IRS Form 2290 for 2019

Tips for Filing IRS 2290 Fast

File IRS Form 2290 fast by having your information prepared before you start. The best way to reduce IRS 2290 penalties is by filing as soon as possible, which requires some information.

You’ll need: 

-  Business Name & Address
-  EIN (Employer Identification Number)
-  VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)
-  Gross Taxable Weight
-  Authorized Signatory Details

Remember, an EIN is required for filing Form 2290 2019, you can no longer use your social security number.

You’ll also want to double-check your VIN number to avoid delays. It should be 17 characters long, including both numbers and letters.

IRS Form 2290 Penalties

It’s critical that you file Form 2290 for 2019 by the end of the day to avoid heavy highway tax filing penalties.

If you file IRS 2290 or pay your HVUT after the 2290 deadline, you’ll face these penalties:

-  If you don’t file IRS Form 2290 for 2019 by the deadline, you’ll have to pay a penalty of 4.5% of the total HVUT 2290 tax amount due. This will increase monthly for up to 5 months.

-  If you don’t pay your heavy highway tax by the deadline, you’ll have to pay a penalty of 0.5% of your HVUT 2290 tax amount, with additional interest of 0.54% per month.

Why You Need to File Form 2290 for 2019 TODAY

0
Truckers are approaching the Form 2290 for 2019 deadline.
The Form 2290 due date is getting close!

By now, there’s tons of content floating around about Form 2290 for 2019…

There are plenty of different providers offering promo codes for filling, and various articles containing IRS 2290 instructions.

So, what’s the truth? We’ve got you covered with everything you need to know about Form 2290 2019 to file successfully, avoid IRS penalties, and keep the money in your pocket.

The 101 On Form 2290 2019

What’s the Deal With the Form 2290 Due Date?

If you’ve been in the industry for a while, you’re probably used to the August 31st Form 2290 due date, but there’s another date being tossed around this year.

Because August 31, 2019 is a Saturday, and the following business day is Labor Day, the IRS will officially accept 2290 Form 2019 up until September 3, 2019.

Unfortunately, that extension doesn’t change the fact that the IRS and the postal office will be closed Monday, September 2nd.

Therefore, it is critical that you file your Form 2290 2019 TODAY.

Seriously, don’t put it off. Which brings me to… IRS penalties.

If you file after September, 3rd (which I hope you don’t), you’ll face a penalty of 4.5% of your Form 2290 2019 tax amount, with additional interest of 0.54% per month.

If you filed your Form 2290 for 2019 but did not pay your tax amount by the deadline, that penalty will be 0.5% of your total Form 2290 2019 tax amount, plus 0.54% interest per month.

You may avoid penalties if you include a reasonable explanation for filing IRS Form 2290 for 2019 after the 2290 due date, but don’t count on it.

What IRS 2290 Instructions do I Need to Start?

Filing is simple, but before you start, gather all the information you’ll need to file 2290 Form 2019. It’ll speed up your process.

Here’s how to know if you need to file:

You’ll need to file if your vehicle has a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more and is driven on public highways.

You can claim an exemption or suspension for your vehicle if it:

-  Was used 5,000 highway miles or less during the tax period
-  Is an agricultural vehicle and was used 7,500 miles or less during the tax period
-  Was stolen or destroyed during the tax period
-  Was sold during the tax period

Here’s what you need to file:

-  Your EIN (Employer Identification Number) –– NOT your Social Security Number
-  Your business name and its address
-  The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). Hint: it’ll be 17 characters.
-  Authorized Signatory Details
-  Vehicle’s Gross Taxable Weight (how much it weighs when fully equipped for service, minus the weight of you and any loads).

Next, we’ll talk about how to file.

What’s the Fastest Way to File?

Now you’re probably wondering, “Ok, how can I get this sh*t over with??”

The fastest way to file Form 2290 for 2019 is online. The fastest way to file Form 2290 for 2019 without breaking the bank, however, is with ExpressTruckTax.

Truck drivers hurry to file 2290 Form 2019 before the upcoming 2290 deadline.
The IRS Form 2290 deadline is almost here!

Let’s get started.

How To File 2290 Form 2019 Fast

Getting Started

Before you begin your 2290 filing, here’s some information you’ll want to collect to speed up the 2290 filing process.

- Your EIN (Employer Identification Number)

You must have an EIN to file. If you need an EIN, apply online with the IRS, or call TSNAmerica at (803) 386-0320.

- Your business name and business address
Enter business information at the beginning of the 2290 filing process.

- Your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)
This number should be 17 characters, including both numbers and letters.

- Authorized signatory details

Sign your IRS Form 2290 online with a unique 5-digit signature PIN.

- Your vehicle’s gross taxable weight

The weight of your vehicle when fully equipped for service, minus the weight of you and the load. Find this number on your cab card or a sticker inside the door of your cab. (The number on the door may be outdated, so use the cab card number if you have it.)

- Payment information

ExpressTruckTax offers multiple HVUT 2290 payment options, including credit card, direct debit, EFW (Electronic Funds Withdrawal), and EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System).

You can also mail the IRS your highway tax 2290 payment via check or money order.

Form 2290 Filing Tips

Filing 2290 Form 2019 doesn’t have to be a hassle. In fact, with ExpressTruckTax, you can file IRS 2290 in under 20 minutes.

However, if an IRS 2290 mistake is made, the IRS will reject your form, forcing you to re-file.

To avoid this, ExpressTruckTax will run an instant error check on your highway tax 2290 before filing.

Also, if you’ve filed with us before, your information will be saved, further reducing the chance of error.

If you do end up making a mistake, ExpressTruckTax offers free VIN corrections and IRS 2290 amendments.

Can’t pay your HVUT (heavy highway vehicle use tax) amount right now? Don’t worry. The penalty for failing to pay your highway tax 2290 is lower than the penalty for failing file. File now, pay HVUT 2290 later.

File 2290 Form 2019 before the upcoming IRS 2290 filing deadline.

The Most Important Remix of Old Town Road Has Arrived

0

How many times do you think Lil Nas X can remix “Old Town Road?” We hope it’s a lot.

Rather than waiting for an unlikely HVUT 2290 remix, we took matters into our own hands.

Ladies and gents, boys and girls, grab your cowboy hats and saddle up because we’re about to take a trip to Old Town Rock Hill.


The Most Important Remix of Old Town Road Has Arrived



Why “Old Town Road?” & Other Fun Facts

It’s no secret - the Form 2290 for 2019 deadline is approaching.

You must file Form 2290 for 2019 to stay compliant with heavy highway tax 2290 and receive your Schedule 1.
We have the perfect HVUT 2290 solution, but how can we spread the word?

One day, the sales team upstairs was helping 2290 Form 2019 filers complete their HVUT 2290 heavy highway tax 2290 when they noticed they were hearing the same song over and over.

It was May, and “Old Town Road” was blowing up the radio, quickly becoming one of the biggest hits in the nation.

We were constantly reminded of the tune, both hearing it in the office and seeing the unique flags lining the streets outside, welcoming us every day to Old Town Rock Hill.

It was Amber, the Director of Transportation Products, who connected the dots with a plan.

“We see those flags every day when we come into the office to help people file taxes. I realized we’d been given a unique opportunity to relate to our customers.”
Transforming 2290 Form 2019 from a headache to a simple process is our overarching mission.

Creating a remix of “Old Town Road” would help us convey that taxes don’t have to be boring.

“I picked up the idea and ran,” says Caitlyn, our Digital Marketing Content Creator.
Thus began a team effort to create a remix of “Old Town Road” dedicated to reminding you to hammer down and file your taxes.


Behind the Scenes of Our Old Town Road Remix

From the start, we knew this HVUT 2290 Form 2019 remix of “Old Town Road” would rely on collaboration.

Our Marketing Team created lyrics for the remix and Taylor, our Content Marketing Specialist, contacted her cousin, the owner of Rich Game Stables in Matthews, NC.

It was all hands on deck. Cardboard trucks were built and painted. Paint was spilled and shoes were destroyed. That’s how it goes in showbiz. 🤷

We definitely faced our challenges. Mixing the music to produce the remix of “Old Town Road” was beyond our technical skills, but we persevered for the sake of 2290 Form 2019 filing.

Even our handmade trucks survived South Carolina heat just long enough for footage before its glue melted and they collapsed.

The Product That Inspired It All

ExpressTruckTax is an IRS-authorized heavy highway tax 2290 Form 2019 e-filing provider created to make filing your taxes easy.

Life on the go can be chaotic. With ExpressTruckTax, you can file Form 2290 for 2019 fast.

What You Need to Know About EINs And 2290 Form 2019

0
New owner operator getting his trucking business EIN number
Attention all truckers! The Heavy Vehicle Use Tax season is barreling at us at full speed! No use trying to jump out of the way. Your only option to avoid being run over by the IRS is to file your HVUT 2290 before the deadline. Here is what you need to know about EINs and 2290 Form 2019.

What You Need to Know About EINs And 2290 Form 2019

Before we get into pre-filing or filing your IRS Form 2290, let's go over a critical piece of information you will need to have. As an owner-operator, you are required to have an employer identification number, or more commonly known as an EIN. It is used by the IRS to identify your trucking business. EINs are assigned to companies operating in the United States to identify them for tax reporting purposes.

What is an EIN Number?

Your trucking business’s EIN will be a string of nine digits, similar to your Social Security Number, but they can be easily distinguished because of their format (EIN: 12-3456789 SSN:123-456-789). Although this number is labeled as identification for “employers,” your trucking business is still required to have one.

An EIN number can also be referred to as a Federal Tax Identification Number or Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN Number).

What is the Use of an EIN Number?

You will use an EIN or Tax Identification Number on trucking licenses, permits, and tax returns, as well as any other forms or applications that require you to file under your trucking business’s IRS number. You will also need an EIN to open a trucking business bank account. I highly suggest this so you can keep your personal and business account separate.





How do I Apply for an EIN?

If you are transitioning from a company driver to an Owner-Operator, applying for an EIN number is a relatively simple process. It will take you less than 10 minutes to request your EIN number over the phone with our sister product, TSNAmerica.

However, once you apply, please keep in mind, it will take approximately two weeks for it to be active in the IRS database.

Your EIN Number is a unique code that never expires. However, you may need a new EIN if you declare bankruptcy, take on new partners, or if you purchase or inherit another existing business.

IRS Form 2290 And Your EIN Number

When it comes to the information on your IRS Form 2290 such as your business name and address, it will need to match what the IRS has on file, or it could be rejected. You can see if your information matches what the IRS has on file by contacting the IRS directly. IRS Customer Service Phone Number: (800)829-4933

How to File 2290 Online?

Why wait when you can go ahead and knock out your 2290 Form 2019 today? Go ahead and file 2290 online with ExpressTruckTax now. Simply follow our step-by-step filing guide to complete your IRS 2290 Form instantly. As a result, your IRS Form 2290 will be transmitted directly to the IRS and you will get your Stamped Schedule 1 when the IRS starts accepting returns on July 1st.

If you are currently on the run and don’t have the time to go online to file, you can file over the phone with our sister product, TSNAmerica. Give them a call and an outstanding US-based representative will file your 2290 Form 2019 for you! No need to pay when you file just to be sure to do so before August 31st.




File Today And Be Set Until July 2019!
