Pennsylvania Rental and Property Tax Rebate Application Deadline Extended


Now you got some more time to get this tax refund. 

As the Acting Secretary of Revenue Pat Browne announced, the last date is extended to Dec. 31, 2023.

So older adults and Pennsylvanians with disabilities can apply till the end of this year for rebates on rent and property taxes paid in 2022.

If you want to claim the Property Tax/Rent Rebate (PTRR) program, you need to file a rebate application online at

The government makes it easy for Pennsylvanians to annually benefit from the program by applying online. 

As the acting secretary Browne reveals, this online tool(myPATH ) makes it easy for applicants to apply for tax rebates. 

But where does this extension in the tax and property rebate program deadline come from? It came when Governor Josh Shapiro called for major PTRR program expansion in his 2023-2024 proposed budget.

Moreover, he also proposed increasing the standard rebate from $650 to $ 1,000 while the income limits for renters and homeowners would remain the same and increase to $45,000.

So through this extension, nearly 175,000 more Pennsylvanians will qualify for a property tax or rent refund. Simultaneously, according to the Department of Revenue, about 430,000 claimants who have already qualified will also see an increase in their rebates.

But the current deadline was June 30. If the funds were available, the Property Tax/Rent Rebate program would extend its deadline to DEC. 31.  

However, the Rental and Property tax rebate program disbursed the funds on July 1.
