The Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program

The state Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program is designed to help eligible Pennsylvanians age 65 and older; widows and widowers age 50 and older; and people with disabilities age 18 and older to receive up to a $650 rebate from the property taxes or rent they paid last year.

To be eligible, homeowners must earn less than $35,000 a year and renters less than $15,000 with half of Social Security income excluded.

Certain supplemental rebates can boost homeowner rebates up to $975. The supplemental rebates are automatically calculated by the Department of Revenue for qualifying homeowners.

Residents should not pay a private entity for assistance in filing the forms. Copies of the forms, as well as assistance with filing them, are available at our office at no cost.

Applicants should be prepared to provide all the necessary income, property tax or rental information required to process claims quickly and accurately. Property owners should bring 2019 property tax receipts. Renters should bring a rent certificate completed by their landlord. Applications are due by June 30.

Help Also is Available at Our District Office

Applicants who cannot attend the mobile clinics are welcome to stop by our district office in the Meadville Downtown Mall. Our office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Meadville Downtown Mall is located at 900 Water St. in Meadville.
