The law provides penalties for failing to file returns or pay taxes when due. There
are also penalties for filing false or fraudulent returns. These penalties are in
addition to the interest charge on late payments. The penalty for filing a return
late or paying the tax late will not be imposed if you can show reasonable cause
for not filing (or paying) on time. If you file after the due date (including extensions),
attach an explanation to the return to show reasonable cause.
The penalty for failing to file IRS Form 2290
by August 31 is equal to 4.5 percent of the
total tax due, assessed on a monthly basis up to five months. Late filers not making
an HVUT payment
also face an additional monthly penalty equal to 0.5 percent of total tax
due. Additional interest charges of 0.54 percent per month accrue as well.
