LOCK HAVEN – Rep. Stephanie Borowicz (R- Centre/Clinton) is reminding District 76 residents that they should never have to pay a private entity for assistance in filing their Property Tax/Rent Rebate applications.

Copies of the forms and assistance for the 2018 Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program are available at no cost through her district offices. A link to additional information about the program, as well as access to downloadable forms, is also available at her website at RepStephanie.com.

The Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program is designed to help eligible Pennsylvanians age 65 and older; widows and widowers age 50 and older; and people with disabilities age 18 and older to receive up to a $650 rebate from the property taxes or rent they paid last year.

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. The supplemental rebates are automatically calculated by the Department of Revenue for qualifying homeowners.

Applicants should be prepared to provide all the necessary income, property tax or rental information required to process claims quickly and accurately. Applications are due by June 30.

“My staff and I are ready to meet and exceed the expectations of District 76 residents with a number of state-related services, including vehicle registration applications or renewals, PennDOT paperwork, PACE and PACENET prescription drug programs for seniors, securing birth certificates and so many others,” said Borowicz. “I invite everyone to stop by or give us a call to discuss any concerns you may have regarding state government.”
