The rebate program benefits eligible Pennsylvanians age 65 and older; widows and widowers age 50 and older; and people with disabilities age 18 and older. The income limit is $35,000 a year for homeowners and $15,000 annually for renters, and half of Social Security income is excluded.
The maximum standard rebate is $650, but supplemental rebates for qualifying homeowners can boost rebates to $975.
Pennsylvania is providing $782.5 million in property tax relief this year, including expanded rebates from the state’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program and general property tax relief for all homeowners distributed through school districts last summer.
Last year, more than 604,000 seniors received $284.1 million in rebates. So far this year, more than 617,000 rebate applications have been received, and as of Dec. 13, rebates totaling $278.7 million have been sent to more than 588,000 homeowners and renters.
The Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program is one of five programs supported by the Pennsylvania Lottery. Since the program’s 1971 inception, older adults and adults with disabilities have received $5.4 billion in of property tax and rent rebates. The expanded portion of the rebate program is being paid for with revenue from slots gaming.
