With the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290 deadline approaching, we decided to break down some of the Form 2290 basics.
First of all, let’s reiterate the 2290 truck tax due date.
The Deadline for Form 2290
The IRS HVUT Form 2290 due date (or) deadline for the 2016-2017 tax year is August 31st, 2016.
When you need to file form 2290 online for 2016-2017, you also need to know your First Used Month.
The First Used Month of Vehicle
The First Used Month is the first month that the vehicle is used in a tax year.
If you have a new vehicle, the first used month is the first month that the vehicle is used in a year.
You need to file your HVUT Form 2290 a month after the first used month. If you bought the truck in February and started using it then, you would need to file your HVUT by the end of March.
In order to understand how to file your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax return Form 2290, you need to comprehend how the HVUT tax year works.
If you have owned your truck for multiple years, July counts as your first used month for subsequent years after the first purchased year.
So when you go to e-file truck tax Form 2290, knowing the little details of your tax filing will make all the difference.
