Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How to handle overpaid taxes for irs form 2290?

A: A credit, lower tax, exemption, or refund is not allowed for an occasional light or decreased load or a discontinued or changed use of the vehicle. What that means is if you filed your Form 2290 at 80,000 lbs, but had occasions where you operated at a lower weight class, that will not qualify you for a credit. If you used your vehicle for only a portion of the tax year, you will qualify for the credit. If you did not exceed 5,000 miles (7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles). If you did travel more than 5,000 miles (7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles) then you will NOT qualify for the credit.

The credit for vehicles that were stolen, destroyed or sold during the tax year will be prorated based on the dates of the occurrence. For vehicles sold, destroyed or stolen, you must include the VIN, taxable gross weight, and date of sale, accident or theft. The credit for the tax paid can be claimed on the next Form 2290 filed or the refund can be claimed on Form 8849. You do not have to wait until the tax period ends.
