Did You Get a Letter From the IRS About HVUT 2290?

Truck driver receiving a letter from the IRS regarding his HVUT 2290 tax, stating that he didn't pay 2290.
You thought you were done with the 2290 tax… until you received a letter from the IRS about non-payment.

If you filed sometime close to the 2290 tax due date, you might’ve received a notice from the IRS asking you to pay 2290.

If you already filed your heavy use tax form online and paid your 2290 tax, this can be frustrating and confusing. Don’t sweat it just yet.

Here’s what it means.

IRS Letter Regarding HVUT 2290

Why did I receive a letter?

This happens every year. It could mean you still need to pay 2290 tax, or, it could just be a side-effect of the high volume of returns that the IRS receives close to the Form 2290 due date.

Sometimes, IRS systems don’t communicate information very efficiently, especially when they’re overloaded with last-minute HVUT 2290 filers.

What Should I Do?

Most likely, the IRS will send you a follow-up letter in a few weeks telling you that the first letter was an error, but, before assuming, double check that your 2290 tax amount was paid in full.

First, check to see how you chose to pay your heavy use tax to the IRS. Did you pay 2290 with credit card, debit card, EFW, EFTPS, check, or money order?

If you chose EFW, or Electronic Funds Withdrawal, check you bank statement to ensure that the funds were successfully drafted from your account.

If they were, you’re all set! You paid HVUT 2290 tax successfully. However, if the amount hasn’t been removed, contact us. There may have been an error entering your account information.

Secondly, if you filed with ExpressTruckTax and chose to pay 2290 with credit or debit card, make sure you made that payment separately. This payment would’ve been made outside of ExpressTruckTax through Official Payments after you completed your filing. 

If you forgot to pay your 2290 tax through Official Payments, do so as quickly as possible.
