Highway motor vehicles weighing 55,000 pounds or more are subject to the heavy highway tax.

Online 2290 filing is the best option. The IRS recommends filing 2290 Form 2019 online because of the speed with which they can approve heavy highway tax submissions.

What You Need To Know About The 40th Annual I-80 Trucker Jamboree

0
It's been a busy summer with many miles under your belt, and many more to go, but if you find yourself passing through Iowa then the time is NOW to take a load off at the I-80 Trucker Jamboree!

To ensure that we "Keep America Trucking" it is important to stay energized while on the road and take a well-deserved break when needed.

Come celebrate with dozens of customized rigs and hundreds of fellow American truckers at the “World’s Largest Truckstop.”

Here's what you need to know about the 40th Annual I-80 Trucker Jamboree if you're attending this year or plan to attend in the future.


What You Need To Know About The 40th Annual I-80 Trucker Jamboree

This three-day event will also include a Super Truck Beauty Contest, an Iowa pork chop cookout, an antique truck display, more than 175 exhibits, two fireworks shows, and a Trucker Olympics.

This event goes all the way back to 1979 and is still going strong as a great place to celebrate the American trucker and learn about the trucking industry. While this event is a good time and an educational experience, at the end of the day, it is a way to thank you (the truckers of America) for all that you do to keep America trucking.

If you find yourself elsewhere in the country and can’t make it, you should still put the Iowa 80 Truckstop on your list of places to visit! 
It is not only the largest truck stop in the world, it practically has everything a trucker on the road could ask for. They even have a 24-hour Dogomat where you can get your travel buddy groomed and ready to hit the road.

You can also get a haircut, go to the dentist, watch a movie, and so much more all from this one truck stop.

The Most Common IRS Form 2290 Mistakes to Avoid

0
Driver finding mistakes on his filed IRS Form 2290
There’s nothing worse than having to file your annual truck taxes twice. 😐

Avoid IRS Form 2290 mistakes this season when you e-file 2290 with ExpressTruckTax.

We’ve got a few tips to make the process as painless as possible and save you from any unnecessary corrections.

Filing IRS Form 2290 before the deadline will save you tons of money, but mistakes could keep you from meeting the Form 2290 for 2019 due date and cost you a sweet penny.

Avoid frustration and confusion by double checking some information that commonly delays IRS Form 2290 approval.

The Most Common IRS Form 2290 Mistakes to Avoid

5 Common IRS Form 2290 Mistakes

 Here are some things to be extra cautious about when filing your 2290 Form.

Common IRS Form 2290 Mistakes















How to Check These Areas For Error


  • 1) EIN (Employer Identification Number) or VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)

A unique EIN is assigned to each company operating in the US as a form of identification for tax purposes. Your EIN should be a string of 9 numbers, presented in this format: 12-3456789.

Since this number looks similar to a social security number, filers often confuse the two, causing the IRS to reject the 2290 Tax Form.

Keep in mind that it takes 10 business days for the IRS to update its database with a new EIN. If you’re applying for a new EIN, do so at least a month before you e-file IRS 2290 to avoid delays.

Your VIN should be 17 characters long and include both numbers and letters. Check your VIN before submitting your 2290 Tax Form. If incorrect, your IRS Form 2290 will be rejected.

The best online tax filing is quick. Don’t waste unnecessary time with mistakes. When you e-file 2290, double check your Form 2290 for 2019 and ensure that your EIN and VIN are correct.

  • 2) First Used Month or Filing Year

When filing IRS Form 2290, make sure you use the correct filing year.

Note: If you’ve used an online filing service before, the drop-down menu could be set to a previous 2290 Tax Form file year. Double check!

Secondly, choose an accurate first used month.

The first used month is the month you first used the truck on the highway during the tax period, which runs from July 1 to June 30 of the next year. Your Truck Tax form is due on the last day of the month after your first used month.

This means if you first used your vehicle in July, as most drivers do during the tax season, then you will need to file your IRS 2290 Tax Form by August 31.

  • 3) Gross Taxable Weight

IRS Form 2290 tax calculations can be tricky, but don’t sweat it. At ExpressTruckTax, our system automatically calculates your owed tax amount. Leave all 2290 tax form math to us.

It’s important to find the best online tax filing service to save yourself time and money. ExpressTruckTax can help!

  • 4) Authorized Signatory Details

It's super easy to sign your IRS 2290 online. All you need is a 5-digit authorized signature code. Still, no matter how simple it sounds, please just… double check. 😬

  • 5) Business Name & Address

You'd be surprised at how many returns are rejected for this information being incorrect!

The wrong business name and address is one most common errors on the heavy vehicle use tax form 2290. Don’t let it happen to you!

Double check your business name and address before submitting your IRS Form 2290.

Why is it so Important to Avoid IRS 2290 Mistakes?

Even the simplest mistake on your IRS Form 2290 can cause serious problems. For starters, your 2290 Tax Form will definitely be rejected by the IRS.

This is a huge time waster and may cause you to miss the HVUT 2290 Tax Form Deadline.

If this happens and you miss the deadline, you’ll need to correct your Form 2290 and file again, attaching an explanation to show reasonable cause for the delay of your heavy vehicle use tax.

There’s no guaranteeing that your statement will be accepted by the IRS, and if it’s not, you’ll face heavy IRS 2290 Tax Form penalties.

The penalty for failing to file IRS Form 2290 by August 31st is 4.5% of the total tax amount owed. Plus, you still have to pay the base HVUT 2290 amount you owe.
In addition, this penalty will increase monthly for up to 5 months, with an additional .54% interest added for each month that it remains unpaid.

Save yourself while you can and double check your Form 2290 before you e-file 2290 online.

How To Get Prepared For Upcoming Truck Inspections

0
DOT inspection CVSA inspector during Operation Safe Driver Week 2019 One thing we like to say around here is "stay ready, so you don't have to get ready."

We are halfway through 2019 and there are still a couple truck inspections and important dates you have to make it through, like the 2019 Form 2290 filing deadline

The CVSA's Operation Safe Driver Week 2019 and the CVSA's Brake Safety Week are both coming up fast.

If you're still operating your rig, it is safe to say you survived the CVSA Roadcheck 2019.

If you have been in the industry you know that the truck inspections don't stop there. Here are a few upcoming truck inspection dates you need to be aware of.


Upcoming Truck Inspection Dates


CVSA's Operation Safe Driver Week 2019: (July 14-20, 2019)

The first truck inspection date you should remember is the CVSA's Operation Safe Driver Week 2019. This inspection will last from July 14th to July 20th.

Each year this inspection puts focus on some form of dangerous driver behavior and this year there is an emphasis on speeding. 

During this week, North American jurisdictions will be promoting and endorsing the message: "Late won't kill you, speeding will"

Speeding is the one thing we have all been found guilty of from time to time, so this comes as a forewarning to every trucker with a led foot, who may get stopped.

The CVSA will partner with law enforcement personnel to issue warnings and/or citations to drivers operating a commercial vehicle or passenger vehicle, driving at unlawful speeds.


Previous Operation Safe Driver Week Results

During the CVSA's Operation Safe Driver Week last year, there was nearly 17,000 passenger vehicle pulled over alone for speeding and almost 2,000 commercial vehicles. In addition, 17 commercial vehicles were given a citation for driving too fast for the weather conditions.

CVSA's Brake Safety Week 2019: (September 15-21, 2019)

Yellow semi truck speeding during 2019 CVSA Operation Safe Driver week 2019
The CVSA's Brake Safety Week will be taking place from September 15th through 21st. Roadside safety truck inspections will be conducted on commercial vehicles throughout North American jurisdictions. 

Any vehicle found with critical brake violations, or other critical violations, will not be able to travel until they are up to protocol.  

Any commercial vehicle that passes the truck inspection during the CVSA Brake Safety Week 2019 will receive a CVSA decal to identify them as such. 

Alongside the truck inspection, law enforcement will also be doing outreach and bringing awareness to the importance of proper brake safety.

Important Dates To Prepare For 

ExpressTruckTax's strives to be proactive. That is why our goal is to get you prepared early for the upcoming CVSA truck inspections, the 2019 Form 2290 deadline, and HVUT payment.

When you file your Form 2290 with ExpressTruckTax your stamped Schedule 1 will be sent to you within minutes. After using the ExpressTruckTax step-by-step method you are good to go until July of 2020!

Pay Your HVUT Your Way On Your Time

0
Computer making an online paymentYou've taken the time to e file, before the start of the Form 2290 2019 tax season, now you are wondering what comes next. We have worked alongside the IRS for years to ensure you always come out on top. ExpressTruckTax allows you to pay your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax, also known as HVUT 2019, the way you want. It's your money, so who are we to tell you how to use it?

Payments We Accept

ExpressTruckTax accepts HVUT 2019 payments via credit card, debit card, direct debit, electronic funds withdrawal (EFW), Electronic Federal Tax Payment System - EFTPS online, or by check/money order. Making your IRS 2290 payment is easy with ExpressTruckTax. There are options for your IRS 2290 payment that aren't offered everywhere, so having us in your corner this year is the correct way to e file 2290.

Credit or Debit Card

We are happy to say that we are the only e file Form 2290 filing solution partnered with Official Payments, leading electronic payment solution for the IRS, states, municipalities, and colleges/universities nationwide.

ExpressTruckTax clients are privileged to pay 2290 with credit card or debit card.
The 2019-20 tax year is the second year that truckers can pay 2290 online. Heavy Use Vehicle Tax online payments with the pay 2290 with credit card method are not supported by all e file 2290 filing solutions, so we are proud to be amongst those leading the way.

Direct Debit or Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW)

When you use this method you are authorizing the IRS to debit your owed amount from your account. This method requires you to provide your bank account number and routing.

It is important to double check the account information to avoid possible penalties for late payment. The IRS typically debits accounts within 24-48 hours, so double check the amount in your account to avoid your payment being declined.

Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) 

ExpressTruckTax clients can pay 2290 online with the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS). EFTPS online is a system of paying federal taxes electronically using the Internet or phone. EFTPS online allows users to schedule payments, in advance. When this method is selected you will automatically be directed to the EFTPS online website. It can take up to 10 business days to create an account, so for those choosing to wait until the last minute this method may not be the best idea.

Check or Money Order

If choosing to make an IRS 2290 payment with a check or money order there is a certain procedure you will have to follow and pay close attention to. 

We've listed the steps for your HVUT 2019 convenience:

  • Make your check or money order payable to the United States Treasury. Write your name, address, EIN, 'IRS Form 2290', and date (as entered in box 3) on your payment.
  • Detach your 2290-V and send it with your payment. If you filed electronically, do not submit your Form 2290 or stamped Schedule 1 with your payment voucher. (*Do not staple your payment voucher, payment, or Form 2290 together.)

Send your payment and the 2290-V voucher to:

Internal Revenue Service,
P.O. Box 804525,
Cincinnati, OH 45280-4525


We Got You Covered

Whether you choose to make an online payment for your HVUT 2019 using EFTPS online, pay 2290 with credit card or debit card, go the direct debit route, try the Electronic Funds Withdrawal payment method, or choose the classic check or money order method, ExpressTruckTax has you covered.

Check The Fuel For Your Vehicle

The engine cooling system is important, especially in sweltering temperatures. Your body can be affected by heat exhaustion, what makes you think your rig can't?! Before beginning your trip make sure your system has both enough antifreeze and water.

Checking on the coolant of your vehicle is important in making sure your vehicle isn’t overheating. Coolant that is too hot can lead to engine failure and even a fire.


Slow It Down And Take A Break

Your vehicle is more vulnerable to overheating when you are traveling at high speeds. There is extra stress on both the tires and engine being applied.
  • Drive slow and remember to take frequent breaks to let the system cool down.
  • Tire blowouts are more common in hot weather. Air pressure also increases with temperature. Allowing the tires to cool off every few hours or ideally every 100 miles reduce the risk of not only blowouts but fire as well.
