Property tax, rent rebates to be issued July 1

About $232 million in property tax and rent rebates will soon be headed to nearly half a million Pennsylvania seniors, widows, widowers and people with disabilities, State Treasurer Rob McCord said Thursday.

McCord said the Treasury Department will issue 492,000 payments from the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program on July 1.

Eligible citizens may continue to apply through Dec. 31 for rebates on property taxes or rent paid in 2012. Those applications will be reviewed and paid as they are received.
