Residents of Pennsylvania have the opportunity to apply for the state’s property tax and rent rebate, a financial relief program that can provide eligible individuals with up to $1,000. 

The rebates are set to be distributed in the second half of the year, offering valuable support to qualifying homeowners or renters in the Keystone State.

To be eligible for the rebate, individuals must meet certain criteria. This includes being 65 years or older, at least 50 years old with a deceased spouse, or an adult with a disability. 

Additionally, applicants must have an annual income of $45,000 or less, with income requirements linked to the cost of living.

Governor Josh Shapiro, a Democrat from Pennsylvania, announced the opening of applications for the 2024 rebate and highlighted improvements made to the program through legislation passed in the previous year. 

The enhancements aim to broaden the impact of the Property Tax/Rent Rebate program, benefiting an additional 175,000 Pennsylvanians.
