Types of Amendments on Form 2290:

  • VIN Correction:

Be cautious not to commit any typographical errors while entering the Vehicle Identification Number. The Vehicle Identification number is a 17 digit alpha-numeric characters assigned to a vehicle by its manufacturer. Based on the recent feedback from many HVUT payers, they seem to find it hard to figure out the difference in the appearance of these following alphabets I, O & Q with numeric 1, 0 & 9 respectively. For your kind information, the IRS online servers do not accept any VIN that contains either one of the 3 characters (I, O & Q).

  • Taxable Gross Weight Increase:

When you report an incorrect weight category of your vehicle on a Form 2290 you still have an option to report a change on the category by Filing a 2290 Amendment. However, via an amendment you’d only be able to report an increase in the gross weight of the vehicle besides decrease to the Gross weight in lbs is not possible.  The HVUT tax due amount is directly proportional to the gross weight of the vehicle. Hence, as long as you increase the gross weight of the vehicle, the more tax due you pay.


  • When a Suspended/Exempt Vehicle Exceeds its desired annual Mileage:

Remember, you are required to include your suspended vehicles on your 2290 Form. A suspended vehicle is a vehicle that is expected to be used for less than 5,000 miles (7,500 for agricultural vehicles) on public highways during the tax period. However, if the vehicle exceeds the desired mileage limit until which it was declared to be exempt by the Internal Revenue Service, An amendment is required to be filed on the vehicle to legally report the change of category (From an Exempt vehicle to a Taxable vehicle) and the taxes must be paid in full for the respective tax period.
