BRADFORD – Applications for the 2022 Property Tax/Rent Rebate program are now available, and Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) is reminding area residents that free assistance is available through his local offices as well as an ongoing series of Property Tax/Rent Rebate clinics in several communities. 

“We’ve had a great turnout during this first week of clinics, and people are really appreciative of the assistance with getting these much-needed rebates,” Causer said. 

Next week’s schedule is as follows: 

Tuesday, Feb. 21
Mt. Jewett Senior Center, 8 E. Main St., Mt. Jewett – 12:30-2:30 p.m.

Wednesday, Feb. 22
Oswayo Valley Senior Center, 128 Lyons St., Shinglehouse – 9 a.m. to noon.

The rebate program benefits eligible Pennsylvanians age 65 and older; widows and widowers age 50 and older; and people with disabilities age 18 and older. The income limit is $35,000 a year for homeowners and $15,000 annually for renters, and half of Social Security income is excluded.

The maximum standard rebate is $650, but supplemental rebates for certain qualifying homeowners can boost rebates to $975. The Revenue Department automatically calculates supplemental rebates for qualifying homeowners.

The deadline to apply for a rebate is June 30. Rebates will be distributed beginning July 1, as required by law. Additional information, as well as claim forms and a link to apply online, are available at revenue.pa.gov
