If the tax return for the year of purchase or lease has not yet been filed, the most recently-filed tax return within two (2) years of the year of vehicle purchase or lease will be requested for income verification.
If you haven’t filed a tax return within two (2) years of the year the vehicle was purchased or leased, SCE may, at its sole discretion, consider additional documentation to calculate income. Examples include pay stubs, W2s, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefit documents, etc.
Filing an extension for the requested tax year is not considered filing for the purposes of the program’s income calculations. In these cases, additional documentation may be requested to evaluate your income for the non-filing year. If you are unable to provide additional requested documentation for income verification, you are not eligible for the Rebate Plus option.
