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.
