2015 Truck Tax Due

Electronic filing is required for each return reporting 25 or more vehicles

Every year, heavy vehicles with 55,000 pounds or more, driven on the public highway are mandate to renew their 2290’s and pay taxes starting from July 1st till August 31st. Renew your 2290’s on time to keep late filing penalties or interest away. When you own 25 or more vehicles, you are required to file 2290’s electronically through an authorized service provider like TruckDues.com.

If the due date is falling on a weekend or a public holiday, the next business day is treated as the last date to file and report form 2290.

I.e. if your vehicle was used in the month of February, you must file form 2290 by the end of March of the same year.
