Form 2290 Penalties You Need to Know About

Trucker avoiding penalties by using TSNA for HVUT form 2290
Your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) IRS Form 2290 is due this month! This means you are officially running out of time to file by the August 31st deadline. If you fail to file and/or pay your owed HVUT tax amount, you will wind up with severe IRS penalties and interest.

However, don’t hit the panic button quite yet– TSNAmerica is here to help you file over the phone and receive your stamped Schedule 1 in minutes.

Form 2290 Filing Penalties You Can Expect

If you fail to file your IRS Form 2290 by the deadline or not at all, you will be penalized 4.5% of your total 2290 tax amount. After that, your penalty amount will increase on a monthly basis for up to five months.

If you fail to pay your 2290 tax by the deadline you’ll face a monthly fee of 0.5%. On top of all of that, you will face an additional interest charge of .54%. These penalties will make the amount you owe the IRS skyrocket!

If you don’t file by the deadline, or if you fail to file at all, then you won’t have a copy of your stamped Schedule 1, which serves as proof of payment. You need your stamped Schedule 1 to register new vehicles and to renew your vehicle tags with the DMV. Without it, you’ll be operating illegally. If pulled over, your vehicle will be placed out of service, ticketed, and your registration may be suspended.

Now if you forget to file your HVUT, don’t panic. You may not be penalized if you can show reasonable cause for filing late, or why your payment is late. Simply file as soon as you can and attach an explanation for filing late to your return. The IRS will then either accept or reject your explanation as a reasonable cause. There are also penalties for filing fraudulent or false returns.
Thankfully all of this can be avoided when you file over the phone with TSNAmerica!
