    Programs that provide information and guidance for individuals who meet income, age and/or disability requirements and may qualify for a special property tax rebate or tax credit through programs offered by local or state government. The mechanics of the program differ among jurisdictions. In some areas, applications for the property tax rebates are filed with state income tax returns and the rebate may take the form of a tax credit or a rebate check. In other areas, applications are filed with the local property tax assessment agency which issues a rebate check.

    Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Department of Revenue - Property Tax/Rent Rebate ProgramThe Pennsylvania Department of Revenue Property Tax/Rent 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. The Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program is one of five programs supported by the Pennsylvania Lottery. Since the program’s 1971 inception, older and disabled adults have received more than $5.6 billion in property tax and rent relief. The rebate program also receives funding from slots gaming. In addition, the law gives even more tax relief to the seniors in most need: * Seniors who live in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh or Scranton, where local wage/income tax rates are very high, will not benefit from a local tax shift to lower taxes on top of the reduction offered by the state funded property tax relief. To ensure that seniors in these communities receive significant property tax relief, each senior household with income under $30,000 has its property tax rebate increase by an additional 50 percent. * In addition, property tax rebates are increased by an additional 50 percent for senior households in the rest of state, so long as those households have incomes under $30,000 and pay more than 15 percent of income in property taxes.DauphinCommonwealth of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Department of RevenuePennsylvania Department of Revenue
