Property/Rent Tax Rebate Program Available for Older and Disabled Pennsylvanians | Pennsylvania News
HARRISBURG, Pa. — Elderly and disabled Pennsylvanians are encouraged to apply for refunds on property taxes or rent paid in 2021.
The Department of Revenue made the recommendation on Thursday, saying help is available through the property tax/rent rebate program.
Eligible applicants are encouraged to visit mypath.pa.gov to submit their application electronically.
“Last year, we saw thousands of eligible residents take advantage of the easy-to-use myPATH deposit option to submit their refund claims,” said Revenue Secretary Dan Hassell. “Online filing saves you a trip to the letterbox and the cost of sending a paper application. If you know people who might be eligible, please encourage them to visit mypath.pa.gov to complete an application. We want to do everything we can to make sure everyone who is eligible receives this lifesaving help.”
How to register
After verifying the eligibility requirements, you can submit your reimbursement request online by visiting mypath.pa.gov.
Applicants will be asked to provide specific information about their income and rent/property taxes.
The Department of Revenue says applicants must reapply for a refund each year because refunds are based on annual income and property taxes or rent paid each year.
Spouses, personal representatives, or estates can file claims on behalf of claimants who have lived at least one day in 2021 and meet all other eligibility criteria.
Applicants who still wish to file a paper application form can obtain property/rent tax rebate application forms and related information on the Ministry of Revenue website or by calling 1-888-222-9190.
The discounts will be distributed from July 1st.
