Form 2290 Deadlines
For vehicles first used on a public highway during the month of July, file Form 2290 and pay the appropriate tax between July 1 and August 31.
If you place an additional taxable truck registered in your name on the road during any month other than July, you are liable for the Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax (Form 2290), prorated for the months during which it was in service. You must file Form 2290 for these trucks by the last day of the month following the month the vehicle was first used on public highways. Use the table below to determine your filing deadline.

These due date rules apply whether you are paying the tax or reporting the suspension of the tax. It is important to file and pay all your Form 2290 taxes on time to avoid paying interest and penalties.
- File by this date regardless of when state registration for the vehicle is due. If any due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, file by the next business day.
- This date may not apply for privately purchased used vehicles. See Tax Computation for Privately Purchased Used Vehicles, below.
If a vehicle is first used on a public highway after July of the current year, see the table above to determine the due date of the return and payment of tax. If the vehicle is still being used in July of the following year, the Form 2290 filing deadline would be August 31.
