Form 2290 Overview

Form 2290, Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return is used to track the vehicles operating in public highways with a gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more. The collected taxes are used for highway construction and maintenance.

If you own a truck & meet the following conditions, then you must file Form 2290 to stay HVUT compliant.

  • Figure & pay the tax due on highway motor vehicles for the tax period with a taxable gross weight of more than 55,000 pounds.
  • Calculate & pay the tax due on a vehicle for which you completed the suspension statement on another Form 2290 if that vehicle later exceeded the mileage use limit during the period.
  • The taxable gross weight of a vehicle increases and the vehicle falls into a new category during the tax period then you must figure and pay the tax due.
  • Claim suspension from the tax when a vehicle is expected to be used 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles) during the period.
  • Claim a credit for tax paid on vehicles that were demolished, stolen, sold, or used 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles).
  • Report acquisition of a used taxable vehicle for which the tax has been suspended.
  • Calculate and pay the tax due on a used taxable vehicle acquired and used during the period.

Note: If the vehicle is specifically used to transport the harvested products from the forest during a certain period or to transport the products to and from within the forest, you get a reduced tax option from the IRS.

Schedule 1 (Form 2290), Schedule of Heavy Highway Vehicles

You need to report the Schedule 1 along with the Form 2290 which can be used for the following purpose:

  • Report all taxable vehicles for which you are reporting tax (including an increase in taxable gross weight) and those that you are reporting tax suspension by category and vehicle identification number (VIN).
  • As proof of payment to register your vehicle in any state.

To receive a copy of the stamped Schedule 1 from the IRS, be sure you have filed Form 2290 properly and paid the tax fully. You need to always keep the Stamped Schedule 1 in your vehicle for which the department of motor vehicle will inspect your vehicles at any time.

For example, If you have filed a single 2290 for 10 vehicles, then it is your responsibility for distributing the stamped schedule 1 for all your truck drivers to keep it on your trucks.
