Pro-rated FORM 2290 is Due Today for Vehicles First used in January 2021!

Taxes aren’t everyone’s favorite part of life, but if we take care of them before the deadlines, we can eliminate the stress. Recently filing tax forms and paying tax fees has been a stressful task due to the pandemic, but there is more to it, the “HVUT”. The Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) is an annual charge imposed on heavy vehicles with recorded gross weights of 55,000 pounds or more that travel on public highways. The weight of the truck, trailer, and load are added together to calculate the total taxable weight of a vehicle.

Heavy Vehicle Use Taxes must be filed on an annual basis using Form 2290. The Heavy Vehicles Tax Cycle starts in July and the filing deadline is August 31st for each cycle. But this is not the same for the new vehicles first put into service mid-tax year. For instance, March 1st, 2021, Today, is the due date to file Form 2290 for any new vehicle or vehicle first used in the Month of January.

The Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 is now due today, March 1st, 2021 for the vehicles first used since January 2021.
