Kentucky cracks down on Form 2290 HVUT evasion
Kentucky truckers! It’s now more important than ever to make sure you have filed Form 2290 for 2020-21!
According to a recent press release, the Governor of Kentucky has put almost $400,000 towards Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) compliance.
What’s the plan for enforcement?
This move is aimed to make sure every commercial motor vehicle owner is paying their fair share of road maintenance taxes. Some of the $400,000 in funds will go towards making it easier for authorities to verify truckers HVUT statuses, while the rest will go towards new equipment and training to make enforcement possible.
Apparently, authorities plan to employ enforcement blitzes at weigh stations and along bypass routes to check for HVUT compliance.
What do I need to do?
If you have already filed your Form 2290 for 2020-21, make sure you have a paper copy of your stamped Schedule 1 in the cab of your truck. That way you can prove that you have paid your taxes. And it’s probably not a bad idea to have Schedule 1s from the past several years as well.
