The mileage use limit applies to the total mileage a vehicle is on the road during a period, regardless of the number of owners.
If the heavy vehicle filed as exempt exceeds this mileage limit, form 2290 Amendment needs to be filed and tax has to be paid. This amended Form2290 has to be filed by the last day of the month following the month in which the mileage use limit was exceeded.

IRS to Host Public Meeting Dec. 8 on Real-Time Tax System

WASHINGTON –– The Internal Revenue Service will kick off a series of public meetings  Thursday, Dec. 8 to gather feedback on how to implement a series of long-term changes to the tax system described by IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman in an April 2011 speech at the National Press Club.  In that speech, the Commissioner described a vision where the IRS would move away from the traditional “look back” model of compliance, and instead perform substantially more “real time,” or upfront matching of tax returns when they are first filed with the IRS.  The goal of this initiative is to improve the tax filing process by reducing burden for taxpayers and improving overall compliance upfront.

Under the vision of a real-time tax system, the IRS could match information submitted on a tax return with third-party information right up front during processing and could provide the opportunity for taxpayers to fix the tax return before acceptance if it contains data that does not match IRS records

By contrast, today the IRS conducts a significant number of compliance activities months after the tax return has been filed and processed.  It is not uncommon for a taxpayer to receive a notice 12 to 18 months after a tax return is filed.  This after-the-fact compliance approach can create problems and frustrations for both taxpayers and the IRS.

At the public meetings, IRS officials will solicit feedback and input from outside stakeholders to provide comments and insight. The first meeting will feature representatives of consumer groups, the tax professional community and government representatives.  A future public meeting will include, among others, representatives of the employer and payroll community, the software industry, financial institutions and additional government representatives.

The first meeting, scheduled at 9:00 a.m. on Dec. 8, will take place at the IRS Headquarters Building Auditorium, 1111 Constitution Ave., NW, Washington, D.C. Those who would like to attend the meeting should e-mail the IRS atCL.NPL.Communications@irs.gov with the contact information for the attendees or call the IRS at 202-622-3359.

The next public meeting will be held early next year.

IRS Gives Truckers Three-Month Extension; Highway Use Tax Return Due Nov. 30

Date: July 16th, 2011.

The Internal Revenue Service today advised truckers and other owners of heavy highway vehicles that their next federal highway use tax return, usually due Aug. 31, will instead be due on Nov. 30, 2011.

Because the highway use tax is currently scheduled to expire on Sept. 30, 2011, this extension is designed to alleviate any confusion and possible multiple filings that could result if Congress reinstates or modifies the tax after that date. Under  temporary and proposed regulations filed today in the Federal Register, the Nov. 30  filing deadline for Form 2290, Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return, for the tax period that begins on July 1, 2011, applies to vehicles used during July, as well as those first used during August or September. Returns should not be filed and payments should not be made prior to Nov. 1.

To aid truckers applying for state vehicle registration on or before Nov. 30, the new regulations require states to accept as proof of payment the stamped Schedule 1 of the Form 2290 issued by the IRS for the prior tax year, ending on June 30, 2011.  Under federal law, state governments are required to receive proof of payment of the federal highway use tax as a condition of vehicle registration. Normally, after a taxpayer files the return and pays the tax, the Schedule 1 is stamped by the IRS and returned to filers for this purpose.  A state normally may accept a prior year’s stamped Schedule 1 as a substitute proof of payment only through Sept. 30.

For those acquiring and registering a new or used vehicle during the July-to-November period, the new regulations require a state to register the vehicle, without proof that the highway use tax was paid, if the person registering the vehicle presents a copy of the bill of sale or similar document showing that the owner purchased the vehicle within the previous 150 days.

In general, the highway use tax applies to trucks, truck tractors and buses with a gross taxable weight of 55,000 pounds or more. Ordinarily, vans, pick-ups and panel trucks are not taxable because they fall below the 55,000-pound threshold.

For trucks and other taxable vehicles in use during July, the Form 2290 and payment are, under normal circumstances, due on Aug. 31. The tax of up to $550 per vehicle is based on weight, and a variety of special rules apply to vehicles with minimal road use, logging or agricultural vehicles, vehicles transferred during the year and those first used on the road after July.

Last year, the IRS received about 650,000 Forms 2290 and highway use tax payments totaling $886 million. Get ready for the new tax year 2011-12, efile through www.TaxExcise.com.

IRS Form 2290 Amendment efiling

Tax Form 2290IRS Form 2290 Amendments:

When reporting an original Form 2290, Heavy Motor Truck Tax with IRS for the tax year, you would have changed some information like VIN, Gross Weight, Mileage Limit then IRS wants you to file amendments to the originally filed form 2290. There are three types of amendments available for form 2290

For a vehicle that will be used within 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles) during the period, it can be reported as a suspended/exempt vehicle from tax liability.

Suspended/Exempt Vehicles exceeding the mileage use limit:

Once a suspended vehicle exceeds the mileage use limit, the tax becomes due. Mileage use limit means the use of a vehicle on public highways 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles). The mileage use limit applies to the total mileage a vehicle is used during a complete tax period, regardless of the number of owners.

We will figure the tax based on the month the vehicle was first used in the period. The tax due has to be paid to the IRS by available Payment Options. By e-filing the amended Form 2290, by the last day of the month following the month in which the mileage use limit was exceeded.

A corrected schedule-1 copy with the VIN and other details will be stamped by IRS and the same will be sent to you by email. You have the option of printing the corrected Schedule-1 copy by logging into your personal account. You also have the option to subscribe for a copy by FAX.

Additional Tax from Increase in taxable gross weight:

The taxable gross weight of a vehicle increases during the period and the vehicle falls in a new category then you are suppose to report an 2290 Amendment and pay the tax due on time.

For instance, an increase in maximum load customarily carried may change the taxable gross weight.

Report the additional tax for the remainder of the period on Form 2290, e-file Form 2290 and Schedule 1 by the last day of the month following the month in which the taxable gross weight increased.

Figure the additional tax using the following:

1. Identify the month the taxable gross weight increased.

2. Determine the new taxable gross weight category.

If the increase in taxable gross weight occurs in July after you have filed your return, you still have to report a new amendment form for the additional tax.

A corrected schedule-1 copy with the VIN and new category [Gross Weight] will be stamped by IRS and the same will be sent to you by email. You have the option of printing the corrected Schedule-1 copy by logging into your personal account. You also have the option to subscribe for a copy by FAX.

VIN Correction:

If you are correcting a vehicle identification number (VIN) listed on a previously filed Schedule 1 (Form 2290). While reporting a Form 2290 for your vehicle, by mistake if you have filed for a wrong Vehicle Identification Number [VIN] then you have to file a new amendment for VIN correction.

A corrected schedule-1 copy with the correct VIN and other details will be stamped by IRS and the same will be sent to you by email. You have the option of printing the corrected Schedule-1 copy by logging into your personal account. You also have the option to subscribe for a copy by FAX.
