Truckers, be reminded that if you have registered or is required to register a heavy highway motor vehicle with a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more at the time of first use on any public highway during the reporting period, you are required to file Form 2290, Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return.
Form 2290 should be filled for any taxable vehicles first used on a public highway during or after July 2021 by the last day of the month following the month of first use. This means that for vehicles first use on a public highway in July, Form 2290 must be filled between July 1 and August 31.
Taxes for the current filing season will be prorated for any vehicle that was first used on a public highway after July.
Every registrant must complete the first and second pages of Form 2290 along with both pages of Schedule 1.
You will only need to complete the “Consent to Disclosure of Tax Information” and “Form 2290-V, Payment Voucher” pages when applicable.
It is worthwhile to note that the filing deadline for truckers is not tied to the vehicle registration date.
Regardless of the vehicle’s registration renewal date, the taxpaying trucker must file Form 2290 by the last day of the month following the month in which the taxpayer first used the vehicle on a public highway during the taxable period.
