We have come across this question from our truckers almost on daily basis, how do I transfer my 2290 from my old truck to the new? When they say an old truck, technically the vehicle will no longer be in their possession as they might have replaced that vehicle with a new truck due to many reasons likely mechanical wear & tear, electrical system failures & so on.
However the 3 options for which you would be able to claim credits & refunds on. Respectively:
- The Subjected vehicle is sold, hence no longer been under self-possession of an entity/individual for which the taxes were paid full in advance.
- The subjected vehicle is stolen for which the taxes were paid full in advance.
- The Subjected vehicle is totaled out due to mechanical & electrical system failure hence, it is officially declared to be unusable henceforth, for which the taxes were paid full in advance.
When your nature of claim seems to coincide with either one of the above mentioned 3 scenarios, you are eligible to claim credits for the unused months of the vehicle until the expiration of the tax period for which the taxes were paid full in advance.
Yet the answer is simple, Most HVUT tax payers’ gets into a misconception between a Credit & a Refund. A Credit generally involves adjustments whereas a Refund is simply a Getting my Money Back.
To Get a Credit Adjustment: – Use Form 2290:
When you had replaced a vehicle that was sold/destroyed/stolen for which the taxes were paid full in advance, by a new vehicle simply use a Form 2290 to do a credit adjustment. You must report the new vehicle for a pro-rated tax period based on the first used month of the vehicle under Taxable Vehicle section (If might be used over 5000 miles for commercial based units & over 7500 miles for Ag based) and under Suspended vehicle Section (If might be used under 5000 miles for commercial based units & under 7500 miles for Ag based)
To get a Money Back: – Use Form 8849 Schedule 6:
If you intend to get your money back for the unused months of the subjected vehicle, simply use a Form 8849 Schedule 6 to raise a refund request to the Internal Revenue Service. For which the IRS will be mailing a refund check to you in 21 Business Days upon a successful acceptance of your claim.
