Form 2290 is a Federal Excise Tax that is imposed on heavy trucks that operate on public highways. Any truck that weighs 55,000 pounds or more is subjected to this tax. Although all the trucks have to be filed,
only the trucks that will be used for 5000 miles or more are taxed. The federal tax is collected annually and is utilized for the construction and maintenance of highways.
