Older adults and Pennsylvanians with disabilities have until Dec. 31 to apply for the state’s 2022 Property Tax/Rent Rebate program. Remember, assistance through State Representative Joe Hogan’s Lower Southampton or Penndel offices is always free. You need not pay a private firm for assistance. When preparing to come in to apply, please bring with you:
1099 Social Security statements
If an owner, your paid tax receipts (contact your local tax collector)
If a renter, a completed rent certificate.
Your driver’s license
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.
