebate forms must make an appointment ahead of time. For more information, or to set up an appointment, contact Topper’s Bedford office at 814-623-9097 or the McConnellsburg office at 717-485-4430.
