0
If you were to ask anyone who has been involved in the Trucking industry for a few years or more, they will be the first to tell you that there are many more business and economic responsibilities for truckers and Owner Operators besides simply getting something delivered at the right time and place.

This Form is so easy to E-File online, and thanks to Express Truck Tax, there is no reason to be late, as evidenced by the following points:

Not filing or not paying is a felony
Fines are bad enough, but it could be worse. Going to court can lead to criminal charges. The IRS & state governments could prosecute anyone who purposely cheats to avoid paying the IRS form 2290. It can also lead to time in prison.
IRS Penalties
Unless you enjoy IRS Audits and spending time in courtrooms, it is a terrible to not pay your taxes. The IRS can add all kinds of interest and penalties, but if you end up in court over the matter it will lead to the court costs as well as heavy fines.
Paying Taxes help improve Roads
Paying taxes is never a joyful experience, but you should get some gratification in the fact that much of the taxes paid for HVUT go back into the cost of roads and highway expenses. It just makes sense; if you enjoy using something, you shouldn’t mind paying for it.
Stay focused on your Trucking business
If these are not paid in a timely manner, the previously mentioned fines, court appearances, and possible jail time could seriously put a halt on your business.

Filing Federal HVUT Form 2290 in 2011

0
It has been a wild ride for those waiting to file Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax with IRS Form 2290 this year. Although the typical filing season begins in July, this year was different because the tax was set to expire this year. The lack of Congressional action to extend the tax legislation poised the threat of a shutdown of government supported transportation jobs. Although it took several passionate speeches from President Barack Obama concerning the loss of jobs and the negative effects that a shutdown would have on the economy to convince Democrats and Republicans in the House of Representatives and the Senate to act together, they did finally come together and agree to extend the current legislation. Although many industry experts agree that a more permanent piece of new legislation is needed to effectively regulate the industry, this was widely believed to be a step in the right direction.

As of right now, the Filing Season for the current Tax Period will officially begin November 1st, and all Heavy Vehicle Use Taxes will need to be filed by November 30th. This delay threw a lot of people for a loop when they tried to register their heavy vehicle. Since a Stamped Schedule 1 is required to register a vehicle with the DMV, no one was able to provide that over the past few months because the IRS did not accept Form 2290’s and thus did not give out any Stamped Schedule 1’s because that is a part of the 2290 form.

For those who need to file the IRS Form 2290 and receive a Stamped Schedule 1, it is possible to E-File this form online. This way you will receive a stamped Schedule 1 within minutes of filing. This process is much quicker and much more efficient than the old paper filing process. This is especially favorable because there is a shorter amount of time in which to file (Nov 1-30).

To e-file this tax from your home or office, all you need to do is go to the website for the IRS-Approved E-File Provider, Express Truck Tax: www.expresstrucktax.com. The filing process could not be simpler! Most users agree that it is even easier than paper-filing! Even if you have questions, Express Truck Tax has a US-based customer service team of Truck Tax Experts that are standing by to take any calls, emails, or online chats that you may have.

IRS New HVUT (form 2290) Regulations for 2011

0


There are several taxes that are imposed on those in the trucking industry each year. Heavy Vehicles travelling on public highways are subject to HVUT, or Heavy Vehicle Use Tax. These taxes can be filed by filing a Form 2290. Truckers, owner operators, and trucking companies were recently notified by the IRS that their next highway use tax return for filing HVUT (which is usually due on August 31) will instead be due on November 30, 2011. The primary reason for the extension of the due date is to reduce confusion and multiple filings of Form 2290 that could result if Congress reinstates or makes changes to the current highway use tax after September 30, 2011.

The previously mentioned Heavy Vehicle Use Tax applies to trucks, truck tractors and buses with a gross taxable weight of 55,000 pounds and above. There are also many detailed rules and regulations that apply to vehicles with minimal road use, logging/agricultural vehicles, vehicles transferred during the year, and also those whose first use month was during July. In typical scenarios, vans, pick-ups and panel trucks are not taxable because would [under normal circumstances] fall below the 55,000 pound requirement.

The recently determined filing deadline of November 30 for Form 2290 (Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return) applies to the tax period beginning on July 1, 2011. This does not only include those vehicles that were used during July, it also includes those whose first use month was during August or September. According to recent statements from the IRS, 2290 tax returns should not be filed and payments should not be made until November 1, 2011.

Regulations for new vehicles that need to be registered will also take effect. Any new vehicle that needs to be registered during July through October of 2011, state DMV’s are now required to accept a Stamped Schedule 1 from the previous year since it is not possible to receive a stamped Schedule 1 until November of 2011. If a vehicle was acquired within the current tax year, and there is not a stamped Schedule 1 for the previous year, the owner only needs to provide some form of proof of purchase to prove that the vehicle was recently placed in his/her possession.

Fortunately, once the Form 2290 is available, the electronic filing service: ExpressTruckTax.com will be able to E-File the form and send it to the IRS in minutes. Express Truck Tax is an IRS Authorized E-File provider for filing Form 2290. The E-Filing Process is very simple; the form can be completed in minutes, and it can be sent to the IRS as soon as it is finished. It is such a time saver when you compare it to waiting in the IRS office for hours or sending it via postal mail and waiting weeks for the IRS to process it.  All you will need is your basic information about yourself, and your truck.

What You Need to File Internal Revenue Service Form 2290 Online(HVUT)

0

To file the IRS Form 2290 for Heavy Vehicle Use Tax, there are a few key pieces of information you will need to know in order to receive a stamped Schedule 1 from the IRS. First and foremost, you should have an idea as to the number of miles driven by each vehicle, because if a vehicle was driven less than 5,000 miles (or 7,500 miles if agricultural) then it would technically be considered to be a credit vehicle. Other information that is key to filing Form 2290 is your Employee Identification Number (EIN), Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), and the taxable gross weight of the vehicle.

The Employee Identification Number is a required section of the Form 2290. This is a number that is unique to you, and the IRS uses it to identify a business entity. If you do not have an EIN, you can apply for one through the IRS website.  

Another necessary part of the Form 2290 is, of course, the Vehicle Identification Number. Every vehicle is required to have a VIN, which is a 17 character combination of numbers and letters.  This information can typically be found on the registration or title of the vehicle. In order to know how much tax is to be paid, you must also report the Taxable Gross Weight of the vehicle. This can be found by adding the following totals: unloaded weight of the vehicle fully equipped for service, unloaded weight of any trailers equipped for service and customarily used in combination with the vehicle, and the weight of the maximum load customarily carried on the vehicle and on any trailers customarily used in combination with the vehicle.

Once this information is obtained, the best way to file the Form 2290 is by using an IRS-approved E-File provider like ExpressTruckTax.com. Filing this form online is a much better option than mailing it in, or waiting in line at the IRS office. Filing Online through the secure servers of Express Truck Tax is safer than sending important tax documents via postal mail.  It is also much quicker. The IRS typically processes each return and sends it back to you in a matter of minutes. This helps you stay focused on what matters to you, not on endless paperwork, or long lines at the IRS office.
