For many truck drivers filing there Form 2290 a major question that arises every year is “How do I file my 2290 return if my vehicle is exempt from tax?” First you need to understand what vehicles are exempt from the HVUT. There are only a few reasons your heavy highway vehicle will be exempt from tax. To be exempt from the tax, a highway motor vehicle must be used and actually operated by The Federal Government, The District of Columbia, A state or local government. Commercial vehicles traveling fewer than 5,000 miles and Agriculture vehicles traveling fewer than 7,500 miles annually are also exempt from the HVUT.

One common misunderstanding that stems from this question is that if your vehicle is exempt from tax you do not have to file a 2290 return. This is a common misconception regarding the form. All heavy highway vehicles must file a return, whether they are taxable or exempt.

The Fine Line Between The HVUT & The IFTA

Posted by Admin on 31. May 2012 17:34

Right around every tax filing season, there tends to be a rise in conversation between truckers about how to go about filing the various taxes, if hired accountants are charging excessively, and what these taxes go towards. The main taxes often discussed are the heavy vehicle use tax and the international fuel tax agreement, which truckers and companies tend to confuse as the same tax and filing. These are both taxes that must be paid by all truck drivers and fleets, yet there are distinct differences between the two financial obligations.

The international fuel tax agreement was introduced to simplify the reporting of fuel use by motor carriers that operate in more than one jurisdiction, specifically long-haul trucks. The carrier files a quarterly fuel tax report that is used to determine the net tax or refund due and to redistribute taxes from collecting states to states that it is due. The best way to describe the IFTA tax system is by labeling it as a “pay now or pay later” system, in which carrier vehicles credit their licensed account anytime they pay the fuel tax. At the end of the fiscal quarter, the driver completes their fuel tax report listing all miles traveled and all gallons purchased, which is then averaged to determine the driver’s tax liability. The IFTA tax relates to fuel purchased and miles traveled, while the HVUT is something a little different.

The heavy vehicle use tax is a financial obligation established to address the issue that correlates heavier vehicle road usage and destruction of national roadways. The heavy vehicle use tax strictly relates to the size of long-haul carrier trucks, since it is believed that their weight greatly erodes highways. The amount of tax paid is determined by the month the truck begins use and payment is only needed once annually before the end of the tax filing season or serious penalties are incurred.

Fortunately, carriers no longer have to worry about filing for the HVUT or being exploited by ravenous accountants because is able to electronically file Form 2290 for an extremely affordable price. ETax2290 is trusted by many of the largest carriers and service providers in North America.
