About the Internal Revenue Service Form 2290

Each Year, excise taxes must be paid for Heavy Highway Vehicles used on public roads. This tax is commonly referred to as HVUT (Heavy Vehicle Use Tax) or simply Truck Taxes.

This federal excise tax is imposed through the IRS Form 2290 on an annual basis. This IRS Form can be E-Filed in just minutes to complete this requirement. Once it is filed, the taxpayer will receive a Stamped Schedule 1. This is required by State DMVs in order to register heavy highway vehicles.

If you have not ever E-Filed a tax returns before, there is no need to worry. The E-Filing process is actually easier than paper filing. We at also have a dedicated team of customer support professionals available to help you over the phone, email, or online chat (available in English or Spanish). All you need to file this IRS Form is your EIN (Employee Identification Number), Address, Phone Number, VIN’s (Vehicle Identification Numbers), and Gross Vehicle Weight and our program will take care of the rest.

Another great service that Express Truck Tax provides is the option to instantly notify your Contracting, Leasing, or Trucking, etc. Company the Schedule 1 as soon as it is accepted by the IRS. This process helps eliminate steps for the person filing. Many Trucking Companies require some kind of proof that their driver filed their Heavy Vehicle Use Taxes properly.

Instead of waiting for hours or up to 6 weeks for the IRS to stamp your schedule 1 and send it back to you, Express Truck Tax will get your Stamped Schedule 1 within minutes of filing. When you login to the site, you can enter the information for the Form 2290, and Express Truck Tax will then create a Schedule 1 based on that information. That form will be sent to the IRS electronically, and they will then send the stamped Schedule 1 back to Express Truck Tax, who will then automatically email the file to the taxpayer.

This document can also be faxed as well as emailed to the taxpayer as soon as the IRS processes the form. The form will be transmitted with a watermark as well as an IRS E-File logo since the document will not be physically stamped. When ExpressTruckTax sends the Stamped Schedule 1 to the taxpayer, it will be sent as a pdf attachment. Although the form will not be physically stamped, the official E-File watermark serves as an official IRS stamp.
