Getting Started!

2.    The vehicle identification number of each vehicle.

3.    The taxable gross weight of each vehicle to determine its category.

When To File?
Form 2290 must be filed for each month a taxable vehicle is first used on public highways during the current period. The current period begins July 1, 2010, and ends June 30, 2011. Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the month following the month of first use. The filing rules apply whether you are paying the tax or reporting suspension of the tax. The following examples demonstrate these rules.

Example. John uses a taxable vehicle on July 1, 2010. John must file Form 2290 by August 31, 2010, for the period beginning July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2011. To figure the tax, John would use the amounts on Form 2290, page 2, column (1).

Example, continued. John purchases a new taxable vehicle on January 3, 2011. The vehicle is required to be registered in his name. The vehicle is first used in January. John must file another Form 2290 reporting the new vehicle by February 28, 2011, for the period beginning July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2011.

Note: If any due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, file by the next business day.

Extension of time to file: Before the due date of the return, you may request an extension of time to file your return by writing to the Department of the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service, Cincinnati, OH 45999-0031. In your letter, you must fully explain the cause of the delay. Except for taxpayers abroad, the extension may be for no more than 6 months. An extension of time to file does not extend the time to pay the tax. If you want an extension of time to pay, you must request that separately.

Penalties and Interest
The law provides penalties for failing to file returns or pay taxes when due. There are also penalties for filing false or fraudulent returns. These penalties are in addition to the interest charge on late payments. The penalty for filing a return late or paying the tax late will not be imposed if you can show reasonable cause for not filing (or paying) on time.
