IRS E-File System Shutdown
Form 2290 must be filed for the month the taxable vehicle is first used on public highways during the current period. The current period begins July 1, 2015, and ends June 30, 2016. Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the month following the month of first use (as shown in the chart below).
Note. If any due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, file by the next business day.
Extension Of Time For Filing Form 2290 Paying The Tax
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.
- You can e-file Form 2290 and can receive your stamped copy by Sept. 7, without any late fee.
Penalty For Late Filing/Paying HVUT
Failing to file form 2290 for the liable Heavy Vehicle Use Tax is equivalent to 4.5% of the total tax due assessed on a monthly basis up to five months. Additional monthly penalty equal to 0.5 percent of total tax due is applicable to late filers who pay late. Additional interest charges of 0.54 % per month builds up as well. An affected taxpayer e-filing after the 7th of September, 2015 can inquire with the IRS on penalty using the contact details provided on the notice that they may get for filing after the extension period.
