2290 Road Tax Reports
If your truck weighs 55,000 lbs or more, the government requires you to pay road taxes to the IRS. This tax money is used to maintain the roads by which you travel to conduct business. This payment is also necessary because it is required to obtain the registration from your base state.
This tax is paid for a period of 1 year and the total, without any penalties or interest charges is $550. The period this payment covers is from July 1st of the current year to June 30th of the next year.
When the vehicle is registered, the owner has until the end of the month following the month in which the vehicle was put to service to submit the payment to avoid the late fees.
At Royal Carrier Service, we process all 2290 reports electronically. This means the process is fast and painless and ensures the owner of the vehicle can obtain the registration prior to submitting payment to the IRS.
