You are required to file a HVUT (Heavy Vehicle Utility Tax) Form 2290 if your highway motor vehicle has a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more. Of course, there are always exceptions. If your vehicle is operated by the American National Red Cross, for example, you’re tax exempt. For the full list, see page 2 of the IRS Form 2290 instructions.
Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the month following the month of first use. If you’ve recently purchased a truck, the IRS allows you the remaining days in the month of purchase plus a month extra to file. You’ll file and pay for the partial pay period, which ends June 30, 2019, then you’ll begin filing on a regular yearly schedule, from July 1st to June 30th of the next year.
