Those eligible for the PTC rebate from Colorado, include seniors, those with disabilities, and individuals with income below $16,925 (the threshold income for married couples is $22,858).
“This money-saving opportunity is one of over 100 ways we are continuing to save Coloradans money,” Gov. Polis said in a news release.
The primary objective of the PTC rebate is to provide supplemental income to beneficiaries for the expenses of heat, rent, and property taxes. The PTC rebate could offer about $7 million in relief this year, as per the information from Polis’ office.
