You must file Form 2290 and Schedule 1 for the tax period beginning on July 1 and ending on June 30, if a taxable highway motor vehicle (defined below) is registered, or required to be registered, in your name under state, District of Columbia, Canadian, or Mexican law at the time of its first use during the period and the vehicle has a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more.
There are two schedule 1 forms and both the forms needs to be duly filled in and submitted to the IRS. The second copy will be stamped and returned to you for use as proof of payment. Once your return is accepted by the IRS, your stamped Schedule 1 can be available within minutes.
Use Schedule 1 for the following actions:
If Form 2290 is filed electronically, a copy of Schedule 1 with an IRS watermark will be sent to the ERO, transmitter, and/or ISP electronically. Ask the ERO, transmitter, and/or ISP for the original electronic copy of Schedule 1. If you want a copy of a prior-period Schedule 1 returned, you must send a written request to:
Department of the Treasury
Internal Revenue Service
Cincinnati, OH 45999-0031
Generally, states will require verification of payment of the tax for any taxable vehicle before they will register the vehicle. Use the stamped copy of Schedule 1 as proof of payment when registering vehicles with the state. U.S. Customs also requires this proof of payment for entering a Canadian or Mexican vehicle into the United States. If you do not have the stamped copy, you may use a photocopy of Schedule 1 and both sides of your canceled check as proof of payment.
The IRS will share information reported on Form 2290 and Schedule 1. The information shared includes the VINs for all vehicles reported on Schedule 1 and verification that you paid the tax reported on Form 2290, line 6. This information will be shared with the Department of Transportation, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and state Departments of Motor Vehicles. The IRS needs your consent to release this information.
