Vehicle title transfer is the process whereby the title of the property of a vehicle is transferred from one person to another. This is in most cases the case when selling your automobile to someone else If you own, drive, or manage a business vehicle in the United States of America, then you will need to pay commercial vehicle taxes. While these taxes are denounced by lots of individuals for their sheer existence, there is a good reason behind why these taxes were put forward originally. There are two basic types of commercial vehicle taxes – highway use tax and heavy highway use tax. These taxes must be filed using IRS form 2290, and thus are federal taxes. Before we go into details about these taxes, let us see what IRS means by a “commercial vehicle.”.

According to the IRS, any vehicle that has a gross weight of 55,000 lbs or more is considered a commercial vehicle, and if it travels a minimum of 5000 miles each year on public highways, it is commanded to pay the commercial vehicle taxes in the form of highway use tax and heavy highway use tax. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) gathers these taxes and then distributes it back between the states to sustain and develop highways and other roads.

The highway use tax is analyzed 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 present-day 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 total weight of over 75,000 lbs. This tax is levied as commercial vehicles are heavy and can cause considerable wear to public roads when traveled for the specified distance yearly. 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 cars. These taxes are used to create 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 complies with the same rules. While these commercial vehicle taxes are levied on business and contractors that use entire fleets of commercial vehicles, there are many groups that are exempt from the highway use tax and heavy highway use tax. These consist of state and local governments, important 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 beyond 5000 miles each year do not need to pay these taxes. In order to be exempt, the user of the vehicle must do mileage reporting and submit all charts to the IRS every year.
