IRS Update on Form 2290(HVUT) for tax year 2011-12

IRS update for The Highway Motor Truck Taxpayers [IRS Form 2290] for the new tax year 2011-12.

Updated as of June 13, 2011:

The law that governs the annual tax imposed on the use of heavy highway vehicles (Form 2290) expires at the close of September 30, 2011. IRS have not published Form 2290 for the taxable period beginning July 1, 2011 and the form is not available at this time. As soon as we know when the form will be available, we will provide that information on this page. In the meantime, you can still get your tags and register your new or used vehicle.

Getting Your Tags and/or Registering Your Vehicle

You can get your tags for the tax period beginning July 1, 2011. Existing regulations allow states to register a heavy highway vehicle when the application for registration is received during the months of July, August or September 2011. If you have your receipted Schedule 1 for the previous year’s taxable period, in this case, July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011, states can accept it as proof of payment for Form 2290.

Registering Your Newly Acquired Vehicle

States must register newly acquired heavy highway use vehicles without proof of tax payment if you present the original or a photocopy of a bill of sale showing that the vehicle was purchased by the owner during the 60 days before the date the state receives the application for registration.
