Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Form 8849 and its Schedules?

    The Form 8849 is used to file a claim for a refund of excise taxes, or to claim certain refunds, such as when a vehicle was stolen, destroyed, or sold.

    Generally, you can file a claim for a refund of excise taxes using Form 8849 along with the appropriate schedule form.

    • Schedule 1: Nontaxable Use of Fuels
    • Schedule 2: Sales by Registered Ultimate Vendors
    • Schedule 3: Certain Fuel Mixtures and the Alternative Fuel Credit
    • Schedule 5: Section 4081(e) Claims
    • Schedule 6: Other Claims including the credit claim from Form 2290
    • Choose your IRS payment method
    • Schedule 8: Registered Credit Card Issuers

    Use Schedules 1, 2, 3, 5, and 8 to claim certain fuel related refunds such as nontaxable uses (or sales) of fuels. A list of the schedules by number and title can be found on the Form 2290.

    Schedule 6 is intended for claims not reportable on Schedules 1, 2, 3, 5, and 8, including refunds of excise taxes reported on:

  • Who Should Use Form 8849 Schedule 6?

    • Anyone who overpaid on their Form 2290
    • Owners of vehicles sold, stolen or destroyed after the Form 2290 tax period
    • Owners of vehicles that traveled 5,000 miles or less on public highways during the Form 2290 tax period
    • Owners of vehicles that traveled 7,500 miles or less for agricultural purposes during the Form 2290 tax period
  • Who Shouldn’t File Form 8849?

    Form 8849 should not be used to make adjustments to liability reported on a Form 720. Instead, use Form 720X, the Amended Quarterly Federal Excise Tax Return. Similarly, do not use Form 8849 to claim what you took or will take as a credit on Schedule C (Form 720), Form 730, Form 2290, or Form 4136.
