Penn Manor Offers Property Tax Rebate Program
Penn Manor School District residents may qualify for state and local rebates of up to $650 each on their school property taxes or rent payments from the previous year. The program benefits residents age 65 or older, widows and widowers age 50 and older and people with disabilities who are age 18 and older.
To qualify, homeowners must earn no more than $35,000 to apply for the state rebate and $20,000 to apply for the Penn Manor rebate for the 2016 tax year. The school district’s cutoff was previously $15,000. There also is a state rebate program for renters earning no more than $15,000. When calculating total income, applicants should include 50% of Social Security income and 100% of other income types. Spouses, personal representatives or estates also may file rebate claims on behalf of claimants who lived at least one day in the previous year. The maximum standard rebate is $650, but supplemental rebates for homeowners can boost the amount of the state rebate to $975.
Applicants must first qualify for a state rebate before applying for a Penn Manor property tax rebate. Over the past two years, taxpayers have received refunds from the school district totaling $80,000. Applications are currently being accepted for tax bills from the 2016-2017 year.
