E-File IRS Form 2290 before it’s too late is the quickest, easiest, and best value for filing your Form 2290 (Heavy Truck Use Tax) online with the IRS. The due date for the tax is getting closer, and here are a few points to keep in mind while e-filing.

• E-file your 2290 returns with
• Review Federal Tax ID# or EIN# [Employer Identification Number]
• Review your Tax Year and Month
• Review your VIN# [Vehicle Identification Number]
• Sign and date your return electronically
• Choose IRS payment option
• Review all the information
• Double check your Business Name
• E-File Your 2290 Return

Choose an IRS payment option:

There are several options to pay the HVUT taxes with the IRS.
Electronic Funds Withdrawal, or Direct Debit: The IRS will collect the taxes due after they are provided with a bank account number and routing number
• EFTPS: You have to schedule the payment to the IRS by going to
• Check/Money Order: The IRS also supports Check/Money Order as long as it is scheduled by the 30th.

We strongly advise our Canadian customers to use this option as EFW may not work for Canadian banks.

Just a reminder, if you choose Direct Debit (EFW) as a payment method, the IRS will not process your return during the weekends, or on federal holidays, but on the next business day.

Review Tax ID Numbers

carefully check Tax Identification numbers on your return.

Review Your Return is a very smart program, it automatically checks for any errors before you transmit your 2290 return to IRS, but it’s always good to double check everything before you hit the ‘Transmit to IRS’ button.
