State Rep. Mark Painter reminds area senior citizens and others eligible for the state's Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program that the deadline to apply has been extended until Dec. 31 and that a provision of the law could increase their rebate up to $975.
Painter said the maximum rebate for most eligible Pennsylvanians is $650. However, due to high property taxes in Pottstown Borough and Pottsgrove School District, eligible recipients who pay more than 15 percent of their income in property taxes may be eligible for a supplemental additional 50 percent rebate, which could boost the amount to as much as $975.
