3 Reasons Why Your IRS Form 2290 Was Rejected

3 Reasons Why Your IRS Form 2290 Was Rejected
3 Reasons why your IRS Form 2290 was Rejected
Thousands of truckers across the country are getting ready to e-file their Heavy Vehicle Use Tax return Form 2290, hoping to just press transmit and be done with it all.

But what happens when you e-file truck tax Form 2290 only to find out it was later REJECTED by the IRS? The last thing you want to find out is about a rejected 2290 on the truck tax due date!

Thankfully, when you e-file with ExpressTruckTax, you get unlimited re-filing for rejected returns.

Today, we’re going to examine why your 2290 may be rejected.

Rejected Because of EIN


Sometimes, filers will find that their Employer Identification Number is the source of their rejection.

This can sometimes happen if the EIN that you entered doesn’t match the EIN the IRS has on record.

If that’s the case, you need to contact the IRS directly to find out what information they have in their system.

If you have a brand new EIN, it will take on average about 10 business days for the EIN to register in the IRS system for you to e-file.

If you try to e-file your 2290 the same day that you receive your EIN, it will be rejected and the reason will be the "EIN does not match business name".

After your new EIN is registered in the IRS system, you can simply re-transmit your 2290 return (for free) and it should be accepted as long as there aren’t any more errors.

Rejected Because of Duplicate Filing


Your 2290 can only be accepted by the IRS one time. If you receive this particular rejection, it means your 2290 has already been filed and confirmed by the IRS.

The good part about this rejection, is that it requires no fix because your return has already been filed!

Rejected for Routing Issues


If you face a Routing Transit Number Rejection, it has to do with your payment. If you paid using the Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW) option, a bank routing number is required.

If the wrong information was entered for your routing number, your 2290 will be rejected. You can correct the routing and re-transmit to the IRS and should receive confirmation of acceptance in only a few minutes.

Note: If you entered the incorrect routing number or bank account number and the return is accepted, it is up to you to contact the IRS to resolve the issue. For best practices, always double check your numbers before transmitting your return to the IRS.

Hopefully, you’ll have a good experience e-filing Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290. The deadline is fast approaching, so be ready!

Note: The deadline to e-file Form 2290 online for 2016-2017 is August 31.

If you have any questions about rejected returns, you can reach our customer support experts at 704.234.6005.

Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) Information

0
HVUT is the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax that is a fee assessed annually 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.

You must file Form 2290 for the tax period beginning on July 1, 2012, and ending on June 30, 2013, if a taxable highway motor vehicle (defined below) is registered, or required to be registered, in your name under state, District of Columbia, Canadian, or Mexican law at the time of its first use during the period and the vehicle has a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more.

There are a few instances where a vehicle is exempt from paying the HVUT tax, even if most of those instances; a Form 2290 is required to be filed even if no tax is due. You can find detailed information on the IRS site at www.irs.gov/trucker.

You need: Business Details - Business Name (Sole proprietor can use their legal name) and address, EIN (Employer Identification Number), details of the authorized signatory.

Vehicle Details - Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and Gross Weight of the Vehicle

Form of IRS payment- When E-Filing with ExpressTruckTax you have 3 options for paying any tax amounts due.  Electronic Funds Withdrawl (EFW) using your bank routing number and bank account number, Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) by visiting EFTPS.gov or by mailing in a check or money order. We suggest EFW.

Heavy Vehicle Use Taxes must be filed using the Form 2290 on an annual basis. The Tax period for Heavy Vehicles begins on July 1st and ends on June 30th.The Annual renewal of your Form 2290 for a new tax period IS DUE BY August 31st each year.  If your vehicle is placed in service anytime during the tax year, the Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the following month. The tax will be prorated based on the number of months the vehicle will have been used during the tax year. If a vehicle was used during any part of a month, the tax will be calculated for that month as a whole.

For New Vehicles placed in service, the IRS Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the month following the month of first use. For example, if you purchase and first use a vehicle in January, you must file a Form 2290 by the end of February.

You can still paper file, but the IRS requires anyone filing for 25 or more vehicles do so electronically and recommends that everyone do so.

Electronically: File Form 2290 electronically through any electronic return originator (ERO), transmitter, and/or intermediate service provider (ISP) participating in the IRS e-file program for excise taxes, such as ExpressTruckTax.com. For more information on e-file, visit the IRS website at www.irs.gov/Filing or visit www.irs.gov/Businesses.

Paper: Mail Form 2290 to the address shown under Where to File. If you did not pay the tax using the Electronic Funds Transfer or Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS), mail Form 2290-V and your check or money order with Form 2290.

IRS Labor Day Planned Maintenance Outage

0
The IRS shut down many of its services at 1PM EST on Friday, August 31, 2012 and will remain down until Tuesday, September 4, 2012 for a planned maintenance and upgrading an electrical system.

Some of the services that will be affected by the temporary outage are:
  • Toll-Free Services
  • Employee Identification Numbers
  • Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS)
  • E-Filing Services

For specific details on which IRS departments and services will be unavailable, go to www.irs.gov/uac/Available-IRS-Services-during-the-Labor-Day-Planned-Maintenance-Outage.

August 31, 2012 marked the Form 2290 for Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Deadline.  If you were mailing in your return, it had to be postmarked by Friday, August 31, 2012 in order to meet the deadline.  If you did not get your return filed on time, the IRS has extended the E-Filing Form 2290 deadline until Friday, September 7, 2012.  So you can still file your return to meet the extended E-File Deadline.

Simply go to ExpressTruckTax.com to set up your account.  You will be prompted to enter your business details, including EIN, Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), and Gross Weight of the Vehicle (Combined with maximum load).  You will be able to choose your IRS payment option, either Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFT), Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) or Check/Money Order.  Once the return is complete you will be prompted to transmit the return.  

Normally you receive your Schedule 1 within minutes, but due to the IRS Maintenance, you will not receive your Schedule 1 until after the IRS resumes normal business activity after noon on Tuesday, September 4, 2012.

Although the deadline has been extended, we encourage you to get your returns filed now. If you have any questions, please contact us at our US based customer support center in Rock Hill, SC at 704-234-6005 or email us at support@ExpressTruckTax.com.

Last Minute Tips for E-Filing Form 2290

0
ExpressTruckTax.com is the quickest, easiest, and best value for filing your Form 2290 (Heavy Truck Use Tax) online with the IRS. The August 31st due date for the tax is getting closer, and here are a few points to keep in mind while E-Filing.

  • Review your VIN# [Vehicle Identification Number]
  • Sign and date your return electronically
  • Choose IRS payment option
  • Review all the information
  • Double check your Business Name
  • E-File Your 2290 Return

Choose an IRS payment option:
There are several options to pay the HVUT taxes with the IRS.
  • Electronic Funds Withdrawal, or Direct Debit: The IRS will collect the taxes due after they are provided with a bank account number and routing number
  • EFTPS: You have to schedule the payment to the IRS by going to EFTPS.gov.

Review Tax ID Numbers
Carefully check Tax Identification numbers on your return.

Review Your Return
