Missing this deadline will result in additional charges that will keep incurring until the Form 2290 is filed and the HVUT payment is made.
What Penalties Will Be Charged?
If you miss the deadline for Form 2290, you will be subjected to additional penalties that can make the tax payment even more substantial.
If the Form 2290 is not filed in time, a penalty equal to 4.5% of the total tax amount will be incurred on top of what you would have owed. Plus, for each additional month, you are late, you will incur another .5% in interest.
If you don’t file your Form 2290, you also won’t be sent your new stamped Schedule 1. With last year’s Schedule 1 expired, you will not have proof of filing. This will be an issue when going to renew titles and licenses for your vehicle
This may also result in your vehicle being grounded, and no one wants that!
