Unlike many other tax return deadlines, the deadline on the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290 has not been extended. Every truck driver who travels in and around America will need to file new returns before the actual due date of August 31st. During recent months due to the sudden surge of filings taking place, the IRS has also issued certain guidelines to make this process less cumbersome.
The following are a few key points issued by the IRS for Form 2290.
In an era when smartphones
and tablets have taken over, filing tax returns through paper is slowly going
extinct and completing tax returns online is the need of the hour as it is
easier, precise and efficient. The less complicated your tax return is, the
more rudimentary is the preparation for it.
The slight panicky feeling that happens when deadlines approach and start to accumulate is every tax payer’s worst nightmare. These tax deadlines happen once every year or every quarter and failure to address them results in penalties and interest from Uncle Sam.
It’s time now to put on your
thinking hat and have these tax returns completed in order to stay compliant
with the IRS. A Few Tax forms that are Due this month would namely be:-
Form 2290: The Federal
Excise Tax Form 2290 also known as Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) is due for renewal
for the current 2020 tax year. And the deadline to report any new Vehicles first
used in the month of June is due by July31st.
IFTA: International Fuel Tax Agreement is due by July 31st for the second quarter of 2020.
Form 720 is filed by businesses that deal with the sale of certain goods and services. These businesses are required to pay extra taxes, known as “Excise Taxes”. This Federal excise tax has four quarters for a calendar year and the deadline for each quarter is last day of the following month i.e, by April 30 for the first quarter, by July 31 for the second quarter, by October 31 for the third quarter and by January 31 for the final quarter. The first quarter of 2020 (for the months Jan, Feb and Mar) is due by April 30. And Even if you are not liable for excise taxes during any of the quarters of the year, you must send in Form 720 according to the due dates.
Due to the ongoing situation many businesses and essential services are closed and do not have any Excise tax to report. Though they have no sale to report they will still need to file out a Form 720 by reporting a Zero Return (Zero Tax Liability).
A zero return substantially means that no sale or
business operations were conducted during that quarter. And Having Form 720
completed essentially allows the business to stay compliant with the existing
norms and guidelines listed by the IRS.
