Form 2290 E-filing Process

Step 2: Choose 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. A Form 2290 must be filed once a vehicle is placed in service. The Form 2290 due date for each month is the last day of the following month. If a previous tax year filing has been submitted for a vehicle, then your First Use Month will be July - which is the first month of the Tax Period.

If the vehicle is no longer in service check the box for "Final Return", be sure the year is correct. If an incorrect tax year is entered, it cannot be changed without filing an amended return. If you are entering a vehicle that was not in service for a previous year you will need to enter the year and month of the vehicle was first placed into service during the tax year.
