HANOVER – Rep. Kate Klunk (R-York) announced that forms for the state’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate program for 2018 rebates are now available at her office.

Eligible participants of the state’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate program can receive a rebate of up to $650 based on their rent or property taxes paid in 2018. The program benefits eligible Pennsylvanians who are 65 years or older, widows and widowers 50 years or older, and those 18 years or older with permanent disabilities.

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,” Klunk said. “The supplemental rebates are automatically calculated by the Department of Revenue for qualifying homeowners. The deadline to apply is June 30.”

Klunk reminds residents that they shouldn’t pay a private entity for assistance filing the forms. Copies of the forms, as well as assistance with filing them, are available at her 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.

The application is also available for download at RepKlunk.com by clicking on “Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program.”

For additional information or assistance, contact Klunk’s office at (717) 630-8942.
