The IRS today issued a release as a reminder that Form 2290 relating to a heavy vehicle’s use of highways during July 2019 is due September 3, 2019 (the Tuesday after Labor Day).
Owners of most heavy highway vehicles are required to file Form 2290, Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return. The highway use tax applies to highway motor vehicles with a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more. This generally includes large trucks, truck tractors, and buses. The tax is based on the weight of the vehicle and a variety of special rules apply.
As noted in today’s release—IR-2019-138—the returns must be filed and tax payments made by September 3, 2019, for vehicles used on the road during July. Truckers have additional time since the normal deadline of August 31 falls on a Saturday this year and Monday, September 2, is a federal holiday (Labor Day).
