Hello there dear truckers, the Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 is now due by 04/30/2020 for vehicles first used since March 2020. 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. And COVID-19 playing its role as our fate lies on it the govt is yet to announce any news relating to form 2290. Though we are amidst a global pandemic it is our duty to support our nation through such tax payments and this blog is just a reminder for that.

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 March 2020.

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 the 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.

The HVUT Form is basically an annual tax paid to the Internal Revenue Service on vehicles which comprises a minimum gross weight of 55000 lbs or more and if the same vehicle is used over the public highway for its desired purpose of use.

The IRS has drafted 3 different mileage limits for exemption on vehicles based on its nature of use. Please find the drafted mileage limit of exemption for vehicles as follows:

For commercial based units- 5000 miles

Failure to Transmit your return to the IRS will delay your 2290 Acceptance!

Hey there Truckers, over this article we are going to discuss about the most common error committed by the HVUT tax filers whist e-filing their HVUT Form 2290. This error occurs when the tax filer is not aware about the fact the tax return needs to be transmitted to the IRS post preparation in order for being able to receive the IRS digital watermarked copy of Schedule 1 back in their e-mail.

During the e-filing process, most HVUT payers assume that they have completed the e-filing process right after they make the service fee payment using their credit/debit card. However, at times they forget the final step in submitting the prepared tax return to the Internal Revenue Service.

The HVUT Form 2290 is basically the Heavy Highway vehicle used tax return filed for trucks which comprises a minimum gross weight of 55000 lbs or more and the same truck is been used over the public highways for commercial/agricultural/logging purposes.

If the said vehicle needs to be registered with the state department of motor vehicle, the Form 2290 needs to be filed upfront and the IRS digital watermarked copy of schedule 1 is required during the vehicle registration is concerned. Unless the stamped schedule 1 copy is submitted, the DMV does not support renewals of License plates, tags, stickers and so on.

Claiming a Low Mileage Vehicle Credit- Explained how!

Hello there Truckers, over this article we are going to discuss on How to go about claiming a low mileage vehicle credit for trucks that are used quite inactively over the road. Most truckers are not really sure how to claim a refund on vehicles for which the taxes were paid full in advance during the beginning of the tax period.

The Low Mileage vehicle is basically claimed over trucks which were not used over the desired mileage for exemption during the end of the tax period. Almost on a daily basis, we receive queries from the HVUT tax payers saying that their trucks are not in service due to mechanical wear & tear, engine related issues, due to natural calamities etc.  

Now if such occurrences happen when the Tax Form 2290 was already filed for the subjected vehicle, the owner of the vehicle must refer to the odometer reading to record the number of miles the truck has covered until the period it was reported. If that seems to be exceeding the desired mileage use of Exemption (5000 miles for Commercial based Units & 7500 for Agricultural based units) No further action is required from your end.

On the Contrary, if the subjected vehicles seems not to have exceeded the desired mileage use of Exemption (5000 miles for Commercial based Units & 7500 for Agricultural based units) then you are entitled to claim a full refund on the taxes paid on this vehicle. However, you will only be able to claim this refund after the current tax period officially ceases.
