A stamped Schedule 1 is required for tags and vehicle registration. There are two copies of Schedule 1 to be filled and submitted to the IRS along with Form 2290 while paper filing. The IRS stamps one of the copy of Schedule 1 and provide back to you. This becomes your proof of payment.
When you efile your form 2290, the IRS provides a digital watermark on your Form 2290 Schedule 1. This digitally watermarked Schedule 1 becomes your proof of HVUT payment.
Prior period Schedule 1 at eForm2290 remains available to you, so that you can download it anytime if you need a copy of it in future. You can also get it by sending a written request to:
