How to File a VIN Correction with ExpressTruckTax

0
Hello, Trucking Nation! Having a correct VIN on your Form 2290 is very important, especially if you’d like to register a vehicle or renew its tags. So, if you’re looking to file a correction, you’ve come to the right place.

Not only is the process quick and easy, it’s also free for those who have e-filed their Form 2290 with us! If you haven’t done so yet, it’s simple to do! ExpressTruckTax is here to help.

Let's get started! Follow the three steps below:

Step 1: Create an Account or Log In


Once you’re in, click Start under Form 2290 Amendments, then select which amendment you’d like to file. In this instance, you will select VIN Correction.

Step 2: Make the Correction


Select to correct a return that you have either e-filed with us or somewhere else. Enter the vehicle’s first-used month, select Add VIN Correction, and enter the vehicle’s originally-reported VIN (the incorrect one).

If you have not filed through us before, enter the gross weight, check whether the vehicle is taxable or suspended, and then enter the new, correct VIN. If you wish to correct the VIN of more than one vehicle, click Save and Add Another. Now, if you have filed through us before, you only need to enter the incorrect and correct VIN to proceed.



Step 3: Review and Submit


If you haven’t done so already, this is the time to check for errors before submitting your information to the IRS. We wouldn’t want to file another amendment, now would we? The good news is that our Instant Audit also scans your return for any gaps or mistakes.

This is the big one! All that's left to do is click the green Transmit button to securely submit your VIN correction, and after the IRS accepts, a new and improved stamped Schedule 1 will be sent to you in minutes.

As always, if you need any help or have any questions, you can call the support team at 704.234.6005 or email them at support@expresstrucktax.com.

Remember, Trucking Nation, we’re here for you!

Correcting Information on Form 2290

0
There are occasions when the information needs to be corrected on Form 2290 after it has been submitted and accepted by the IRS.  The process to correct the information depends on what information needs to be corrected.

Many corrections will require a phone call to the IRS at 866-699-4096.  For typos, misspellings and name corrections, you will want to correct the information on your Schedule 1 and fax it into the IRS and the IRS will make the corrections.  They may require additional information to confirm the correction, but will let you know when you call the number listed above.

If you have the wrong EIN on your Schedule 1, you will want to correct the EIN and fax it along with a letter explaining that the EIN was wrong.  If the return was accepting with an EIN that was not yours, it means the EIN belongs to someone else and the IRS will have to figure out whose payment you made.  If you are told that you need to file a new 2290 and pay the taxes again and then file for a refund using Form 8849, call back until you talk to someone who will assist you without making you pay the tax again and have to wait for a refund.

If your business name changes for any reason, but the EIN remains the same, you will change the business name and fill out the Name Change form and MAIL to the IRS.  A fax will not be accepted as an original signature is required.

The easiest and most common correction is the VIN correction.  VIN corrections can be done online with ExpressTruckTax and are completely free, even if you did not use ExpressTruckTax to file the original return.  You would file a Form 2290 Amendment and choose the VIN Correction option.  It is completely free and takes only a couple minutes!

For any questions about Form 2290 Corrections, go to ExpressTruckTax.com or contact our Express Tax Support Center in Rock Hill, SC by phone at 704-234-6005 or email at support@ExpressTruckTax.com.  We have Spanish Support too!

It is easy to mistakenly enter an incorrect VIN on the Form 2290. Correcting a VIN(Vehicle Identification Number) is very easy in our system. Typically the IRS processing time is the same as a standard 2290 form. In order to file a VIN correction, the taxpayer simply needs to file a IRS 2290 Amendment.

If they already have an account with us,they will need to click the orange 'Create New Return' button from the 'Dashboard' page inside their account. Once they click this button, they will be asked what form they would like to file. They will need to choose 2290 Amendment and then select the VIN correction option. The system will then walk them through the VIN correction filing process. The drivers can e-file a VIN correction through us even if the original 2290 was not filed through ExpressTruckTax.

There is no charge to e-file a VINcorrection however they will need to enter a valid credit card in order to authenticate the filing. The card will not be charged.

We hope this helps. Please let us know if there is anything else we may do to be of assistance. If any of your drivers have additional questions about the VIN correction,they are more than welcome to contact our customer support line at 704-234-6005 and we will gladly assist.
