What are farm vehicles, and how do you report farm vehicles on Form 2290? Learn all about 2290 farm vehicles in this simple guide.
Defining Farm Vehicles
A farm vehicle is a vehicle that is exclusively used for farming purposes.
Tractors, pickup trucks, track tractors, balers, 4-wheel drive tractors, and other similar types of vehicles that are exclusively used for farming and agricultural purposes are known as “farm vehicles”.
Farm vehicles are used for transporting forestry goods, commodities, raw materials, wooden logs, and other kinds of tasks that fall within the “farming” framework.
Special signage, placarding, or license plating is not necessary to identify a farming vehicle.
However, the vehicle needs to be registered with the state authorities as a farming vehicle and must only be used for farming and agricultural purposes.
