It is officially 2023, and while the IRS e-filing system is currently closed for maintenance until January 12th, you are still able to file Form 2290 with ExpressTruckTax. If you have already filed Form 2290 back in July, you do not need to file Form 2290 until this coming July.
The Form 2290 tax year goes from July 1st to June 30th of the following year which makes the official deadline to file Form 2290 August 31st. This applies to vehicles weighing over 55,000 pounds that have been on the road either for a year or more or are being put on the road for the first time in July. Form 2290 must be filed for these qualifying vehicles annually for the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT).
If you have had your truck on the road for more than a year or you have been driving since July of 2022 and have not yet filed Form 2290, your form is late and you need to file it as soon as possible. What better New Year’s Resolution to make than to file your Form 2290 and avoid being fined? By filing Form 2290 you will receive your Stamped Schedule 1 which allows you to obtain the registration and tags for your vehicle.
If you put your truck on the road for the first time in December, you have until January 31st to file Form 2290. If you put your truck on the road during a month other than July, the deadline to file your Form 2290 will be the last day of the following month.
In order to make sure your New Year’s Resolution files your Form 2290 on time, ExpressTruckTax makes filing Form 2290 fast and easy. If you file before January 12th, your Form 2290 will be on hold until the IRS e-filing system reopens again. As soon as your form is accepted you will receive your Stamped Schedule 1 and you will have one less thing to worry about for the new year. What are you waiting for?
