Form 2290 Taxable Gross Weight

Updated on May 18, 2020 - 10:30 AM by Admin, ExpressTruckTax

IRS Form 2290 - Amendments If the taxable gross weight of a vehicle increases during the period and the vehicle falls in a new category, you should file an amended return.

1. What is a Form 2290 Amendment?

A Form 2290 amendment must be filed when any vehicle details change after the previously filed 2290 return.

For example, if the taxable gross weight (or the unloaded gross weight) of your vehicle increases, you must report it to the IRS by filing a Form 2290 amendment.

This could happen if the reported gross weight of your vehicle was 60,000 lbs (category G), but the gross weight of the same vehicle increased to 70,000 lbs (category V). If you vehicle’s gross taxable weight increases, you must calculate and report the additional tax using a Form 2290 amendment.

2. How do I amend my Form 2290?

A Form 2290 Amendment must be filed with the IRS if the taxable gross weight of the vehicle increases.

To amend your Form 2290, follow the steps below:

  • Calculate and pay the additional tax for your vehicle.
  • Calculate and report the additional tax for the rest of the period on line 3 of the Form 2290.
  • Check the Amended Return box and enter the month in which the gross weight increased.

At ExpressTruckTax, we make it easy for you to report your increase in taxable gross weight, calculate your new tax dues, and get your updated stamped Schedule 1.

3. When do I file an amendment to my Form 2290?

You must report an increase in your vehicle’s taxable gross weight to the IRS by the end of the month following the weight change.

For instance, if the gross weight changes in September, the last day to file an amendment is October 31st.

When you file with ExpressTruckTax, Form 2290 Amendments are simple. Just enter the new weight of your vehicle and the month in which the weight increased and you will receive an updated stamped Schedule 1.
