J. J. Keller’s Helps Carriers Meet August 31 Filing Deadline

Neenah, WI - The August 31 deadline for filing the annual Form 2290 Heavy Vehicle Use Tax is fast approaching, and J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. is making the process easier for carriers with its filing service.

The Heavy Vehicle Use Tax must be paid to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) each year for all vehicles with a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more. Companies with 25 or more qualifying vehicles are required to file Form 2290 electronically. Fleets with fewer than 25 qualifying vehicles are not required to file electronically, but can choose to do so to simplify the process.

The penalty for failing to file Form 2290 by the August 31 deadline is 4.5 percent of the total tax due, assessed on a monthly basis for up to five months.

“With the 2290 filing deadline looming, we’re more than ready to help fleets file quickly, easily and accurately,” said Shaun Gunderson, vice president of managed services at J. J. Keller. “We’ve been an approved IRS electronic filing provider for over 12 years, and thousands of fleets have come to rely on our service.”
