Senator Jake Corman at Kids Day with the SpikesPlease join me for a free “Kids Day with the State College Spikes” from noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 30, at Medlar Field in Lubrano Park in State College, PA.

The educational event will feature representatives from state and local agencies who will provide information for parents, kids and grandchildren. Attendees will have an opportunity to take part in games and activities, including a dunk tank, enjoy a free lunch and refreshments and meet the Spikes players.

Door prizes will include a spikes autographed replica jersey and bat, a spikes suite rental, 20 suite tickets and a spikes fan basket.

This is a fun and informative event for kids and families, and I urge area residents to stop by. There are many activities, a chance to meet Spikes players, and learn more about state and local programs that may be helpful to families.

Property Tax and Rent Rebate Deadline Extension

Pennsylvania is extending the Property Tax and Rent Rebate Program deadline until December 31, 2016, for eligible Pennsylvanians and issuing a reminder that free application assistance is available through local Area Agencies on Aging, Senior Centers and PA Department of Revenue district offices.

Age, income and disability are critical eligibility factors. First time filers will need photocopies of documents providing proof of age, a spouse’s death certificate if widowed, and proof of permanent disability, if applicable. Obtain the Property Tax and Rent Rebate Program application online or by mail or call 1-888-PATAXES.

My office is always available to help senior citizens, disabled individuals and other qualified residents complete the PA-1000 Property Tax and Rent Rebate application.

Please be sure to stop by one of my offices for assistance.

If you have already applied and 8 to 10 weeks have lapsed since filing, contact the PA Department of Revenue for a status report on your rebate.

Unclaimed Property Awaits Rightful Owners

More than $136 million in unclaimed tangible property and money was returned to its rightful owners during 2015, according to the Pennsylvania Treasury.

The Treasury reports it began 2016 seeking the legal owners of $2.5 billion in unclaimed property. Claimants are encouraged to file a claim form, free of charge, with the Bureau of Unclaimed Property rather than pay the 15% maximum finder’s fee.

One in 10 residents have unclaimed property. The increased popularity of gift certificates and gift cards can also bring an increase in unclaimed property, as Pennsylvania requires those with an expiration date and/or any fees to be reported as unclaimed property. Search the Treasury’s Unclaimed Property data base or call the toll-free number, 800-222-2046, for information and assistance.
