The rebate amount varies based on income levels, with individuals earning up to $8,000 eligible for $1,000, those making $8,001-$15,000 receiving $770, individuals with income between $15,001 and $18,000 getting $460, and anyone with income between $18,001 and $45,000 qualifying for a $380 rebate.

The expansion of the property tax/rent rebate program in Pennsylvania comes as welcome news for Valley seniors, offering a lifeline of financial support during these challenging times. With the filing period now open, eligible individuals are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to secure the rebates they are entitled to under the revised guidelines.
