So filers, how are you doing? Hope everything is on smooth grounds. Last week we had spoke about the security levels we maintain at TruckDues.com. However, today we are going to talk about the vehicles filed through form 2290. Yes, this application supports varied type of vehicles that need to be filed on or before the taxation season due date.
With no further delay, we are going to hit the discussion right away. Keep following:
Types of Vehicles:
The very first and foremost type of vehicle filed through form 2290 is taxable vehicles. These vehicles are categorized as taxable based on the weight of the truck or the taxable gross weight of the truck & the mileage for the taxation season. The main reason for collecting the funds is to moderate and maintain the highways as these heavy vehicles cause most of the damage. Also, taxpayers and owner operators who own more than 25 vehicles should efile with an authentic efiling service provider like TruckDues.com. And if you miss to file form 2290 on or before the due date, you are liable to pay penalties online, which might be heavy on your pockets
The next set of vehicles file form 2290 is suspended vehicles. These vehicles do not cross the minimum mileage i.e. 5,000 miles and 7,500 miles for agricultural purpose and thus, they’re not required to pay dues, however, they need to keep IRS informed about their suspension through form 2290.
The Vehicles That Are Included In This Category Are:
- Commercial vehicles with average mileage less than 5,000 and 7,500 miles for agricultural used vehicles
- Mobile machinery for non-transportation function, non-transportation trailers and semi-trailers
- Qualified as official blood collectors by blood banks and organizations
However, do note, annual miles exceeding more than 5,000 and 7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles are calculated as taxable miles. You need to file Form 2290 Amendments to pay your dues and receive revised schedule 1 copy.
After taxable and suspended vehicles, exempted vehicles are the operated and maintained by the government itself and that is why they don’t have to pay any dues to IRS, however, they need to report form 2290 for their vehicle.
The following are the vehicles included in the list:
- The Federal Government,
- The American National Red Cross,
- The District of Columbia,
- A nonprofit volunteer fire department, ambulance association, or rescue squad,
- A state or local government,
- Indian tribal governments (To carry out essential tribal government functions)
- Mass transportation authority’s (under certain conditions)
Also, include these vehicles in the list:
- Qualified blood collector vehicles used by qualified blood collector organizations, and
- Mobile machinery that don’t come under the category of heavy vehicle.
These vehicles are exclusively used for the conduct of logging operations.
A Logging Vehicle Is Qualified On the Following Basis:
- Exclusively used for transporting harvested products from the forested site, or for transporting products harvested from the forested site to and from locations on a forested site (public highways may be used between the forested site locations), and
- The vehicle is registered as highway motor vehicle and used exclusively in the transportation of harvested forest products. In addition, no special tags are required.
Agricultural vehicles are involved in harvesting and transporting agricultural goods, and the maximum mileage is 7,500 miles annually.
The vehicles that fall under this category are:
- Primarily used for farming purpose.
- Registered under the highway motor vehicle but they are exclusively used for farming and agricultural purpose. In addition, there are no special tags to differentiate the vehicle.
