Property tax/rent rebate payments on their way to eligible Pa. seniors

HARRISBURG, May 19 – State Rep. Ryan Bizzarro said that Gov. Tom Wolf today signed into law a bill that will expedite the distribution of property tax/rent rebate payments to seniors.

“Eligible residents who depend on these rebates will receive them earlier than anticipated and at time where there is so much uncertainty, I am happy to report this good news to those waiting for these payments,” Bizzarro said. “The General Assembly moved quickly to get this legislation to the governor and this is a great example of how bipartisanship can best benefit our state.”

Property tax and rent rebate payments will now be made immediately instead of waiting until July 1. It also directs the departments of Revenue and Treasury to process 2019 rebate payments for all homeowners and renters who received a 2018 rebate. For anyone who became eligible in the past year, those rebates would also be issued immediately upon receipt of their application instead of waiting until July.

Payments are being sent out to those who have already filed for Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program.

Bizzarro urges residents who have not yet applied to contact his office at 814-835-2880 for free assistance with the application process.
