HVUT Penalties

The IRS may impose Penalties for a number of different reasons in regard to the Form 2290 filing. Penalties may be assessed for failing to file Heavy Vehicle Use Tax returns or pay taxes by the 2290 due date. HVUT Penalties may also be assessed for filing false or fraudulent returns. These penalties are in addition to interest charged on late payments.

HVUT Penalties for late filing or late payment will not be imposed if reasonable cause can be provided for not filing or paying on time. If you file after the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax due date, an explanation must be attached to the return to show reasonable cause.
