Apply For Pennsylvania's Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program By Dec. 31

Tax

Earlier this year, AARP Pennsylvania successfully advocated for the use of American Rescue Plan Act dollars as a one-time bonus rebate to Pennsylvanians who qualify for the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program.

The measure was passed when Governor Wolf signed Act 54 of 2022 into law this past summer.    

On October 28th, the Governor issued a press release reminding Pennsylvanians who qualify for the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program to apply by December 31, 2022 to receive their rebate + the one-time bump. 

As noted in the release:

"[O]lder Pennsylvanians ​and Pennsylvanians with disabilities who qualify for a rebate on rent or property taxes paid in 2021 will be receiving more money than usual this year. On top of the annual rebate, recipients will also receive a one-time bonus rebate equal to 70 percent of their original rebate amount."

The governor and AARP Pennsylvania encourage qualifying Pennsylvanians to apply by Dec. 31, 2022 to receive their annual rebate plus a one-time bonus rebate.
