We're Accepting 2290 Returns Before The IRS

The 2290 season is officially here! Usually, the IRS begins accepting returns on July 1st, but since that's a Saturday they won't let you file until the next business day,  Monday, July 3rd.

However, you don't have to wait, because you can file your 2290 with ExpressTruckTax tomorrow, on July 1st. This means you can go ahead and get your 2290 out of the way so you can enjoy your July 4th holiday!

Important: But why wait until tomorrow? Today, June 30th, is the last day to pre-file with ExpressTruckTax. It's also the last day to get 10% off with the PROMOCODE: PREFILE17 for a single truck and PROMOCODE: PREFILE25 for 2-24 trucks.

The sooner you file then the sooner your 2290 return will be processed, approved, or rejected depending on IRS volume. So, we encourage you to file as soon as possible with ExpressTruckTax to beat the rush. We also have a few reminders for you to keep in mind as you prepare to file.

HVUT 2290 Reminders


- If you own a heavy vehicle with a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more then you’re required by law to file your HVUT Form 2290 in order to get a copy of your stamped Schedule 1, which serves as your proof of payment. You must file for all taxable highway motor vehicles that are required to be registered in your name under state, District of Columbia, Canadians, or Mexican law. 

- For new vehicles, your Form 2290 is due on the last day of the month after your first use month. For example, if you first use your new truck in October then your 2290 would be due on November 31st. Then you will renew it annually by the August 31st deadline. Your schedule 1 for the previous tax period will expire on June 30th.

- In order to complete your 2290 Form you need your business name, and address (your personal details will work if you’re a sole proprietor), and EIN (Employer Identification Number). For your vehicle you’ll need your first use month, VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), taxable gross weight, and be sure to include if your vehicle was used for any special purposes such as logging or agricultural uses. 

- Suspended vehicles must be included when you file. A suspended vehicle is one that is expected to be used for 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles). Suspended or credit vehicles also include ones that were destroyed, stolen, or sold.

- You have to file your Form 2290 and you have to pay your HVUT to the IRS. Your payment options include direct debit or electronic funds withdrawal (EFW), EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System) or check or money order. 

- You can file over the phone! Just give TSNAmerica a call at 803.386.0320 to have a US-based representative file your 2290 for you, over the phone. That’s right, you can handle your 2290 with one phone call. As a result, you’ll receive a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 via email in about 15 minutes.
