Form 2290 Tax Calculator

How to Calculate my Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT)?

Want to know exactly how much your HVUT will be before you e-file Form 2290? You can quickly figure out your 2290 tax amount by simply entering a few key details.

  • Select the First Used Month

    Choose the month that you first used the vehicle during the tax year. The Form 2290 tax year begins on July 1 and ends on June 30 of the following year.

  • Select a weight category and enter the vehicle count

    The taxable gross weight of a vehicle is a sum of:

    • The actual unloaded weight of a fully equipped vehicle.
    • The actual unloaded weight of any trailers or semi-trailers that are fully equipped and generally used in combination with the vehicle.
    • The weight of the maximum load carried on the vehicle and the trailers or semi-trailers.
    Taxable Weight Categories A [55,000 lbs] to V [Over 75,000 lbs]
    Tax Exempt Category W
    Tax Exempt / Suspended Vehicles

    Tax exempt vehicles will be marked as “Category W” on your Form 2290. A vehicle is considered suspended if it is driven less than 5,000 miles during a particular tax year. Agricultural vehicles can be driven up to 7,500 miles.

    Logging Vehicles

    If a vehicle exclusively haul products harvested from the forested site then it is a Logging vehicle. Logging vehicles are taxed at a slightly reduced rate (25% less).

  • Add vehicles with multiple weight catagories

    If you have vehicles with different weight categories, click Add Another Category button. Then enter Taxable and Logging vehicles count for the new weight category to calculate the
    total tax.
