On August 24, Governor Wolf announced that thousands of one-time rebates for claimants of the Property Tax/Rebate Program have started to be distributed. These rebates are a result of a proposal Governor Wolf made earlier this year that was signed into law earlier this month.
This one-time bonus rebate, which will be paid to older and disabled Pennsylvanians who were approved to receive a rebate on property taxes or rent paid in 2021, is equal to 70 percent of their original rebate amount ($1,657.50 maximum).
Eligible claimants of the Property Tax/Rebate Program who have already filed an application for a rebate on property tax or rent paid in 2021 do not have to take any further action to receive this bonus rebate. Eligible claimants who have not yet filed an application are encouraged to do so by using MyPATH.
