People who dwell in larger cities constantly breathe in poisons released in air. Research on this pollution problem is well established. Pollutants coming from cars and trucks are responsible for lung disease, lung cancer and asthma. But that's not all. New research has shown that poisons coming from our cars and trucks are responsible for increases in many types of cancers, heart disease, and even Alzheimer's disease.
An Easy Way to Help Stop Pollution and Save Your Lungs
A good suggestion would be to find a product that reduces toxicity in air, while extending life expectancy of your car's engine. Ideally, product should be effective when used in small amounts and be unique (can be used in gasoline, diesel, RFG, biodiesel, and propane). This product is known as a fuel catalyst, which has been used successfully for over 9 years by thousands of people, as well as city governments, large trucking lines, railroads, farming, and boating companies.
New Law Changes Highway Use Tax Rules: Installment Payment Option EliminatedWritten by Richard A. Chapo
The IRS is reminding truckers and other owners of heavy highway vehicles that installment option for paying federal highway use tax will no longer be available. This change was included in American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 and applies to filers of Form 2290, Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return.
Beginning with Form 2290 for tax year that begins on July 1, 2005 and ends on June 30, 2006, balance due shown on form must be paid in full by due date of return. In most cases, deadline for filing return and paying any tax due is August 31, 2005. Payment can be made by check, money order or electronically through electric payment (EFTPS).
In previous years, taxpayers who timely filed Form 2290 could choose to pay tax in four equal installments. Ordinarily, these installment payments were due on last day of August, December, March and June. About 148,000 taxpayers chose this option last year in 2004.
In general, highway use tax applies to trucks, truck tractors and buses with a gross taxable weight of 55,000 pounds or more. Ordinarily, vans, pick-ups and panel trucks are not taxable because they fall below 55,000-pound threshold.
