  • Senior Rebate Information

    by
    The Board of Directors of the East Stroudsburg Area School District has revised the process for applying for its 2014 Senior Citizens Property Tax Rebate Program.  The changes will simplify the process and provide for more timely payments of the rebates.  Eligible individuals may still receive up to $1,425 in rebates from the District in addition to the rebates they receive from the State program.
     
    Under the new process, individuals applying for the District's rebate program must apply for and receive a rebate under the State program.  The State form, PA-1000, and proof of receipt of the State rebate will be sufficient evidence to qualify for the District rebate. In order to provide applicants the opportunity to apply for and receive the State rebate, the District's application period for the 2014 Senior Citizens Property Tax Rebate Program has been changed to July 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015.
