Tax Amnesty Nets State $114 Million

Pennsylvania’s latest Tax Amnesty Program brought in $114.5 million, surpassing the $100 million net revenue previously estimated.

The program, which ran from April to June, waived all penalties and half of the interest for eligible individuals or businesses that applied and paid their delinquent state taxes. Taxpayers who were eligible but didn’t participate in the program will now be assessed a 5 percent penalty.

The proceeds generated will apply toward the 2016-17 fiscal year, which ended June 30.

SEPTA Senior ID Photo Day

I will be hosting a SEPTA Senior ID Photo Day, along with The Open Link at The Center, at The Open Link on Wednesday, Aug. 9, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The center is located at 517 Jefferson St. in East Greenville.

SEPTA personnel will be on site to accept applications for the SEPTA Senior ID card and take the photos for the ID cards.

SEPTA’s Senior Ride Free program allows Pennsylvania residents, age 65 or older, to ride free at all times on all SEPTA transit services (bus, Market-Frankford Line, Broad Street Line, trolley and the Norristown High Speed Line). Regional rail fares for seniors are $1 for rides within the state of Pennsylvania.

Photos for the SEPTA Senior ID cards will be taken by appointment. Seniors interested in receiving a SEPTA Senior ID card should call The Center at 215-679-6550 to make an appointment (appointments will be made in 5-minute increments). Proof of identification and age is required. Seniors who currently hold a photo-less SEPTA ID are asked to bring that card when applying for the new photo ID.

As always, my Red Hill district office accepts applications for the SEPTA Senior ID card and takes the photos for the ID cards on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. An appointment is not required. Please call my Red Hill office at 215-679-3152 with any questions.

Scam Alert for Seniors

Seniors should be aware of reports from other areas of the state of a scam that may involve them. An individual misrepresenting himself as a Medicare agent is making appointments for house visits with beneficiaries to discuss their benefits. The individual drives a silver Jeep Liberty with a New York license plate and introduces himself as Barry Felps or Phelps.

Remember, Medicare representatives never schedule house calls or contact beneficiaries to obtain Medicare numbers or sell products. Also never share Medicare information with any stranger who calls, visits or approaches you in a public setting.
