E-filing Excise Taxes Now Available For Heavy Highway Vehicles

Although it has been a long year for those in the Trucking and Transportation Industry, It is now possible to transmit returns to the IRS through Express Truck Tax. The process for filing Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Returns was briefly interrupted as the legislation that controlled the tax itself nearly expired. Fortunately, due to urges from various congressmen and President Obama himself, the legislation was extended. Had Congress let the legislation expire, there would have been a shutdown of any government funded Transportation jobs. Although many industry experts agree that new legislation is needed, this extension serves as a quick fix the much worse possibility of all government transportation projects being shut down.

This change resulted in a later filing period for 2011 - 2012. Instead of filing by the month of August, the filing period for the 2011-2012 tax period begins on November 1st and ends on November 30th 2011. The IRS did not even begin accepting these forms until November 1st. With a much shorter filing period, those needing to file a Form 2290 will greatly benefit from eFiling this return. The IRS has been steadily pushing people to eFile since last year. The IRS is no longer sending paper forms to those needing to file. They even admit that the eFiling process is easier for them and saves the government money as opposed to paper filing.

The Form 2290 is incredibly easy to eFile with Express Truck Tax. The whole process can be completed in a matter of minutes. Once the 2290 Form has been submitted to the IRS, a Stamped Schedule 1 will be sent from the IRS directly to the taxpayer through Express Truck Tax. The form will arrive as a pdf attachment in an email.

To fill out the Form 2290 online, all you will need is the basic business information such as the EIN, VIN, and the vehicle weight. The IRS accepts several different payment options including: Electronic Funds Withdrawal, EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System), and also check or money order. Each of these options is fairly simple. Electronic Funds Withdrawal is a very quick and immediate process, just provide your bank account number as well as your routing number, and the IRS will electronically withdraw the payment.
