FAQs For A Gear Up Tax Season 2015-16- Part II

Last week, we had posted one list of the most frequently asked questions under the form 2290. Today, we are going to provide you with another doze of FAQs so that you get all geared up for the tax season 2015-16. Do remember, you will have to renew your vehicle registration irrespective of when you have filed your tax return for the first time used vehicles.

Whether you’ve been scratching your head over the same HVUT questions, or you’re just looking to learn some random facts to freshen your Trivia Game prowess, then this blog is for you! So let’s get started. 

1. Is my HVUT renewal due the same time as my vehicle registration renewal?

Well, the answer is NO. Although you need a current schedule 1 copy to renew your tags, they are not necessarily due at the same time. Every year the HVUT renewal period opens from July 1st and closes by the end of August. It is important to note, all the renewals  must be filed and taxes should be paid during this tax period, regardless of when is your vehicle registration is due.

However, if you wait to file your renewal until you need your tags, you will owe additional late fees on top of the heavy vehicle tax. When filling out your Form 2290 for your renewal, your first-used month is automatically July.

2. My taxable gross weight has increased. Do I need to file a new Form 2290?

No, but you may need to file a Form 2290 Amendment, which can also be easily E-filed through Tax2290.com. When your vehicle gross weight increases to bump your vehicle into a new/higher weight category, then you can E-file a 2290 Amendment and only pay the difference.

4. Can I pay my HVUT with a debit or credit card?

No, the IRS no longer accepts tax payments in the form of a debit or credit card. However, you may pay our E-filing fee with either of the option. We are open for this option but not IRS.

The IRS only accepts payments from Direct Debit (Electronic Funds Withdrawal), EFTPS, or by Check or Money order. When paying by check or money order, be sure to attach a 2290-V payment voucher.
