I found this article while reading the Suburban Realtor Alliance News . This information was very informative especially for seniors ,people with disabilities ,widows and widowers with lower incomes . I was not aware of the exisitence of the this program . I have a friend who asked me to help his friend with a disability . When talking to my mortgage banker I discovered there were grants available for him . I had no idea and neither did my friend who is going to travel here from the West Coast to help him relocate . There are many programs that are available that many do not know they may qualify for from the State of Pennsylvania . The Tax/Rent Rebate Program may be one .
Pa. Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program deadline extended
Pennsylvania’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program deadline has been extended to Dec. 31. The rebate program benefits eligible Pennsylvanians ages 65 and older; widows and widowers ages 50 and older; and people with disabilities ages 18 and older. The income limit is $35,000 a year for homeowners and $15,000 annually for renters, with half their Social Security income excluded from consideration. The maximum standard rebate is $650, but supplemental rebates for certain qualifying homeowners can boost rebates to $975. According to Gov. Tom Wolf’s office, the program is evaluated each year as the June 30 application deadline approaches to determine if funds for 2016 tax and rent rebates are available to extend the deadline. Applicants may obtain Property Tax/Rent Rebate claim forms (PA-1000) and related information at the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue website or by calling 888-222-9190.
