McClinton is hosting the event to assist constituents with completing their 2016 Property Tax/Rent Rebate applications.

The Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program is administered by the state Department of Revenue and funded by proceeds from the Pennsylvania Lottery. Individuals who are 65 or older, at least 50 and widowed, or are permanently disabled and 18 or older are eligible to receive a rebate if their income falls below a certain threshold. The annual household income for property owners must be $35,000 or less, and the annual household income for renters must be $15,000 or less. The maximum standard rebate is $650, but some homeowners can qualify for a $975 rebate.

Constituents will need to bring proof of identification, income and paid taxes for 2016. Information on the Yeadon Borough Homestead Exemption program will also be offered.

This event is open to the community.
