Form 2290 : What If I Have Sold The Truck And Moved Out Of Business
As a truck owner, it is your responsibility to file form 2290 and pay the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) every year. However, what happens if you have sold your truck and moved out of business before the tax deadline? Well, there are a few things you need to know to avoid any penalties or fines.
Firstly, if you have sold your truck and it was in use during July 1st to June 30th, you are still responsible for the HVUT for the period your truck was on the road. That means you will need to file form 2290 and report the sale of your vehicle. On the form, you need to indicate the date of sale and the name and address of the buyer. You will also need to provide the vehicle identification number (VIN) and mileage for the period the vehicle was in your possession.
Once you have reported the sale of your vehicle, the IRS will prorate the HVUT for the remaining months of the tax period. Any overpaid tax can be refunded to you or credited to future HVUT payments. However, if the tax liability is higher than the credit or refund, you will need to pay the difference.
If you have moved out of business, you will still need to file form 2290 by the deadline. Failure to do so can result in penalties and fines. On the form, you will need to indicate that you have ceased business operations and provide the date of cessation. You will also need to report any vehicles that were in your possession during the tax period, even if they are no longer in use.

The IRS will prorate the HVUT for the remaining months of the tax period, and any overpaid tax can be refunded or credited to future payments. It is important to meet the tax deadline and avoid penalties and fines. If you have any questions or need assistance with your form 2290, consult with simple truck tax.
