Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (form 2290)

It is that time of year again!  If you own and use a truck weighing 55,000 lbs. or more, you must pay a Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) to the IRS.  HVUT payments are due July 1st but no later than August 31st each year.  Paying after August 31st will gain you penalties and interest assessed by the IRS!  You may pay your tax any time after the IRS makes the 2019-2020 forms available, usually in May.

The IRS is encouraging companies to file their 2290 taxes online.  Please visit their website for approved e-file providers.  Go to IRS.GOV, search 2290 and click on “e-file Form 2290” for the list of providers.  We have found that the cost of the service varies from company to company.   We’ve seen some providers charge $6.95 for one vehicle and another will charge $29.99 for one vehicle.  Most, if not all, have a link to their pricing so you can research before making a commitment.

Should you have any questions, please contact Cecile at MMTA or your local IRS office.
