IRS: Utah truckers with 25+ rigs must file electronically

Individuals and organizations with 25 or more trucks, tractors or other heavy vehicles used on highways now are required to make their excise tax filings with the IRS electronically, rather than by paper.

Form 2290, Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return, is used to report and pay highway-use excise taxes.

Last year truckers and others filed over 700,000 Forms 2290 and paid over $1 billion in federal highway use taxes. Last year, an estimated 6,200 Forms 2290 were filed by Utahns and a projected 7,000 Forms 2290 will be filed in 2008.
