If you are registered as the owner of a vehicle used on any public highway, it is important to understand your tax obligations. The Heavy Vehicle Use Tax or HVUT tax, is a federal excise tax that applies to any vehicle used on a public highway with a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more. The tax is based on the weight category of the vehicle and the amount of use during the tax year.
The Form 2290 e-file program is the electronic filing of the IRS Form 2290. The e-file program was created by the IRS to offer taxpayers a faster, more convenient way to file their Form 2290 tax return.
When you e-file online, you will receive an instant confirmation that your 2290 return has been received and approved. You will also receive the watermarked Schedule 1 confirmation that can be used for proof of payment of the Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax for the vehicle's state registration or renewal.
E-filing is the easiest and most convenient way to file your IRS Form 2290 return. Plus, it helps to avoid any penalties or interest charges that may be assessed if you file a paper return. The IRS must receive your tax payment prior to the Form 2290 due date to avoid late charges and interest penalties.
Electronic filing of the Form 2290 is required if you are reporting 25 or more vehicles.

The system will walk you through each step of the process including where to add your vehicle identification numbers (VIN). You will start by selecting the tax year, entering your vehicle information, including the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), taxable gross weight, and the month first used date. You can add multiple vehicles on a single 2290 filing.
Heavy vehicles with a low mileage use limit are known as Suspended Vehicles. Tax suspended vehicles designated as Category "W" are vehicles that have been used on public highways that do not exceed 5,000 miles (7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles) during the tax period. All low mileage suspended vehicles must still be reported to the IRS on the second screen of the 2290 return.
If you purchase a new vehicle during the tax period, you only need to report the new vehicle identification number on the Form 2290. You don't need to report VIN's that have been previously reported on a 2290 return for the same tax year.
You can also choose whether you want to send a copy of the stamped Schedule 1 to any additional email addresses. The last step is to review your return for accuracy and submit.
