Free Property Tax/Rent Rebate Filing Assistance Available at Community Centers Across PA

Representatives from the Department of Revenue (DOR) will visit senior and community centers across the Commonwealth over the next several weeks to help Pennsylvanians who need help filing their Property Tax/Rent Rebate (PTRR) program applications.

This additional in-person assistance is being offered in part to help Pennsylvanians who are newly eligible for the PTRR program. DOR representatives stationed at these centers will also be able to help Pennsylvanians file their Pennsylvania personal income tax returns (PA-40s) now that tax season is underway.

“With the historic expansion of the PTRR program, there are nearly 175,000 people who are newly eligible for a rebate. We know from our experience that many of our fellow Pennsylvanians benefit from having a face-to-face conversation with one of our experienced representatives who can help guide them through the filing process,” Revenue Secretary Pat Browne said. “We have worked this year to increase the number of locations and in-person opportunities for seniors to receive the help they need, whether that is for a rebate claim or assistance with a state tax return.”

Department of Revenue staff will be available at the locations listed below by county throughout February, and additional dates and times are scheduled for the coming months. Inclement weather may impact this schedule, and it could be subject to change.

A complete up-to-date listing by county is available online with the latest information. Customers are encouraged to call their preferred location ahead of time to verify availability and make an appointment.

In addition, assistance is available at the Department of Revenue’s district offices from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Customers are encouraged to email or call ahead to schedule an appointment.

Applicants who need assistance with the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program application (PA-1000) should check the eligibility guidelines on the PTRR Program. The new claim season for the recent expansion of the PTRR program opened on January 16, 2024. 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.

Taxpayers who need assistance with the Pennsylvania personal income tax return (PA-40) should bring their tax information/income statements, a photo identification card (driver’s license, etc.), and Social Security cards for themselves and their dependents. As a reminder, all taxpayers who received more than $33 in total gross taxable income in calendar year 2023 must file a Pennsylvania personal income tax return by midnight, Monday, April 15, 2024.
