Boscola to Assist with Property Tax/Rent Rebate Applications

Tax formSenator Boscola's office will be at the Easton Public Library on Thursday, April 2 from 12:30pm to 2:30pm. We will be available to assist constituents with filling out and filing their Property Tax and Rent Rebate applications for the year 2014. The library is located at 515 Church Street in Easton.

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.

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.

Homeowners receive:
Income Maximum Rebate
$0 to $8,000 $650
$8,001 to $15,000 $500
$15,001 to $18,000 $300
