On the Go Transportation [Major] [Minor] and Irs Heavy Highway Use Tax 2290
Vehicle title transfer is the process whereby the title of the possession of a vehicle is transferred from one person to another. This is usually the case when selling your car or truck to another person If you own, drive, or manage a commercial vehicle in the United States of America, then you will need to pay commercial vehicle taxes. While these taxes are denounced by lots of people for their sheer existence, there is a good reason behind why these taxes were put forward initially. There are two basic kinds of commercial vehicle taxes – highway use tax and heavy highway use tax. These taxes have to be filed using IRS form 2290, and thus are federal taxes. Before we explain about these taxes, let us see what IRS means by a “commercial vehicle.”.

According to the IRS, any car that has a gross weight of 55,000 lbs or greater is considered a commercial vehicle, and if it journeys a minimum of 5000 miles annually on public highways, it is obligated to pay the commercial vehicle taxes in the form of highway use tax and heavy highway use tax. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) collects these taxes then distributes it back between the states to preserve and develop highways and other roads.

The highway use tax is evaluated on an annual basis by the IRS on commercial vehicles (as defined above) that travel 5000 miles or more on public highways in a year. The prevailing highway-use taxes are fixed at $ 100 plus an additional $ 1000 per 1000 pounds over 55,000 lbs, and at $ 550 for vehicles that have a gross weight of over 75,000 lbs. This tax is levied as commercial vehicles are heavy and can cause major wear to public roads when traveled for the required distance annually. Not just that, these vehicles can cause more harm than other if involved in accidents with regular vehicles – both to the highway itself and other automobiles. These taxes are used to build new highways and roads, and maintain these and existing roadways.

The heavy highway use tax is the same as the general highway use tax, i.e. it adopts the same rules. While these commercial vehicle taxes are levied on business and companies that operate entire fleets of commercial vehicles, there are many groups that are exempt from the highway use tax and heavy highway use tax. These include state and local governments, vital services like the fire department, the police department, ambulance associations and rescue squads, the federal government and the American Red Cross. These official bodies apart, commercial vehicles that do not travel over 5000 miles each year do not have to pay these taxes. In order to be exempt, the driver of the vehicle must do mileage reporting and submit all forms to the IRS every year.
