The 2290 Pre-Filing Season Is Now Open!

0
Ugh, you keep hearing about your stamped Schedule 1 and your 2290, but the filing season doesn’t open until July 1st. What a pain to have to wait to file. But wait, you don’t have to wait weeks to file your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax  Form 2290 because you can pre-file with ExpressTruckTax beginning on June 1st, which is today!

Pre-Filing With Express Truck Tax


Why wait until July 1st to file when you can pre-file your Form 2290 today? Especially when the pre-filing process is incredibly easy. All you have to do is create an account and follow the step-by-step guide to complete the e-filing process almost instantly and your form will be transmitted directly to the IRS as soon as the filing season opens.

You’ll begin by entering the basic information for your business like the name, address, and EIN (Employer Identification Number).

Also, you will need information about your heavy vehicles to complete your Form 2290, such as their VIN or Vehicle Identification Number and taxable gross weight. Remember that suspended vehicles must be included.

A suspended vehicle is one that is exempt from HVUT taxes for the current tax season. Vehicles with less than 5,000 miles are exempt, along with agricultural vehicles with less than 7,500 miles.

When you’ve finished entering your information we will automatically calculate the amount of HVUT you owe and you can pay the IRS with direct debit or electronic funds withdrawal, EFTPS, check or money order.

Then you’ll be presented with a summary of your information to make sure you’ve entered everything correctly and we will perform an audit check to catch any basic errors. Once any mistakes have been corrected your form will be complete. It will be transmitted to the IRS on July 1st unless you specify that you would like for it to be sent at a later date.

As soon as the IRS stamps your Schedule 1 you’ll receive a copy via email, but you can also choose to receive a copy via text or fax.

The process is so easy, that you don’t even need a computer to file. Download the free ExpressTruckTax app to pre-file your 2290 right from your smartphone or tablet. This makes it incredibly easy to file at any time, from any location.

Pre-File Over The Phone With TSNAmerica


If you want to just be able to take out your phone and dial a number to have a US-based representative file your Form 2290 for you then Call TSNAmerica at 803.386.0320. As a result of spending a few minutes on the phone, your 2290 will be transmitted to the IRS on July 1st. You’ll also receive a copy of your Schedule 1 via email as soon as the IRS stamps it.

Need Any Assistance?

Transferred Truck During 2290 Tax Year

0

A common question our Support Team at ExpressTruckTax receives is how to handle the situation when a vehicle is transferred to another company during the tax year.  Assuming the Form 2290 was filed and the tax was paid for the current year, you would need to file a new Form 2290 under the new business name and EIN.  On the return, you will be able to claim the refund for the taxes that were paid under the previous business name and EIN.  You will need to call the IRS directly and they will walk you through the process or you can have a service provider, like Truck Services of North America to do it for you.

NOTE: The Form 2290 must be filed no later than the end of the month following when the transfer took place.  Example, if you formed a new business and the vehicles began operating under the new business name in February, your Form 2290 would have to be filed no later than March 31st.  If you file after March 31st, the return will be considered late and you may incur penalty fees.

What is the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Used For?

0

The Heavy Vehicle Use Tax or HVUT is an annual fee assessed on heavy vehicles operating on public highways at registered gross weights equal to or exceeding 55,000 pounds. The gross taxable weight of a vehicle is determined by adding the unloaded weight of the motor vehicle and any trailers together with the maximum load customarily carried on-road by the truck-trailer combination. IRS Form 2290 is filed annually to pay the HVUT due on the taxable vehicle and proof of payment is the Stamped Schedule 1.

The damage to the road surface caused by heavy trucks is 160,000 times more than that of a car, according to the findings of the American Association of State Highways Official (AASHO) road test. The tax, which is based on the vehicle weight, is a significant source of transportation funding in the US. The HVUT ensures that operators of heavy trucks pay a little more for the highway network relative to the motorists than the light trucks who meet their responsibility through other forms of taxes (e.g., registration fees, motor fuel taxes) but do less damage to the system.  The monies collected are used to help pay for road repairs and maintenance.

The IRS has simplified the process of filing Form 2290 and paying your HVUT taxes with the ability to E-File.  Anyone who is filing a return with 25 or more vehicles is required to file electronically, but everyone is encouraged to do so.  Through an IRS Authorized E-File Provider, like ExpressTruckTax.com, you can file your Form 2290, pay your HVUT taxes owed to the IRS and receive your Stamped Schedule 1 within minutes.  Having the option to E-File makes the annual filing process quick and easy.

Form 2290 Suspended Vehicles

0
If a highway motor vehicle does not exceed mileage 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles) it is considered suspended and is exempt from tax. Mileage use limit means the use of a vehicle on public highways 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 used during a period, regardless of the number of owners.

An agricultural vehicle is any highway motor vehicle that is:
  1. Used (or expected to be used) primarily for farming purposes, and
  2. Registered (under state laws) as a highway motor vehicle used for farming purposes for the entire period. A special tag or license plate identifying the vehicle as used for farming is not required for it to be considered an agricultural vehicle.

So why would do you have to file if there is no tax due?  In order to obtain your registration and/or tags, state require and Stamped Schedule 1 from the IRS for all vehicles 55,000 lbs or more.  You must file Form 2290 in order to receive your Stamped Schedule 1.

Determining First Use Month

0


When E-Filing Form 2290 with ExpressTruckTax, you will be asked to provide the first use date for the vehicle. This dates refers to the time when the vehicle was placed in service during the tax period.  If the vehicle has been placed in service for  previous years and will continue to be in service this year, the first use month will be July.  This is because the tax period for Heavy Vehicle Use Taxes begins in July and ends in June.

If a new vehicle is placed in service during the tax period, the first use month will be the month in which the vehicle was first used. If a vehicle was only used for part of the tax period, the tax will be prorated based on the number of months the vehicle was actually used. For example, if a vehicle was used on January 27th, it will be taxed as though it was used the entire month, regardless of the fact it was only used for a couple of days, and the tax will be based on 6 months, instead of the full year.

To E-File the Form 2290 online now, go to ExpressTruckTax.com or contact our Express Tax Support Center in Rock Hill, SC at 704-234-6005 or email us at support@ExpressTruckTax.com.  We have Spanish Support too!
