2290 Tax Calculator App: Our Crystal Ball for Your Business

It’s time to take the Manic out of your Monday!

Yes, the HVUT Form 2290 deadline is just THREE weeks away...

But there’s no reason to panic! ExpressTruckTax has a full arsenal of all the tools you need to get E-filed
and back on the road.

Last Monday we got a V.I.P. tour of the ExpressTruckTax Tablet app! Available for free download on your iPad or Android device, our new Tablet Apps are the fastest, most convenient way to E-file your HVUT–wherever you’re truckin’!

But we had to take it a step further (we’re always trying to one-up ourselves!). Seeing the plight of the common tax-payer, we developed another app with our Trucking Nation in mind: the 2290 Tax Calculator App!

It’s also available now for iPad and Android.

We all know the IRS expects prompt payment after E-filing your return. But this leaves little time to prepare your funds! With the Tax Calculator App, you can find out exactly how much heavy vehicle tax you’ll owe before you E-file, eliminating any last minute surprises–and preventing any tragic blows to your bank account!


So how does it work, exactly? You may hear the word “calculator” on a Monday morning and immediately sprint in the opposite direction. Normally, I’d say your instincts are sound, but have no fear! This app, like all of our products, does all of the calculating for you! All you have to do is enter your information, sit back, and watch the magic happen.

Let’s take a sneak peek…


  • Step 1: Select the first used month for the vehicles. Typically, this is July, the first month of the HVUT tax year, unless the vehicle is purchased later in the year. Based on the first used month, we'll tell you the due date to file. Then click "Next."






  • Step 2: Select the weight category, and then enter how many logging or non-logging vehicles you have in that weight category. Notice how the tax owed is automatically generated! No math for you!








  • Step 3: If you have more vehicles in a different weight category, simply click "Add Weight Category." Then add your logging and non-logging vehicles. Rinse and repeat until all of your trucks have been added.






  • Step 4: You're finished! The amount of tax owed has been calculated for you, and now you can prepare your funds for the real E-filing deal.
    Enter your email address, and we'll send you a short report with all of your vital tax details, so you won't forget come filing time.








  • Step 5: Of course, the most important step of all is to actually E-file your 2290 and securely transmit it to the IRS!

Whether you use the Tablet apps mentioned before or our website, you'll be E-filed in just 3 simple steps & 10 minutes or less! The industry leader in E-filing solutions, we not only offer the best value in the biz (just $9.90 for a single truck!), but we also throw in our USA-based Support Heroes!

If you're new to ExpressTruckTax, or if you'd just like to catch up, give the Support Heroes a shout! They can assist you in English, Spanish, & Russian! Just call 704.234.6005 or get 24/7 email assistance at support@expresstrucktax.com. We've got a full team of real, happy people eager to offer you their truck tax expertise!

So what are you waiting for? Start off the week on a high note, and get those truck taxes E-filed and out of the way! With three weeks left, it's never too early to take the plunge!
