It’s just a couple of weeks before your Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 expires!

Hello there truckers, the Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 is now due by 12/31/2019 for vehicles first used since November 2019. This deadline is been drafted by the IRS federal law that indicates that Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the month following the month of its first use.

You may even think if this deadline has anything to do about the regular Annual renewals which are basically due by June & payable until August. But, it does not. This deadline is only concerned about vehicles that are into service since November 2019.

The Heavy highway vehicle is basically paid on trucks with a minimum taxable gross weight of 55000 lbs and it’s paid for vehicles that are used over the public highways for commercial, agricultural & logging purposes. The desired mileage limit for exemption is drafted upon these vehicles based on the nature of its use.

For commercial based units & logging vehicles the desired mileage limit of exemption is said to be 5000 miles each and for Agricultural based vehicles, it is said to be 7500 miles. Only when to seem to exceed the respective mileage based on your vehicle’s desired purpose of use you need to make the tax payment to the IRS full in advance for the period it needs to be reported.

Failure to pay the tax dues on time results in incurrence of penalties & interests on top of the requisite tax due owed anywhere ranging from 2.5% to 4.5% of the total tax due amount to be paid granting no further extensions whatsoever. E-filing 2290 has been made easy with www.truckdues.com where quality service is been offered at a much affordable price as e-filing begins here as low as $7.99 our help-desk is just at a phone call away.

How to Claim Refund on Form 2290 Tax Dues Paid Upfront!

Paid the taxes in full for the previous tax year but you vehicle ran less than 5000 miles? You will be eligible to claim a full refund or transfer the credits to the current tax year (If you plan to operate more than 5000 miles)

A claim for refund can be for the following scenarios,

  • Over paid tax due by mistake.
  • Taxable vehicle Sold/ Transferred / Destroyed or Stolen.
  • The vehicle was used within the mileage use limit (5,000 miles or less; 7,500 or less for agricultural vehicles).

In this article we will see especially about Low mileage vehicle credits refund and transfer

Vehicles used within the taxable mileage: The taxable mileage limit for a heavy vehicle is 5,000 miles (7,500 for agricultural). As said before the taxes are paid for the whole year and if your vehicle has run under 5,000 miles (7,500 for agricultural vehicles) you are eligible for low mileage credits. This can be applied only when the entire tax period (July 1 – June 30) is completed. The Vehicle mileage credits is limited only to miles operated on the vehicle regardless to the number of owners.

To get a refund based on low mileage you need to start a new return and select form “8849 schedule-6”. This is a special form dedicated for refund purposes. Then over the next page you need to select Low mileage vehicle credits to declare your vehicle exempt from tax. Over the next page just select “add vehicles” to enter the VIN number, first used month and reason for refund, also you need to attach the copy of the schedule-1 copy for reference. That is all within just 3 steps you can claim a refund on the taxes paid.

To transfer the credits to the current year filing (Only if the truck is assumed to run over 5000 miles) start a new return and select “form 2290”, select the first used month and tax year and over the next page you have to select two boxes which says “taxable vehicle & Low mileage vehicle credits”. The next page is where you can see two rows , the first one would be for entering the truck details on which the taxes needs to be transferred and the second one is to declare the previous year filing under low mileage credits. Then the rest is the same just proceed further with payment. 

By following these steps you can either claim a refund or transfer the credits to the current tax year

For what do we go for an 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 questions 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

  1. When there is an Increase in gross weight (truck, trailer and max load capacity)
  2. When the suspended vehicle exceeds mileage limit (over 5000 miles)

Increase in gross weight: Normally for a vehicle to qualify and to be reported under taxable vehicle criteria the total gross weight of your vehicle should be more than 55,000 lbs. The gross weight includes the weight of the truck, trailer and the maximum load it can haul. Let’s assume If you would have reported the vehicle originally under 55,000 lbs but the vehicle gross weight is actually over 75,000 lbs or if you plan on increasing your vehicles hauling capacity that’s when you do an amendment for the increase in taxable gross weight.

Suspended vehicle exceeds mileage limit: any vehicle which is operated less than 5000 miles (7500 for agricultural) the vehicle would be reported under suspended or exempt from tax category. If you would have filed the returns as a Suspended vehicle and if the miles put on the truck is exceeding 5000 miles that’s when you do an exceed in mileage amendment.

How to file an amendment?

Just start a new return, on the first page you have to select your business name, then select “2290 Amendments” followed by the tax year and first used month

Over the next page you would have two options “Increase in taxable gross weight” and “Suspended vehicle exceeds mileage limit”. Select the appropriate section and select the month to amend.

Over the next page select “create a new amendment” if the original filing was done through a different provider or select “Amend previously filed return” if the original filing was dine through Truckdues.

Over the next page select “Add vehicle “to enter the VIN number, previously reported data and new info into it and proceed further to pay the service fee and submit the form for amendment.

E-File your Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 before this Thanksgiving Holiday!

Truckers, we got to remind you about the upcoming HVUT tax deadline by November 30, 2019 for vehicles first used since October 2018. This deadline has been drafted based on the Federal Law that indicates that the 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 2019. This deadline does not have any impact over 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 your 1040’s the 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 exemption to pay the tax dues full in advance whereas if the truck might under run the said limit to claim a complete exemption from paying taxes to the IRS.
