It’s “2290 time” in the trucking world.
For trucks and other taxable vehicles in use during July, the Form 2290 and payment are due by Aug. 31. State governments are required to receive proof of payment of the federal heavy vehicle use tax as a condition of vehicle registration.
The IRS is no longer mailing out reminders for the 2290.
The tax year begins on July 1, and ends on June 30. The balance due shown on the Form 2290 must be paid in full by the due date of the return. In most cases, the deadline for filing the return and paying any tax due is Aug. 31.
The tax is based on weight and normally ranges from $100 to $550 per vehicle. A variety of special rules, discussed in the instructions for Form 2290, apply to vehicles with minimal road use; logging or agricultural vehicles; vehicles transferred during the year; and those first used on the road after July.
Although you can make this payment yourself, the Business Services staff at the OOIDA provides a service for OOIDA members to help them get the tax paid.
