AARP Pennsylvania wants to be sure members know that the deadline to apply for the state’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate program has been extended to Dec. 31.
Residents 65 and older, widows and widowers 50 and older, and people with disabilities 18 and older may be eligible. The annual income limits are $35,000 for homeowners and $15,000 for renters, not counting half of the applicant’s Social Security income.
Last year, nearly 600,000 Pennsylvanians received rebates of as much as $975 for homeowners and up to $650 for renters.
