Pashinski’s office hosts legislative outreach for expanded Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program

HARRISBURG, Feb. 23 – State Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski hosted a legislative outreach for seniors today at the Senior Citizens Center in Wilkes-Barre.

“With the new changes to the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program, it can be a little confusing for seniors and others who qualify for the program to know if they qualify and how much money will be returned to them this year in comparison to other years,” said Pashinski, D-Luzerne. “My staff is well informed on this topic and help members of our community every day with filling out the application. It was great that we could do this outreach today to reach more people here at home.”

Pashinski’s staff assisted constituents with their Property Tax/Rent Rebate applications. This is one of many outreach events that Pashinski has planned with residents in the community.

“This event was targeted specifically for the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program, but my office is knowledgeable about other state government programs and services as well. While I plan on having more of these events in the future, my office is always open to the community to help with filling out applications for other programs,” he said.

Pashinski voted for the law that expanded the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program, which increased both the income eligibility and rebate amounts. He also introduced legislation that would clarify the amount and source of school property tax relief on school district tax notices received by taxpayers.
