Your stamped Schedule 1 serves as your proof of HVUT payment. Your Schedule 1 Form 2290 is required to register new vehicles and renew your tags. You cannot legally operate your heavy-use vehicle without it.
If you are stopped without a current IRS Form 2290 Schedule 1 or with an expired tag, you will be fined and likely placed out of service. It is always better to keep your stamped Schedule 1 in the cabin of your truck.
The trucking companies require a copy of your Form 2290 Schedule 1 as they need to keep records of the HVUT payment done for their trucks.
Form 2290 is an annual heavy vehicle tax return that is filed by drivers/owners of heavy vehicles to calculate and pay Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT). A typical trucking tax year begins on July 1 and ends on June 30 of the subsequent tax year.
Every Schedule 1 expires at the beginning of a tax year (July 1). So it is mandatory for truckers to renew their Form 2290 on an annual basis. The deadline to file your Form 2290 is the last day of the month following the First Used Month (FUM) of your vehicle.
