WEISSPORT – Rep. Doyle Heffley (R-Carbon) is reminding Pennsylvania senior citizens and adults with disabilities that the first batch of payments through the Property Tax and Rent Rebate (PTRR) Program will be distributed starting today.

“I am happy to see our senior citizens and adults with disabilities receive these rebates,” said Heffley. “This program and its expansion are necessary, and I am proud to have voted for the expansion of this rebate program because it significantly helps the needs of our most vulnerable citizens.”

Based on a new law that Heffley supported and voted for, the rebate expanded to increase the maximum rebate amount and income limit. Now, an additional 175,000 Pennsylvanians are eligible.

Applicants who submitted their bank account information on their application forms will receive their rebates through direct deposit. Applicants who requested a paper check to be mailed to them should expect to receive their payment in the mail.

The Department of Revenue has already processed and approved 93% 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 the department.

Pennsylvanians are encouraged to respond as soon as possible to get their application approved so they can receive their rebate in a timely manner. In addition, those who have already applied can track the status of their rebates by clicking on “Where’s My Rebate” at mypath.pa.gov.

The Property Tax and Rent Rebate Program is open to eligible seniors 65 and older, widows and widowers 50 and older, and adults with disabilities 18 and older with a household income not exceeding $45,000 (half of Social Security income is excluded).

If you think you may be eligible but have not applied already, the application deadline was recently extended to Dec. 31.

The application is free. For those interested in applying for the Property Tax and Rent Rebate Program and need assistance, please call Heffley’s district office at 610-377-6363.
