The Federal Truckers Tax Form 2290, Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax is a $550 federal excise tax that must be paid on all vehicles with a taxable gross weigh 55,000 pounds or more and operated 5000 miles (7500 miles for logging vehicles) on public highways. The reporting period is from July 1st, 2015 (in any given year) to June 30th, 2016 (the next year). This tax bill is currently due and up for renewal; need to be reported before August 31st, 2015. If the vehicle will not be operated more than 5,000 miles in the coming year (or, if it is agricultural, if it won’t be operated more than 7,500 miles in the year), then it is exempt from paying tax, but still it is required to report 2290 with the IRS.

Taxes are suppose to be estimated right and paid on time, if the Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax is not filed on time and not appropriately paid there will be penalties and interest imposed by the IRS. Interest accrues monthly, and as a result, what started out as a flat $550 tax can increase by hundreds of dollars very quickly. Operationally, even though your truck may not be impounded, you may be put out of service if you cannot provide proof of payment (stamped Schedule 1) of the 2290 to your carrier or governmental agencies.
