The Most Common Reasons For Form 2290 Rejections

The HVUT deadline is racing towards us at full speed! Friday, August 31st is the last day to file without IRS penalties and interest! While you might be tempted to wait until the last minute, it’s important to give yourself enough time to file your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax 2290 Forms. If your form is rejected, then it’s up to you to correct it and retransmit it to the IRS in time; otherwise, you will still face late filing penalties.


Why 2290 Forms Are Commonly Rejected

So why wait? Go ahead and use ExpressTruckTax to quickly and conveniently knock out your IRS Form 2290 today. As a bonus, use the following tips about why 2290 forms are commonly rejected to get yours accepted the first time.


EIN Problems

You need an EIN or Employer Identification Number to complete your IRS Form 2290. There’s no way around it. If you use your SSN (Social Security Number) in place of your EIN when you file Form 2290, it will be rejected instantly.

Duplicated IRS Form 2290

Your rig’s VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) can only be filed for once during the HVUT tax period. Duplicates will be rejected, so make sure that you’re filing for the current tax period which runs from July 1st, 2018 to June 30th, 2019. If you accidentally filed for the previous tax period then that could be why your form is considered a duplicate.

You also need to make sure that you enter your VIN correctly. If it’s one character off, then your form could get rejected. If your form is rejected for this reason don’t panic, you can quickly and easily file free VIN corrections with ExpressTruckTax.

RTN Errors

You can pay the amount of HVUT you owe to the IRS through direct debit or electronic funds withdrawal, and that process involves providing your bank account number and RTN (Routing Transfer Number).

If you enter this information with as little as one character off, the IRS will not be able to debit the funds, and your form will be rejected. This is also the case if you do not have enough funds in your account to cover the full amount.

Enter your information, which can be found on one of your checks, correctly. If your form is rejected for an incorrect RTN or insufficient funds you will need to edit your form and retransmit it or choose a different payment method.

When Filing Your Form 2290…

What You Need to Know About EINs And 2290 Form 2018

New owner operator getting his trucking business EIN number
Attention all truckers! The Heavy Vehicle Use Tax season is barreling at us at full speed! No use trying to jump out of the way. Your only option to avoid being run over by the IRS is to file your HVUT 2290 before the deadline. Here is what you need to know about EINs and 2290 Form 2018.

What You Need to Know About EINs And 2290 Form 2018

Before we get into pre-filing or filing your IRS Form 2290, let's go over a critical piece of information you will need to have. As an owner-operator, you are required to have an employer identification number, or more commonly known as an EIN. It is used by the IRS to identify your trucking business. EINs are assigned to companies operating in the United States to identify them for tax reporting purposes.

What is an EIN Number?

Your trucking business’s EIN will be a string of nine digits, similar to your Social Security Number, but they can be easily distinguished because of their format (EIN: 12-3456789 SSN:123-456-789). Although this number is labeled as identification for “employers,” your trucking business is still required to have one.

An EIN number can also be referred to as a Federal Tax Identification Number or Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN Number).

What is the Use of an EIN Number?

You will use an EIN or Tax Identification Number on trucking licenses, permits, and tax returns, as well as any other forms or applications that require you to file under your trucking business’s IRS number. You will also need an EIN to open a trucking business bank account. I highly suggest this so you can keep your personal and business account separate.





How do I Apply for an EIN?

If you are transitioning from a company driver to an Owner-Operator, applying for an EIN number is a relatively simple process. It will take you less than 10 minutes to request your EIN number over the phone with our sister product, TSNAmerica.

However, once you apply, please keep in mind, it will take approximately two weeks for it to be active in the IRS database.

Your EIN Number is a unique code that never expires. However, you may need a new EIN if you declare bankruptcy, take on new partners, or if you purchase or inherit another existing business.

IRS Form 2290 And Your EIN Number

When it comes to the information on your IRS Form 2290 such as your business name and address, it will need to match what the IRS has on file, or it could be rejected. You can see if your information matches what the IRS has on file by contacting the IRS directly. IRS Customer Service Phone Number: (800)829-4933

How to File 2290 Online?

Why wait when you can go ahead and knock out your 2290 Form 2018 today? Go ahead and file 2290 online with ExpressTruckTax now. Simply follow our step-by-step filing guide to complete your IRS 2290 Form instantly. As a result, your IRS Form 2290 will be transmitted directly to the IRS and you will get your Stamped Schedule 1 when the IRS starts accepting returns on July 1st.

If you are currently on the run and don’t have the time to go online to file, you can file over the phone with our sister product, TSNAmerica. Give them a call and an outstanding US-based representative will file your 2290 Form 2018 for you! No need to pay when you file just be sure to do so before August 31st.
