Online Help For HVUT Form 2290

Heavy Vehicle Usage Tax (HVUT) is a relatively simple concept wherein a vehicle is taxed if it weighs 55,000 pounds or more and utilizes the federal highways for commercial and non-commercial purposes. 

HVUT is one of the most significant contributors to generating Federal Highway Trust Fund (HTF) revenue for the U.S. This is why the IRS is encouraging truck and fleet owners to choose voluntary compliance. 

While HVUT is a simple filing process, it comes with several complexities, which require extra effort and attention to retain reporting accuracy and compliance.

Online Help To eFile 2290 Amendments 

Essentially, you are required to file a 2290 Amendment when you have to report an increase in the taxable gross weight of your vehicle and/or if your vehicle exceeds the mileage use limit. 

The change in the vehicle’s weight changes its tax category. If the weight increases, the taxpayer has to report and pay the additional tax for the additional weight. 

Similar to the weight, if the vehicle is utilizing the federal highways and exceeding its mileage usage limit, then the additional mileage utility will be taxed. 

A 2290 Amendment is a separate form that must be filed by the end of a succeeding month from change to avoid citations from the IRS. 

If the vehicle’s weight decreases and falls below the lowest tax category, the vehicle ceases to be qualified for HVUT taxes. In such a case, you must request suspension from HVUT taxes.
