Property Tax Rebate Increasing for PA Seniors

September 15th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Senior Pennsylvanians will soon see financial relief with their property taxes and rent. Governor Josh Shapiro recently signed House Bill 1100 into law, expanding the state's existing property tax and rent rebate program. AARP State Director Bill Johnston-Walsh says expansion of the program will significantly boost property tax rebates for older adults, lightening the financial load for homeowners and renters. The yearly maximum standard will increase from $650 to $1000 for individuals. The Keystone State is home to almost three-point-five million people age 60 and older.
