  • Schedule 5: Section 4081(e) Claims
  • Schedule 6: Other Claims including the credit claim from Form 2290

Use Schedules 1, 2, 3, 5, and 8 to claim certain fuel related refunds such as nontaxable uses (or sales) of fuels. Form 8849 lists the schedules by number and title.

Use Schedule 6 for claims not reportable on Schedules 1, 2, 3, 5, and 8, including

  • To claim amounts that you took or will take as a credit on Schedule C (Form 720), Form 730, Form 2290, or Form 4136.
