ExpressTruckTax Offers Free VIN Corrections

0

Let’s face it, paperwork isn’t the most interesting thing in the world. Heck, it isn’t even close to being considered the 2nd most interesting thing in the world! When we sit down to fill out forms sometimes our minds wander and we accidentally enter in typos and mistakes. When this happens to you, it’s not your fault and you shouldn’t be punished. That’s why ExpressTruckTax offers free VIN corrections.

What’s My VIN?


Your VIN is your vehicle identification number. It’s a 17 character long number that throws in some letters and the font is usually small and hard to see. Therefore, unfortunately, it’s incredibly easy to make typos when entering your VIN on your form 2290. If you put the incorrect VIN on your 2290 then there will be hassles and headaches at the DMV later.

ExpressTruckTax wants to save you that trouble, that’s why we work with the IRS as a trusted and secure source to offer free VIN corrections and to get you your Stamped Schedule 1 in a matter minutes. However, the VIN correction isn’t the only free correction we offer, you can make any correction to your form 2290 at any time.

Also, e-filing a VIN correction is incredibly simple. All you need to do is create an account and click “Create a Return then click the ‘2290 amendment’ option to complete your free VIN correction.

You can either make a VIN correction for a return filed with ExpressTruckTax or make a VIN correction for returns created elsewhere or by paper. To put it simply, you can make 2290 corrections with ExpressTruckTax even if you didn’t e-file with us.

Then you simply fill out the VIN correction information and transmit your form the IRS. You can resubmit your forms as many times as necessary to make corrections and amendments for free. The next step is to relax because you’ll receive your updated Stamped Schedule 1 in a matter of minutes!

However, keep in mind that VIN corrections can only be made for taxable and suspended vehicles. They can’t be made for credit vehicles or for previously suspended vehicles. Also, when filing a free VIN correction you can’t combine it with credits that have been claimed on the same form.

Remember that the original form with the incorrect VIN on it must be paid for before you submit a correction or the IRS will assess penalties on top of the tax that you actually owe.

E-Filing With ExpressTruckTax


There’s no way around it, you have to file your taxes. Form 2290 and your IFTA returns are due every year, and they aren’t going anywhere. So, why not make the process of filing your taxes and returns incredibly easy with ExpressTruckTax?

When it comes to your form 2290 we offer step by step instructions on how to fill out the form, plus you’ll receive your Stamped Schedule 1 in a matter of minutes. You can also receive your Stamped Schedule 1 via text, email, and fax and submit free corrections.

With IFTA you can use our innovative tools for quickly entering your odometer readings, maintain your trip sheets and fuel records, accurately calculate your fuel tax and more. We provide everything you need to generate your IFTA calculations! 

Plus, we have an outstanding support team that’s always standing by to answer your questions. If you need any help please don’t hesitate to contact us via phone or email.

We'll Handle All Your E-Filing 2290 Needs

0

Tax season is barreling on down the highway, so buckle up, because it’s not stopping. A few IFTA deadlines like the 4th quarter IFTA report deadline have already passed, but more deadlines are on their way. If your first used month for your new vehicle was in January then your HVUT form 2290 is due by February 28th.

But wait, What’s HVUT Form 2290?


The IRS HVUT Form 2290 is for the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax and the form 2290 is what truckers need to fill out if they own a vehicle with a taxable gross weight of 55k pounds or more. Truckers are required to file this form online in order to receive an electronic copy of their stamped Schedule 1.

A Stamped Schedule 1 serves as proof of compliance with the HVUT. It’s used at DMVs so you can renew your tags, renew your registration for IFTA, IRP, or USR, and prove that you paid your taxes, which can be extremely helpful if you’re ever audited.

The money that you pay for this tax goes to the public roads. It’s for construction, to fix, and to maintain public highways that heavy vehicles carrying loads often frequent. Therefore it makes your job a little easier, by providing safe routes with paved roads and safe bridges. Plus, better roads have less wear and tear on your vehicle.

E-Filing Your HVUT with ExpressTruckTax


Now you have to file your HVUT Form 2209 on an annual basis per each vehicle that you own and qualifies for the tax. The tax is due for new vehicles the last day of the 2nd month after the month that the vehicle is first used. Then the tax needs to be renewed annually by August 31st.

ExpressTruckTax is a great option if you need to quickly file your form 2290 because it’s one of the cheapest. Each file is only $9.90. ExpressTruckTax is also extremely safe and secure, your information will be protected.

Now a cheap price doesn’t mean ExpressTruckTax skimps out of true value because ExpressTruckTax provides easy to follow instructions to help you quickly fill out your form 2290. Then you’ll receive your stamped Schedule within minutes via fax, text, or email. You’ll also be notified via text message when your stamped Schedule 1 is ready.

Plus, you aren’t alone. The ExpressTruckTax dedicated support team is always standing by to help. We’re more than happy to assist you with any questions that you may have, so please don’t hesitate to contact us via live chat, phone, or email.

Our 2290 tax calculator will make your tax filing process headache free because you can enter your information to instantly calculate how much HVUT you’ll owe. No complicated math or waiting is involved.

Also, at ExpressTruckTax we understand that accidents happen. If the IRS rejects your form we will notify you via email with notes as to why your form was rejected and instructions on how to correct your form. You can resubmit your form 2290 as many times as you need to.

Try ExpressTruckTax Today


Simply spend a minute or two creating your account to get started with your HVUT form 2290. You can see how easy and convenient our e-filing process is without being charged unless you actually file.

Exceeding the Mileage Limit: E-filing Form 2290 Amendments

0
E-Filing Form 2290 Amendments
E-Filing Form 2290 Amendments
As we move further away from 2290 deadline season, it becomes more clear that filers might need to make amendments, corrections, and changes to the 2290’s they’ve already filed.

Of course, we’re not going to cover all of those corrections that can be made in one post. As part of our ongoing discussion about e-filing Form 2290 Amendments, we’re focusing on what to do when you Exceed the Mileage Use Limit.

Mileage Limits on IRS Form 2290


Mileage use limit for a heavy vehicle on public highways is 5,000 miles (or) less (7,500 miles (or) less for agricultural vehicles). The mileage use limit applies to the total mileage a vehicle is on the road during a period, regardless of the number of owners.

Just like when we talked about VIN corrections, ExpressTruckTax has an option for those who exceed the mileage use limit.

Exceeding the Limit


What should you do when your suspended vehicles exceeds the mileage use limit?

It’s not unusual for a suspended vehicle to exceed its mileage use limit, which is why the IRS allows you to file an amendment if your vehicle exceeds the mileage use limit.

So how do you do it? Traditionally, you to need to calculate the tax on Form 2290, page 2, based on the month the vehicle was first used in the period. After that, you file the amended Form 2290 and Schedule 1 by the last day of the month following the month in which the mileage use limit was exceeded.

However, if you want to file your amendment fast, login to ExpressTruckTax.com, where it's easy to file a mileage limit amendment and accurately calculate the tax due to IRS. Best of all, you will get your Schedule 1 for the new claim within minutes.




If you’ve e-filed with us before, you can select that return from our system. We also accept new filers, as well.

If you have questions about e-filing a 2290 amendment, please call us at 704.234.6005 - we're here ready to answer your call in Rock Hill, SC, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

File HVUT Error Free with ExpressTruckTax
File HVUT Error Free with ExpressTruckTax
If there’s one thing we know about tax time, it’s how stressful it can be. With deadlines everywhere, it almost feels like you’re racing the clock to get everything done.

Which is why we also know, plenty of filers out there make mistakes. Sometimes it's the wrong vehicle identification number (VIN), which can go unnoticed until it’s too late.

Of course, sometimes you file and think everything is fine, only to find out your return has been rejected.

So what should you do? Well, at ExpressTruckTax, we make sure that our e-filing customers have a few safety lines in the IRS Form 2290 game.

Free VIN Corrections:


This is pretty straightforward - we have implemented a system that allows our current year e-filers to come back and file a FREE VIN correction. That’s right, free! Trust us, it’s a lot better than correcting your VIN at an IRS office.

If you didn’t file Form 2290, but you need to file a correction, it’s only a small fee using our system. Don’t make that mistake twice!

We also offer Form 2290 Amendments for increase in vehicle weight and suspended vehicles exceeding their mileage.

Audit Check BEFORE Filing


One of the most important features we offer at ExpressTruckTax is an audit check before you transmit Form 2290. Now, this “audit check” inspects your return for any major errors that can keep your return from being accepted.

By reviewing your errors before we transmit, you won’t have your return rejected right off the bat.

Free Re-Filing for Rejected Returns


Alright, so you messed up something BIG and it snick through the cracks. Don’t freak out—you can re-file any rejected returns with ExpressTruckTax.

Not bad, eh?

So when you go to e-file your HVUT IRS Form 2290 - are you gonna go with some run of the mill e-filer, or the premier e-filing solution?

The choice is clear if you ask us!

4 HVUT Errors You’ve Already Made

2
Sure, Heavy Vehicle Use Taxes aren’t due until August, but do you know the most common errors?

While we have audit and error checks built into ExpressTruckTax, there are always a some user-end errors you need to watch out for.

The last thing you want is for one to slip by the cracks and go unnoticed until it’s too late!

Hopefully you haven’t made any of these, but we will do our best to guide you through these troubled waters.

Your VIN Was Mistyped


Honestly, this is one of the most common errors we hear about. With vehicle identification numbers being a 17-digit string of characters, who can be blamed?

Since these codes are frequently entered wrong, we know that plenty of truckers have to deal with this.

Now, really this is between you and the IRS, because you might file with the wrong VIN and never know. Yeah, that’ll be bad if you need to present your schedule 1 to some aspect of the law.

And don’t forget, your VIN numbers will never contain an O, I, or Q, unless the truck is over 20 years old.

So if you entered the wrong VIN and filed with ExpressTruckTax, log back in and get a free VIN correction. If you didn’t file with us, you can still file for a VIN correction after paying a small fee.

You Are Paper Filing… Because It's the Stone Age


Sorry, we kid. We are a little gung-ho about e-filing, so we like to rag on paper every now and then.

But really, paper filing puts you and your trucking profession in unnecessary danger. The error rate on typical paper filing sits around 21%, while e-filing is less than 1%.

What other reasons should you e-file? I dunno, you hate doing paperwork by hand, and you’re not a mathematician. That counts for us, at least.

Plus you will get your stamped Schedule 1 in minutes.

You Don't Need a New 2290, You Paid on Your Old Truck


Oh yeah, you paid. For your last truck, not your new one!

Just because you have 2290s for your old vehicle, doesn’t mean you’re set on your new one. The IRS does not believe in a 1-1 truck transference, so you can’t either.

That means you need to register your new truck like you would your old one, except you e-file your 2290 based on the first month you use it.

Speaking of First Month


If you bought your truck this year, you will have a first used month unique to the purchase at a prorated amount.

Basically, you’re only charged from the first month you use the truck instead of your typical July/August filing date.

Since August is the deadline, you will still have to pay that deadline, even if you bought your truck in May or June.

Don’t make this common mistake! And if you did, it’s better to file late than never.

And One More, as a Bonus…


You’re not e-filing with ExpressTruckTax! With our built-in error checks, easy to use e-filing system, and Truck Zone business center, you have plenty of reasons to e-file with us.

Plus you get your stamped Schedule 1 in minutes, so you can get back on the road in no time.

If you have any questions, give us a call at 704.234.6005. Or shoot us an email at Support@ExpressTruckTax.com.

Are YOU making these 2290 errors?

VIN Corrections 101: Fixing Your 2290s

0
So you filed Form 2290 and received your Stamped Schedule 1, but now you’ve discovered you used  the wrong vehicle identification number. What do you do?

Don’t worry, mistakes happen in the realm of tax filings, which is why we have 2290 Amendments. Let’s be real, your VIN is a scramble of 17 alphanumeric characters—sometimes you might hit the wrong key. And trust us, we’ve seen a few 5’s that look like the letter S more than once on a VIN. To err is human!

If you filed your heavy vehicle use tax with ExpressTruckTax, you can e-file a VIN correction FREE of charge. Since your original filing was with us, we think we can help you out. And if you used another service or paper filed your 2290, you can also e-file a VIN correction for a small fee.

How does it work? Well, VIN corrections can be only filed for taxable or suspended vehicles, not for credit vehicles or prior year suspended vehicles. When you file a VIN correction for Form 2290, you can't combine it with credits claimed on the same form. Also, the wrong VIN must have been paid for in the original form 2290. Otherwise, the IRS will assign penalties in addition to the actual tax.

How do you e-file your VIN correction? After logging in to ExpressTruckTax, click Start New Return and you’ll be prompted with three options. From there, you need to select Form 2290 Amendments.





After that, you are prompted to choose between a VIN Correction, a Taxable Gross Weight Increase, and Mileage Exceeded. Underneath VIN Correction, click Start.






From that point on, your options split between previous filers and new customers. If you filed your 2290 with us before, this is where you can e-file your VIN correction for free!







After that, it’s only a matter of entering the incorrect VIN and updating it to the correct VIN. For a more detailed explanation, check out this video!




So don’t forget, if you filed with ExpressTruckTax, you can e-file a VIN correction with no strings attached. Now, we do need your credit card information for verification purposes, but the service itself is free. After you correct your VIN, you will get your corrected Schedule 1 in minutes. Don’t forget, if you didn’t file your HVUT with us, you can still pay for a VIN correction.

If for any reason you have any questions about e-filing your VIN correction, our friendly customer support team can help you out! Reach us by phone at 704.234.6005, email at support@ExpressTruckTax.com, or live chat with us on our website!

It's All about That VIN

0

Everyone who has a vehicle has one, but many people have yet to unlock the secrets of the VIN. And there are secrets, Trucking Nation.

But now you can consider all of your VIN questions answered! And maybe you’ll learn a few secret tidbits about VIN’s that you didn’t already know. Because it’s all about that VIN, y’all.

What is a VIN


A VIN or a Vehicle Identification Number (or even a Chassis number) is a unique code that includes a serial number. These codes are used by the auto industry for identifying specific vehicles.

Vehicle Identification Numbers were first introduced to the vehicle industry in 1954, but they were not standardized until 1981. That’s when they became the identification codes we know today.

Today, a VIN number is typically 17 characters long, and depending on the country your vehicle was made in, it can begin with a variety of letters– or even numbers in the case of North and South America.

The Purpose of a VIN


Before unlocking the secrets of a VIN, most people view them as some sort of mystery 17-digit identification code. But, there is a purpose!

VIN’s can even be used to identify the make, model, weight class, and model year of your vehicle...just by using a 17-digit serial code! They also don’t include the letters I, O, or Q, so that people won’t confuse those letters with a number 1 or a 0.

Where to Find My VIN


The easiest way to locate your VIN is one of two ways because your VIN will be placed on one of two areas on your vehicle.

The first way is to stand outside of your vehicle on the driver’s side and examine the corner of your dash where it meets the windshield.

If your VIN is not located there, open your driver’s side door and look at the door post (where the door latches when it is closed). The number should be located there.

What Does It Have to Do with E-filing?


Since VIN’s contain special coded numbers and letters that describe your unique vehicle, it is imperative you use that identification code for anything pertaining to said vehicle. That includes truck taxes!

As previously stated, VIN’s can be very telling. They contain your weight class, country of origin, the make, and model year. That means, it’s essentially a social security number for your vehicle.

Plus, you want to make sure you pay taxes on the right vehicle and that everything is up-to-date for your own convenience. Because you’ll quickly learn that dealing with government bodies like the IRS and DMV without an identification number would be a nightmare.

If you need any help taming the beast that is the IRS, we’re here for you! We have a dedicated support team located in Rock Hill, SC, standing by just for you. So give us a call at 704.234.6005 or send us an email at support@expresstrucktax.com for 24/hour support in English and Spanish!

And if you notice a VIN error on your Form 2290, you can e-file a VIN correction for free through ExpressTruckTax.com for all returns originally filed with us!

ExpressTruckTax Notifications: Email, Text, Fax, & Postal

0

If you recently submitted your Form 2290, then we know what kinds of questions might be floating around in your head: “Did I make any mistakes?” “How long will it take the IRS to accept it!” “When will I get my stamped Schedule I?”

Endlessly asking yourself these questions and more can be nerve-wracking—unless you E-filed with ExpressTruckTax!

We know that you don’t have the time to keep logging in to your account, waiting for that highly-anticipated
moment when it says, “Accepted.” So in our continued efforts to keep you on the road and as stress-free as possible, we developed a solution! ExpressTruckTax not only offers you free email notifications, but also offers three additional kinds you can sign-up for. Sign up for all three, or two, or one—whatever suits your needs best!


From the “Available Payment Options” page in your account, you can choose to receive text alerts, automatic fax alerts or postal delivery notification.
  • Our text alerts will send you a text message, to the phone of your choosing, notifying you the moment your return has been accepted by the IRS! This way, the good news will come to you the second it happens! And you can breathe a sigh of relief.
  • If you opt to receive automatic fax alerts, not only will you receive a fax the moment your return has been processed, but along with it, you’ll receive a copy of your Stamped Schedule I! You can even use this option to notify another party via fax.
  • Elect our postal delivery option and you’ll receive a printed copy of your stamped Schedule I AND a copy of your 2290, straight to your door (or P.O. Box)! This can be a particularly good option for those of you who are on the road with nary a printer in sight!
In addition to our Notifications System, we’ve always got some more perks for ya! On the off-chance that you’ve made a mistake while filing, we offer free VIN corrections and IRS Form 2290 Amendments. And should you ever misplace or need an extra copy of your vital tax documents, you can login to your account to view previously filed returns, even download or email them. Also access your Stamped Schedule I or payment receipt within your account, anytime.

And of course we can’t forget about our Support Heroes! They’re on the front lines, day and night, assisting you in English, Spanish, and Russian! Call them at 704.234.6005. You can also chat with them online or get 24/7 email support at support@expresstrucktax.com. They're always here for you, even after you've E-filed.

Now, Trucking Nation, when you come to that moment of fate, as a bead of sweat forms on your brow and your quivering finger hovers over the “Submit” button, you no longer have to feel the anxiety. You can click with confidence, knowing that our E-filers have a 98% approval rating and that you’ll be conveniently notified the moment your return is accepted!
