What Truckers Should Know About Form 2290 Amendments?

Learn all about Form 2290 amendments and why it's important to file them!

For most of our truckers, the time for filing your Form 2290 is over and done with.

But now that you’ve finished and submitted your Form 2290, you may have realized you made a mistake or need to update some information on it.

Don’t Worry! Filing a Form 2290 amendment is a simple and easy process, especially with ExpressTruckTax!

What Amendments Can I File For?

With ExpressTruckTax, you file amendments for VIN Corrections, Gross Weight Increase, and Mileage Exceeds. 

VIN Correction: A VIN correction amendment will fix the Vehicle Identification Number that is on the stamped schedule 1 if it was incorrect. This number is 17 digits long, so it’s understandable if you get a few digits mixed up! Once you realize that you made a mistake with the VIN, you need to file right away in order to validate the stamped schedule 1 for your vehicle!

Gross Weight Increase: If you filed for a specific weight category on your Form 2290, but you end up falling into a different category during the tax year, you will need to file an amendment to report this increase in weight. There is no deadline to file the amendment but, once you enter a different weight category, you will need to file the amendment and pay the HVUT difference.

Suspended Vehicle That Exceeds Mileage: If you filed a Form 2290 for a suspended vehicle, but that vehicle exceeded the mileage use limit, then you will need to file an amendment for it. The mileage limit for suspended vehicles on public highways is 5,000 miles (7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles). You will need to file this amendment as soon as you exceed the mileage limitation.
