Property Tax and Rent Rebate Applications Now Available
By State Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver (R-Northumberland/Snyder)
Application forms for the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program are now available for eligible Pennsylvanians to begin claiming rebates on property taxes or rent paid in 2018. The deadline to apply for a rebate is June 30, 2019.
Applicants may obtain Property Tax/Rent Rebate claim forms (PA-1000) and related information on the Department of Revenue’s website or by calling 1-888-222-9190. It is free to apply for a rebate, and free filing help is available at hundreds of locations across the commonwealth, including at Department of Revenue district offices, local Area Agencies on Aging, and senior community centers. Forms are also available at my district offices where my staff is available to assist you (106 Arch St, Sunbury, Monday through Friday 8:30am-4:30pm and 2 Filbert St, Milton, Monday through Friday 8:30-11:30am).
Rebates will be distributed beginning July 1, as required by law.
The easiest way to check the status of your rebate claim is to visit the dedicated website that the Department of Revenue maintains — “Where’s My PA Property Tax/Rent Rebate?” You will need your social security number, claim year and date of birth to check the status of your claim.
