HARRISBURG – Rep. Carl Walker Metzgar (R-Bedford/Somerset) said forms for Pennsylvania’s 2016 Property Tax/Rent Rebate program are now available.

“Applications and assistance are available at my office. Please stop by and we will be happy to help,” said Metzgar. “It costs nothing to apply, and it is a great program.”

Eligible participants can receive a rebate of up to $650 based on their rent or property taxes paid in 2016. The program benefits eligible Pennsylvanians who are 65 years or older, widows and widowers 50 years or older, and those 18 years or older with disabilities. The income limit is $35,000 a year for homeowners and $15,000 annually for renters, and half of Social Security income is excluded.

Applications are due by June 30.
