Check To See If You Are Eligible For This Rebate

Deadline Nearing For Tax/Rent Rebates

taxfreliefWith the Dec. 31 deadline nearing, more than 200 eligible older homeowners and renters in Potter County have not applied for refunds from the state under the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program. Rebates are available for rent and taxes paid in 2007. The Property Tax/Rent Rebate program benefits eligible Pennsylvanians age 65 and older; widows and widowers age 50 and older; and people with disabilities who are age 18 and older.

Only half of Social Security income is applied to the eligibility formula. Household income limits and maximum rebate amounts for homeowners are: up to $8,000, $650 rebate; $8,001 to $15,000, $500 rebate; $15,001 to $18,000, $300 rebate; $18,001 to $35,000, $250 rebate.

Renters with incomes up to $8,000 receive a $650 rebate; those with incomes between $8,001 and $15,000 receive $500.

Further information is available by calling a toll-free phone line, 1-888-222-9190.
