Federal Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290 Service Provider

If you are required to pay Heavy Vehicle Use Taxes (HVUT), you must file the IRS Form 2290. If you have been paying these taxes for many years, then you know that this form has historically been filed by paper. However, there have been some huge technology advances in the past few years and the IRS does now accept and encourage taxpayers to E-File their 2290 Form.  

The IRS has certified several 3rd Party Service Providers to E-File the Form 2290 on behalf of those taxpayers who need to file. The IRS itself does not provide a way to E-File this form through their website.  In deciding how to file, there are a few things that you should consider. When you select a provider, it is important to be sure that they are an Authorized IRS E-File Provider, make sure that they can handle all of your truck tax needs, and it is safest to find a provider that is entirely web-based.

When selecting an Authorized E-File Provider, you should look on their website for something to verify that they are actually authorized by the IRS to E-File tax forms. You can also refer to the IRS Website to see a complete list of Authorized E-File Providers.  

If you are filing several types of Truck Taxes and not just the Form 2290, such as IFTA, or Form 8849 then it would be helpful to have them all filed from the same place. Some service providers are exclusively for Form 2290, or Form 8849, etc. The most convenient and economical way of filing would be to have them all filed from the same service.

The benefits of a web-based system are indeed numerous. If an E-Filing system is not web-based, then there is less reason to use it. The IRS recommends E-Filing because of it’s speed and security. If you are required to download lots of files and store information on your computer, your system is not completely web based. The benefits of a web-based system are obviously the speed of transfer to the IRS when you are finished, but also the security of storing your information online instead of on your computer. If you rely on your computer to store your information, you run the risk of losing all of your information if your computer crashed or if you spill something on it, etc.
