One-time Checks Sent to Thousands of Pennsylvania Residents

2017: Hurricane Irma becomes the most powerful hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic Basin region, with winds of 185mph.

Thousands of Pennsylvania residents are in for a pleasant surprise.

Gov. Tom Wolf (D) announced that older and disabled Pennsylvanians who received a rebate on property taxes or rent paid in 2021 are also set to get a one-time bonus rebate.

“I am proud that bonus rebates are starting to roll out to Pennsylvanians in need this week,” Wolf said on Aug. 24.

“I proposed these bonus rebates back in February to help low-income Pennsylvanians deal with inflation and higher costs. For older adults in particular – many of whom are on a fixed income – a bonus Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program rebate this year will be a gamechanger. These bonus rebates will help older adults and Pennsylvanians with disabilities stay in their homes.”

Qualified recipients will receive a one-time payment equal to 70% of their original rebate, up to $1,657.50. The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue has already processed 361,042 claimants.

Revenue Secretary Dan Hassell said that while the one-time bonus rebates are being sent out ahead of schedule, they ask certain claimants to be patient.

“At the same time, we are asking claimants who are expecting a paper check in the mail to be patient,” Hassell said.

“It will take several weeks to mail all of the checks for the one-time bonus rebates, whereas those who elected direct deposit on their application forms should see their bonus rebates sooner. I would also like to thank the staff at the Pennsylvania Treasury for working with us to ensure that bonus rebates are distributed as quickly as possible.”

    Would the great state of Delaware like a city that’s built on tradition, taxpayer money, and corruption? The city that Pennsylvania would love to give to Delaware would really increase Delawares tax base, even will all the dead people on the election rolls, mostly Democrats are great in being sneaky, and not following the laws, heck they don’t even care about the laws. A city where shootings have increased by 35%. the people are trained at a young age in corruption 101, lying 201, illegal use of firearms 105, is considered a sanctuary city and loves illegal aliens. Please accept the great city of Philadelphia with our blessings.

  5. If people are smart they will take the money and still vote Republican. Let it be a payback for what the Dems have done to this country. Dr. Oz will work with President Trump and he will be back in the WH sooner than you are thinking.
