Agricultural vehicles are vehicles that are used exclusively for farming purposes. Agricultural vehicles that are driven less than 5000 miles are exempted from paying HVUT.
1.What is an agricultural vehicle?
If a vehicle is used exclusively for farming purposes and registered as a farming vehicle, it is considered an agricultural vehicle.
Transportation of horticultural crops, livestock, fertilizer, poultry, seeds, bees, animals, and wildlife to or from a farm are considered farming purposes.
2.Do I have to pay HVUT for an agricultural vehicle?
Like every other heavy vehicle, agricultural vehicles are subjected to Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT). However, if your agricultural vehicle is operated for less than 7500 miles (5000 for other heavy vehicles), your vehicle will be deemed a suspended vehicle. You do not have to pay HVUT for a suspended vehicle, but you will be required to file Form 2290.
3.What is the deadline to file Form 2290 for an agricultural vehicle?
The deadline to file Form 2290 for an agricultural vehicle is the same as for every other heavy vehicle. Your Form 2290 will be due on the last day of the month following the First Used Month (FUM) of your vehicle.
4.How do I file Form 2290 for an agricultural vehicle using ExpressTruckTax?
The fact that your vehicle is an agricultural vehicle only matters if your vehicle is operated for less than 7500 miles (suspended). If your vehicle isn’t suspended, you will not be required to report it as an agricultural vehicle.
While entering your vehicle details, make sure to check both, “Is this a Suspended Vehicle?” and “Used for Agricultural?” boxes to report your vehicle as a suspended agricultural vehicle.
You will not be required to pay taxes if you’re reporting your vehicle as a suspended agricultural vehicle.
