4/26/2011

State Rep. Curt Sonney (R-Harborcreek) is reminding residents of the 4th Legislative District that assistance with completion of Property Tax/Rent Rebate forms is provided at no cost by members of his staff.

 

“There is no need for anyone eligible for the Property Tax/Rent Rebate program to have to pay a fee for help with filling out the necessary application forms,” Sonney said. “The staffs in both my Corry and Harborcreek district offices are more than willing to assist residents wishing to take advantage of this program.”

 

Eligible participants can receive a rebate of up to $650 based on their rent or property taxes paid in 2010. 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. 

 

Eligibility income limits for homeowners are set at the following levels, excluding 50 percent of Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, and Railroad Retirement Tier 1 benefits:

 

·         $0 to $8,000, maximum $650 rebate (Homeowners and renters)

·         $8,001 to $15,000, maximum $500 rebate (Homeowners and renters)

·         $15,001 to $18,000, maximum $300 rebate (Homeowners only)

·         $18,001 to $35,000, maximum $250 rebate (Homeowners only)

 

Residents are reminded to provide all the necessary income, property tax or rental information required to process claims quickly and accurately.  Applications are due by June 30.

 

Property Tax/Rent Rebate claim forms are available by contacting Sonney’s Corry office at (814) 664-9126 or his Harborcreek office at (814) 897-2080, or by visiting his web site at RepSonney.com.
