PA Property Tax/Rent Rebate Increases For Seniors

January 18th, 2024 by WCBC Radio

Hundreds of thousands of older adults and Pennsylvanians with disabilities are now eligible to apply for a rebate up to $1,000 through the Property Tax/Rent Rebate program. The maximum standard rebate is now $1,000, up from $650 thanks to bipartisan legislation Governor Josh Shapiro signed into law last year. The program's income limits have been increased to $45,000 and made equal for both homeowners and renters – the first time since 2006 the income limits have been raised. This change makes nearly 175,000 additional Pennsylvanians eligible for the program.
