Hello there truckers, the Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 is now due by 12/31/2019 for vehicles first used since November 2019. This deadline is been drafted by the IRS federal law that indicates that Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the month following the month of its first use.

You may even think if this deadline has anything to do about the regular Annual renewals which are basically due by June & payable until August. But, it does not. This deadline is only concerned about vehicles that are into service since November 2019.

The Heavy highway vehicle is basically paid on trucks with a minimum taxable gross weight of 55000 lbs and it’s paid for vehicles that are used over the public highways for commercial, agricultural & logging purposes. The desired mileage limit for exemption is drafted upon these vehicles based on the nature of its use.

For commercial based units & logging vehicles the desired mileage limit of exemption is said to be 5000 miles each and for Agricultural based vehicles, it is said to be 7500 miles. Only when to seem to exceed the respective mileage based on your vehicle’s desired purpose of use you need to make the tax payment to the IRS full in advance for the period it needs to be reported.

Failure to pay the tax dues on time results in incurrence of penalties & interests on top of the requisite tax due owed anywhere ranging from 2.5% to 4.5% of the total tax due amount to be paid granting no further extensions whatsoever.

How to Claim Refund on Form 2290 Tax Dues Paid Upfront!

Paid the taxes in full for the previous tax year but you vehicle ran less than 5000 miles? You will be eligible to claim a full refund or transfer the credits to the current tax year (If you plan to operate more than 5000 miles)

A claim for refund can be for the following scenarios,

  • Over paid tax due by mistake.
  • Taxable vehicle Sold/ Transferred / Destroyed or Stolen.
  • The vehicle was used within the mileage use limit (5,000 miles or less; 7,500 or less for agricultural vehicles).

In this article we will see especially about Low mileage vehicle credits refund and transfer

Vehicles used within the taxable mileage: The taxable mileage limit for a heavy vehicle is 5,000 miles (7,500 for agricultural). As said before the taxes are paid for the whole year and if your vehicle has run under 5,000 miles (7,500 for agricultural vehicles) you are eligible for low mileage credits. This can be applied only when the entire tax period (July 1 – June 30) is completed. The Vehicle mileage credits is limited only to miles operated on the vehicle regardless to the number of owners.

To get a refund based on low mileage you need to start a new return and select form “8849 schedule-6”. This is a special form dedicated for refund purposes. Then over the next page you need to select Low mileage vehicle credits to declare your vehicle exempt from tax. Over the next page just select “add vehicles” to enter the VIN number, first used month and reason for refund, also you need to attach the copy of the schedule-1 copy for reference. That is all within just 3 steps you can claim a refund on the taxes paid.

To transfer the credits to the current year filing (Only if the truck is assumed to run over 5000 miles) start a new return and select “form 2290”, select the first used month and tax year and over the next page you have to select two boxes which says “taxable vehicle & Low mileage vehicle credits”. The next page is where you can see two rows , the first one would be for entering the truck details on which the taxes needs to be transferred and the second one is to declare the previous year filing under low mileage credits. Then the rest is the same just proceed further with payment. 

By following these steps you can either claim a refund or transfer the credits to the current tax year

Professional advise on Claiming your overpaid 2290 Tax Due!

Double payments we all face this issues on daily basis don’t we? This happens either because of a technical error or because of our ignorance. But we do always have an option to claim it back. Now how a double payment occurs when it comes to Form 2290 filing and the method to reclaims the excess paid taxes.

Generally when a tax return is filed electronically the tax payer is offered 4 different payment options to make the tax payment to the IRS namely:

  1. Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW)
  2. Electronic Federal Tax Payment System
  3. Credit/Debit card
  4. Check or Money order.

Now let’s discuss the possible outcomes for overpayments via the above mentioned tax payment options. While using EFW the payment gets automatically cleared by the IRS from your given checking or saving account within 24-48 hours from the time your tax return got processed by the IRS. Or by reporting the same vehicle twice for the same tax period

Besides, there is no specific paperwork provided by the IRS to indicate the tax due clearance hence most people tend to make another payment to the IRS using an alternative options hence ending up paying taxes twice.

On the other hand while using a credit card, there are chances to process payment twice due to multiple clicks or responses given from the tax payer’s end over the IRS authorized payment processor’s website namely www.PayUSAtax.com, www.Pay1040.com & www.officialpayments.com.

Hence, if you had an over-payment in your 2290 tax due payment, do not hesitate to claim a refund by e-filing the claim Form 8849 Schedule 6 to receive the refund check in your mailing address in 21 business days.
