Applicable To
Form 2290 Form 8849 Amendments

A vehicle is considered a suspended vehicle if it runs on the public highway for less than 5,000 miles during the tax period. In addition, vehicles used for agricultural purposes will also be considered to be suspended vehicles if used on the public highway for less than 7,500 miles during the tax period.

Reporting Suspended Vehicles on Form 2290

Filers don't have to pay Highway Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) for suspended vehicles. However, they must file Form 2290 return. The suspended vehicles are classified under the weight category "W." 

When you specify suspended vehicles in Form 2290, make sure you have sufficient proofs to support them. Proofs can be a document showing a vehicle's mileage and use. For example, the IRS may ask you to submit proof for your suspended vehicles that they did not exceed the mileage limit. 

Suspended Vehicle Exceeding Mileage Limits

If your suspended vehicle exceeded the mileage limits during the tax period, you must report the exceeded mileage in Form 2290 Amendments.
