    Programs that provide information and guidance for state residents who have been renting their homes or apartments as of a specified date during the tax year and who want to apply for the renters' tax credit program. The program is based on the recognition that renters indirectly pay property taxes as part of their rent and thus should have some protection, as do homeowners. The renter's tax credit is generally not a payment that individuals receive, but a deduction that renters can make on their state income tax forms though in some jurisdictions renters receive a check from the tax authority. Renters who owe no taxes may get no benefits depending on state tax laws. Income restrictions may apply.

    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
