Purpose of Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)

Under the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regulations, a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) consists of 17 characters and it is assigned to the vehicle for identification purposes. The main aim of the VIN system is to enhance the accuracy and efficiency of vehicle recall campaigns or defects related to motor vehicle safety. The VIN system is also vital for law enforcement officials as an anti-theft mechanism, for identification purposes of insurance companies, for researchers to identify the vehicles during crash investigation programs, for tilting purposes, and to state governments for vehicle registrations. 

Each and every vehicle has a VIN, which is assigned at the time the vehicle is manufactured. It is unique for each vehicle, and no two vehicles have the same number. The VIN is used to track the vehicle’s insurance policies, reports of accidents, and other related incidents. In order to memorize your VIN number, check how the VIN is formed. The 17 characters of the VIN are divided into 3 parts: Identifier of world manufacturer, vehicle descriptor section, and vehicle identifier section. when you split the VIN according to the groups, it makes it easier to keep the number in mind. 

Things to Remember Before Free VIN Correction

There are certain things that you need to keep in mind before proceeding to VIN corrections.

  • VIN corrections are done only for taxable or suspended vehicles, and not for credit vehicles or for previously suspended vehicles. 
  • If you are filing a VIN Correction Form 2290, it can’t be combined with another credit claim on the same form. 
  • The incorrect VIN form must be a paid original IRS 2290 Form. Failing to do that will attract penalties on top of the actual tax from the IRS.
