COVID-19 has forced many tax deadlines to be changed. For instance, many jurisdictions have pushed back their IRP renewal and first-quarter IFTA deadlines. Also, the IRS income tax deadline has been changed to July 15, 2020.
So, with so many deadlines being affected by the Coronavirus, has the 2020-2021 HVUT Form 2290 due date been affected yet?
Has the Form 2290 deadline changed for 2020-2021?
In a word, no. You still need to file your 2020-2021 Form 2290 by the typical August 31 deadline.
At this point, there is no reason to expect the HVUT deadline to change, because many states are already beginning the first stages of reopening from Coronavirus shutdowns.
What is Form 2290?
The Form 2290 is used to pay the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) for commercial vehicles that weigh more than 55,000 pounds and which drive more than 5,000 miles per year (7,500 miles for agricultural vehicle).
