A warm welcome to our lovely, hardworking truckers, who’re busy behind the wheels, making deliveries even at wee hours. And that brings us to honor the hardship and the contribution for the development of the nation through tax. Form 2290 is the application filed by heavy vehicle owners and operators for using the public highway. It is strongly believed that the heavy vehicle cause damage to the roads and highways, the HVUT is directly contributed for the welfare of the roads.

Understanding the hardship and time consistency behind the wheels, IRS is easy on the truckers, allowing them to assign a third party designee for their form 2290 each time they file their return. We would discuss in detail the purpose of assigning one while reporting form 2290.

Before we proceed with the topic, let’s brush up the basics.

Form 2290:

Form 2290 or HVUT is an application filed by truckers, owner operators and tax filers for their heavy rigs weighing more than 55,000 pounds. Usually the tax season begins from July 1st and last for two months, and the due date falls on 31st of August. This date holds as the last day of filing and if the due date is falling on a weekend or public holiday, the next business day is treated as the last date for filing form 2290.

Also, IRS has made it mandatory for truckers who own more than 25 vehicles to e file their form 2290 and pay their dues to IRS to avoid penalties.

Coming back to the topic, Third Party Designee is a designation you can assign a person who can handle your tax and returns, financial dealings and communication with IRS on your behalf. IRS duly understands your unavailability when you’re behind the wheels. That is why; third party designee comes in for your rescue., a prime product of ThinkTrade shares a piece of advice with our fellow truckers.
