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

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

Be responsible! Just sit back and relax and plan for thanksgiving

Truckers, we got to remind you about the upcoming HVUT tax deadline by November 30, 2020 for vehicles first used since October 2020. This deadline has been drafted based on the Federal Law that indicates that 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 2020. This deadline does not have any impact on 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 the other taxes, 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 an exemption to pay the tax dues full in advance whereas if the truck might underrun the said limit to claim a complete exemption from paying taxes to the IRS.

As we are looking forward to Thanks Giving it is wise enough to file your pro-rated form 2290 right was which could eliminate last-minute rush up and you can relax during the long weekend

Hello there dear truckers! Hope you’re all safe and sound. We are into the last phase of filing your taxes as we just have a week’s time before the deadline for your form 2290. As you know the form 2290’s are due by July and payable until august 31 every year. While most of you have filed your tax returns yet there are many who hasn’t filed yet. We would like to keep you posted about this as we are nearing the deadline and any filings done after august are subjected to penalties from the IRS.

Most of you have a common question asking that why should you renew now as your tag renewals are later this year and aren’t we supposed to do it only then? Well, that’s not how it works. Form 2290’s are always from July 1 to June 30 the following year and the taxes are to be paid upfront for the whole tax year. And how will the taxes be calculated? It depends on miles that you do in a tax year and the total gross weight of your vehicle {tractor + trailer + the max capacity that you can haul}. For a vehicle to qualify under a taxable category it should do more than 5000 miles in a tax year and the minimum gross weight should be 55000 lbs and above.
