Tax rebate info available online
A new Web resource will allow individuals who apply for state-granted Property Tax or Rent Rebates to check the status of their applications online, according to state Sen. Wayne D. Fontana.
The new Web site, http://www.papropertytaxrelief.com, hosted by the Department of Revenue, provides applicants the opportunity to check their rebate status as soon as six weeks after submitting their application.
The Web site enhances customer service by allowing individuals to check the status of their application in a timely fashion.
To check the status of their rebate individuals must enter their Social Security number, anticipated rebate amount and date of birth. They can then obtain claim status confirmation, the actual amount of the rebate, and the date the rebate is expected to be mailed or direct deposited.
Applicants can also use an automated phone service to check their rebate status by calling, toll-free, 1-888-PATAXES.
Rebate checks will be distributed by the Department of Revenue beginning July 1.
