Tax season is barreling on down the highway, so buckle up, because it’s not stopping. A few IFTA deadlines like the 4th quarter IFTA report deadline have already passed, but more deadlines are on their way. If your first used month for your new vehicle was in January then your HVUT form 2290 is due by February 28th.
But wait, What’s HVUT Form 2290?
The IRS HVUT Form 2290 is for the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax and the form 2290 is what truckers need to fill out if they own a vehicle with a taxable gross weight of 55k pounds or more. Truckers are required to file this form online in order to receive an electronic copy of their stamped Schedule 1.
A Stamped Schedule 1 serves as proof of compliance with the HVUT. It’s used at DMVs so you can renew your tags, renew your registration for IFTA, IRP, or USR, and prove that you paid your taxes, which can be extremely helpful if you’re ever audited.
The money that you pay for this tax goes to the public roads. It’s for construction, to fix, and to maintain public highways that heavy vehicles carrying loads often frequent. Therefore it makes your job a little easier, by providing safe routes with paved roads and safe bridges. Plus, better roads have less wear and tear on your vehicle.
