The IRS has made some small changes to Form 2290 filing requirements for the new tax season. It is now mandatory to provide both the name and address of the purchaser for credit/refund claims for vehicles sold after July 1, 2015. After purchasing a vehicle, the tax calculations will also change because you are no longer required to pay tax on the first-used month of a partial month. The prior owner of the vehicle is responsible for paying the tax on this partial month.Start Now
