Pennsylvania residents expect direct payments from the property tax/rent rebate payment.
Are you eligible?
Eligible residents will receive direct payouts ranging from $250 to $975 property tax rebate program on July 1. Every year, the property tax rebate program provides direct payments to eligible residents in Pennsylvania ages 65 and older, widowers aged 50 and older, and people with disabilities aged 18 and older. Qualifying homeowners can receive up to $975 payment, but the maximum payment to be received is $650. The program based the prices on the tax or rent that was paid by the residents last year. To obtain the payment, owners must have paid their taxes before filing, and tenants should maintain the landlord-tenant connection.
Furthermore, renters should guarantee that their landlords have expended property taxes somewhat of tax payments on their rental property. Residents are eligible for varying amounts that are based on earnings. Homeowners with zero to $8,000 will receive the maximum rebate of $650. Homeowners with an income of $8,001 to $15,000 will receive a $500 tax rebate. And homeowners who earn $8,001 to $35,000 will receive a $250 refund. This is also the same for renters.
To qualify for this program, you must be:
• 65 years or older as of December 31 of the year claimed.
• Those who are not 65 must have a spouse that lived with you who was 65 as of December 31 during the year claimed.
• Be a widow or widower during all or part of the year claimed and were 50 years or older as of December 31.
• Those permanently disabled and aged 18 years and older during all or part of the year claimed.
Even if you applied to Social Security but were ineligible, you can’t receive the tax rebate payments. The payments you will receive depend on your income and eligibility. Homeowners must have an income of $35,000 or less. Renters must have an income of $15,000 or less.
