2290 Tax Late Filing Penalties
If you’re filing after the 2290 tax due date, you’ll need to pay a penalty of 4.5% of your total heavy use tax amount. This penalty will increase for up to 5 months.
If you filed your 2290 tax before the 2290 tax due date, but did not pay your 2290 highway use tax amount, you’ll face a penalty of 0.5% of your heavy use tax amount, plus additional interest of 0.54% per month.

Your best bet is to file your 2290 highway use tax as quickly as possible to reduce fees.

Besides reducing penalties, one of the most important reasons for filing heavy use tax ASAP is for your Schedule 1 Form 2290.
You’ll need a current copy of your Schedule 1 Form 2290 for truck operation. It’s also required for tag renewals, international travel, and more.
