Senator Killion Takes Part in First Direct Shipment of Wine under Act 39

On Wednesday August 24, I was able to join Chris Le Vine and his staff at Grace Winery to take part in their first direct shipment of wine under Act 39. This Act allows for Pennsylvania wineries to ship their goods all across the country and allow for Pennsylvania residents to have wine shipped directly to their homes from wineries out of state. Local wineries will now be able to compete nationally and residents will be able to enjoy their favorite wines from any vineyard in the country. Act 39 is a huge step forward for Pennsylvania liquor laws. 

Some other new liquor changes include the sale of wine in grocery stores, six pack sales in convenience stores, expanded hours of operations at LCB-operated stores on Sundays and holidays—all of which previously did not exist.


Property Tax and Rent Rebate Deadline Extension

Pennsylvania is extending from June 30, 2016 until December 31, 2016 the Property Tax and Rent Rebate Program deadline 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. Questions may be answered by the Online Customer Service Center. 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.
