Due Date to File Form 2290

For vehicles first used on a public highway during July, file Form 2290 and pay the appropriate tax between July 1 and Aug. 31.

If you place an additional taxable truck on the road during any month other than July that was registered in your name, you are liable for the Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax (Form 2290) on it, prorated for the months during which it was in service. You must file Form 2290 for these trucks by the last day of the month following the month the vehicle was first used on public highways. Use the table below to determine your filing deadline.

These due date rules apply whether you are paying the tax or reporting the suspension of tax. It is important to file and pay all your Form 2290 taxes on time to avoid paying interest and penalties

John purchases a new taxable vehicle on Jan. 3, 2016. John is required to register the vehicle in his name. He first uses the vehicle on a public highway in January 2016. John must file a new Form 2290 reporting the new vehicle by Feb. 29, 2016, for the period beginning July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2016.
