What is Form 2290?
Drivers of vehicles weighing 55,000 pounds or more are required to file IRS Form 2290 for the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT). Form 2290 is also referred to as Heavy Vehicle Used Tax or HVUT, Truck Tax, and Highway Vehicle Tax. The 2290 Form is due annually between July 1 and August 31.
Why is Form 2290 Important?
When operating a vehicle weighing 55,000 pounds or more, submitting Form 2290 is critical since it ensures that the driver receives a Stamped Schedule 1. This Stamped Schedule 1 is crucial because it is necessary when obtaining vehicle registration and tags. Vehicles operated for 5,000 miles or fewer must file a return but are exempt from paying the tax.
Who Needs a Copy of the Stamped Schedule 1?
The Form 2290 Schedule 1 paid receipt becomes your proof of tax payment for the vehicles listed. This proof of payment is required before you can register vehicles with a state's motor vehicle office.
A driver should carry their Stamped Schedule 1 in their truck in case they are pulled over. It is also critical that the carriers and associations for which drivers drive obtain a copy of the Stamped Schedule 1. These carriers and associations usually request for copies of the Stamped Schedule 1s for their records.
