Independence Day, the day when United States of America was declared free and an independent nation. The citizens of America regards this day as the birthday of USA. Some Americans simply call it the “Fourth Of July” on which date it always falls.

The holiday recalls the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.

The answers we usually give our customers in return to their Form 2290 related queries are so good that they don’t come back with another question pertaining to the same.

Q: A vehicle was filed as a suspended vehicle last year and was transferred / sold to someone, which was eligible for suspension at the time of the transfer. Should that be reported in this year’s form 2290?

It should also have the person’s name it was transferred to and the date it was sold/transferred. Continue reading
