Property Tax & Rent Rebates
This program provides rebates up to $975 to eligible Pennsylvanians age 65 and older; widows and widowers 50 and older; and people with disabilities 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. Additionally, income increases due solely to Social Security cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) no longer disqualify claimants from receiving rebates.
Spouses, personal representatives or estates may also claim rebates on behalf of deceased claimants who lived at least one day during a claim year.
