Form 2290 Phone Filing

IRS Form 2290 is the form used to file Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) for taxable vehicles.

What is a Taxable Vehicle?
A vehicle is considered to be a taxable vehicle if it was operating on public roads between the tax periods of July through June and if it has a taxable gross weight of at least 55,000 pounds and travels at least 5,000 miles during the tax period (7,500 miles if used for agriculture).

When Do I File Form 2290?
Heavy Vehicle Use Taxes must be filed using the Form 2290 on an annual basis. The Tax period for Heavy Vehicles begins on July 1st and ends on June 30th of the following year. The annual renewal of your Form 2290 for a new tax period IS DUE BY August 31st each year.

For new vehicles placed in service, the IRS Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the month following the month of first use. For example, if you purchase and first use a vehicle in January, you must file a Form 2290 by the end of February.
