IRS Tax Tip 2019-118, August 28, 2019
Taxpayers who must file Form 2290, Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return, have more time to do so this year. That said, the deadline will be here before they know it. Taxpayers must file their 2019 Form 2290 by Tuesday, September 3. Normally, the due date is August 31. However, this year the weekend and a federal holiday extended the 2019 date.
All the information needed to file is on the Trucking Tax Center. Taxpayers can use the friendly URL IRS.gov/trucker.
Anyone who has registered or is required to register a heavy highway motor vehicle must file Form 2290. While some taxpayers who file this form are required to do so electronically, all 2290 filers can file online. These taxpayers can use their credit or debit card to pay the Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax.
Filing Form 2290 electronically helps speed up the return of an IRS-stamped Schedule 1 to the taxpayer as proof of payment. Taxpayers need Schedule 1 for state registration.
Taxpayers with questions can call the IRS Form 2290 Help Line. It is available between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. EST:
Taxpayers who want help in person must call 844-545-5640 to schedule an appointment at an IRS office.
The Trucking Tax Center is also available in Spanish.
