The IRS Form 2290 is used to pay the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT), which is collected to maintain roads and highways across the nation. The current tax period begins on July 1st, 2018 and ends on June 30th, 2019. You must e-file Form 2290 online and pay HVUT when a vehicle enters service, although agricultural and logging vehicles are exempt from payment. The due date for each month is the last day of the following month. The late filing penalty is equal to 4.5% of the total tax due, assessed on a monthly basis up to five months.
