Form 2290: Adding Suspended Vehicles

0
Form 2290: Adding Suspended Vehicles
Form 2290: Adding Suspended Vehicles
Since we’ve been talking to you about Form 2290 Amendments, we decided to switch gears and talk a bit about suspended vehicles and IRS Form 2290.

If you didn’t realize it on our last post about VIN corrections, we’re big on making the process easier.

Understanding Suspended Vehicles


In order to file a regular-usage vehicle as suspended, its mileage use on public highways must be 5,000 miles or less; and for an agricultural suspended vehicle, the mileage use must be 7,500 miles or less.

Regardless of the number of owners, the mileage use limit refers to the total mileage a vehicle is used during the taxable period.

Like we said, agricultural vehicles have different rules. An agricultural vehicle is any motor vehicle that is used for farming purposes primarily, and registered as a highway motor vehicle by state law, and is used for farming purposes for the entire period. A farming vehicle has a special tag or license plate that identifies its agricultural status.

While you have to claim a suspended vehicle like you would any tax filing, it’s still a different process.

So what are the steps? They are as follows:

  • Just like in your standard filing, you select your First Used Month & Year right away. 
  • After that, if you were filing your typical 2290, you would enter or import your Taxable Vehicles. If you are still filing your 2290, go ahead and do this. 
  • At the next step, you simply add your Suspended Vehicles like you did with your taxable vehicles. 
  • On the next few steps, you’re able to view your information and edit it if necessary. 

Finish everything up like you would with your normal HVUT 2290 filing!




While it’s tempting to just skip the taxes that confuse you, it’s important to make sure you file your Form 2290 in all of it's glory. If you have any questions about e-filing a suspended vehicle, reach our customer support experts at 704.234.6005.

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.
