Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program Applications Now Available In Roae’s District Offices, on His Website
2/14/2012
HARRISBURG – Residents who would like to apply for the state’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate program for 2011 can now obtain applications through Rep. Brad Roae’s (R-Crawford) district offices or by visiting his website.

“This rebate program makes it easier for many senior citizens to make ends meet,” Roae said. “For many older Pennsylvanians, it is a lifeline that enables them to remain in the homes where they raised their families.”

Property Tax/Rent Rebate claim forms are available by contacting Roae’s Titusville office at 814-827-6054, his Meadville office at 814-336-1136, or by visiting his website at www.RepRoae.com.

Eligible participants can receive a rebate of up to $650 based on their rent or property taxes paid in 2011. The program benefits eligible Pennsylvanians who are 65 years or older, widows and widowers 50 years or older, and those 18 years or older with disabilities.

Eligibility income limits for homeowners are set at the following levels, excluding 50 percent of Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, and Railroad Retirement Tier 1 benefits: 

        • $0 to $8,000, maximum $650 rebate (homeowners and renters). 
        • $8,001 to $15,000, maximum $500 rebate (homeowners and renters). 
        • $15,001 to $18,000, maximum $300 rebate (homeowners only). 
        • $18,001 to $35,000, maximum $250 rebate (homeowners only).

The Property Tax/Rent Rebate program is one of many initiatives supported by the Pennsylvania Lottery, which dedicates its proceeds to support programs for older Pennsylvanians. Since the program began in 1971, $4.8 billion has been paid to qualified applicants.

“This program can provide senior citizens with up to $650 more in their pockets,” Roae said. “During these difficult economic times, that can make a great difference in their family budget.”

Residents are reminded to provide all the necessary income, property tax or rental information required to process claims quickly and accurately. Applications are due by June 30.
