Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT), Form 2290 Due Dates Simplified!

When a new vehicle is put into service, HVUT Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the following month. If a vehicle was used during any part of a month, the tax will be calculated for that month as a whole. For example, if a vehicle was used on August 15th, it will be taxed as though it was used the entire month. If you first placed your vehicle on the road anytime in August, you must E-file your Form 2290 anytime between now and September 30th, 2018. Since the last day of the month falls on a weekend the due date is postponed to the next working day that is October 1st 2018.

The tax will be prorated based on the number of months the vehicle will be used during the tax period. So vehicles that were placed in service during the month of August 2018 has to have a HVUT filed for it using the Form 2290 by October 1st 2018, and the tax will be based on 11 months, instead of the full year. For vehicles first used in September, the tax will be based on 10 months and so on.

While the deadline is the last day of the following month, you may need to file your Form 2290 before the deadline in order to get or renew your IRP plates.  Many states require proof that your 2290 was filed before they will issue or renew your plates.
