How to report an Increase in the Taxable Gross weight on your 2290?

Hello there truckers, over this article we are going to discuss on how to go about reporting an increase in the Gross weight of your truck. We on daily basis receive calls from our clients required to file an amended 2290 to correct the mistake occurred on their taxable gross weight of the vehicle. Now refers to this article to get a clear picture on this scenario.

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.

E-File your HVUT Form 2290 via www.truckdues.com to receive the IRS digital watermarked copy of schedule 1 back in your e-mail within minutes after you e-file. Reach us back for any further assistance over the following mediums:

Low Mileage Vehicle Credit or Suspended/Exempt Category? Explained!

Hello there Truckers, doesn’t this question sound familiar to you? Almost on a daily basis, we receive calls as such inquiring about How do I/where do I report my truck that is not used above the desired mileage for exemption? The common misconception that evolves amongst many HVUT e-filers is that both these terms sound similar. However in terms of Form 2290 they are different attributes.

While e-filing your HVUT Form 2290, you might have noticed the section, Suspended/Exempt vehicles this section is basically to report when the heavy vehicle is been used under the desired mileage limit for exemption (5000 miles for Commercial & Logging based Units) & (7500 miles for Agricultural based Units) In this case, you need not make any tax payments to the IRS as they are exempt but you still got to report the vehicle on this Form to legally claim an exemption.

On the other hand, The Term Low mileage vehicle credits sounds to be referring to low mileage or exempt vehicles, but in reality it’s related to Claiming a refund on the Taxes paid full in advance on a low mileage vehicle. Upon realization of the mileage recorded by the end of the tax period for which the tax payment was made full in advance, you claim a full refund back from the IRS during the renewal of the following tax year’s tax return.

Sounds confusing? Well here’s an example: John purchased a commercial utility vehicle in July 2018 and he needs to get his vehicles registered with the state authorities so does he needs to file a Form 2290 report. So he reported the vehicle on the Form 2290 (For the period beginning July 1st, 2018 through June 30th, 2019) and made an upfront tax payment to the IRS. However, due to unforeseen mechanical wear & tear unfortunately the truck was not used quite actively as he expected hence it recorded an overall mileage that is less than/below the actual mileage limit for exemption as (5000 miles)

Now, he’s got to renew his Form 2290 for the upcoming period (For the period beginning July 1st, 2019 through June 30th, 2020. During this time, he’s got a chance to claim a full refund on the tax paid for past tax year on the renewal form so evidently the tax due amount will be nullified on the renewal form. On the other hand, If John does not seem to own any trucks during the next renewal, he can simply claim a full refund (Form of cash) by filing the Form 8849 Schedule 6 ( Claim for refund of excise taxes) and wait until 21 business days to receive a refund check back in his mailing address.
