The letter must fully explain the cause of the delay. However, an extension of time to file does not extend the time to pay the tax.

The Taxable Gross Weight of a vehicle is the sum of the vehicle

  • Weight of the maximum load customarily carried on the vehicle and on any trailers or semi-trailers customarily used in combination with the vehicle.

When filing out the 2290 Form, you are provided with four different options on how to make the tax payment to the IRS. Payment can be made through:

  • Direct Debit (This requires routing number & bank acct. number)
  • Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS)
  • Check or Money Order Payment
  • Credit Card or Debit Card (This will require the user to visit a third-party website to make the payment)

If you are making a Direct Debit Payment, attach the bank account statement. If you selected to make a payment with the EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System), attach the acknowledgment obtained from the EFTPS. And if using the Credit Card or Debit Card method, you can attach the receipt with a copy of Schedule 1.

The payment at the end is the filing fee that you pay to transmit your form to the IRS. The IRS payment is a separate payment.
