Though everyone in Trucking Business know the annual renewal of Tax Form 2290 is due in the month of July and August every year, there is a big confusion that prevails in Every Trucking Brain this year. The reason behind this confusion is that, there was a brief delay in IRS accepting the Tax Form 2290‘s last year (2011-2012). This happened because the Congress did not make up their minds till October in passing the Transportation Bill.

Finally the decision was made in the month of October 2011 by the Congress and the Transportation Bill was passed rather it was renewed for one more year. So the IRS took few days to act to the decision made in Washington DC and started accepting the Tax Form 2290’s in the month of November and the deadline was fixed as 30th of November.
