Get Your Stamped Schedule 1 Today

0
What a day to be a trucker! The IRS is now officially processing Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) 2290 returns! That means you can file today and instantly receive a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 via email in about 15 minutes.

Why wait to file when ExpressTruckTax makes it extremely easy to file your 2290 return in just a few minutes? The process is simple, check out the e-filing instructions below.

How to File Your 2290 With ExpressTruckTax


Step 1: You begin by creating your free account with expressTruckTax using your email address and personal password. Then in the dashboard, you’ll see the exclusive ExpressTruckTax wallet feature where you can purchase prepaid filing credits at a 10% discount. 

 Step 2: When you’re ready to file click the orange ‘Start New Return’ button and enter the basic information for your business such as the name, address, and EIN or Employer Identification number. Remember, you need an EIN to file and can apply for one with the IRS online. It will take about two weeks for it to update in the IRS’s system.

Step 3: Then you’ll enter your tax year and your vehicle’s first used month. Form 2290 is filed based on your vehicles first used month and is due the last day of the month after it’s first used month. For example, if you first use your vehicle in April then your Form 2290 is due on May 31st. Then you’ll file annually by the August 31st deadline.

The current tax period runs from July 1st, 2017 until June 30th, 2018, and your schedule 1 for the 2016-2017 season expired on June 30th, 2017.

Step 4: Next you’ll enter information for your vehicle including the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and taxable gross weight. You’ll also select if your vehicle was used for any special purposes such as logging or agricultural uses. Remember suspended vehicles must be filed for as well.

Step 5: Relax as we calculate how much you’ll owe the IRS for you, so you’ll know exactly how much to pay. Then select one of the following payment options to pay the IRS: Direct Debit or Electronic Funds Withdrawal, EFTPS, Check or Money Order.

Step 6: You’ll be presented with a summary of your information to make sure all of your information was entered correctly. VINs for example, are the number one Form 2290 mistake. Then our system will perform audit check on your form to catch any basic errors.

Step 7: Once any corrections have been made and you’re ready to transmit your form directly to the IRS enter a 5-digit code of your choice at the bottom of the form to electronically sign and transmit it.   

Step 8: Do your happy dance because depending on IRS volume in about 10 to 15 minutes you’ll receive a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 via email. You can also elect to receive a copy via text and postal mail.

We're Accepting 2290 Returns Before The IRS

0
The 2290 season is officially here! Usually, the IRS begins accepting returns on July 1st, but since that's a Saturday they won't let you file until the next business day,  Monday, July 3rd.

However, you don't have to wait, because you can file your 2290 with ExpressTruckTax tomorrow, on July 1st. This means you can go ahead and get your 2290 out of the way so you can enjoy your July 4th holiday!

Important: But why wait until tomorrow? Today, June 30th, is the last day to pre-file with ExpressTruckTax. It's also the last day to get 10% off with the PROMOCODE: PREFILE17 for a single truck and PROMOCODE: PREFILE25 for 2-24 trucks.

The sooner you file then the sooner your 2290 return will be processed, approved, or rejected depending on IRS volume. So, we encourage you to file as soon as possible with ExpressTruckTax to beat the rush. We also have a few reminders for you to keep in mind as you prepare to file.

HVUT 2290 Reminders


- If you own a heavy vehicle with a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more then you’re required by law to file your HVUT Form 2290 in order to get a copy of your stamped Schedule 1, which serves as your proof of payment. You must file for all taxable highway motor vehicles that are required to be registered in your name under state, District of Columbia, Canadians, or Mexican law. 

- For new vehicles, your Form 2290 is due on the last day of the month after your first use month. For example, if you first use your new truck in October then your 2290 would be due on November 31st. Then you will renew it annually by the August 31st deadline. Your schedule 1 for the previous tax period will expire on June 30th.

- In order to complete your 2290 Form you need your business name, and address (your personal details will work if you’re a sole proprietor), and EIN (Employer Identification Number). For your vehicle you’ll need your first use month, VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), taxable gross weight, and be sure to include if your vehicle was used for any special purposes such as logging or agricultural uses. 

- Suspended vehicles must be included when you file. A suspended vehicle is one that is expected to be used for 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles). Suspended or credit vehicles also include ones that were destroyed, stolen, or sold.

- You have to file your Form 2290 and you have to pay your HVUT to the IRS. Your payment options include direct debit or electronic funds withdrawal (EFW), EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System) or check or money order. 

- You can file over the phone! Just give TSNAmerica a call at 803.386.0320 to have a US-based representative file your 2290 for you, over the phone. That’s right, you can handle your 2290 with one phone call. As a result, you’ll receive a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 via email in about 15 minutes. 

ExpressTruckTax is Here to Help


Use our IRS authorized step-by-step e-filing guide to knock out your Form 2290 in a blink of an eye. Then you’ll have a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 sent to your email within minutes. You can also elect to receive a copy via test or postal mail.

No computer? No problem. Use the ExpressTruckTax Mobile App to complete your Form 2290 instantly on your smartphone or tablet at any time, from any location.

Save Time & Bulk Upload Multiple 2290 Forms

Save Time & Bulk Upload Multiple 2290 Forms
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.

With TruckZone and bulk uploading in your virtual tax toolbox, you’ll be the master of heavy vehicle use taxes!

Working Together in the Trucking Industry

0
You hear of it all the time—truckers dealing with nightmare dispatchers, pushing them to their limits and making the job dangerous.

And from the dispatcher’s desk you’d probably hear a slew of bad trucker stories.

But we’re not here to point fingers!

We’re actually here to discuss communication between the many facets of the trucking industry.

Start from the Top


Truckers take the freight where it needs to go. Everybody knows that!

But business plans, shipment orders, and staffing requirements come from the top half of the industry. Sure, sometimes it's fun to dog on the suits in the offices, but they do play a vital role in the industry.

With support staff including managers, sales teams, dispatchers, communications professionals, and mechanics, truckers aren’t the only hats in the business.

But they sure are the most important! Much like an assembly line or a rowing team, everyone needs to play their part, but the truckers are your star athletes.

With the right people at the top watching out for drivers, we’ll be in a good spot as an industry.

People Are People


Sometimes it's easy for both sides of the industry to forget they’re dealing with people.

As a trucker, you KNOW you’re a person, but it's sometimes hard to get along with someone when your dispatcher sees you just as a number they’re tracking.

You represent a set of statistics, yes, but you’re still a person.

And you know more than anyone that electronic devices shooting out numbers can’t match up to human intuition.

On the flip side, the dispatchers, managers, and clients you deal with are also trying to do a job.

Just like you sometimes have a bad day, they do, too. And they also have to deal with all of their drivers’ bad days, too.

So above all else, make sure both sides use people skills and we can make working together a lot easier for the whole industry.

The Rig vs. The Office


You might know how we feel about offices already.

That job works for some, but it's a different ballgame altogether. An office is a field where employees need to work together, day to day.

There are lots of spoken and unspoken rules about how coworkers can act and speak to each other.

Yet as a trucker, you are more frank with your thoughts and feedback, like a warrior-poet strapped to 18 wheels of philosophy. You’ll share your thoughts with whoever you please!

This might come as a shock to anyone who is new to the industry, or has minimal contact with truckers on a daily basis.

That’s not your fault, by any means. But with a little understanding, both sides can communicate better.

Let's Work Together


But when it comes down to it, the best thing you can do as a driver, a dispatcher, or a manager is to keep the people in your industry on your good side.

A positive attitude, some kindness, and mutual respect will go far.

There are always going to be people who grind your gears, but with some honest effort and respect, there can be plenty of personal friendships and professional alliances you rely on in this job.

When it comes to working together, let us work with you on your HVUT 2290s this next truck tax season. If you have questions about filing Form 2290, reach out to our support experts at Support@ExpressTruckTax.com and by phone at 704.234.6005.

How do you think we can improve communication between players in the trucking industry?

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.

EIN Is REQUIRED to File Form 2290

0

If you are filing Form 2290 for Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT), you must have an EIN to file the return. The IRS does not accept Social Security Numbers for the Form 2290. An EIN is an Employer Identification Number, also known as a Federal Tax Identification Number, and can be used to verify a business entity.

If you do not have an EIN, you can apply for one online through the IRS website or if you don’t have the time or unable to get to a computer, you can have a service provider, like Truck Services of North America to do it for you.

NOTE: Remember, for vehicles first used in January, the due date to file your Form 2290 is February 28, 2014. While you can get your EIN immediately, it can take the IRS up to 10 business days to update new EINs into their system; so you will want to get your EIN today to ensure it is in the system by the deadline!

Once your EIN is in the IRS system or if you already have one, you can file your Form 2290 return and receive your Stamped Schedule 1 within minutes at ExpressTruckTax. To E-File 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!

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.
