The one-time additional property tax/rent rebate for qualifying Pennsylvania residents has begun being mailed. Bonus tax rebates in Pennsylvania are due shortly, so don’t delay if you haven’t already.
Further, Governor Tom Wolf urged Pennsylvania residents who are eligible for the tax credit to apply for it before the deadline passed yesterday.
Instructions for Requesting a Refund of Taxes Paid on Your Pennsylvania Bonus
Pennsylvanians who are 65 or older or have a disability and are eligible for a rebate on rent or property taxes paid in 2021 may be eligible for an increase in that rebate, as proposed earlier this year by Governor Wolf.
Pennsylvania residents who are eligible for the Property Tax/Rent Reimbursement (PTRR) Program can receive an additional tax rebate of up to 70% of their initial rebate. They will continue to get their annual reimbursement in addition to this one-time tax refund.
The major goal of this one-time reimbursement is to help those who need it most financially recover from the COVID-19 outbreak. Approximately $140 million will come from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which will be used by Pennsylvania to pay out refunds.
If you have already submitted a rebate application (PA-1000) for 2021 real estate taxes or rent, you will automatically get the reimbursement amount. 247wallst claims that the refund would be sent to them mechanically.
In order to receive the rebate, applicants must submit their paperwork. A request for a Pennsylvania bonus tax rebate must be submitted by the end of 2022.
In a press release on Thursday, Governor Wolf also emphasized the importance of meeting the deadline.
