Langerholc: Local Property Tax/Rent Rebate Assistance Available Thursday

HARRISBURG – Sen. Wayne Langerholc, Jr. (R-35) urges interested area seniors to stop by the Cambria County Library on Thursday to receive assistance applying for the state Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program.

The assistance will be provided Thursday, March 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Cambria County Library Community Room, 248 Main Street in Johnstown.

The Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program is open to residents age 65 or older, widows and widowers age 50 or older, or anyone age 18 and older who is 100% disabled, with a household income of $45,000 or less, counting only half of Social Security. Rebate amounts are calculated based on 2023 income and the amount of property tax or rent paid in 2023, with rebates ranging from $380 to $1,000.

“The new guidelines have allowed more individuals to qualify for the rebate,” said Langerholc. “My office will be happy to assist with filling out the required forms needed to apply for the rebate.”

The following documents are required to complete the process:

  • Total Social Security/Railroad Retirement
  • Proof of SSI or Disability
  • Proof of Age/First Time Filer Driver’s License or Photo ID
  • 1099 pension statement
  • 1099 interest statement
  • 1099 dividend statement
  • Proof of W-2 or other income
  • Voided check showing routing number and account number if you wish to have payment received by direct deposit.

Property owners will need proof of taxes paid, either stamped or signed by their local tax collector. Renters need a rent certificate filled out and signed by their landlord. More information on the Property Tax/Rent Rebate program can be found at

Residents unable to attend but in need assistance can contact Langerholc’s office at 814-266-2277.
