2024 form 2290 due date extended to September 3

2024 form 2290 due date extended to September 3


As a fleet manager, this might come as a relief. The Internal Revenue Service has given an extension for filing the heavy vehicle use tax (Form 2290) return for the year 2024.

Here are some important things to know about this extension and how it can be advantageous to your fleet:

  • Extended Deadline: File Your Form 2290 by September 3rd, 2024 .Traditionally, every year the deadline to file Form 2290 and pay HVUT falls on August 31st. However, in the current fiscal period (2024), the IRS extended it until September 3rd. This provides owners with extra time beyond a fortnight so that they can accumulate data, process payments and submit their returns electronically.
  • Important Note: While there is more time to file now than before, it is still generally recommended that you complete your HVUT filing as early as possible in order to avoid any potential issues that could arise from late filings or penalties associated therewith.

Who Benefits from the Extension?

This situation should be taken seriously by those who fall under one or more of these categories:

  • Large fleets with considerable consolidation of data needs before filing.
  • Those affected by an external party that prepared taxes slowly due to high volumes.
  • Recently acquired vehicles which have not been registered yet under HVUT need additional time.

Don’t Miss Out: Key Steps for Timely Filing

What follows is a few key steps to make sure you take the benefit of the extended deadline in filing your Form 2290 on time:

  • Gather Required Information: These include details like Employer Identification Number (EIN), Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) and, taxable gross weight for each vehicle in your fleet.
  • Choose an e-file Provider (if applicable): You can choose to use an electronic filer approved by IRS which will enable the process of filing to be faster and more efficient.
  • Prepare Your Payment: Have ready your most preferred mode of payment like credit card, debit or EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System).
  • File Electronically by September 3rd: Submitting your Form 2290 electronically prior to the extension period elapsing ensures no penalties are incurred.

Your fleet can remain HVUT compliant and avoid any possible tax issues by utilizing this opportunity to maintain orderliness with your fil ing activity through making it timely.
