|Who is required to file Form 2290and pay Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax?
Anyone who registers a heavy highway vehicle in their name with a gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more must file Form 2290 and pay the tax. Typically, owners of vans, pickup trucks, panel trucks and similar trucks are not required to file Form 2290 or pay tax on these smaller trucks. Trucks that are used for 5,000 miles or less (7,500 for farm trucks) are also excluded from this tax.
Who is required to e-file Form 2290?
IRS encourages all 2290 filers to e-file. If you are reporting 25 or more heavy highway vehicles for any taxable period, you are required to e-file Form 2290. You can e-file through www.TaxExcise.com an IRS-approved service provider. Electronic filing improves tax processing and saves you personal resources, including time and postage. In addition, e-file reduces preparation and processing errors. You can e-file your return from your own computer, any time of day or night. Use www.TaxExcise.com/www.Tax2290.com to e-file and your Schedule 1 is available almost immediately after IRS accepts it. No more waiting for it to come in the mail!
Why do I need an Employer Identification Number (EIN) to e-file?
IRS needs to have a system for protecting your privacy and making sure they know the identity of their filers. They use a combination of your EIN and your name as a unique identifier for each taxpayer. On an e-filed return, if a taxpayer’s unique ID doesn’t match their records, e-file rejects the return.
When are my Form 2290 taxes due?
The annual taxable period begins on July 1 of the current year and ends on June 30 of the following year. For vehicles that are in use at the beginning of the tax period, your2290 filing deadline is August 31. Taxes on the full tax period must be filed and paid in advance.The due date for a partial period return depends on the month you first use your vehicle. If you place an additional taxable truck on the road during any month other than July, you are liable for 2290 taxes on it, but only for the months during which it was in service. You must file Form 2290 for these trucks by the last day of the month following the month the vehicle was first used on public highways. You can find out when Forms 2290 are supposed to be filed in the table below, When Your Taxes Are Due.
These due date rules apply whether you are paying the tax or reporting the suspension of tax. It is important to file and pay all your 2290 taxes on time to avoid paying interest and penalties.
When Your Taxes Are Due
If I buy another truck after I have e-filed my 2290 for the current tax period, should I e-file my original 2290 again and simply add the new vehicle to the Schedule 1?
If you are correcting VINs listed on a previously submitted and accepted return, you can e-file Form2290 Amendment for “VIN correction”.
When I submitted my Form 2290 electronically, I received an online duplicate filing error. Why did this happen?
A credit, lower tax, exemption or refund is not allowed for an occasional light or decreased load or a discontinued or changed use of a vehicle.
