The Department of Revenue will pay property tax and rent rebate claims filed on behalf of claimants who lived at least 1 day during a claim year and meet all other eligibility criteria. Such claims can be filed by spouses, personal representatives or estates, on behalf of deceased claimants.

As a result of House Bill 1067, income eligibility guidelines for the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program have changed so that income increases due solely to Social Security cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) will no longer disqualify claimants from receiving rebates.
