Logging vehicles versus Commercial vehicles

Do you have a doubt whether your vehicle is a logging vehicle or a commercial vehicle? And do you want to know what would be the tax difference? Well this blog is especially for those who have doubts on these areas. The most common mistake that the filers commit while filing the Form 2290’s are in this area. First let’s see what the difference between these two is.

Commercial vehicles are trucks that are used to haul any type of goods except forest related products e.g. Hauling timber and Logging vehicles are those trucks extensively used to haul only forest related goods. The criteria for both these types are the same except for the goods that they carry.

The vehicle mileage limit would be the same i.e. 5000 miles for taxable category vehicles and the taxes would be based on the gross weight of the vehicle (weight of truck + trailer + max load it can carry) and for every 1000 lbs increase in weight starting from 55,000 lbs there would be an increase in tax amount payable.

For a commercial vehicle with a gross weight of over 75,000 lbs would be $550 for a whole tax year and for a logging vehicle the total tax amount would be $412.50. The taxes for the Logging vehicle would be lesser than a commercial vehicle considering the forest based products.

When you file your tax returns, please do make sure that while entering your VIN details the logging vehicle category is checked in case of declaring your truck as logging vehicle and vice versa. So when you declare your vehicle make sure that these are noted, else if any changes need to be made after filing should be done by contacting the IRS directly which would consume your valuable time accordingly

What is a Pro-rated filing and things to know while e-filing.

Have you bought a new truck and puzzled what to do next? Well, you need to get your Form 2290’s first to get your license plates done. The next question that would come up in our mind is when to report it. As per the IRS you get 60 days to report your new vehicle.

Any new vehicle bought can be reported until the last day of the following month from the date of its first use i.e. if you would have bought the vehicle in the month of September and plan to put it on the road then you have time until October the 31stto report the vehicle and pay the taxes.

And the next important question which normally arises in our mind is “Should we pay the taxes for the whole year?” Well not necessarily. You will be reporting the vehicle from the first used month till June 30th of the following year, you will be reporting the vehicle on pro-rated basis and pay the taxes for the remaining months only but not for the whole year.

The common doubt which would arise is whether the vehicle would be taxable or not. Well if you intend to drive over 5,000 miles (7,500 for agricultural vehicle) until June 30th and if your vehicle’s total gross weight including the maximum load it can haul is more than 55,000 lbs you vehicle would be categorized under taxable vehicle else just report the vehicle under suspended (exempt from tax) category.

Failure to E-file the Form 2290 before the deadline might end up in owing the IRS a penalty for late in filing & payment.

Under Whose name must the Form 2290 be Filed?

Truckers, almost on a daily basis we face this question from our HVUT tax payers that on most cases they’d have the vehicles leased on a company who might insist on getting the 2290’s been filed under their business name and many operators are left behind with no options else than facing problems during the vehicle registration purposes due to the absence of an Employer Identification Number.

At times, the chances of overpaying the taxes occurs due to the reason that the owner operator might fluctuate in picking up a new company upon cease of the lease agreement with the present employer due to various reasons.

The Federal law indicates that the owner of the vehicle in accordance to the truck tile is liable to e-file the HVUT Form 2290. Having said that, an EIN is required in the first place before reporting the truck on the Form 2290 electronically. Besides, Usage of an SSN might lead to rejection of your tax return.

Hence, we urge the trucking community to choose the right business name under which the tax return needs to be e-filed to avoid such last moment mishaps. If you still not sure, you may feel free to contact the IRS 2290 e-file help-desk @ (866) 699-4096 before e-filing your HVUT Form 2290.

The Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 is now due by 09/30. E-File soon!

Hello there truckers, this article is to remind you all that your Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 is due by September 30, 2019 for the period beginning August 2019 through June 2020. As you are pretty aware of the fact Form 2290 is generally due by June and its payable until the end of August. Else, federal law states that Form 2290 must be filed on a vehicle by the last day of the month following the month of its first use.

Hence, Form 2290 is now due tomorrow ONLY for the vehicles which were purchased/re-purchased and been used over the road since August 2019 and yet this is the shortest month of the year, evidently it’s hard for us to recollect the pace with which the days during this month literally ran off by far and we face just one more day to E-File and pay the pro-rated HVUT form 2290.

Most HVUT tax payers refuse to report their trucks over a Form 2290 since they primarily use their trucks for agricultural/farm based purposes and they rightly presume that their vehicles are basically exempt from HVUT hence needs not to be reported on a Form 2290. In contrary, the IRS doesn’t think the same way. Any vehicle that possess a minimum combined gross weight of 55000 lbs and if it’s been used between destinations using a public highway is required to be reported on a Form 2290.

Having said that however, tax payments are not collected on farm based units however they need to be reported over a Form 2290 to legally claim its exemption from HVUT and the same is necessarily required during vehicle registration with the state department of Motor Vehicle and its applicable during tags, plates, licenses purchases etc.
