PA Extends Deadline to Apply for Property Tax/Rent Rebates to Dec. 31, 2024

The deadline for older adults and Pennsylvanians with disabilities to apply for rebates on rent and property taxes paid in 2023 has been extended from June 30 to December 31, 2024.

Eligible applicants of the Property Tax/Rent Rebate (PTRR) program are encouraged to file their rebate applications online by visiting mypath.pa.gov. This online filing option makes it simple to submit the PTRR application and the supporting documentation needed to verify each applicant’s eligibility.   

“So far this year, our agency has already received approximately 445,000 rebate applications. That’s roughly 100,000 more applications than we had received at this time last year — and the applicant pool thus far includes nearly 80,000 first-time filers who will be benefitting from the rebate program for the very first time,” said Secretary of Revenue Pat Browne. “With today’s announcement, we want eligible applicants in all of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties to know that they have more time to file their rebate applications. In addition to Department of Revenue district offices, there are a number of places across the Commonwealth where people can find in-person filing assistance.”

DOR has already processed and approved 92% of PTRR applications for payment. The remaining claims yet to be approved either have errors or may require more information – if you receive outreach from DOR, Pennsylvanians are encouraged to respond as soon as possible in order to get their application approved so they can receive their rebate in a timely manner.

The PTRR program benefits eligible Pennsylvanians age 65 and older; widows and widowers age 50 and older; and people with disabilities age 18 and older. The table below shows how much homeowners and renters who fit this criteria are eligible for, depending on their income:

 

INCOMEMAX STANDARD REBATE
$0 – $8000$1,000
$8,001 – $15,000$770
$15,001 – $18,000$460
$18,001 – $45,000$380
