The LuLac Edition #680, Dec. 29th, 2008



Senate Democratic Leader Robert Mellow reminded Pennsylvania’s seniors they have until Dec. 31, to submit Property Tax/Rent Rebate program applications. According to Mellow, roughly 128,000 Pennsylvanians who qualify for the rebate still have not applied. “It is extremely important that every single senior or disabled Pennsylvanian who qualifies for this program submit an application,” Mellow said. “As the deadline approaches, heating and energy bills are due, and some residents desperately need the money. It would be a shame for them to miss out.” A maximum $650 rebate is available for eligible Pennsylvanians age 65 and older; widows and widowers age 50 and older; and people with disabilities age 18 and older. As much as $786 million in property tax relief will find its way into the pockets of thousands of Pennsylvanians, including expanded rebates from the Property Tax/Rent Rebate program and general property tax relief for homeowners distributed through school districts. Mellow said applications are available at his District Offices in Peckville, P.O. Box B, Peckville, PA 18452, and Mt. Pocono, 102 Pocono Blvd., Mt. Pocono, PA 18344. Applications are also available to download and print at, as well as at Department of Revenue district offices, area agencies on aging, and senior centers. For assistance in completing the20application or to determine eligibility, residents can call toll-free, 1-888-222-9190.
