If you missed the Form 2290 deadline, the IRS will place a penalty on your account. You will incur a penalty equal to 4.5% of the total tax amount of the HVUT payment.
This can be a large amount, depending on how much your HVUT payment is. The amount due for the HVUT depends on the gross taxable weight of the vehicle that is being filed.
When Should You File?
If your Form 2290 is late, the IRS already assigned penalties to you, but the sooner you file, the lower the damage.
These hefty penalties will continue to incur for every month that it is late. Even if you cannot make the HVUT payment yet, it is better and cheaper to at least have Form 2290 filed.
If your Form 2290 isn’t filed, you also won’t receive your stamped Schedule 1. Without a valid Schedule 1, you won’t be able to keep certain licenses up to date. This may cause your vehicle to become grounded, and no one wants that.
When you file with ExpresstruckTax, once the Form 2290 is submitted to the IRS, you will be sent your valid stamped Schedule 1.
