Form 2290 E-filing Process Form 2290 The IRS 2290 Tax Form online exists as a way to pay Heavy Vehicle Use Taxes, or HVUT, which must be filed with the IRS for any highway motor vehicle that exceeds a gross weight of 55,000 pounds. Add Business Choose the First Used Month We support filing returns for the current tax year and previous tax years. The HVUT Tax period begins in July and ends on June 30th of the following year.
