The Form 2290 deadline for the 2022-2023 tax year was August 31st, 2022. Even though the deadline has passed already, you are still able to file your Form 2290 for the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) with ExpressTruckTax. If you have already filed with us, we would like to thank you for filing. 

If you have filed there is a chance that you might have made a mistake or some of the information you have entered might change. If this happens, ExpressTruckTax has the solution for you. You can make updates to Form 2290 using any of the following Form 2290 Amendments: Gross Weight Increase, VIN correction, or  Mileage Exceeded.

Gross Weight Increase

The tax amount owed to the IRS for the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax not only depends on when you put your vehicle on the road for the first time but also what the Taxable Gross Weight of the vehicle in which consists of the weight of the truck, the trailer and the maximum load it can carry. Form 2290 has to be filed for vehicles weighing 55,000 pounds or more. There are several weight classes for these vehicles ranging from 55,000 pounds to 75,000 pounds or more. If a vehicle was filed for a Taxable Gross Weight that is less than what it is supposed to be, filing a Form 2290 Amendment is what you need to do. Once you file the amendment you will need to pay the difference for the tax that you owe. 

VIN Correction

The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is a unique 17-character sequence that identifies each vehicle. You must enter this number on Form 2290 so that the IRS will know it is for that particular vehicle. If you filed your Form 2290 with ExpressTruckTax and have only entered a few wrong characters for your VIN, you are able to file a VIN correction amendment free of charge with ExpressTruckTax.

Mileage Exceeded

If a vehicle weighs 55,000 miles or more but drives less than 5,000 miles a year, or less than 7,500 miles a year if it is used for agricultural purposes, it is considered suspended by the IRS. Form 2290 must still be filled for this vehicle but no tax will be owed. If you file the vehicle as suspended but the vehicle ends up exceeding the mileage limit, a mileage exceeded amendment must be filed and then you must pay the tax that is owed to the IRS which will be the amount due for the entire year.
