BEDFORD – Rep. Jesse Topper (R-Bedford/Franklin/Fulton) announced that forms for the state’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate program for 2018 rebates are now available at his offices.
Eligible participants of the state’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate program can receive a rebate of up to $650 based on their rent or property taxes paid in 2018. 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.
To be eligible, homeowners must earn less than $35,000 a year and renters less than $15,000 with half of Social Security income excluded.
Certain supplemental rebates can boost homeowner rebates up to $975. The supplemental rebates are automatically calculated by the Department of Revenue for qualifying homeowners. The deadline to apply is June 30.
“I want reminds residents that they do not need to pay a private entity for assistance in filing the forms,” Topper said. “Copies of the forms, as well as assistance with filing them, are available at my offices at no cost. Applicants should be prepared to provide all the necessary income, property tax or rental information required to process claims quickly and accurately.”
The application is also available for download at RepTopper.com by clicking on “Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program.”
For additional information or assistance, contact Topper’s Bedford office at (814) 623-9097, or his McConnellsburg office at (717) 485-4430.
