Pennsylvania has begun delivering the one-time additional property tax/rent payment or stimulus checks to eligible residents. If you haven’t received it already, take action fast because Pennsylvania’s deadline for bonus tax rebates is arriving.
Governor Tom Wolf additionally asked Pennsylvanians who are eligible for the tax credit to submit their applications by yesterday’s deadline.
How to Claim PA Bonus Tax Refunds
When it came time to apply for a rebate on 2021 rent or property taxes, Pennsylvanians who are elderly or disabled should be given more money, according to a proposal made by Governor Wolf earlier this year.
A one-time bonus tax rebate similar to 70% of their first refund is offered to qualified Pennsylvanians under the Property Tax/Rent Rebate (PTRR) Program. They will continue to get their yearly payment in addition to this one-time tax rebate.
The main goal of this one-time refund is to provide additional help to the neediest residents as they continue to rebuild financially from the COVID-19 outbreak. To distribute the refund money, Pennsylvania will use around $140 million in American Rescue Plan Act funds.
There is no additional procedure required for those who have already completed an application (PA-1000) for reimbursement on real estate taxes or rent paid in 2021. They will instantly get the tax rebate, based on 247wallst.
Those who are qualified for the rebate but have not yet done so must apply. The application for Pennsylvania’s bonus tax rebate must be filed by December 31, 2022. On Thursday, Governor Wolf also warned them of the deadlines in a news release.
