Last Minute Tips for E-Filing Form 2290

0

ExpressTruckTax.com is the quickest, easiest, and best value for filing your Form 2290 (Heavy Truck Use Tax) online with the IRS. The normal August 31st deadline has been extended until Tuesday Septmeber 3, 2013, due Due to the fact the the 31st falls on a Saturday and Monday is Labor Day.  Even though the deadline has been extended, we encourage to to file now and here are a few points to keep in mind while E-Filing.

• E-file your 2290 returns with Expresstrucktax.com
• 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 EFTPS.gov.
  • Check/Money Order

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
Expresstrucktax.com 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.

We are always available to help if needed. To E-File the Form 2290 online now, go to ExpressTruckTax.com or contact our Express Tax Support Center in Rock Hill, SC at 704-234-6005 or email us at support@ExpressTruckTax.com.  We have Spanish Support too!

Penalties For Not Filing Form 2290 HVUT

0
The heavy vehicle use tax or HVUT is a fee assessed annually on heavy vehicles operating on public highways at registered gross weights equal to or exceeding 55,000 pounds.The current tax period is July 1, 2013-June 30, 2013.  The annual deadline to file for all vehicles is August 31st, but since the 31st is on a Saturday and Monday is Labor Day, the deadline has been extended to Tuesday, September 3, 2013.  

The penalty for not filing the IRS Form 2290 by the deadline is equal to 4.5% of total tax due.  This amount is assessed on a monthly basis up to five months. Those who choose not to make their HVUT payment also face an additional monthly 0.5% of the tax due penalty. Additional interest charges of 0.54% per month accrue as well. Within 5 months of not filing and paying the HVUT tax, the HVUT liability that was originally $550 will be over $700.  In addition to the monetary federal penalties, states suspend the registrations of vehicles for which proof of HVUT payment has not been provided. So not only will the taxpayer owe more money, they will also be unable to renew their registrations, so they will be unable to work. HVUT evasion penalties can even be as severe as fines and incarceration.

There are a few instances where a vehicle is exempt from paying the HVUT tax, even if most of those instances, a Form 2290 is required to be filed even if no tax is due.  You can find detailed information on the IRS site at The Trucking Tax Center.

You can E-File your Form 2290 quickly and easily at ExpressTruckTax.com and receive your Schedule 1 within minutes.  Your Schedule 1 serves as proof of payment for your HVUT.  For more information or to get started today, visit ExpressTruckTax.com or contact our Express Tax Support Center in Rock Hill, SC at 704-234-6005 or email us at support@ExpressTruckTax.com.  We have Spanish Support too!

EIN Necessary To File Form 2290

0
The IRS requires ANY taxpayer filing a Form 2290 to use an EIN or Employer Identification Number when filing. The IRS expressly prohibits the use of social security numbers for the filing of 2290.
We receive many questions from taxpayers who believe they're not a business - simply a driver. In these cases, you still need to have a business such as a sole proprietorship.

To get an  Employer Identification Number from the IRS, you can follow one of the following options:
  • a. Apply Online: The customer can obtain an EIN immediately by visiting IRS Online EIN application
  • b. Apply over the phone: Taxpayers can obtain an EIN immediately by calling the Business & Specialty Tax Line at (800) 829-4933. The hours of operation are 7:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. local time, Monday through Friday. An assistor takes the information, assigns the EIN, and provides the number to an authorized individual over the telephone. Note: International applicants must call (215) 516-6999 (Not a toll-free number).
  • c. Apply Fax: Fax the completed form SS-4 to IRS. If you provide a return fax number, IRS will send a fax to that number within 4 days with a new EIN.
  • d. Apply through Paid Provider: You can use a CPA or a process agent, like Truck Services of North America and let them take care of preparing and filing the return for you.
  • e. Apply by Mail: This is the slowest way to get the EIN number. mail the completed Form SS-4 to the IRS. The address is listed on the form itself. This could take up to 4 weeks to get the EIN number.

NOTE: Remember, for the 2013-2014 HVUT tax year, the due date to file your Form 2290 is August 31, 2013. While you can get your EIN immediately, it can take the IRS up to 10 business days to update new EINs into their system. You cannot E-File your Form 2290 until your EIN is is the system, so you will want to get your EIN today to ensure you can file by the deadline!  

Once your EIN is in the IRS system or if you already have one, you can file your Form 2290 return and receive your Stamped Schedule 1 within minutes at ExpressTruckTax. To E-File Form 2290 online now, go to ExpressTruckTax.com or contact our Express Tax Support Center in Rock Hill, SC at 704-234-6005 or email us at support@ExpressTruckTax.com.  We have Spanish Support too!

How To Handle Overpaid Form 2290 Taxes

0
There are sometimes situations resulting in an “overpayment” of Heavy Vehicle Use Taxes, in which a credit is due.  This can occur if your vehicle is stolen, destroyed or if the vehicle did not exceed 5,000 miles (7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles) during the tax period.  Here we explain the process for claiming  IRS Form 2290, Highway Heavy Vehicle Use Tax credit for the following scenarios:
  • You can take credit for the vehicle if it was stolen, destroyed or sold before June 1 and not used during the remainder of the period, or
  • Used during the prior period 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles).

A credit, lower tax, exemption, or refund is not allowed for an occasional light or decreased load or a discontinued or changed use of the vehicle.  What that means is if you filed your Form 2290 at 80,000 lbs, but had occasions where you operated at a lower weight class, that will not qualify you for a credit.  If you used your vehicle for only a portion of the tax year, you will qualify for the credit IF you did not exceed 5,000 miles (7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles).  If you did travel more than 5,000 miles (7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles) then you will NOT qualify for the credit.

The credit for vehicles that were stolen, destroyed or sold during the tax year will be prorated based on the dates of the occurrence.  For vehicles sold, destroyed or stolen, you must include the VIN, taxable gross weight, and date of sale, accident or theft. The credit for the tax paid can be claimed on the next Form 2290 filed or the refund can be claimed on Form 8849.  You do not have to wait until the tax period ends.

The credit for low mileage vehicles you either qualify for it and you will get the full amount that you paid as a credit or you will not qualify and you will not get any portion of the credit.  This credit is never prorated. For vehicles that tax was paid and the vehicles were used 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles), the credit (or refund) cannot be claimed until the end of the tax period for which the initial tax was paid.  Even if you know at some point during the tax year that you will not exceed the 5,000 mile mark, you will not be able to claim the credit until the tax period ends, which is on June 30th.

The credit claimed cannot exceed the tax reported on IRS Form 2290. If this occurs, any excess credit must be claimed using Form 8849, Claim for Refund of Excise Taxes, and Schedule 6, Other Claims. When you use IRS Authorized E-File provider,  ExpressTruckTax to E-File HVUT Form 2290, if your credit exceeds the tax due, our program will automatically generate the Form 8849 for you.

For more information or to get started today, visit ExpressTruckTax.com or contact our Express Tax Support Center in Rock Hill, SC at 704-234-6005 or email us at support@ExpressTruckTax.com.  We have Spanish Support too!

HVUT Late Filing Penalties & Interest

0




Penalties can be incurred for failing to file Form 2290 returns or pay Heavy vehicle Use Taxes when they are due. There are also penalties for filing false or fraudulent returns. These penalties are imposed in addition to interest charges for late payments.

Penalties for HVUT non-compliance are costly to motor carriers. The penalty for failing to file IRS Form 2290 by August 31st is equal to 4.5% of total tax due, assessed on a monthly basis up to five months. Late filers not making an HVUT payment also face an additional monthly penalty equal to 0.5% of total tax due. Additional interest charges of 0.54% per month accrue as well.

Based on these rates, an HVUT liability that was originally $550 would climb to over $700 by the end of the five-month period of delinquency. In addition to these federal penalties, states will suspend the registrations of vehicles for which proof of HVUT payment has not been provided.

So avoid these penalties by E-Filing your Form 2290 today.  For more information or to get started, visit ExpressTruckTax.com or contact our friendly US Based Express Tax Support Center in Rock Hill, SC at 704-234-6005 or email us at support@ExpressTruckTax.com.  We have Spanish Support too!
