IRS Changes Tax Filing Requirements for Heavy Vehicle Use

On October 29, the federal Internal Revenue Service (IRS) published a final rule in the Federal Register which changes the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax. Specifically, the IRS published " regulations that provide guidance on the mandatory electronic filing of Form 2290, ‘‘Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return,’’ for 25 or more vehicles; credits or refunds for sold, destroyed or stolen vehicles; and the tax liability and computation of tax on the use of certain second-hand vehicles. The regulations affect owners and operators of highway motor vehicles with a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more. These final regulations also remove the temporary regulations that provide guidance on the filing of Form 2290 and payment of the associated highway use tax for the taxable period beginning July 1, 2011."
