The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue is now offering in-person assistance to those who need help with property taxes and rent rebates. This year’s program expansion makes the advice especially useful for new participants.
Applications for Property Tax and Rent Rebate
Department of Revenue representatives will be providing in-person assistance to filers at two nearby community centers in February. People may receive assistance in filing their Pennsylvania personal income tax returns (PA-40s) and property tax/rent rebate applications as tax season approaches.
Following the expansion, around 175,000 people are now eligible for property tax/rent rebates. Pat Browne, the secretary of revenue, emphasized the value of receiving in-person assistance from qualified experts.
Residents in Mahanoy City may be able to seek assistance at the Senior Community Center during specific hours in February, while residents of Shamokin may be able to get assistance at the Coal Region Adult Community Center.
Guidelines and Application Assistance for the PTRR Program and PA-40 Submissions
Examine the requirements for qualifying and utilize the help to complete the PA-1000 application for the Property Tax and Rent Rebate Program. Qualified Pennsylvanians 65 years of age or older, widows and widowers 50 years of age or older, and handicapped 18-year-olds may begin filing claims for the latest PTRR program expansion on January 16, 2024.
Bring picture IDs, Social Security cards for both you and your dependents, and your tax records and income statements if you require assistance filing the Pennsylvania personal income tax return (PA-40). By midnight on Monday, April 15, 2023, all taxpayers with gross taxable income above $33 must file a Pennsylvania personal income tax return.
