2290 Filing Deadline For Vehicles First Used in January 2014

If you first placed your vehicle on the road anytime during the month of January, you must file your Form 2290 by February 28, 2014. If a vehicle was used during any part of a month, the tax will be calculated for that month as a whole. For example, if a vehicle was used on January 20th, it will be taxed as though it was used the entire month.  

The tax will be prorated based on the number of months the vehicle will have been used during the tax year. So vehicles that were placed in service during the month of January will need to file HVUT using the Form 2290 by February 28, and the tax will be based on 6 months, instead of the full year.

While the deadline is the last day of the following month, you may need to file your Form 2290 before the deadline in order to get or renew your IRP plates.  Many states require a stamped Schedule 1 as proof that your 2290 was filed before they will issue or renew your plates.
