Pennycuick Continues Local Property Tax/Rent Rebate Assistance in July

            Sen. Tracy Pennycuick (R-24) will be holding more workshops in July to provide assistance to residents applying for the state Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program and urges interested area seniors to make an appointment. The deadline has been extended to December 31.

            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.

            "This program is a valuable resource for residents, especially during these challenging times" said Pennycyick. "We encourage everyone who may be eligible to take advantage of this extended deadline and reach out to our office for assistance with the application process."

Residents can call Pennycuick's office at 215-541-2388 or visit online to schedule an appointment for one of the following dates: July 16, 9 p.m. – 12 p.m., Longswamp Township Building, 1112 State St, Mertztown; July 23, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m., Towamencin Township Building, 1090 Troxel Road, Lansdale; July 23, p.m. – 4 p.m.; North Wales Borough Hall, 300 School Street, North Wales; July 15, 17, 22, 24 & 29, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m., MCCC-Pottstown, 16 E High Street, Pottstown; July 22, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m., Trappe Borough Hall Building, 525 W Main Street, Trappe; July 24, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m., Amity Township Building, 2004 Weavertown Road, Douglasville, PA; and July 24, 1 p.m. –  4 p.m., Bally Borough Hall, 425 Chestnut Street, 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 & account number if you wish to have payment received by direct deposit.
