You only have until December 16 to transition your full fleet to ELDs

While FMCSA still in Phase 2 of ELD Implementation, December 16, 2019, is a critical date as the AOBRD grandfather provision expires. This provision allows fleets that had AOBRDs installed in their trucks prior to December 18, 2017, to continue using AOBRDs for two years following the ELD Compliance Date. Beginning December 16, 2019, motor carriers and drivers subject to the ELD rule must use self-certified ELDs that are registered with FMCSA.

The ELD rule applies to motor carriers and drivers who are currently required to keep records of duty service (RODS) under the hours-of-service (HOS) regulations. Drivers who use the time card exception, and don’t keep paper RODs, will not be required to use ELDs. The following drivers may keep paper RODS:

  • Drivers who keep RODS no more than 8 days during any 30-day period.
  • Driveaway-towaway drivers (transporting a vehicle for sale, lease, or repair), provided the vehicle driven is part of the shipment or the vehicle being transported is a motor home or recreational vehicle trailer.
  • Drivers of vehicles manufactured before model year 2000.

However, a carrier can choose to use an ELD, even if it is not required.

Basically the Form 2290 is known to be the Heavy Highway vehicle used tax return which is filed on vehicles which possess a minimum gross weight of 55000 lbs or more and if the same truck is been used over the public highway for commercial purposes.

Having said that 55,000 is the minimum weight required to be able to qualify for a Heavy Vehicle however it must not be assumed to the maximum weight of a truck, Heavy trucks tonnage index refers to weights over a 100,000 lbs easy. So, when there is a requirement for a change of the gross weight of the vehicle, all you need is an amended 2290 Form.

By filing an amendment you’d only make the difference in the tax due payment in accordance to the increase in the gross weight in lbs. As there is a $22 increase versus an increase of every 1000 lbs. By filing the amended Form 2290, you would receive a new copy of schedule 1 with a digital watermarked indicating e-filed with the date stamp.
