Form 2290 as you all are familiar with is the official IRS form used to collect an excise tax on heavy vehicles. It is often referred to as the truck tax or Heavy vehicle use tax – HVUT for short. This form allows the government to collect money from every truck owner and operator and in turn that money contributes to various sources. Some of the uses of that revenue are maintaining the roadways and highways throughout the country, assisting in developing construction and contributing to organizations moving toward a more stable and useful vehicle transportation system.
The normal tax amount for the HVUT on a truck 75K or more in weight is $550.00 for an entire filing season which normally runs from July-June of the given year. For instance, the upcoming filing season is for the HVUT of July 2013 to June 2014. The IRS mandates that all Truck owners file 2290 by August 31st. If any trucks are purchased after that date the tax will be prorated appropriately.
