Types of Form 2290 Amendments. 

IRS requires all truckers to estimate and pay Form 2290 tax returns for the entire tax season in advance. So, they allow the truckers to file for Form 2290 amendments if they face any changes in their already filed tax category. Truckers and trucking taxpayers can report for Form 2290 Amendments under the following IRS-approved categories,

  1. Increase in Taxable Gross Weight.
  2. Suspended Vehicles Exceeding the Mileage Use Limit.

Increase in Taxable Gross Weight. 

IRS charges Form 2290 truck taxes based on the heavy vehicle’s taxable gross weight. HVUT charges vary from truck to truck based on its gross weight. So, truckers must identify the weight category in which their heavy vehicle belongs in IRS Form 2290 and report the taxes accordingly. If they face any changes in the vehicle’s taxable gross weight during the ongoing tax period, they must report for Form 2290 amendment and file the taxes under the new weight category to get the revised IRS Schedule 1 copy. The last date to report Form 2290 amendments is the end of the following month of the first month the change occurred.

Exceeding Mileage Use Limit. 

Truckers can operate their heavy vehicles on public highways without paying Form 2290 tax for 5,000 miles (7500 miles for agricultural vehicles). It will become taxable only after exceeding the mileage limit. Until then, it is considered tax-suspended; Truckers must report Form 2290 for these types of vehicles as tax-suspended vehicles and get the Schedule 1 copy. Hence, when a suspended vehicle exceeds the mileage use limit, truckers must report for Form 2290 amendment under this category, choose the appropriate weight category, pay the tax amount, and get the revised Schedule 1 copy.

Please note that you should not operate your heavy highway vehicle without reporting an amendment with an improper Schedule 1 copy. You will run into problems with concerned authorities and will be subjected to IRS actions, which may lead to suspension of your vehicle’s license to operate.
