EIN(Employer Identification Number) Update for Federal Tax Forms 2290 & 8849

If you are filing for either IRS Form 2290 or Form 8849, you will benefit from this new information regarding Heavy Vehicle Use Tax. The IRS will now be checking EIN (Employer Identification Number) verifications in a much more thorough way than they have in previous years. In the past, the IRS was more lenient on the EIN verifications.  As of now, the IRS requires that all EIN’s be at least two weeks old in order to file with them. Thus, if you have recently applied for an EIN over the past few days, it would be best to wait at least two weeks before filing your Form 2290 or 8849.

This information will be most useful for individual Owner-Operators, as well as Service Providers that file truck taxes for various Owner-Operators. If you need to apply for an EIN, you can contact the IRS via phone or online through the IRS website.
