Federal State Trucking Associations
When you are a member of the Motor Carriers of Montana, you are part of a federation that includes 50 state trucking associations and industry related conferences and councils.  Altogether, these organizations make up the federation of the American Trucking Associations, which traces its origins to a meeting in Montana in 1933 between the American Highway Freight Association and the Federation Trucking Associations of America.  The Federation is the largest national trade association for the trucking industry.  For your convenience, here is a list of association and affiliates.
IRS Changes Form 2290
The federal Internal Revenue Service has slightly increased the information required for a taxpayer to claim a credit or refund for a vehicle for which the federal heavy vehicle use tax has been paid is sold, stolen, or destroyed. The change was made when IRS issued the instructions for this year's Form 2290, on which the HVUT is reported, and which is due at the end of August 2015. In the past, for a credit or refund, IRS has required the vehicle's identification number (VIN), the weight category it's in for the HVUT, the date the vehicle was sold (or stolen or destroyed), and a copy of the IRS worksheet on which the taxpayer calculated the credit. To this list is now added, for any vehicle sold after the end of June 2015, the name and address of the purchaser. To see all the Form 2290 instructions, click here.
