House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session

Subject: Expanding the Property Tax Rent Rebate Program for Renters
In the near future, I intend to reintroduce legislation that would amend the Taxpayer Relief Act of 2006 by increasing the maximum income limit for Property Tax Rent Rebates for renters from $15,000 to $20,000. This legislation is fundamentally similar to House Bill 691, which was introduced during the 2015-2016 session.

Many low-income Pennsylvanians are unable to benefit from the program due to the prohibitively low income threshold they must meet in order to qualify as a claimant. This minor change will provide much needed financial assistance to some of the most vulnerable citizens of our Commonwealth.

Please join me in supporting this legislation.

Introduced as HB1118
