HVUT(Heavy Vehicle Use Tax 2290) Filing for 2012-2013

Each year, heavy vehicles that operate on public roads must file the Form 2290 as part of HVUT (Heavy Vehicle Use Tax). This is an annual tax that must be filed for the tax year of July 1 until June 30. As of now, the IRS is not yet accepting this form for the tax year of July 2012 - June 2013. Filing for the Form 2290 should begin on July 1st of 2012.

Beware of scams or other disingenuous offers to file the 2290 now or File Early for this coming Tax Year. The IRS is not yet accepting this Form for the new tax year as of yet.

The only scenario in which someone would need to file now would be if their heavy vehicle was first placed in service during the month of April. In that case, the form 2290 would be due by May 31. This is because vehicles that are placed in service during the tax year must file for the portion of the tax year that they were on the road.

We strongly advise our Canadian customers to use this option as EFW may not work for Canadian banks.

Just a reminder, if you choose Direct Debit (EFW) as a payment method, the IRS will not process your return during the weekends, or on federal holidays, but on the next business day.

Review Tax ID Numbers

Review Your Return is a very smart program, it automatically checks for any errors before you transmit your 2290 return to IRS, but it’s always good to double check everything before you hit the ‘Transmit to IRS’ button.
