File by this date regardless of when state registration for the vehicle is due.

For registration purposes the Form 2290 tax must be paid in the name of the owner of the truck or the registrant of the vehicle. You cannot use third party copies of taxes paid. This allows you to transfer the tax to a new vehicle if your vehicle is destroyed or sold. For a vehicle sold, destroyed or stolen before June 1st, a credit for tax paid can be claimed on the next Form 2290 or a refund of the tax paid can be claimed on Form 8849.
