Be responsible! Just sit back and relax and plan for thanksgiving

Truckers, we got to remind you about the upcoming HVUT tax deadline by November 30, 2020 for vehicles first used since October 2020. This deadline has been drafted based on the Federal Law that indicates that Form 2290 needs to be filed by the last day of the month following the month of its first use.

This deadline is considered to be applicable for vehicles that are purchased/re-purchased or in use since October 2020. This deadline does not have any impact on regular annual renewals done in July & August of every year.

The Heavy Highway vehicle used taxes are generally paid on vehicles with a minimum taxable gross weight of 55000 lbs or more and if the subjected vehicle is used on the public highways for commercial & agricultural purposes.

Unlike the other taxes, Form 2290’s are always been filed and paid upfront for the upcoming period. Hence, one must be sure of the fact if the truck would exceed the desired mileage limit for an exemption to pay the tax dues full in advance whereas if the truck might underrun the said limit to claim a complete exemption from paying taxes to the IRS.
