Argall Reminds Constituents of Upcoming Property Tax/Rent Rebate Deadline

HARRISBURG – State Senator David G. Argall (R-29) reminds senior citizens and other residents who are eligible for the state’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program that the deadline for submitting an application for this year’s program is December 31, 2009. Those who have already completed an application do not need to apply again.

The Pennsylvania Property Tax / Rent Rebate program provides property tax relief or rent assistance for eligible Pennsylvanians. Eligible residents are those 65 or older, widows and widowers 50 or older, and those 18 or older who are disabled. Annual household income may not exceed $35,000, although only half of any Social Security income and railroad retirement benefits count towards that calculation.

Individuals who qualified for a rebate last year should have received a new application in the mail this year. Senator Argall encouraged those who have not already applied to stop in one of his district offices as soon as possible to have the application completed. Constituents should bring a copy of their paid municipal, county and school taxes as well as proof of income.

Senator Argall’s district offices are located at:
