The Stamped Schedule 1: How to Retrieve It- Anywhere!

With the end of the year approaching fast, we’re entering the season for registration renewals. One of the documents you’ll need is the stamped Schedule 1. Do you know where yours is?

Your stamped Schedule 1 is the golden ticket to maintaining your authority. Your entire livelihood rests on a single, fragile, highly flammable & oh-so-easy to lose piece of paper–no pressure, right?!


Not if you use ExpressTruckTax. Whether you misplaced your precious paper or have no idea what it is in the first place, I’m about the break it down for you.

What Is the Stamped Schedule 1?

The stamped Schedule 1 serves as proof that you filed and paid your annual heavy vehicle use tax. The watermark, a faint symbol in the middle of the page, indicates that the return was submitted to & accepted by the IRS. If that watermark is missing, the Schedule 1 is not valid.

Why Do I Need It?

It’s always a good idea to have your current Schedule 1 handy. Just keep a copy in your glove box. For instance, Canadian truckers crossing the border into the USA are required to present their current stamped Schedule 1 before they’re allowed to enter.

The Schedule 1 is also needed for obtaining tags & registrations. When renewing your yearly IFTA license, IRP registration, etc, the current year’s stamped Schedule 1 is one of the supporting documents required for renewal.
