Pennycuick Wraps Up Property Tax/Rent Rebate Workshops in June

            Sen. Tracy Pennycuick (R-24) will hold her final workshops in June to provide assistance to residents applying for the state Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program and urges interested area seniors to make an appointment.

            The Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program is open to residents age 65 or older, widows and widowers age 50 or older, or anyone age 18 and older who is 100% disabled, with a household income of $45,000 or less, counting only half of Social Security. Rebate amounts are calculated based on 2023 income and the amount of property tax or rent paid in 2023, with rebates ranging from $380 to $1,000.

            "Over the last few months, we have helped many residents with their applications, and I encourage folks to make an appointment for assistance before the end of June," Pennycuick said. "Income limits and refund amounts have been increased, so residents who did not previously qualify for this relief might now be eligible."

            Residents can call Pennycuick's office at 215-541-2388 to schedule an appointment for one of the following dates: June 10, 12, 17, 24, 26, 9 a.m. to noon, Montgomery County Community College-Pottstown, 101 College Drive, North Hall, Room 224, Pottstown;

June 18, 9 a.m. to noon, Longswamp Township Building, 1112 State St., Mertztown; June 10 & 24, 1-4 p.m., Trappe Borough Hall Building, 525 W. Main St., Trappe; June 11 & 25, 9 a.m. to noon; Towamencin Township Building, 1090 Troxel Road, Lansdale; June 11 & 25, 1-4 p.m., North Wales Borough Hall, 300 School St., North Wales; June 12 & 26, 9 a.m. to noon, Amity Township Building, 2004 Weavertown Road, Douglasville; and June 12 & 26, 1-4 p.m., Bally Borough Hall, 425 Chestnut St., Bally.

            The following documents are required to complete the process: Total Social Security/Railroad Retirement; Proof of SSI or Disability; Proof of Age/First Time Filer Driver's License or Photo ID; 1099 Pension Statement; 1099 Interest Statement; 1099 Dividend Statement; Proof of W-2 or other income; and voided check showing routing number and account number if you wish to have payment received by direct deposit

            Property owners will need proof of taxes paid, either stamped or signed by their local tax collector. Renters need a rent certificate filled out and signed by their landlord.
