The "check if applicable" boxes in Form 2290 must be checked only if you are making any changes to your return or if it is your final return. Let's take a look at what each box means.
This box must be checked if your business address has changed from the address that was reported while filing Form 2290 in the previous tax year.
You are required to check this box if you're going out of business, and this is the last Form 2290 return you are filing.
If you entered the wrong Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) while filing your Form 2290 return, you must file the VIN correction amendment to correct the wrong VIN.
