Use the stamped copy of Schedule 1 as proof of payment when:
If you do not have the stamped copy, you may use a photocopy of Form 2290, Schedule 1, and both sides of your canceled check as proof of payment.taxmap/instr2/i2290-011.htm#TXMP31c3a0d1
a newly purchased vehicle, if you present to the state a copy of the bill of sale showing that the vehicle was purchased within the last 60 days. However, you must file a return and pay any tax due. See When To File on page 3.
A limited number of states have agreed to participate in an alternate proof of payment program with the IRS. In those states, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) may forward your return to the IRS if certain requirements are met. If you give your Form 2290 (with voucher and payment) to your DMV to be forwarded to the IRS, no further proof of payment is needed to register your vehicle. Contact your local DMV to see if your state participates in this program.
If you give the DMV your Form 2290 to forward, your return is not considered filed until the IRS receives it. You are responsible for any penalties or interest if the return is filed late or lost by the DMV.taxmap/instr2/i2290-011.htm#TXMP602bce6a
Some states are participating in the electronic sharing of information reported on Form 2290 and Schedule 1. The information shared includes the VINs for all vehicles reported on Schedule 1 and verification that you paid the tax reported on line 6 of Form 2290. This information will also be shared with the Department of Transportation, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, state Departments of Motor Vehicles, and the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators. The IRS needs your consent to release this information. If you agree to have the information released, please sign and date the consent on page 2 of Schedule 1. Check with your state to determine if it is participating in the program and if you are still required to submit a stamped Schedule 1 as proof of payment.
