PA property tax rebates: PA & NJ
PA offers a substantial property tax rebate annually for elderly homeowners with incomes under $45,000, using a specific formula. The rebate is claimed by submitting form PA-1000 which is mailed to you routinely if you qualified the previous year. We can obtain forms for first time filers.
It is necessary to have your tax bills stamped "PAID" by the tax collector or to have a transcript of paid taxes issued by the tax collector. Submission deadline is usually June 30. For most filers, the rebate is $250.00. Depending on your level of income, it can be as high as $1,000.
Most school districts also offer a rebate if you qualified for the PA rebate. Rules vary among districts; however, most districts require that you photocopy your PA rebate check and submit the photocopy with your district application. Typical school district rebates are $250.00. Alert - in the Pen Argyl School District, you should obtain required forms in January of each year.
Renters - PA also offers a rebate to low income renters. While application is made using form PA-1000, filing requirements differ from those of the property tax rebate program.
NJ property tax relief - Elderly NJ homeowners may apply for a property tax rebate using a NJ application. This provision is known as the New Jersey Freeze.
