Correction: IRS 2290s and full HVUT payments due Aug. 31

| 7/26/2006

If you haven’t mailed it yet, you have a little more than a month to file your 2290 tax form and pay your heavy vehicle use tax.

Truck owners have to pay the tax and get a stamped copy of their Schedule 1 as proof of payment before they can get their new tags.

The 2290 form and the full amount of HVUT are due Thursday, Aug. 31.

Remember, the full amount of the tax is now due when you file. In 2005, the IRS eliminated the quarterly payment plan for the tax, which totals $550 a year for trucks weighing 75,000 pounds or more
