File Your 2290 From Any Location With Our Mobile App

0

Truckers are always on the move, literally. They spend hours on the road making an honest living while transporting items from point a to point b. As they’re traveling around the country life doesn’t slow down for them, they still have the same tax deadlines as everyone else. That’s why ExpressTruckTax has taken a step to make life easier for truckers by providing them with the free ExpressTruckTax app that allows you to e-file the IRS Form 2290.

First, Here is a little about the HVUT Form 2290


The HVUT or Heavy Vehicle Use tax Form 2290 must be filed for every month that a taxable vehicle is used on public highways. The funds from this tax go towards the repair of public highways making the roads smooth and safe for truckers to use.

Qualifying vehicles for the Form 2290 include highway motor vehicles that have a taxable weight of 55,000 pounds or more. Highway motor vehicles include any vehicle that is self-propelled and designed to carry loads over public highways.

The type of load a vehicle carries as far as passengers, equipment, cargo, or supplies doesn’t matter because the vehicle weight consists of the chassis and body, not the load.

Your form 2290 is due the last day of the 2nd month after the month that your vehicle is first used. For example, if you first use a HVUT qualifying vehicle in February then your Form 2290 is due by March 31st.

Then after that for every year that the vehicle is in use during the taxable period beginning on July 1st and ending on June 30th of the following year, you’ll need to complete your Form 2290 by the August 31st deadline.

The ExpressTruckTax 2290 E-Filing App


The free ExpressTruckTax app allows for people who are out on the road to easily e-file their HVUT Form 2290 in a matter of minutes. Then they’ll instantly receive their Stamped Schedule 1.

There’s no headache involved when using this app because it provided easy to follow instructions. Plus, you can use the built-in 2290 calculator to quickly calculate how much you owe.

A copy of your Stamped Schedule 1 will be available for you to access within the app at any time for you to show traffic officers or people at the DMV. Proof that you paid your HVUT will always be at your fingertips.

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.
