Exceeding the Mileage Limit: E-filing Form 2290 Amendments

‘Tis the season to E-file Form 2290 Amendments! Everyone recently E-filed the 2290 yearly renewal, and now, some are noticing errors or changes that need to be made.

We’ve already covered how to speedily E-file an amendment for increased gross vehicle weight. Today, the saga continues!

The second kind of 2290 Amendment is for suspended vehicles that exceed the mileage use limit. Suspended vehicles (Filed as Category W) can only travel up to 5,000 miles during the tax year (7,500 miles or fewer for agricultural vehicles).



This limit applies to the total miles the vehicle drives on public highways during the tax year, regardless of the number of owners.

So what happens when that trip odometer reaches 5,001? Well, that means it’s time to pull over, whip out your tablet or laptop, and quickly E-file an amendment with ExpressTruckTax!

Here’s how to E-file a 2290 Amendment in 10 minutes or less:



*Note: Be sure to E-file your amendment by the last day of the month following the month in which you exceeded the mileage limit.





Step 1: Get Situated

-Returning users login or new users create an account.
-Click “Start” under Form 2290 Amendments.
-Choose the kind of amendment. Click start under “Mileage Exceeded.”

Step 2: Vehicle Info

-Choose to amend a return E-filed with us, or choose to amend a return that was paper-filed or E-filed elsewhere.
-Select the correct tax year, the vehicle’s first-used month, & the month the mileage limit was exceeded.
-Next choose the vehicle you are filing the amendment for, OR if you haven’t filed with us, enter the vehicle’s information like the VIN, taxable gross weight, and whether it’s used for logging.
-Finally, hit “save” or “save & add another” if you’re E-filing an amendment for more than one vehicle.

Step 3: Finish it!

-Voila! The prorated tax is calculated for you! And there was much rejoicing!
-Click “next,” and enter your method of payment. The IRS accepts Direct Debit (EFW), EFTPS, and check or money order. (No credit/debit cards.)
-Almost there, just review your info one last time while our system performs the Instant Audit to make sure everything is correct.
-Finally, securely transmit your amendment to the IRS & watch in amazement as your new stamped Schedule 1 is emailed to you in minutes!
