Apply for Property Tax Credits and Rent Rebates (Circuit Breaker) for Seniors and Persons with Disabilities

This service helps seniors and persons with disabilities apply for the Property Tax Credit or Rent Rebates (Circuit Breaker) which gives money back to eligible individuals for a portion of their paid property tax or rent.

Overview

The St. Louis Area Agency on Aging (SLAAA) helps seniors and persons with disabilities apply for the Missouri Property Tax Credit Claim (also known as Circuit Breaker). 

The Missouri Property Tax Credit Claim gives back a portion of the rent or real estate tax paid for that year by persons 65 and older, or persons 18-64 that receive SSI, SSD, or Veterans Disability. 

The credit is for a maximum of $750 for renters and $1,100 for owners who owned and occupied their home. The amount the person receives is based on the amount of real estate taxes or rent paid and the total household income (taxable and non-taxable).

Preparation
