Form 8849 - Claim for Refund of Excise Taxes - $55

Form 8849, Schedule 6 is used to claim a refund on Form 2290 HVUT when taxes have already been paid. You can file IRS Form 8849 to claim your refund if your vehicle was:

  • Stolen, destroyed or sold before June 1 and not used during the remainder of the period
  • Used during the prior period 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles or less for agricultural)

The 8849 credit for vehicles that were stolen, destroyed or sold during the tax year will be prorated based on the dates of the occurrence. You do not have to wait until the tax period ends. The 8849 credit for low mileage vehicles is never prorated. For vehicles that tax was paid and the vehicles were used 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles), the credit (or refund) cannot be claimed until the end of the tax period for which the initial tax was paid.
