$1000 Property Tax & Rent Rebate Coming in Pennsylvania; Check Eligibility and Process

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania: Hundreds of thousands of senior citizens and disabled people can now qualify for rebates of up to $1,000 in Pennsylvania.

Governor Josh Shapiro announced Tuesday that Pennsylvania’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate program is officially available. The highest regular rebate is now $1,000, up from $650 when Shapiro signed the bipartisan legislation into law last year.

For the first time since 2006, the income cap has been raised to $45,000, allowing approximately 175,000 more Pennsylvanians to benefit from the program. The income limitations will now be adjusted to the cost of living, ensuring that citizens are not priced out of the program, which, according to the Shapiro administration, used to provide 600,000 rebates every year but has only distributed approximately 430,000 in recent years due to the static income limits.

Shapiro said seniors have told him that the state needs to do more to keep up with rising prices, and his administration has vowed to assist.
