Form 2290 Tax Due

Know when your tax due is

Generally, the truck dues are paid annual. The taxable period for form 2290 begins on July 1 of the current year and ends on June 30 of the following year. For vehicles that are in use at the beginning of the tax period, 2290 filing deadline is August 31. Taxes on the full tax period must be filed and paid in advance.

The due date for a partial period return depends on the month you first use your vehicle. If you place an additional taxable truck on the road during any month other than July, you are liable for 2290 taxes on it, but only for the months during which it was in service. You must file Form 2290 for these trucks by the last day of the month following the month the vehicle was first used on public highways.

Truck Tax Dues can be electronically prepared and reported to the IRS using TruckDues.com.

Extension of time to file

Before the due date of the return, you may request an extension of time to file your return by writing to:

Department of the Treasury
Internal Revenue Service
Cincinnati, OH 45999-0031

In your letter, you must fully explain the cause of the delay. Except for taxpayers abroad, the extension may be for no more than 6 months. An extension of time to file does not extend the time to pay the tax. If you want an extension of time to pay, you must request that separately.
