HVUT and 2290 forms due tonight

| 8/31/2005

A reminder that today, Aug. 31, is the deadline for truck owners to pay their federal heavy vehicle use tax.

The burn is $550 for trucks weighing more than 75,000 pounds – and the tax payment is all due at once, along with your 2290 IRS form. Quarterly payments are no longer allowed.

If you miss the deadline, fines and penalties will be added to your tax bill. And, truck owners must pay the tax and get a stamped copy of their Schedule 1 form as proof of payment before they can renew their license plates.
