There are only two weeks left to file Form 2290! This means that drivers have only two weeks left to file before they get penalized or fined for being late with their Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT). Form 2290 is filed annually by drivers of vehicles weighing 55,000 pounds or more to the IRS. Filing Form 2290 guarantees that drivers will receive a Stamped Schedule 1 from the IRS that acts as proof of filing Form 2290. This Stamped Schedule 1 allows drivers to get their vehicle’s tags and registration.
If drivers are found without a current Stamped Schedule 1, that is when penalties and fines can occur. There is also the possibility that a driver will get a ticket for not being able to provide a current Stamped Schedule 1 on top of getting fined. One way to avoid this is by Filing Form 2290 before the August 31st deadline.
The Form 2290 tax year goes from July 1st to June 30th each year. The Stamped Schedule 1 expires each year on June 30th so it is important to file starting July 1st. In this case, the truck’s First Used Month is July and the tax payment is not due until the last day of the following month, which makes the HVUT tax payment deadline August 31st.
In order to make sure that drivers don’t miss the deadline and file on time, TruckLogics’ sister company ExpressTruckTax has the solution drivers need to file Form 2290. This way drivers don’t have to worry about missing the deadline and getting fined by the IRS for being late with the tax payment.

ExpressTruckTax offers convenient payment options for drivers including Electronic Funds Withdrawal, EFTPS, check or money order, and credit or debit card.
