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

- Owners of vehicles that traveled 5,000 miles or less on public highways 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.
