Save Time & Bulk Upload Multiple 2290 Forms

0
Save Time & Bulk Upload Multiple 2290 Forms
One of the best things about the trucking industry is how diverse it is.

One trucker might be an owner-operator, the other might be a company man for a large fleet. Either way, they’re going to have to file Form 2290. Taxable vehicles include any highway motor vehicles that have a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more.

So that probably covers your entire fleet. But how can you file HVUT for all of your vehicles? The answer is simple: bulk uploading and ExpressTruckTax's TruckZone feature.

Why Should I Bulk Upload?


First of all, it’s easy. Instead of entering each record one-by-one, you fill out a spreadsheet and our program does the rest.

Here’s what you do:

  • Login to our system, download the official spreadsheet. 
  • Go field by field and enter the appropriate information in the right format. 
  • After the form is complete, head back to ExpressTruckTax and upload the file.
  • Our software will check for errors and make sure each field is correct. 
  • Note, if you already have your own spreadsheet use our smart upload. We will make sure fields match on our end, so that you don’t waste time making a new spreadsheet. 
  • Make sure everything looks right.
  • Pay and transmit!

Finally, once you get your fleet’s vehicles uploaded, your trucks will be saved year to year thanks to our TruckZone.


What Is TruckZone?


When you need to e-file Form 2290 for multiple vehicles, TruckZone is a lifesafer. Working as virtual fleet, TruckZone keeps all of your vehicles on record so you can access them at any time.

Let’s say you need to file HVUT for 10 trucks. This feature lets you create your own truck tax zone where you can select the 10 trucks which need an HUT filing. In a few minutes, you can e-file form 2290 for all 10, and receive 10 stamped Schedule 1’s in just minutes.

2290 Filing for CPAs

2290 Filing for CPAs
2290 Filing for CPAs
We spend a lot of time conversing with truckers around these parts, but we’re overlooking a key audience of filers out there.

That’s right, to all of our accountant friends out there - we don’t mean to ignore you. So this post is for you!

If you’re a CPA who needs to file form 2290 online, read ahead!

Understanding Taxable Vehicles


Most CPA's know this, but if you’re new to the game, let’s touch up on taxable vehicles.

A taxable highway motor vehicle includes any self-propelled vehicle with a gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more designed to carry a load over public highways, whether or not also designed to perform other functions.

Examples of these heavy highway vehicles include trucks, truck tractors, and buses.

Some vehicles, like logging and agricultural trucks, have a different set of rules. ExpressTruckTax walks you through all those road bumps, though.

Welcome to the TruckZone


If you’re a CPA, you’re probably not filing for a single truck. With the TruckZone, you can manage all of your vehicles in one place.

As you add vehicles, we store them in the TruckZone. The next time you go to file IRS 2290s, you can easily retrieve the trucks and drivers. You can even search by truck or unit number, driver, VIN, month filed, and even by the date the Schedule 1 was received.

The ExpressTruckTax Truck Zone can upload hundreds even thousands of trucks at one time.

If you need to file multiple Form 2290 returns, we’ve broken down the steps to e-file multiple 2290 forms.

If you have any issues with bulk uploading or transmitting, please contact our customer support experts at 704.234.6005.

Bulk Uploading: HVUT for Fleets

0
Just a quick update for our fleet managers out there! When you need to file HVUT for a fleet of vehicles, take advantage of our easy-to-use bulk upload feature.










Start by filling out First Used Month & Year, and then select Bulk Upload Using a File when you’re on the Taxable Vehicles tab.






The nice thing is, we provide an Excel template you can use to upload your data to our sites. Select Express Upload to continue.



Just follow these three steps! Download the template by following the “clicking here” link, fill out the saved file, and then upload the completed spreadsheet!




The excel template is easy to navigate, and has clear labels and drop down menus with itemized selections for your filing convenience.




If you make a filing error, our system will let you know! Click “View Upload Errors” to examine the errors. Once your errors are identified, simply fix the flawed entries in your downloaded spreadsheet and then re-upload the file by clicking “Bulk Upload using a File” again.




After that, you can view, file, and pay your HVUT taxes all at once! You have to admit, that’s way easier than doing each vehicle one-by-one.





While we think bulk uploading is easier, you may still run into a question we can answer for you. We’ll always be ready to help you by phone or email. Give us a call at 704.234.6005 if you need assistance!
