New 2013-2014 Form 2290 Tax Year Is One Week Away

The new Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) year begins July 1, 2013 and runs through June 30, 2014.  The Form 2290 filing deadline for all taxable vehicles for the new tax year is August 31, 2013.  All tax must be paid in full by the deadline to avoid penalties.

The tax is based on the gross vehicle weight and ranges from $100 to $550 per year per vehicle.  For vehicles first used during any other month than July during the tax period, the tax is prorated and due by the last day of the month following the month first used.  For example, if a vehicle will be first used in December, the Form 2290 would have to be filed by January 31, 2013.  There is no tax due for any vehicle used than 5,000 (7,500 agricultural) miles during a tax period.  The Form 2290 return would still need to be filed, but the vehicle would be classified as a suspended vehicle, so no tax would be due.  There are other circumstances where a vehicle is classified as suspended, but ExpressTruckTax enables you to identify those vehicles.

States require a stamped Schedule 1 as proof of payment for the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax in order to register the vehicle.  With ExpressTruckTax you will receive your stamped Schedule 1 within minutes, so you no longer have to wait to register or renew your vehicles.
