Why do we go for a 2290 Amendment?

Hey truckers it’s once again time for a few pointers and transfer of knowledge about your HVUT Form 2290 filings. The filing season was a hectic one, wasn’t it? Since you are done with filing the returns hope you checked your schedule-1 copies for any mistakes. Any mismatch in the information would end up as a void filing. The recent question which we faced was about “2290 AMENDMENTS”. In this blog, we are going to see when to file an amendment and how to and when not to.

An Amendment is bringing about a change or correction to an existing return. People often confuse between VIN correction and an amendment. The VIN correction needs to be done on a separate filing and this doesn’t relate to anything with the Amendments.

Amendments are basically for reporting two things

Your Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 deadline is just a couple of weeks away!

Hey there truckers, No wonder misconception might arise within yourself due to our repeated HVUT deadline alerts. We are not trying to mock you with repeated deadline alerts. Federal law states that HVUT Form 2290 must be filed on a Vehicle by the last day of the month following the month of its first use.

Hence, this article about the HVUT deadline must concern you only if you had purchased/re-purchased any truck and that’s being used over the road since Sep 2019, whereby you are required to E-File & pay the HVUT to the IRS on or before 10/31/2019.

Failure to E-file the Form 2290 before the deadline might end up in owing the IRS a penalty for late in filing & payment. This penalties might fluctuate between 3 to 5% of the overall tax due owed on your vehicle and the worst part is the interest will accumulate on daily basis as long as you prolong the lateness beyond the desired deadline assuming it as an extension. In the first place we would like to make our dear truckers aware that there has been no extensions for Form 2290.

There are no complex calculations involved as our application bears that part on your behalf as it has an inbuilt tax calculator for your convenience.

We request the trucking community to feel free while contacting our Tax expert support @ (347) 515-2290 during your HVUT Form 2290 filing needs.

Your Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 deadline is just a fortnight away!

Truckers, the Pro-rated Heavy highway vehicle used tax return is now due by 09/30/2019 for vehicles first used since August 2019. This deadline is drafted based on the Federal law that states that the Form 2290 must be e-filed on a vehicle by the last day of the month following the month of its first use. On that basis, the HVUT Form 2290 is now due by 09/30 for vehicles first used since Aug 2019.

The Heavy Highway vehicle used tax return is basically paid on Heavy vehicles with a taxable gross weight of 55000 lbs or more and if the same is been used over the public highways for commercial, Agricultural & Logging purposes.

If the said vehicle is expected to be operated over 5000 miles for Commercial based units and over 7500 miles for Agricultural based units then tax due is required to be paid on these trucks upfront for the upcoming 12 months. On the other hand, if the vehicle seems to be used under the mileage limit then the truck turns out to be exempt and no taxes are required to be paid on such vehicles.

The Annual HVUT Form 2290 is basically due by June and its payable until the end of August, for the current year the HVUT Form 2290 for the period beginning July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020 was due since June 2019 and the actual deadline was extended up until Sept. 3, 2019. We realize that most of the truckers might have missed on the deadline due to busy on road schedule. For those, we want you to know that now it’s not too late to renew your Form 2290 to avoid maximum penalties from the IRS.

Wondering how to claim a refund on your HVUT Form 2290? Here’s how!

Hello there Truckers, the HVUT Form 2290 is an annual tax paid to the Internal Revenue Service every year on vehicle which comprises a minimum gross weight of 55000 lbs or more and if the same truck is been used over the public highways for commercial, agricultural & logging purposes.

If the respected vehicle is used over the desired mileage limit for exemption as in 5000 miles for Commercial & Logging based units & 7500 miles for Agricultural based units then the vehicle turns out to be taxable vehicle and the tax due payment needs to be paid to the Internal Revenue Service full in advance.  

On the other hand, if the subjected vehicle seems to be used under 5000 miles for Commercial & Logging based units & 7500 miles for Agricultural based units then the vehicles are considered to be Suspended/Exempt vehicle where the tax due is not imposed on such vehicles, however these vehicles needs to be reported on the Form 2290 in order to claim an exemption from the IRS.

Now there are few claims that are supported in accordance to the Form 2290.

  1. Taxes over paid credits.
  2. Suspended vehicle Exceeds Mileage.
  3. Low Mileage Vehicle Credits.

Claims against Tax over payment:  When the taxes are paid for a respective vehicle more than once within the same tax year, then the excess paid amount can be claimed as a refund by filing the Claim Form 8849 Schedule 6 as a result you will receive a refund check back from the IRS in 21 business days in your mailing address.

When the vehicle is Sold/Destroyed/Stolen:  When the taxes are paid full in advance on a respective vehicle and if the subjected vehicle is Sold/Destroyed/Stolen a partial refund can be claimed via the Form 8849 Schedule 6.

Low Mileage vehicle credit:  When the taxes are paid full in advance on a vehicle assuming it would go over 5000 miles or 7500 miles but if the truck remains under the mileage limit for exemption during the year, the IRS lets you claim a full refund by the following tax year.
