How To Deal With IRS 2290 Rejection

0
Truckers who filed before the Form 2290 due date may still face Form 2290 rejection.
You filed before the Form 2290 due date! What a relief. No penalties, no worries

Until you get a notice that your IRS 2290 was rejected.

Don’t stress. There are multiple reasons for rejection, but we’ve got a fix for each one.

Here’s all the information you’ll need to correct your IRS 2290 highway use tax as quickly as possible to avoid penalty.

Form 2290 Rejection

Common Reasons for Rejection

In order to fix your 2290 highway use tax and get an updated Schedule 1 Form 2290, you’ll need to find the issue.

There are multiple reasons for Form 2290 rejection including:

-  EIN and Business Name Mismatch
If the EIN you entered does not match the information the IRS has on record, you can call the IRS Excise Hotline at 1-866-699-4096 to determine what information they have.

If your EIN is brand new, it will likely be rejected because it takes about 10 business days for the IRS to register a new EIN in their system. The reported reason for rejection will be: “EIN does not match business name”. Once your EIN is registered, simply retransmit your return.

-  Routing Transit Number Rejection
If you chose to pay your 2290 highway use tax by Electronic Funds Withdrawal, your bank routing number was required.

If your IRS 2290 was rejected because the wrong routing number was entered, simply correct the routing number and re-transmit your return to the IRS.

*Note: If you notice a routing number error but your return was accepted, contact the IRS.

-  Duplicate Filing of IRS 2290
This type of rejection means your IRS 2290 was already filed and confirmed by the IRS, and that a second 2290 was submitted on your behalf.

Filing a Form 2290 Amendment

There are 3 events that would require filing a Form 2290 amendment, including:

1.  Increase in Taxable Gross Weight
If your vehicle’s taxable gross weight increases, causing it to fall into a new weight category, you’ll need to file a Form 2290 amendment.

For instance, if the maximum load customarily carried increases, the gross taxable weight may change.

If this happens, calculate and report the additional tax for the remainder of the period on IRS 2290, line 3, “Additional tax from increase in taxable gross weight”.

Then, check the Amended Return box, and write the date of the last day of the month following the month that the taxable gross weight increased to the right.

2.  Mileage Use Limit Exceeded
You’ll need to file a Form 2290 amendment if a suspended vehicle exceeds the mileage use limit of 5,000 miles (7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles).

Mileage use limit applies to total mileage during a period, regardless of the number of owners.

If this applies to you, file an amended 2290 Form by reporting the tax on page 2 based on the month the vehicle was first used during the tax period. Then, check the Amended Return box.

3. Incorrect VIN
If you’ve entered the wrong VIN number, file a 2290 VIN correction.

You can only file a 2290 VIN Correction for taxable or suspended vehicles, not for credit vehicles or prior suspended vehicles.

Also, you cannot make credit claims on the same form as your Form 2290 amendment. The tax for the vehicle must have been paid with the original IRS 2290.

Forgot to File IRS Form 2290? How to Avoid More Penalties

0
Truck drivers who missed the IRS Tax Form 2290 hurry to file IRS 2290 to avoid further penalties.
So, you forgot to file IRS 2290 before September 3rd, 2019.

You’ll want to file IRS Form 2290 now to avoid further penalties.

Luckily, you’ve come to the right place.

We’ll talk about what exactly happens when you miss the IRS Form 2290 deadline, and how to rectify the situation by filing IRS 2290 online.

Here are the IRS 2290 instructions for filing after the IRS 2290 deadline.

Filing IRS Form 2290 After The Deadline

IRS 2290 Penalties

If you still need to file your IRS Tax Form 2290, your penalty is 4.5% of your total HVUT 2290 amount, plus additional interest of 0.54% each month for up to 5 months.

If you already filed HVUT Form 2290 but have not paid your HVUT 2290 tax amount, your penalty is only 0.5% per month, plus the same interest of 0.54%.

You may be able to avoid these penalties if you attach an explanation of the reasonable cause for late filing to your HVUT Form 2290.

However, don’t count on it. File IRS Form 2290 ASAP to avoid further penalty, don’t just assume that your explanation will be accepted and take your time filing.

2290 Proof of Payment

You’ll also need to file HVUT Form 2290 quickly in order to stay compliant on the roads.

After you’ve filed IRS Form 2290, you’ll receive a 2290 proof of payment, which is essentially a receipt for your 2290 highway use tax.

You must take this document on the road with you for legal operation. Your 2290 proof of payment is also required for things like tag renewals, international travel, and more.

The sooner you file IRS Tax Form 2290 online, the sooner you’ll receive your 2290 proof of payment.

Filing IRS 2290 online is simple. The IRS actually recommends online filing because of how efficient it is.

Almost out of Time! Avoid Penalties, File IRS 2290 Now

0
Truckers speed into IRS 2290 filing, hurrying to file their 2290 highway use tax before the HVUT 2290 deadline.
The IRS 2290 filing deadline is coming up on September 3rd, 2019.

If you’re thinking of putting off filing IRS 2290 or waiting to pay your heavy vehicle use tax, I’m here to prepare you for the IRS penalties you can expect.

Plus, we’ll go over how exactly to avoid those penalties while saving money and time.

Let’s get started. 

Everything You Need For IRS 2290 Filing

IRS Form 2290 Filing Deadline

As mentioned, the 2290 deadline is September 3rd, 2019.

This is the deadline to file IRS Form 2290 and pay your 2290 tax amount.

Failing to file and pay heavy vehicle use tax will result in penalties from the IRS. The penalty for failing to file IRS Form 2290 on time is 4.5% of the total highway tax 2290 amount you owe, with additional 0.54% interest each month.

However, the penalty for filing your IRS Form 2290 but failing to pay your highway tax 2290 amount is 0.5% of the HVUT payment, substantially less than failing to file.

The interest is the same.

If you can’t afford to make your HVUT payment right this moment, file IRS Form 2290 anyway. 

There’s no reason to miss the deadline. The whole process takes a matter of minutes and can be done from your phone.

IRS 2290 Filing Tips

Save time by gathering information before you dive in. Here’s what you need for IRS Form 2290 filing:

-  EIN

You must have an EIN to file IRS 2290. If you need one, you can try to get one from the IRS in time, but we suggest calling TSNAmerica at 803.386.0320.

-  Business Information

You’ll need to enter your business name and address at the beginning of your IRS Form 2290.

-  VIN

This is your Vehicle Identification Number, and should be 17 characters long.

-  Authorized Signatory Details

This is the 5-digit unique signature PIN you’ll need to use to sign your IRS Form 2290.

-  Gross Taxable Weight

Your vehicle’s gross taxable weight is its weight when fully equipped for service, minus the weight of you and the load. You can find this on your cab card or sticker inside the door.

-  HVUT Payment Information

Pay your HVUT 2290 tax amount online fast. Leading IRS-authorized e-file providers like ExpressTruckTax will offer multiple payment options, including credit card, direct debit, EFW (Electronic Funds Transfer), and EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System).

Once you’re ready, choose an IRS-authorized online filing system. Filing IRS 2290 highway use tax online will save you loads of time and ensure that you receive your 2290 Schedule 1 fast

The Quickest Way to File

As mentioned, filing IRS 2290 and paying HVUT 2290 online will save you tons of time.

The entire process takes minutes.

IRS Form 2290 filing is coming to a close with the heavy vehicle use tax upcoming deadline.

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.

Things You Need To Know: HVUT, Highway Tax 2290, and IFTA Tax

0
Truck tax deadlines are approaching and truckers must stay on top of HVUT, Form 2290, and IFTA tax filing.
With every deadline comes more confusion.

You might think, “What are all these forms and payments, and why am I constantly dealing with them?”

Understanding HVUT, highway tax 2290, and IFTA tax will prepare you to file quickly each year and keep you from making filing mistakes.

Knowing the differences will also give you an idea of if you need to file, and when to file.

HVUT

HVUT, or Heavy Vehicle Use Tax, is a tax on heavy vehicles used to fund highway maintenance.

You must pay Heavy Highway Use Tax if your truck has a gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more and is driven on public highways over 5,000 miles per year. Gross weight is weight when fully equipped for service.

Heavy Highway Use Tax is an annual tax. The HVUT deadline is the same as the 2290 highway use tax form deadline. HVUT is also known as HVUT 2290 because of its connection with Form 2290, which we’ll talk about next.

Highway Tax 2290

Highway Tax 2290, or simply Form 2290, is the form used to pay your HVUT amount.

Form 2290 is also used to calculate the Heavy Highway Use Tax amount you owe, determine your truck’s category, claim an exemption or credit, and more.

Highway Tax 2290 proves why the HVUT 2290 amount you’re paying is what you’re paying.

You need an EIN to file 2290 Highway Use Tax Form. The deadline is the same as the HVUT 2290 deadline. File Highway Tax 2290 Form and pay HVUT 2290 by the end of the month after your first use month.

IFTA Tax

The IFTA tax is not related to HVUT 2290 and Highway Tax 2290 Form. IFTA, or International Fuel Tax Agreement, ensures that each state/province is paid the correct IFTA fuel tax.

IFTA fuel tax becomes important when vehicles travel frequently across state borders. If trucks fill up in one state and immediately cross to the next, the state they’re driving in is losing out.

With IFTA reporting, truckers track miles in each state.

You need to pay IFTA fuel tax quarterly if your vehicle has 2 axles and a gross vehicle weight or registered gross weight > 26,000 pounds, has a combined weight of 26,000 pounds or has 3 or more axles regardless of weight.

Here are the deadlines:
