The filers can claim a refund of the HVUT paid if their vehicle goes through any one of the following:
- Low Mileage Credit - If you had filed Form 2290 and paid the HVUT for your vehicle, and the vehicle remains suspended (doesn't cross 5000 miles) during the tax year, you can claim a refund on the HVUT amount paid for the vehicle.
- Sold/Destroyed/Stolen - If you paid the HVUT for your vehicle and it was sold, destroyed, or lost during the tax year, the HVUT amount paid can be claimed.
- Overpayment of Taxes - If you had filed your Form 2290 erroneously and paid an excessive HVUT, this tax amount can be claimed from the IRS.
You must file Form 8849 to claim a refund on the HVUT paid. You can also use the HVUT as a credit amount while filing your Form 2290 return for the next tax year.
