Logging Vehicles

Updated on August 27, 2020 - 4:00 PM by Admin, ExpressTruckTax

If your vehicle is used exclusively for logging purposes, your HVUT tax calculations will be slightly different than for a normal heavy vehicle. Thankfully, ExpressTruckTax will calculate your HVUT accurately based on the information you provide.

1.What is a logging vehicle?

A vehicle used exclusively for the transportation of goods harvested from a forest site and registered with the state as a logging vehicle is considered a logging vehicle.

Timber, charcoal, plywood, veneers, and poles are some of the goods that are harvested from a forest site. Vehicles that are exclusively used for the transportation of these products will be considered logging vehicles.

2.How is the HVUT of a logging vehicle calculated?

Logging vehicles are eligible for lower tax rates. The HVUT for a vehicle is calculated based on the taxable gross weight and the First Used Month (FUM) of the vehicle.

The HVUT payment for logging vehicles is reduced by 25%. For example, a vehicle with a taxable gross weight of 75,000 pounds has to pay an HVUT of $550. But if the vehicle is exclusively used for logging purposes, the HVUT vehicle will be $412.50.

3.What is the deadline to file Form 2290 for a logging vehicle?

Just like every other heavy vehicle, the deadline to file Form 2290 for a logging vehicle falls on the last day of the month following the First Used Month (FUM) of the vehicle.

4.How do I file Form 2290 for a logging vehicle in ExpressTruckTax?

There are only three steps to filing a Form 2290 for any vehicle with ExpressTruckTax.

  • Provide your business details.
  • Choose your tax year and First Used Month (FUM).
  • Provide your vehicle information.

If you’re filing for a logging vehicle be sure to check the “Used for Logging?” box to report that your vehicle is a logging vehicle. Once you do that, the HVUT amount for your logging vehicle will be calculated automatically.
