There is no option in Form 2290 to extend the Deadline like Form 1040 does!

Hey there truckers, we hope this article reaches you in high spirits. We all know that you stay ever busy on the road serving the nation’s needs on time. However, it is always been our duty to save many hardworking truckers across the nation to face any litigation with the Internal Revenue Service at least with their Heavy Vehicle Used Tax Form 2290.

Unlike your personal income taxes Form 1040 (U.S. Individual Income Tax Return) which is actually due by this month April 17th 2018 can also be extended up until October 2018 (An automatic 6 months extension will apply) by Filing a Form 4868 (Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return). However, as long as the Form 2290 is concerned there is no such extension to deadline as it always stays the same.

Form 2290 is a Federal tax paid to the Internal Revenue Service on any heavy vehicle which comprises a minimum gross weight of 55000 lbs (Tractor+ Trailer+ Maximum Load) & if the subjected vehicle is been used over the public highway for its desired nature of work. In general, this tax is annually due by June and its payable until the end of August.

Federal law states, if any heavy vehicle was purchased within a respective tax period, a Form 2290 is necessarily required to be filed on the vehicle by the last day of the month following the month of its first use. On this basis, Form 2290 is due now by April 30th, 2018 for vehicles first used since March 2018.  E-File your pro-rated HVUT returns before April 30th, 2018 if you had purchased any trucks during March. is rated to be one of the secured & simple websites powered by Thawte & McAfee which means our website can be relied upon this fact with no second thought.
