Is Pennsylvania the Only State With a Tax Rebate Program for Rentals?

Pennsylvania is not the only state with a tax rebate program for rentals; Minnesota, Vermont and Maine have renter's rebate programs, according to the states' revenue departments. In Minnesota, qualified renters receive a tax refund of approximately 17 percent of the rent they pay, notes the Minnesota Department of Revenue.

As of 2015, legal residents of Vermont who rent for the entire calendar year and whose income does not exceed a threshold amount may be eligible for refunds of the portion of rent they paid in excess of a preset percentage of household income, according to Vermont Department of Taxes. In Maine, renters who reside in, rent and live in a home in the state as their primary residence at any time during the tax year may be eligible to receive a property tax credit, according to Maine Revenue Services.
