Excise Tax & Returns

Posted by Admin on 31. May 2012 17:29

As one should already know, the heavy vehicle use tax is considered a federal excise tax. An excise tax is generally known as an inland tax on the sale, or production for sale, of specific goods, or more specifically, a tax on a good produced for sale, or sold, within a country or licenses for specific activities. The heavy vehicle use tax may not appear to be a tax on a good, but think about it this way- truck fleets and truck drivers must certify that they have paid the heavy vehicle use tax in order to obtain “the good,” proper licensing and registration from the state, which is pivotal for being a truck driver.

Since the heavy vehicle use tax is considered an excise tax, drivers and fleets have the advantage of receiving a tax return in the name of the HVUT. Truckers are able to file for this return through Form 8849 (Claim for Refund of Excise Taxes Return), which accompanies the HVUT-focused Form 2290. Here are a few reasons explaining why truckers are able to receive a tax refund on the HVUT: an overpayment of tax due to a mistake in tax liability previously reported on Form 2290, a pro rata refund of the tax paid on Form 2290 for a vehicle that was sold, destroyed, or stolen, any vehicle on which the tax was paid on Form 2290 if the vehicle was used 5,000 miles or less on public highways.

The refund demonstrates that the heavy vehicle use tax is not all bad due to the fact that there is, indeed, a method to receive extraneous payments back. Therefore, it is important that truck drivers and fleets maintain proper records of their Form 2290 schedule and other important exchanges of payment in regard to the heavy vehicle use tax, so that come tax return season companies can make their money back.
