When is Form 2290 due?

Form 2290 is the IRS Form you use to file your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT). This is annual federal tax on taxable highway vehicles that is based on a vehicle’s gross taxable weight.

You must file IRS Form 2290 and Schedule 1 for the tax if a taxable highway motor vehicle is registered, or required to be registered, in your name under state, District of Columbia, Canadian, or Mexican law at the time of its first use during the tax period and the vehicle has a gross taxable weight of 55,000 pounds or more.

The current tax period is July 1, 2012 – June 30, 2013. Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the month following the month of first use. August 31, 2012 is the deadline to file Form 2290 for all vehicles used in July.

Electronic filing is required for each return reporting 25 or more vehicles, but all taxpayers are encouraged to e-file, using an authorized IRS e-file Provider, such as ExpressTruckTax.com.
