Notice of extending the Pennsylvania property tax rebate deadline each year is available at Revenue.PA.gov, states the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue. As of June 2015, the deadline for older adults and disabled residents to apply for rebates of 2014 taxes paid is extended from June 30 to Dec. 31, 2015.
The revenue department examines the rent and property tax program annually near the June 30 application deadline to determine whether funds are available to extend the deadline, notes the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue. Rebate distribution begins on July 1. After June 30, the department distributes rebates as it receives and processes claims. The application form PA-1000 required for the free program is available at Revenue.PA.gov or by calling 888-222-9190. Pennsylvania homeowners and renters age 65 and above, widows and widowers age 50 and above, and disabled people age 18 and above are eligible, within certain income limits.
