Truckers Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Filing Deadline August 31, 2022

Those who have registered or are required to register large trucks and buses need to file Form 2290, Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return, by August 31st, 2022.

Who is Required to File?

Truckers that have a highway motor vehicle registered in their name, with a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more must file Form 2290 and pay the tax. Typically, owners of smaller trucks such as vans, pickup trucks, panel trucks, etc., are not required to file or pay tax on these vehicles. Taxes are not due on any vehicle that is expected to be used for 5,000 miles or less.  Filing a tax return for these vehicles is still required, with no tax due. When a vehicle’s mileage exceeds 5,000 during the tax period, the tax then becomes due.

How Much Do You Owe?

The amount of tax you owe depends on the month when the first use occurs on public highways during the tax period. The tax period runs from July 1 to June 30. Vehicles first used on a public highway during the month of July 2022 must file Form 2290, Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return, and pay the appropriate tax between July 1 and August 31. Any additional taxable vehicles placed on the road during any month other than July should be prorated for the months during which it was in service. The IRS has a table to help determine your correct filing deadline.
