PA Treasurer Releases Tax and Rent Rebates to Seniors With Disabilities

Posted: Updated:
Relief is on the way to more than 455,000 Pennsylvania seniors, widows, widowers and people with disabilities.  According to State Treasurer Rob McCord, they will receive a share of $223 million in property tax and rent relief.

The Pennsylvania Treasury issued 455,789 payments from the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program today, July 1. Eligible citizens may continue to apply through December 31 for rebates on property taxes or rent paid in 2013. Those applications will be reviewed and paid as they are received.

“These rebates are critically important to many Pennsylvanians working hard to make ends meet and stay in their homes,” Treasurer McCord said.  The treasurer also reassured applicants that they payments were issued on schedule despite a delay in the Governor Tom Corbett signing a new Fiscal Year 2014-15 state budget into law.

To view the status of a pending rebate application, visit and click on the first image in the scrolling banner near the top of the page, or call 1-888-PA TAXES.   For eligible residents who have not yet applied, a rebate application form (PA-1000) is available at, by calling 1-888-222-9190, or by visiting Department of Revenue district offices, local Area Agencies on Aging, senior centers and state legislators’ offices.
