Pennsylvania is offering inflation-relief payments to low-income homeowners. Those who qualify for the Property Tax Rent/Rebate program will get a one-time tax rebate.

To qualify, homeowners must be 65 and older, widows and widowers 50 and older, or people with disabilities 18 and older, CNBC reported.
