|Form 2290: Adding Suspended Vehicles|
If you didn’t realize it on our last post about VIN corrections, we’re big on making the process easier.
Understanding Suspended Vehicles
In order to file a regular-usage vehicle as suspended, its mileage use on public highways must be 5,000 miles or less; and for an agricultural suspended vehicle, the mileage use must be 7,500 miles or less.
Regardless of the number of owners, the mileage use limit refers to the total mileage a vehicle is used during the taxable period.
Like we said, agricultural vehicles have different rules. An agricultural vehicle is any motor vehicle that is used for farming purposes primarily, and registered as a highway motor vehicle by state law, and is used for farming purposes for the entire period. A farming vehicle has a special tag or license plate that identifies its agricultural status.
While you have to claim a suspended vehicle like you would any tax filing, it’s still a different process.
So what are the steps? They are as follows:
- Just like in your standard filing, you select your First Used Month & Year right away.
- After that, if you were filing your typical 2290, you would enter or import your Taxable Vehicles. If you are still filing your 2290, go ahead and do this.
- At the next step, you simply add your Suspended Vehicles like you did with your taxable vehicles.
- On the next few steps, you’re able to view your information and edit it if necessary.
Finish everything up like you would with your normal HVUT 2290 filing!
