Applications for rebates on property taxes or on rent paid in 2012 will be available in late February, the Cumberland County Aging and Community Services office announced.

A resident who received or qualified for a property tax/rent rebate within the past year will automatically receive an application in the mail. For those who did not receive a rebate in 2011 but may qualify to receive a rebate in 2013, applications will be available at www.papropertytaxrelief.com.

In early March, residents can call toll-free at 1-888-222-9190 or locally at 240-6110 for applications or to make an appointment with Cumberland County Aging and Community Services, 1100 Claremont Road, Carlisle, Pa.

The office also is scheduling appointments to assist with completion of the application form. Appointments will be available every Wednesday beginning Feb. 13 through the end of June 2013.

The rebate program benefits eligible Pennsylvanians age 65 and older; widows and widowers age 50 and older; and people with disabilities age 18 and older. The income limit is $35,000 for homeowners and $15,000 for renters (excluding one-half of Social Security income). The maximum rebate for qualified homeowners is $975 a year and renters can receive rebates up to $650 a year.

Applications must be postmarked by June 30, 2013. Rebate checks are mailed beginning July 1 each year.
