eFiling Form 2290? Save this information to report and file your HVUT Form 2290 easily.

Form 2290 is an IRS return that specifically reports certain information regarding heavy vehicles that utilize the highways. 

But when the vehicles exceed certain mileage use limits, the vehicles are taxed by the IRS. 

As long as your vehicle doesn’t exceed the mileage use limit of 5,000 miles (for commercial vehicles) and 7,500 miles (for agricultural vehicles), you don’t have to pay the HVUT. 

To be more clear, vehicles that weigh 55,000 pounds or more qualify to be taxed for HVUT.
