So, What's the Deal with the IRS 2290 Deadline?

0
Truckers must file IRS 2290 by the 2290 filing deadline to avoid IRS penalties.
If you’re reading this article, you probably know that you need to file your IRS 2290 soon.

But did you know that the 2290 filing deadline is September 3rd, 2019, not the usual August 31st?

Maybe you’re wondering why the 2290 deadline is different.

Or perhaps you have some confusion surrounding filing IRS Form 2290 and paying your actual IRS 2290 payment.

Better yet, you might be thinking about how much of a hassle this is, and wondering why it’s necessary in the first place.

Well, you’re about to find out! I’m here to answer all of your IRS 2290 questions.

Form 2290 Due Date

Why September 3rd?

Normally, the Form 2290 deadline is August 31st.

This year, that date falls on a Saturday. The next business day would be Monday, September 2nd, but that’s Labor Day.

Therefore, this year, the Form 2290 due date is September 3rd, 2019.

You might be thinking about how lucky you are to get a couple extra days this year, but think again.

As tempting as it may be to wait until the last minute, how likely are you to think about filing IRS 2290 and paying your 2290 highway use tax after a weekend and holiday…?

Trust me. File today or, at the very latest, file August 30th. That way you’ll ensure that the 2290 deadline is met.

Plus, if there are any issues or your IRS Form 2290 is rejected and you need to make corrections, you’ll have time to do so before the Form 2290 due date.

I'm not asking much. If you file with an IRS-authorized e-file provider like ExpressTruckTax the whole process takes as little as 10 minutes.

Seriously, just get it over with.

What About the IRS 2290 Payment?

So, you might’ve heard that if you can’t afford to pay your IRS 2290 payment right now, you should go ahead and file IRS Form 2290 anyway.

This is true.

Failing to file IRS Form 2290 by the 2290 filing deadline will result in a penalty of 4.5% of the 2290 highway use tax due. This will increase monthly for up to 5 months.

However, the penalty for failing to pay your IRS 2290 payment is only 0.5% of your total tax amount, plus additional interest of 0.54% per month.

Even if you can’t afford to pay your IRS 2290 payment right now, you should still file.

If you file, but do not pay your full 2290 highway use tax amount, you’ll face a much lower penalty (0.5% compared to 4.5% of the total tax due).

Maybe you can pay by September 3rd, but not by tomorrow.
Truck drivers are required to file IRS Form 2290 and make their IRS 2290 payment by the Form 2290 due date. File today anyway.

You don’t want to get stuck with a rejected return or worse, without a  2290 Schedule 1

You may face unexpected penalties.

You never know what could happen. Take a moment to file now.


When Will I Get My 2290 Schedule 1?

Your 2290 Schedule 1 is a huge part of why it’s so critical for you to file on time.

An updated 2290 Schedule 1 is necessary for operation, including anything from renewing your tags to traveling internationally or renewing your IFTA license.

If you file IRS 2290 online with ExpressTruckTax, you’ll get a copy of your 2290 Schedule 1 just minutes after IRS Form 2290 filing. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

This Is What Actually Happens If You Don't File IRS 2290

0
Truckers file IRS 2290 before the 2290 deadline to avoid penalties.
The IRS Form 2290 deadline is creeping up.

Don’t end up blindsided. Filing IRS 2290 for 2019 by the 2290 deadline is critical, not only to stay compliant, but also to remain in operation and avoid fines.

Still not convinced? Don’t wait around until the end of August to find out for yourself, we’ll tell you what will happen right now.

Here’s a rundown of what exactly what happens when you miss 2290 deadline:

What Happens If You Forget About IRS 2290?

IRS 2290 Deadline

Normally, the annual IRS 2290 deadline is August 31st, but this year that date falls on a Saturday. 

Therefore, the 2290 due date is technically September 3rd.

We’re off to a good start. You’ve got a couple more days to file than normal.
But you’re busy. What if you still can’t find the time or motivation?

IRS 2290 Penalties

Here’s some motivation:

If you miss the 2290 deadline, you’ll face penalties. Let’s say you simply forget to file.

First, you’ll need to pay the IRS 2290 late filing penalty, which is 4.5% of the total HVUT 2290 tax amount you owe.

Then, you’ll face an additional .54% of interest each month that passes without you filing.

On top of that, you’ll still have to pay the original HVUT 2290 amount you owe whenever you do file.

If the reason for late filing was an error on your original IRS 2290 return, you may be able to avoid penalties altogether.

You can attach an explanation to your corrected 2290 for 2019 filing, showing reasonable cause for the delay. Even this, however, does not guarantee that the IRS will accept your statement and save you from the penalty. 

Avoiding Form 2290 Penalties

There’s an easy fix for avoiding IRS Form 2290 penalties:

File HVUT 2290 before the 2290 due date!

Failing to file HVUT 2290 for 2019 before the 2290 due date can lead to heavy penalties.

The Form 2290 deadline is usually August 31, but since that falls on a weekend this year, it is September 3rd. 

You really have no excuse not to file on time. Especially with ExpressTruckTax as an option.

ExpressTruckTax allows you to file IRS 2290 for 2019 online quickly and easily. 

Plus, you’ll get your Schedule 1 just minutes after you’ve submitted your return.

It doesn’t take long, and you can file from anywhere. Knock it out today and forget about the 2290 due date until next year.

Your HVUT Form 2290 is Due Next Thursday

0
Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290
What’s on your mind? The fact that it’s pretty hot and humid at this point during the summer, the fact that Labor Day is almost here to enjoy, or the fact that your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) Form 2290 is due by next Thursday, on August 31st?

If your mind isn’t on the deadline, then it should be, for at least 5 minutes, because that’s all it takes to quickly and conveniently file your Form 2290 with ExpressTruckTax in order to receive a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 via email within about 15 minutes, depending on IRS volume. Also, so you can become a HVUT expert we have put together a list of HVUT facts.

All About The HVUT


So what exactly is the HVUT? It is the tax assessed on the use of public highways by heavy vehicles with gross weights of 55,000 pounds or more. The taxes collected are used to repair, maintain, and build public highways.

You must file HVUT Form 2290 for every taxable highway motor vehicle that is required to be registered in your name under state, District of Columbia, Canadian, or Mexican law at the time of its first use period.

A taxable highway motor vehicle is one with a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more and includes any self-propelled vehicle designed to carry loads over public highways, regardless if it’s designed to perform other functions. A taxable vehicle consists of a chassis or a chassis and a body but does not include the load.

E-filing App For Form 2290 HVUT
The current HVUT tax period began on July 1, 2017, and will end on June 30, 2018. The HVUT is based on your first use month and is due by the last day of the month following the first use month. For example, if you first use your truck in October then your Form 2290 will be due by November 30th. Because a majority of truckers first use their trucks in July, the last day of the following month, which is August 31st is a huge deadline day.

As a result of filing your Form 2290, you will get a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 which serves as your proof of payment. It actually has a digital watermark stamp that includes the time that the IRS approved and accepted your Form 2290. Your stamped Schedule 1 is very important because you need it to register new vehicles and to renew your vehicle tags. Without it, you will be operating illegally.

Luckily filing Form 2290 is extremely easy and some of your information can be found on previous stamped Schedule 1s. All you need to file is your business name, address, and EIN (Employer Identification Number). For your vehicles, you need the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) and taxable gross weight.

How to E-File Form 2290?


You can actually file Form 2290 in 5 minutes or less with ExpressTruckTax. Simply head to ExpressTruckTax.com or download the ExpressTruckTax app to your smartphone or tablet and follow the step-by-step e-filing guide to instantly complete your Form 2290. Then you will receive a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 via email within about 15 minutes.

For an even easier way to file call TSNAmerica at 803.386.0320 to have a US-based representative file for you. All you have to do is answer a few questions during a short phone call, then your filing process will be complete and you will receive your stamped Schedule 1 via email.

Forget to File Form 2290? You're Going to Face Penalties!

0
The clock is seriously ticking! Every time a moment passes then we are getting even closer to the
Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) deadline on August 31st. You still have about two weeks to file, but don't wait. You should still file as soon as you can.

If you run into errors and your form gets rejected then you will be responsible for correcting your form and retransmitting it by the deadline. If your Form 2290 or HVUT payment is late you will have a few penalties to face.

HVUT Penalties


You may not receive a penalty for filing your return or paying the amount of HVUT tax you owe by the deadline if you are able to show reasonable cause for not filing or paying on time. If your file after the deadline be sure to attach an explanation to your return to show reasonable cause. The reasonable cause may then be accepted or rejected by the IRS.

Now the penalty for failing to file your HVUT IRS Form 2290 by the August 31 deadline is equal to 4.5% of the total tax due, and this penalty will accrue on a monthly basis for up to five months. The penalty for not making a HVUT payment is a monthly fee of .5% of the total tax due. You will also face an additional interest charge of .54% per month. This penalty can make the amount you owe increase pretty quickly.

Note: There are also penalties for filing fraudulent or false returns.

In addition to these federal penalties, your state may suspend your vehicle registration until you can provide proof of your HVUT payment. Your stamped Schedule 1 serves as your proof of payment, and you receive it by filing Form 2290. You need a stamped Schedule 1 to renew your tags and register new vehicles. Without it, you will be operating illegally.

How to File HVUT Form 2290?


Now that you know you really need to file your HVUT Form 2290 by the deadline, don’t panic. You can quickly and conveniently file right now by heading to ExpressTruckTax.com or by using the ExpressTruckTax App on your smartphone or tablet. All you have to do is follow the e-filing guide.

Either on the site or app, you will create your free ExpressTruckTax account with your email address. Then you will enter your business information like the name, address, and EIN (Employer Identification Number). Sole proprietors may use their personal information.

Then you will enter your tax year and first used month before entering your vehicle information, including the VIN (vehicle Identification Number) and the taxable gross weight. This is also where you will select if your vehicle was used for any special purposes such as logging, or agricultural use. Remember to include any suspended vehicles.

penalties for filing HUVT Form 2290 late
Next, we will accurately calculate how much HVUT you owe for you. Then you can directly pay that amount to the IRS through direct debit or electronic funds withdrawal, EFTPS, or check or money order.

After that, we will perform a basic audit check on your form to catch any basic errors. Also, we will present you with a summary of your information so you can make sure all of your information has been entered correctly. Once any corrections have been made you can sign your form with a 5-digit number of your choice, pay for it, and transmit it directly to the IRS.

Last but not least, you will receive a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 via email, within about 15 minutes of transmitting it. You can also elect to have it faxed, texted, or mailed anywhere it needs to go.

For an even easier way to file call TSNAmerica at 803.386.0320 to have one of their HVUT 2290 experts file for you, over the phone. With one quick call you will have your form filed and you will receive a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 via email.

Common Reasons for Form 2290 Rejections

0
As the HVUT deadline races towards us, it’s important to remember to give yourself enough time to file our Heavy Vehicle Use Tax 2290 Forms to make it by the August 31st deadline. If you wait until the last minute to file and your form is rejected then it’s up to you to correct it and retransmit it to the IRS in time, otherwise, you will face late filing penalties.

So why wait? Go ahead and use ExpressTruckTax to quickly and conveniently knock out your Form 2290 today and use the following tips about why 2290 forms are commonly rejected to get yours accepted the first time.

Why 2290 Forms Are Commonly Rejected


EIN Problems

You need an EIN or Employer Identification Number to complete your Form 2290. There’s no way around it. Once you place your SSN in place of your EIN on your form then it will instantly be rejected.

If you need an EIN go apply for one with the IRS now because it takes about two weeks for them to become updated in the IRS’s system and your form can get rejected during that time. Even though you’ll get your EIN instantly when you apply for one, you have to wait for it to become active before you can file.

You also need to make sure that your business information matches the information that you have on file for your EIN with the IRS. If they don’t match then your form could get rejected. You can verify your information with the IRS by calling 1-888-829-4933.

Your Form is a Duplicate

Each VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) can only be filed for once during the HVUT tax period. Duplicates will be rejected, so make sure that you’re filing for the current tax period which runs from July 1st, 2017 to June 30th, 2018. If you accidentally filed for the previous tax period then that could be why your form is considered a duplicate.

You also need to make sure that you enter your VIN correctly. If it’s one character off then your form could get rejected. If your form is rejected for this reason don’t panic, you can quickly and easily file free VIN corrections with ExpressTruckTax.

RTN Errors

You can pay the amount of HVUT you owe to the IRS through direct debit or electronic funds withdrawal, and that process involves providing your bank account number and RTN (Routing Transfer Number).

If you enter this information with as little as one character off the IRS will not be able to debit the funds and your form will be rejected. This is also the case if you do not have enough funds in your account to cover the full amount.

Enter your information, which can be found on one of your checks correctly. If your form is rejected for the incorrect RTN or insufficient funds simply edit your form and retransmit it or choose a different payment method.

When Filing Your Form 2290… 


ExpressTruckTax is your best e-filing option. You can follow the step-by-step guide to instantly complete your form and receive a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 within about 15 minutes of filing. Plus, ExpressTruckTax makes it incredibly easy to file amendments, edit your form, make free VIN corrections, and more.

Also, with the ExpressTruckTax app, you can file from any location at any time right from your smartphone or tablet. Meaning you can file even if you’re out on a trip!

Another great way to instantly file is by calling TSNAmerica at 803.386.0320 to have a representative file for you, over the phone. By making one call you’ll have your 2290 filed and you will receive a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 via email.

Your HVUT Form 2290 Is Due This Month!

0
Sound the alarm, your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) Form 2290 is due this month! That means time is officially running out and you need to file by the August 31st deadline in order to avoid getting faced with major penalties.

However, you don’t have to panic, ExpressTruckTax, your number 1 Form 2290 e-file provider is here to help with a few tips for you to remember when you quickly and easily file.

2290 Filing Tips


1. Slow down and enter all of your information correctly to avoid having your form rejected over a simple typo. VINs (Vehicle Identification Numbers) for example, consist of 17 characters with both letters and numbers, so they can be easy to mix up. Plus, the font is usually pretty small and hard to read, so bust out your glasses if you need to.

The letters I, O, and Q are not found in VINs to prevent confusion. So an I is a 1 and an O is a 0. Also, there are no spaces in your VIN. If you need to correct your VIN don’t worry, ExpressTruckTax lets you quickly and easily make VIN corrections for free.

2. Go ahead and get your EIN (Employer Identification Number) now if you need one. If you don’t have one then you need to apply for one with the IRS online. Once you apply you’ll receive your new EIN number instantly, but that doesn’t mean you can use it yet. It takes about 15 days for your EIN to become updated in the IRS’s system and forms can get rejected during that time.

The clock is already ticking, soon you won’t be able to wait 15 days before the deadline for your EIN to become updated. The deadline will be here before you know it, so again, if you need an EIN, handle it today.

3. Double check your information. You will be presented with a summary of your information with ExpressTruckTax before transmitting your return to the IRS, just so that you can reread over all of your details and make sure that everything is correct.

If you enter your name incorrectly then your stamped Schedule 1 will have the wrong name and then the DMV won’t accept it as proof of payment. Then you will have to file and pay for your HVUT all over again to get a new stamped Schedule 1.

4. Remember, you are required to include your suspended vehicles on your 2290 Form. A suspended vehicle is a vehicle that is expected to be used for less than 5,000 miles (7,500 for agricultural vehicles) on public highways during the tax period. Suspended or credit vehicles also include vehicles that were lost, stolen, or destroyed.

Including these vehicles may work to your advantage because in some cases you can receive tax credits or a refund for them. If ExpressTruckTax sees that the amount of credit you have is greater than the amount of HVUT you owe then we will automatically generate Form 8849, the Claim for Refund of Excise Taxes Form for you, so you can get your money back from the IRS faster.

5. Instantly file online with ExpressTruckTax! It’s easy, follow the step-by-step e-filing guide to have your stamped Schedule 1 sent to you via email within about 15 minutes. You don’t even need a computer to file. With the ExpressTruckTax app on your smartphone or tablet to file at any time, from any location.

Or call TSNAmerica at 803.386.0320 to have a 2290 expert file over the phone for you. All you have to do is sit back and answer a few questions to instantly handle your 2290 needs. Plus, you’ll instantly get a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 via email.

IRS Form 2290 HVUT Payment Options

0
Every minute the August 31 deadline for your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290 creeps a little closer. It’s already the last week of July, and the deadline will be here before you know it, so be prepared to file. Also, be sure to keep in mind that not only do you need to file by the deadline, but you need to pay the amount of HVUT you owe by the deadline as well, and you have a few different payment options.

How to Pay Your HVUT?


While filing your 2290 with ExpressTruckTax you’ll follow a step-by-step guide to complete your form in a matter of minutes. Once you get to the IRS payment step you can choose between 3 different payment options based on the most convenient method for you.

1. Direct Debit or Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW), is the payment option where you provide your banking information (account and routing number) through ExpressTruckTax’s safe and secure system to authorize the IRS to debit the amount you owe from your bank account. It is important that your account has enough funds to cover the amount you owe.

The amount is generally withdrawn in 24 to 48 hours after providing authorization. Keep in mind that this involves your banking information, not your card number. The IRS will not accept credit cards.

If you need to cancel your payment contact IRS payment services at 1.888.353.4537 at least 2 days before the payment date.

2. EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System) is the electronic tax payment system used by the IRS. If you choose this payment option you will be taken to the EFTPS site, and you’ll create a free account.

In order to pay the IRS through EFTPS, you will provide your bank account information and verify that the IRS is allowed to withdraw your tax payment from that account. In order to make your payment by the deadline, you must schedule it before 8 p.m. the day before the deadline for it to be received by the IRS in time.

3. You can also pay the amount of HVUT you owe with a Check or Money Order. If you choose this option you will need to print your completed payment voucher, 2290-V, from page 5 of your completed 2290 Form and mail to the IRS.

Make your check or money order payable to the United States Treasury. Also, you will need to include your name, address, EIN, the date, and the words “IRS Form 2290” with your payment. Do not staple your payment and voucher together.

Remember, never send cash through the mail. 

Send your payment and voucher 2290-V to:

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

Important: If you have already paid your HVUT via Direct Debit or EFW and received a letter from the IRS saying they were unable to debit the funds there are a few likely causes:

- Your account and routing number were entered into ExpressTruckTax incorrectly. Even entering one character incorrectly will prevent the IRS from being able to withdraw the amount you owe.

- The IRS tried to debit your account, but you had insufficient funds. If you are even as little as 50 cents short then the IRS will not debit the funds.

If you receive a letter from the IRS saying they could not withdraw the funds from the bank account provided then you will need to send a check or money order to the IRS in order to pay the amount you owe by the August 31st deadline.

Know Your 2290 Vehicle Types: Suspended, Agricultural, Logging, Etc.

0
With the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290 deadline on August 31st quickly approaching we’re here to help with tips about the filing process, and where you can find some savings. We don’t want you to pay more than you have to. Plus, we want you to get the highest amount of credits that you can to claim a refund!

That’s why we’re discussing the different types of 2290 vehicles today. Some are subject to lower tax rates, will give you credits, and are even exempt from the HVUT all together!

2290 Vehicles 


It’s important to be aware that all of your qualifying highway motor vehicles with a taxable gross weight of over 55,000 pounds or more must be reported on your Form 2290. The weight includes the vehicle’s chassis or the chassis and body, but not the load.

Qualifying vehicles include any self-propelled vehicles that are designed to carry loads on public highways, regardless if they’re designed to perform other functions or not. A few examples of other functions include being designed to carry special good or supplies, to carry passengers, or to carry permanently mounted equipment.

Logging Vehicle


This one is pretty simple. A logging vehicle is one that is exclusively used for the transportation of products like timber (logs) harvested from forested sites, or it exclusively transports products harvested from the site to and from locations within the forested site.

It’s important to list your vehicle as a logging one if it qualifies because logging vehicles are subject to lower tax rates than other heavy vehicles. Just keep in mind that your vehicle must be registered as a vehicle exclusively used for logging accordingly to the applicable vehicle registration laws in your state. 

Agricultural Vehicles


Agricultural vehicles are any highway motor vehicles that are used or expected to be used primarily for farming purposes. They must be registered under state laws are a highway motor vehicle used for farming purposes during the entire tax period.

A qualifying agricultural vehicle is one that is used for farming purposes for over half of the vehicle's use, based on mileage, during the tax period. These vehicles also require special tags or license plates to identify them as agricultural vehicles and are considered to be different from logging vehicles.

Agricultural vehicles count as suspended or credit vehicles if they’re used for fewer than 7,500 miles during the tax period.

Suspended Vehicles


A suspended or credit vehicle is a highway motor vehicle that is expected to travel less than 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles) during the tax period. This mileage limit applies to the total amount of miles it’s driven on the road, regardless of the number of owners.

Other suspended or credit vehicles include those that were sold, destroyed, or stolen and they must all be reported on your 2290. If they exceed the mileage limit during the tax period then you’ll owe HVUT for them.

While e-filing Form 2290 if ExpressTruckTax sees that your credit amount exceeds the amount of HVUT you owe then we will auto generate Form 8849 for you, so you can claim a refund or credit on the amount you paid to the IRS for these vehicles.

Exempt Vehicles


Vehicles that are exempt from the HVUT don’t need to be filed for, regardless of how many miles they travel. They’re 100% exempt from the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax! A few HVUT exempt vehicles include qualified blood collector vehicles, mobile machinery used for non-transportation purposes, heavy vehicles used by the federal government, and more.

Save Money On Your Form 2290

0
You know what's a good practice in the trucking industry? Penny-pinching! Saving anywhere you can really help out in the long run, and can actually make or break fleets trying to emerge into the market. Unfortunately, with the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) Form 2290 deadline you’ll have to pay the amount you owe or face hefty penalties. But don't worry, we know a few ways to save on your HVUT.

Use These Tips To Save On Your 2290:


1. Take Advantage of Our Wallet Feature 


Before filing your HVUT Form 2290 see how many forms you actually need to file because with ExpressTruckTax you can purchase prepaid credits through their exclusive wallet feature. Each credit provides a 10% discount off of your filing fee, so the more credits you buy, the more you save. Don’t worry about purchasing more credits than you need, because they never expire and can be used next season. 

The credits save you time and money because instead of having to hunt down your wallet and enter in all of your card information, you can conveniently use your prepaid credit to pay for your form.

To purchase prepaid credits log into your free ExpressTruckTax account and you’ll see your wallet in the top right corner. Click the orange ‘Buy’ button to purchase the number of credits you need.

2. Get A Refund Or Credit With Form 8849


After you file Form 2290 and pay the amount of HVUT that you owe you can file Form 8849, the Refund or Claim of Excise taxes form, which is used to claim refunds or credits on suspended vehicles and vehicles that were sold, stolen, or destroyed.

Suspended or credit vehicles are vehicles that don’t exceed 5,000 miles (7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles) during the current tax period.

While filing your Form 2290 with ExpressTruckTax if your credit vehicles exceed the amount of HVUT you owe then Form 8849 will automatically be generated for you, and all you need to file is your name, address, and EIN. You’ll also need the information for your vehicle that you’re claiming a refund on, including details as to why, if your vehicle was lost, stolen, or destroyed, and the date that the incident occurred.

3. Avoid Penalties By Filing on Time


If you file late you could face a penalty of 4.5% of the tax due. To make matters worse that amount collects on a monthly basis for up to 5 months! Also, if you don’t pay the amount you owe then you’ll face another penalty of 0.5% of the amount owed per month. You’ll really save by filing on on time.

If you wait until just days before the deadline you could run into a problem that causes your form to be rejected and then counted as late if you can’t fix it by the deadline. For example, if you enter the wrong VIN or Vehicle Identification Number, or wait too late to apply for an EIN or Employer Identification Number your form could get rejected.

Luckily ExpressTruckTax makes it easy to fix any mistakes. If your form is rejected you’ll be notified almost immediately with notes as to why. Then you can easily make Form 2290 amendments, retransmit your forms to the IRS, and make free VIN corrections at any time. The sooner your pre-file, the sooner you’ll learn if your form has been rejected or accepted.

How To Pre-file?


You can create your free ExpressTruckTax account to access our step-by-step 2290 e-filing guide to complete your form in a matter of minutes today. Then as soon as the IRS stamps your Schedule 1 you’ll receive a copy via email. You don't even need a computer to file, download the free ExpressTruckTax App to file on your smartphone or tablet from any location.

Also, you can call TSNAmerica at 803.386.0320 to speak with a representative who will pre-file your 2290 for you, over the phone. How does it get any easier than that? Plus, you’ll get a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 via email.

2290s And EINs: Everything You Need To Know

0
The Heavy Vehicle Use Tax season is coming right at us at full speed! You can try to jump out of the way, but you’ll still need to file your Form 2290 by the August 31st deadline. Don’t let the deadline run you over. Be prepared and file as soon as possible to avoid having your form rejected. For example, it’s very important to know that you’re required to have an EIN.

What to Remember About Your EIN?


Your EIN or your Employer Identification Number is also known as the Federal Tax Identification Number and the Federal Employer Identification Number or FEIN. EINs are assigned to businesses operating in the United States in order to identify them for tax reporting purposes. Each EIN consists of a unique 9 digit number.

This is important because you are required by the IRS to have an EIN to complete your 2290. They need it to identify you to correctly verify that you’re filing for yourself and to prevent fraud.

There may be some confusion when it comes to EINs and Social Security Numbers (SSN) because they’re both 9 digit identification codes. However, EINs are used to identify businesses, and social security numbers are used to identify individuals. Also, the IRS used to accept SSNs in place of EINs on Form 2290s, but that is no longer the case. If you use your SSN in the EIN field your form will be rejected.

Also, when it comes to the information on your 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 at (800) 829-4933.

If you don’t have an EIN you can apply for online for free with the IRS here. Once you finish applying you will instantly receive your 9 digit EIN, but please keep in mind that it will take about 15 days for your EIN to update in the IRS’s system and your 2290 could be rejected during this time.

Each EIN is is a unique code that never expires. However, as a sole proprietor you may need a new EIN if you’re subject to a bankruptcy proceeding, you incorporate, you take in new partners and operate as a partnership, or you purchase or inherit an existing business. 

How To File Your 2290?


Why wait when you can go ahead and knock out your 2290 today? Go ahead and file online with ExpressTruckTax or the ExpressTruckTax App now. Simply follow the step-by-step filing guide to instantly complete your form. As a result, your Form 2290 will be transmitted directly to the IRS and you'll get your stamped Schedule 1 in about 15 minutes.

You can also call TSNAmerica at 803.386.0320 to file your Form 2290 today over the phone. Simply give them a call and an outstanding US-based representative will file your 2290 for you! It’s that easy. Plus, you will instantly get a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 via email.

Why Haven't You Filed Your 2290?

0
Hit the Jake Brake! You haven’t filed your 2290 yet?! What a rookie move. Especially when you have a few different ways to go ahead and pre-file today offered by ExpressTruckTax and TSNAmerica. Don’t wait until the last minute and find yourself in a pickle. Instead, go ahead and pre-file to knock out your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290 today.

Reasons to Pre-File 2290

Just like with all of your other taxes if you don’t pay for or file your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290 by the deadline you will face fees and penalties imposed by the IRS. If you don’t file because you can’t pay the amount you owe, consider getting a credit card or small loan to cover it, because the longer you wait, the more you’ll owe.

For example, the initial penalty for filing late is 4.5% of the tax due, and this accrues on a monthly basis for up to five months. Also, if you don’t pay your tax due you’ll face an additional penalty of .05% of the total amount you owe with an interest charge of .54% per month. That can make the amount you owe quickly skyrocket.

Some authorities will revoke your license if they find out you failed to file before the deadline. However, most states are a little lenient towards first-time offenders.

You Want Time to Fix Mistakes and Prepare

Some people don’t realize that they need an EIN or Employer Identification Number to file. You can get one by applying online with the IRS, but it will take about 15 days to become active in the system. During that 15 days, your form could get rejected! If you wait too close to the deadline before getting your EIN then you’ll miss it!

Plus, what happens if your form gets rejected for a simple mistake like an incorrect VIN? By pre-filing, you’ll know sooner if you’ve made a mistake that you need to correct on your form. With an e-file provider like ExpressTruckTax, you’ll be notified as to why your form was rejected so you can quickly fix any errors and retransmit your form. They even make it easy to amend your form and offer free VIN corrections.

You Want Your Stamped Schedule 1 Sooner

The longer you wait to file, the busier the IRS gets. When the IRS gets backed up they’ll take longer to stamp your Schedule 1 and send it back to you. Plus, if you file the old conventional paper way, you’ll have to wait for it to come in the mail.

Speed things up by pre-filing. Your Form 2290 will be transmitted directly to the IRS when they begin accepting returns. Then the IRS will stamp your Schedule 1 and you’ll instantly receive a copy via email. You can also choose to receive a copy via text or fax to get your carrier and the DMV off your back.

How to Pre-File?

Pre-Filing is incredibly simple. Just go to ExpressTruckTax.com and follow their step-by-step guide to file in a matter of minutes. The guide tells you exactly what information to enter and where. ExpressTruckTax also calculates the amount of Heavy Vehicle Use Tax you owe for you.

You could also call TSNAmerica at 803.386.0320 to pre-file for you, over the phone. That’s right, we said pre-file for you. This is the fewer hands-on approach. It doesn’t matter which pre-filing option you choose, your information will still be transmitted to the IRS when they begin accepting returns, and you’ll get a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 almost immediately.

We’re Here to Help

If you have any questions regarding the pre-filing process please don’t hesitate to contact the dedicated ExpressTruckTax support team Monday - Friday from 8:30 am to 5:30 PM EST at 704.234.6005. We’re also available via live chat and offer 24/7 email support at support@expresstrucktax.com.
