Types of Vehicles:

Taxable Vehicles:

The very first and foremost type of vehicle filed through form 2290 is taxable vehicles. These vehicles are categorized as taxable based on the weight of the truck or the taxable gross weight of the truck & the mileage for the taxation season. The main reason for collecting the funds is to moderate and maintain the highways as these heavy vehicles cause most of the damage.

Suspended Vehicles:

The next set of vehicles file form 2290 is suspended vehicles. These vehicles do not cross the minimum mileage i.e. 5,000 miles and 7,500 miles for agricultural purpose and thus, they’re not required to pay dues, however, they need to keep IRS informed about their suspension through form 2290.

The Vehicles That Are Included In This Category Are:

  • Commercial vehicles with average mileage less than 5,000 and 7,500 miles for agricultural used vehicles
  • Mobile machinery for non-transportation function, non-transportation trailers and semi-trailers
  • Qualified as official blood collectors by blood banks and organizations

However, do note, annual miles exceeding more than 5,000 and 7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles are calculated as taxable miles. You need to file Form 2290 Amendments to pay your dues and receive revised schedule 1 copy.

Exempted vehicles:

After taxable and suspended vehicles, exempted vehicles are the operated and maintained by the government itself and that is why they don’t have to pay any dues to IRS, however, they need to report form 2290 for their vehicle.

The following are the vehicles included in the list:

  • The Federal Government,
  •  The American National Red Cross,
  •  The District of Columbia,
  •  A nonprofit volunteer fire department, ambulance association, or rescue squad,
  •  A state or local government,
  • Indian tribal governments (To carry out essential tribal government functions)
  • Mass transportation authority’s (under certain conditions)

Also, include these vehicles in the list:

  • Qualified blood collector vehicles used by qualified blood collector organizations, and
  • Mobile machinery that don’t come under the category of heavy vehicle.

Logging Vehicles:

These vehicles are exclusively used for the conduct of logging operations.

A Logging Vehicle Is Qualified On the Following Basis:

  • Exclusively used for transporting harvested products from the forested site, or for transporting products harvested from the forested site to and from locations on a forested site (public highways may be used between the forested site locations), and
  • The vehicle is registered as highway motor vehicle and used exclusively in the transportation of harvested forest products. In addition, no special tags are required.

Agricultural Vehicles:

Agricultural vehicles are involved in harvesting and transporting agricultural goods, and the maximum mileage is 7,500 miles annually.
