Welcome back truckers, hope you are fit and fine. Hope you have filed form 2290 for the year 2014-15 and if you have not got your hands on HVUT yet, let us remind you, today is the last date for filing your return with no penalties getting involved.
Don’t get yourself confused, the due date for this year is 2nd of September as the actual due date was falling on a weekend. As per the books of IRS, if the due date falls on a weekend, the next business day is treated as the due date and that is why, 2nd of September is the last day for filing HVUT online or paper file.
What Happens If You Don’t File IRS Form 2290 By The Due Date?
Well, there are few consequences faced by the taxpayer for not filing HVUT on time. Among them, paying penalties and interest are the most frequent.
The total penalty for not filing by August 2014 will be 4.5% of the total tax due. This penalty is added up for 5 months.
For instance, if your total tax due is $250, then penalty will be $250X4.5%= $11.25
So total tax due with penalty will be $261.25
Apart from penalties, the IRS charges monthly interest for the total tax due which is 0.5 of the total tax due.
Therefore, if you do not file your 2290 return on time, you will be liable to pay taxes with penalty and interests, which costs you around 5% of your total tax due. It is advisable to file your tax return on time to stay away from IRS audits.
