IRS Schedule 1 Form 2290 is used to pay Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax (let’s call it HVUT for short). Those that need to pay HVUT can do so online through an IRS authorized e-filer. Online filing is mandatory when filing for 25 vehicles or more. Even if you don’t have a lot of vehicles, the IRS still recommends that file online. Make sure you use a secure and authorized online e-filer. The government uses the money received from the taxes to help maintain and improve roads/
Peak season for paying your HVUT starts in July. Taxes can be paid through June of the next year.
Here’s some of the information you’ll need when you file.
-Name and company information
-Vehicle Identification Numbers
-Number of vehicles
-Gross weight of the vehicles
You’ll need more info than that of course, but the form isn’t hard to fill out, especially if you’re using helpful online software that will get you through the process step by step. You can even use the online software to send your payment in.
