Senior citizens and disabled Americans in the state of Pennsylvania have the opportunity to apply for up to $975 in stimulus tax rebates.
The tax rebates are for rent and property taxes in the state.
This is part of the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program.
Qualifying residents have until June 30, 2022 to apply normally.
The deadline has now been extended through Dec. 31, 2022.
Maximum standard rebates are worth $650, but supplemental rebates for some homeowners can make the rebate worth up to $975.
Mortgage stimulus: Homeowners in each state may be eligible
Those who qualify have their supplemental rebates automatically calculated by the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue.
In order to extend the deadline, an evaluation needed to be done before June 30 to see that the funding is available.
This year there is funding.
Any applications postmarked by Dec. 31 will be accepted and reviewed.
Eligibility for the stimulus tax rebates
You must meet specific qualifications to see the tax rebates.
First, you must be a Pennsylvania resident.
Next you must be 65 and older or a widow or widower 50 and older.
The other qualification if you aren’t either of those is to be a person with a disability over the age of 18.
Homeowners cannot exceed the income limit of $35,000 annually.
Renters cannot exceed an annual income of $15,000.
Your total income will not count half of your Social Security income.
Applying for the tax rebates
To be considered, you need to submit your application with the Department of Revenue.
While applying is free, you need to do it each year to see the payments.
This is so the Department of Revenue can look at your property taxes, rent, and income each year.
Spouses and representatives can apply on behalf of someone who was alive for at least one day in 2021 and meets the criteria.
Money will start to go out on July 1, 2022.
