IRS Form 2290 Excise Tax

Vehicles that weigh 55,000 lbs. or more and are operated on public highways, either by individual operators or corporations, are required to file IRS Form 2290 in order to pay an excise tax known as the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT). The amount of tax is determined in part by the gross weight of the vehicle.


 

The taxable gross weight of a vehicle (other than a bus) to enter on IRS Form 2290 is the total of:


 

  • The actual unloaded weight of the vehicle fully equipped for service
  • The actual unloaded weight of any trailers or semi-trailers fully equipped for service customarily used in combination with the vehicle
  • The weight of the maximum load customarily carried on the vehicle and on any trailers or semi-trailers customarily used in combination with the vehicle
