March 31st would normally be the deadline to file Form 2290 for any vehicle that was first used during the month of February, but since it falls on a Sunday, you have an additional day to get it filed. IRS Form 2290, is the form you use to file your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax or HVUT. this tax is imposed by the federal government in order to help pay for the damage done to our public highways by vehicles that weigh 55,000 or more.
You can pay your Highway Use Tax quickly and easily using ExpressTruckTax.com. All you need is some basic business information, EIN, VIN and Gross Vehicle Weight. You will have the option to choose which form of payment you would like to use to pay your IRS fees and then transmit your information directly to the IRS. Within minutes you will receive your Stamped Schedule 1, which is your receipt or proof that you filed your Form 2290.
Your tax due will be prorated based on the number of months the vehicle will have been used during the tax year. So vehicles that were placed in service during the month of February will need to file HVUT using the Form 2290 by Monday, April 1st, and the tax will be based on 5 months, instead of the full year.
