Now Is The Time To File Form 2290 For Trucks with a First Used Month of November

File Form 2290 before the IRS e-filing system shuts down for maintenance.

File Form 2290

Are you required to file Form 2290 for your vehicle? If it weighs 55,000 pounds or more, you must file Form 2290 annually to the IRS for the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax. Typically Form 2290 is due August 31st and is filed for the upcoming tax year. If a vehicle is put on the road during the tax year, Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the following month. 

If you put a vehicle of a qualifying weight on the road in November the deadline to file Form 2290 would typically be December 31st. December 31st falls on a Saturday this year and the IRS is closed on Monday, January 2nd in observance of New Year’s so the deadline falls on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2023. It is especially important that you file before then because the IRS e-filing system shuts down for maintenance on December 24th and it does not reopen again until sometime in mid-January. 

If Form 2290 is filed during this shutdown period it will sit on hold until the e-filing system is back up again and by the time it is, your Form 2290 for your vehicle with a First Used Month of November will be considered late. Not only that but you would have to wait until then to get your Stamped Schedule 1 which is obtained by filing Form 2290. The Stamped Schedule 1 is required when you need to obtain the tags or registration of your vehicle.  

In order to avoid late filing fees it is important that you file before the IRS shuts down so that your Form 2290 does not sit on hold unprocessed. Specifically, it is important that you file by Friday, December 23rd, 2022. ExpressTruckTax can help you do exactly that.
