What is Form 2290 Due date?

The “Form 2290 deadline” is the key date to file form 2290 and pay heavy vehicle use tax to the IRS. As per the IRS norms, the truck tax period begins July 1st, 2021, and ends June 30th, 2022. Every year, the IRS instructs truckers to file a 2290 Tax Return by August 31st.

If you purchase and register a new vehicle weighing 55,000 pounds or more in the middle of the reporting period, then file the 2290 tax form by the end of the following FUM of the taxable vehicle.

The Truck owners or operators who operate business or trade need to file Form 2290 if they have heavy vehicles weighing 55,000 pounds or more and use US national roads for 5,000 miles for business or trade.

First Use Month of 2290 Heavy Taxable Vehicle

According to the IRS 2290 Instructions, the first use month for the vehicle is the month in which the vehicle is driven on public highways for the first time.
Example: If you purchase a heavy highway vehicle with a taxable gross weight of 65,000 pounds in October and start using it, October is treated as the first use month of the vehicle, as the vehicle owner uses his/her heavy vehicle from a dealer’s shop to his home using public highways.

What happens if you don’t file before the Form 2290 due date?

Truckers who fail to file the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax by the 2290 deadline may be subjected to penalties along with interest. In some cases, the heavy vehicle is suspended from on-highway transportation. Hence, late filing of the 2290 Highway Vehicle Use Tax results in paying extra dollars rather than what we owe to the IRS.
