Expanded Eligibility and Increased Property Tax Rebate

Recent changes in state legislation have expanded the eligibility criteria for the Property Tax Rebate Program, making more individuals eligible for assistance. Income eligibility limits have been raised to $45,000 for both homeowners and renters, with 50% of Social Security income excluded from calculations. Additionally, the maximum rebate amount has been raised from $650 to $1,000.

Rep. Causer emphasizes the importance of the Property Tax Rebate Program in providing much-needed support to seniors and individuals with disabilities. The increased rebate amounts and expanded eligibility criteria aim to ensure that more residents can benefit from the program’s assistance.

If a resident wants to claim for the refund, they must collect the required paperwork, which includes evidence of their 2023 property tax payments and proof of income. A completed PA Rent Certificate or statement from the HUD office is also required of the renters.
