Keeping Records for Internal Revenue Service Form 2290


When it comes time to file Heavy Vehicle Use Tax  with the IRS using Form 2290, it is very important that you keep accurate records, the same way that you would when filing any other type of tax return. It is crucial for anyone filing form 2290 to maintain their records for at least the prior 3 years for any taxable highway vehicles registered in their name. For fleet owners, owner operators, and small trucking companies who have filed form 2290 in the past, it is wise to always keep the 2290 records on hand, as one never knows when the IRS inspection may take place. It is even important to save these returns if they are only for a part of a year. In the case of a suspended vehicle (public highway use was less than 5,000 miles/year) it is still necessary to keep records of Form 2290’s filed for them as well.

You will need to gather the following information before filing form 2290 to accelerate the filing process:  
Keeping proper records of your 2290 information will be a great help to you in the unfortunate event of an audit. It will also make the task of filing this form much easier.
