One-time bonus Property Tax and Rent Rebates are being sent out to qualifying Pennsylvanians this week.
PENNSYLVANIA STATE | The Property Tax and Rent Rebate (PTRR) Program provides additional relief to vulnerable Pennsylvania residents still recovering from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. One-time bonus rebates, funded through approximately $140 million in funding from the federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), started going out to qualifying residents last week. However, many will be sent out over the next few days.
“If you already received your PTRR check for this year, don’t be surprised when your bonus payment hits your bank account or your mailbox,” said Gov. Wolf. “I proposed these one-time bonus rebates back in February, and I’m so glad to see checks rolling out to Pennsylvanians across the commonwealth. At a time of painful inflation, this money will help older adults and Pennsylvanians with disabilities bridge the gap between a fixed income and higher prices.”
Pennsylvanians who have already been approved for the PTRR program in 2021 are automatically qualified for this year’s one-time bonus rebate and are not required to take additional action. Those who have not previously been approved may apply at mypath.pa.gov. There is no charge to apply.
“We are reminding eligible Pennsylvanians that there is still time to apply for rebates on property taxes and rent paid in 2021. You can use our online filing system at mypath.pa.gov to get your application submitted prior to the filing deadline of Dec. 31, 2022,” Revenue Secretary Dan Hassell said. “We’ll work as quickly as we can to make sure that applications are processed and that claimants receive the funds they are entitled to, including the one-time bonus rebate that the Governor made possible.”
The Department of Revenue is mailing claimants letters providing a breakdown of the one-time bonus rebate program. Applicants may also visit the Online Customer Service Center for helpful tips and answers to commonly asked questions about the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program.
