The IRS says don’t pay your HHUT (2290) yet!
The IRS annouced that because the Heavy Highway Use Tax is set to expire on September 30, 2011, they are extending the August 31 deadline to November 30! They are doing this so that if the tax gets reinstated or modified there will be less confusion. In fact, they are telling truckers not to pay it before November 1. How’s that for the government? They don’t want your money yet. Might be the first time 🙂
You can still get plates for new trucks without the 2290 receipt also. Hurray for now, let’s hope any “modification” is not an increase in taxes for truckers.
