HVUT is the annual tax assessed on heavy vehicles that operate on public highways and the taxable gross weight is equal to or more than 55,000 pounds. For vehicles over 75,000 pound, the maximum HVUT is $550 per year. Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) requires the proof of payment of HVUT each year and the non-compliance leads to penalty. The tax period for HVUT begins on July 1 every year and ends on June 30 the next year.
if a taxable highway motor vehicle is registered in your name at the time of its
first use during the period and the vehicle has a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more and it is
expected to exceed the mileage above 5000 miles (7500 miles for Agricultural & Logging vehicles),
the business is required to pay the HVUT to IRS.
If the business plans to drive less than 5000 miles (7500 miles for Agricultural & Logging vehicles) in the tax period, they can file the vehicle as Tax-Suspended vehicle and no tax will have to be paid. However, filing for Tax-Suspended vehicle is mandatory.
The Gross Taxable Vehicle Weight can be determined by adding together the actual unloaded weight of the vehicle, trailer, and semi-trailor with the weight of the maximum load generally carried on the vehicle.
The IRS may impose Penalties for multiple reasons on Form 2290 filing. Penalties will be estimated
if you fail to file HVUT returns or pay taxes within the due dates.
HVUT Penalties may also be imposed if there are any false or
fraudulent returns. These penalties are also in addition to the interest
charged on late payments.
Penalties for late filing or late payment of HVUT may not be imposed for a valid reason. If you file after the HVUT due date, you need to attach an explanation with the return for the delay.
