Additionally, the state announced that everyone who claimed a rebate will also receive an additional check worth 70 percent of the initial refund amount.

You will need your:

  • Social Security number
  • Claim year
  • Date of birth

In 2020, the rebate program sent roughly $213million to more than 440,000 seniors in Pennsylvania.

In total, the program has dispersed more than $7.3billion since it started in 1971.

Rebates across the country

Amid historically high revenue and inflation, several other states have decided to put money back in the pockets of taxpayers.

There were two Illinois tax rebates available this year: an individual income tax rebate and a property tax rebate.

Everyone who is eligible will earn $50 (or $100 if filing jointly), plus $100 per dependent, which is capped at three.

That means a married couple with three children will get a $400 rebate.

The property tax rebate is worth $300, meaning the maximum amount you could earn altogether is $700.

Massachusetts residents will get back as much as 13 percent of what they paid in 2021 state income taxes this month.

There is no reported maximum rebate as it will be calculated in relation to a household’s income.

Those who make around $40,000 per year will see just over $200 in their accounts and those who make $1million or more will see up to $7,000 in rebates.

South Carolina has sent out more than $942million to $1.39million residents over the last few weeks.

Individual income tax rebates have been sent to eligible taxpayers as either direct deposits or paper checks.

The state announced this was just the first wave of payments that went out to residents who had filed their taxes by October 17.

Those who filed after this date will receive their payment in March.
