Temporary regulations for Internal Revenue Service Form 2290

Waiting for the IRS to release the Form 2290 for HVUT for the new tax year will likely take quite a while. According to a Federal Register notice set to be published on Wednesday, July 20th, implementing new regulations states that taxpayers filing Form 2290 should not file before November 1, 2011. In addition to that, the IRS will not be releasing receipted Schedule 1 forms prior to Nov. 1st. The current HVUT system is currently up in the air. Without a law passed from Congress, the tax will expire by Sept. 30, 2011.

Under current regulations, a tax is in place for the period between July 1, 2011, through Sept. 30, 2011. If Congress remains inactive on the matter, taxpayers will merely be liable for that taxable period and would have to file by Nov. 30.

In the Federal Register, the IRS does state that if Congress extends the tax past Sept. 30, anyone who filed for the “short taxable period” would also be required to file a second Form 2290 for the rest of the 2011-2012 tax season.

Amid all of this confusion and what seems to be a chaotic situation for many in the Trucking Industry, you can take comfort that you will be able to Electronically file any HVUT taxes imposed by the IRS with our service. Although we do not know what that will entail right now, we will be able to adjust our product to the changing requirements by the IRS (if needed).
