Representatives from the Department of Revenue will visit senior and community centers over the next several weeks to help Pennsylvanians who need help filing their Pennsylvania personal income tax returns and Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program applications.
“We know from our experience that many of our customers benefit from having a face-to-face conversation with one of our experienced representatives who can help guide them through the filing process, whether that is for a PA tax return or a rebate claim,” Acting Revenue Secretary Pat Browne said. “We hope that Pennsylvanians in these communities will take advantage of the opportunity to receive free help from our staff in person.”
