Renter Rebate Claim Information

The Renter Rebate Program refunds to eligible renters the portion of rent paid that exceeds an established percentage for household income.

Eligibility for Renter Rebate
You must meet ALL of the following eligibility requirements:

  • You were a legal resident of VT for the entire calendar year 2013; and

  • You were not claimed in 2013 as a dependent of another taxpayer; and

  • Your household income in 2013 does not exceed $47,000; and

  • You are the only person in the household making a renter rebate claim; and

  • You rented for all 12 months in 2013.
    (One Exception: If you owned a Vermont homestead in 2013, sold the homestead before April 1, 2013, rented on December 31, 2013, and your household income is $47,000 or less, you may be eligible for a renter rebate for rent paid in 2013. This is the only situation where a renter rebate can be for less than 12 months rental)

Due Date: April 15, 2014
Claims may be filed up to October 15, 2014. Returns filed after October 15 cannot be accepted regardless of the reason the claim could not be filed.

Claims may be filed seperately from your income tax return, Form IN-111.

The Department considers a renter rebate claim timely filed when it is mailed through the U.S. Post Office and the Department receives it within 3 business days of the due date. If you bring the renter rebate claim to the Department in person, you must deliver ir on or before the return due date.
