How do I file taxes:

First, you need to classify your vehicle based upon the category mentioned in the tabular column. If you are filing prorated taxes for your vehicle, then you need to calculate for the months your filing. Say, if April you took your vehicle on the highway for the first time, this May 31st is the last date to file your return depending upon the taxable weight. If your vehicle used only for logging and other forestry purpose, the tax rate would differ.

Now the question is which is easiest method to file your HVUT? Well, there are two major methods to file form 2290. One is the traditional method, paper filing. This consumes lot of time and energy, involving calculations to be done by t things are supposed to be done manually. It also provides you room with errors. If one error is found in your form, IRS would reject your return. So when you are opting for paper filing, ensure you are too good at math.
