How Does Form 8849 Effect My 2290?

0

Alright, 2290 season is coming, and along with your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) comes a lot of questions and sometimes a little confusion. Sometimes while filing your Form 2290 you might see information about Form 8849, but what’s that? Do you need to be concerned with it? Today we’re here with the 8849 facts to answer your questions.

Form 8849


Form 8849 is the Claim or Refund of Excise Taxes Form. Excise taxes are the taxes paid on goods when they’re purchased and they’re often included in the price. An example of one of these goods is gasoline, hints your IFTA tax. Also, excise taxes include activities, such as highway usage by trucks.

Highway usage?! Now that might ring a bell because if you drive a qualifying vehicle of 55,000 pounds or more then you are required to file Form 2290 in order to get a copy of your stamped Schedule 1. 

After filing your Form 2290 you can File Form 8849 to claim a credit or a refund on the amount of  HVUT paid. Anyone can file this form if they need to claim a refund or a credit.

You can claim credits or refunds for vehicles that were stolen, sold, or destroyed. You can also claim credits for vehicles that were only used for 5,000 miles or less on public highways and 7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles used during the tax period.

Just remember, before you can File Form 8849 you need to file your Form 2290 and pay any Heavy Vehicle Taxes owed to the IRS for the current tax season first.

All you need to File Form 8849 is your name, EIN, and address, but it needs to match what the IRS has on file. You can verify your information by calling the IRS directly at 1-800-829-1040.  

If you’ve already filed your 2290 then you should already have your Employee Identification Number, as the IRS requires you to have one to complete your return.

If you haven’t filed your 2290 and you need an EIN you can apply for one online with the IRS. It will take about 15 days for the EIN to become active if the e-filing system and forms may be rejected during that time.

Also, you will need the information for the vehicle that you’re claiming a refund for with details as to why you’re claiming a credit or refund, such as if it was stolen, sold, or destroyed with the date that the incident occurred.

Pre-File With TSNAmerica


The faster you pre-file your Form 2290 then the faster you can claim a refund or credit with Form 8849. Call our sister company TSNAmerica at 803.386.0320 and they’ll file your Form 2290 for you over the phone. Your return will be transmitted to the IRS on July 1st unless you would like it sent at a later date. The process is as easy as making a simple phone call.

HVUT Credits: Selling & Purchasing Vehicles

0
We’re a few weeks into 2016, and by this point you might have grown your fleet with a used (or new to you) truck. Or maybe you’re an Owner-Operator who is replacing an old vehicle. I mean, it looks like some sleeper trucks are just getting cheaper and cheaper. While you’re excited to be on the road in the new rig, it’s vital that you have your HVUT accounted for. With ExpressTruckTax, adding a credit for sold vehicles to your 2290 is easy.

How Do HVUT Credits Work?

When a vehicle is purchased from another owner who already paid their HVUT fees, the vehicle is covered until the end of the month of purchase. From the first day of the following month, it’s up to the new owner to pay the vehicle’s HVUT from the first day of that month to the end of the tax year.


With that said, it’s important to understand that the heavy vehicle use taxes DO NOT transfer from one owner to another. You’re required to file a Form 2290 and pay taxes on any qualifying taxable vehicle. The taxes also don’t transfer from your old vehicle to your new one! So if you sold your old truck after buying a new one, it’s the same process (just with the roles reversed). It’s annoying, sure, but you still have to do it.


Basically, the seller gets credited for the taxes they paid before they sold the vehicle, and the buyer owes the difference. And if you’re a seller, there are two ways to approach the credit. You can get the credit for the tax paid on your next Form 2290 filed or the refund can be claimed through Form 8849, if you don’t want to wait until the tax period ends.

Why don’t we just see how it’s done real quick?



What Are the Tax Implications When Buying or Selling a Suspended Vehicle?

Well, suspended vehicles come with a specific set of tax implications regarding their sale. If you sell a vehicle under suspension, you need to provide the following information:

  • Your name, address, and EIN,
  • VIN Number,
  • Date of the sale,
  • Odometer reading at the beginning of the period,
  • Odometer reading at the time of sale, and
  • Buyer's name, address, and EIN.

If everything is reported like above and the use of the vehicle exceeds the mileage use limit for the period after the purchase (including highway mileage recorded by the former owner), the new owner would be liable for the tax on the vehicle. If the former owner didn’t provide the required statement to the new owner, then the former owner would be held liable for that tax period.

With your new rig ready for the road, you can get back out there to the long haul. Don’t forget, after you pay your HVUT for this tax period, you’ll still be liable to pay for the new period that starts July 1st, 2016!

If you run into any questions about credits on ExpressTruckTax, our US-based bilingual support team is available through phone, email, and even live chat. Reach us by phone at 704.234.6005, or by email at support@expresstrucktax.com.

Who's Eligible for an HVUT Refund?

0
Welcome back, Trucking Nation! Let’s talk about what everybody likes about filing taxes: getting a refund! We all enjoy getting paid. Remember when you filed your Form 2290 with the IRS and paid your HVUT? Well, you may be eligible for a refund under certain circumstances. Let’s look at how to know if you’re eligible.

Refund Eligibility


There are a few cases where you will be eligible for a refund of your HVUT tax:
  • A stolen, destroyed, or sold vehicle
  • A vehicle you drove less than the mileage limit (5,000 miles or 7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles)
  • Overpayment on Form 2290

You will not be eligible for a refund if:
  • You sometimes drive at a lower Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) than you reported
  • You used your vehicle only part of the year but still exceeded the mileage limit.

So you’ve determined that you qualify for an HVUT refund. What do you have to do to get it? Glad you asked! With ExpressTruckTax, it’s a very simple process.


How to e-file an 8849



If you filed your Form 2290 with ExpressTruckTax, Form 8849 will be generated automatically if you’re filing for a credit vehicle and the system determines the credit is greater than the tax amount owed on the return.

When your vehicle is stolen, destroyed, or sold, or you paid taxes on a vehicle traveling under the mileage limit for the year, you’ll need to follow these steps:

  • Log in to your ExpressTruckTax account.
  • Click on “Start a New Return” and then “Start” under “Form 8849 Schedule 6.”
  • For any trucks stolen, destroyed, or sold during the past tax year, enter the VIN, GVW, the first month it was used, and the date each vehicle was sold, lost, or destroyed.
  • If you have any trucks that qualify for a low mileage credit, enter the VIN, GVW, and the first month used for each vehicle.
  • Now you can enter your overpayment credits. Just type in the date the tax was overpaid, the VIN, the amount of the overpayment, and a short explanation for the IRS.
  • Then just review your information, and we’ll estimate the amount of your refund.

That’s it! It usually takes 4-6 weeks for the IRS to mail your refund check. You’re all set!

We here at ExpressTruckTax are always ready to help with any questions you may have about any aspect of using ExpressTruckTax. Our dedicated support team is located in Rock Hill, SC, and available via phone or web chat Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 704.234.6005.

Get Your HVUT Money Back: E-file Form 8849 Today

0
We’re back, Trucking Nation, with even more information on the what, when, why, and how of E-filing your Form 8849 for refunds.

Now that you know you can get a refund for being under the mileage limit, you may still have some more questions about your refund. And, that’s what we’re here for! So, let me break it down for you.
When should I make a claim & What types of credits can be claimed?

Form 8849 offers a variety of schedules that you can file for, but one of the most common is the Schedule 6. Under the 8849 Schedule 6, you can file for three different types of refund credits:
  • Stolen, Sold, or Destroyed Vehicle
  • Suspended Vehicle, or a vehicle that drove less than the mileage limit (5,000 for regular heavy vehicles and 7,500 for agricultural vehicles)
  • Overpayment on Form 2290
If you have experienced any of these situations during the tax year, then voila! You qualify for an HVUT refund!


What should I know before claiming a credit?


Before claiming a credit, you should know what does and does not qualify for a refund, as well as what information you will need in order to make a claim.

Listed in the previous section is a breakdown of the three credits you can claim and when you should make that claim. However, before you can do that, there is some information you need about your vehicle.

Before you make your claim, you should know:
  • Your company’s tax year month end
  • Your VIN
  • First-used month
  • Gross vehicle weight
Any relevant dates (if the vehicle was sold, stolen or destroyed you will need to know that date, and if you are claiming overpayment you will need to know the date of overpayment.)

Now that we’ve gotten all that out of the way, you may have questions about what doesn’t qualify for a refund. Well, you are not eligible for a refund when:
You sometimes operate at a lower gross vehicle weight than initially reported.

You used your vehicle for only part of the year. How often you’ve used the vehicle or how many months it was in use does not matter if you’ve exceeded the mileage limit.


Sold, Destroyed, and Stolen Vehicles

If your vehicle was sold, destroyed, or stolen during the tax year, you may be wondering just how to calculate refunds for that specific return. As always, here at ExpressTruckTax, we’ve got your back.

When you enter your information with us, we calculate the prorated tax for you! No muss, no fuss, no partial period tax tables! Just ExpressTruckTax doing what we do to make your life easier.


How do I handle overpaid 2290 taxes?

Since the credit claimed cannot exceed the tax reported on Form 2290, any excess credit must be claimed using Form 8849. So, if you’ve paid too much, you can get that money back!

And, when you use ExpressTruckTax to E-File your Form 2290, if your credit exceeds tax due, our program will automatically generate the Form 8849 for you! That means, there's no need to enter any additional information because we’ll do it for you!

If you need step-by-step instructions on how to E-File for either one of these claims, refer to our previous blog about Claiming Low Mileage Refunds.


How Will I Get My Refund?

Good question! Once the IRS receives your information, it can take 4-6 weeks for them to process your refund. Then, once everything is in order and squared away, the IRS will mail a check to your home address.

So, register with ExpressTruckTax today and on June 1 you’ll be ready to start E-filing for your refund! With 4-6 weeks to wait, there’s no time to waste. Not to mention, you only have until June 30th to E-file for your Form 8849. After that you’ll need to file a Form 2290 with a credit vehicle.

We hope we answered all of your questions, Trucking Nation! But, if you have more give our dedicated support team a call at 704.234.6005 or e-mail us at support@expresstrucktax.com for 24/7 support!

Who is eligible for a low-mileage refund? Let’s find out!


Who Qualifies for a Low Mileage Refund?


Trucks that traveled fewer than 5,000 miles on public highways during the tax year are eligible for a refund of their HVUT. Moreover, agricultural vehicles that traveled fewer than 7,500 miles on public highways during the tax year are eligible for a refund too.

  • Step 2: Enter the fiscal tax year month end for your business. This is typically in December unless the fiscal year of your business differs from the norm.
  • Step 3: If you have any trucks that were stolen, sold, or destroyed this past tax year, you should enter them first. You will need the VIN, gross vehicle weight, first-used month and the date the vehicle was sold, lost, or destroyed.
  • Step 4: Now, you can enter the VIN, gross vehicle weight and first-used month for any vehicles eligible for a low mileage credit.
  • Step 5: After that, if you’re eligible, you’re onto the overpayment credits. You can enter these by inputting the date of the overpayment tax, the VIN, amount you are claiming, and a short explanation for the IRS to review.

More Answers to Your Frequently Asked HVUT Questions!

0

It’s time for some much-needed Monday Morning brain stimulation!

Whether you’ve been scratching your head over the same HVUT questions, or you’re just looking to learn some random facts to freshen your Trivia Game prowess, then this blog is for you!


1. Is my HVUT renewal due the same time my vehicle registration renewal is due?


No. Although you need a current stamped Schedule 1 to renew your tags, they are not necessarily due at the same time.

Every year the HVUT renewal period opens July 1st and closes at the end of August. All renewals must be filed and taxes paid during this period, regardless of when your vehicle registration is due. If you wait to file your renewal until you need your tags, you will owe additional late fees on top of the heavy vehicle tax. When filling out your Form 2290 for your renewal, your first-used month is automatically July.


2. My taxable gross weight has increased. Do I need to file a new Form 2290?


No, but you may need to file a Form 2290 Amendment, which can also be easily E-filed through ExpressTruckTax.

If your gross vehicle weight has increased enough to bump you up into a higher weight category, then you can E-file a 2290 Amendment and only pay the difference. For a step-by-step guide to E-filing an Amendment for a Weight Increase, check out this blog.


3. My credits are greater than the tax due. How do I get this money back?


If the IRS owes you more than you owe them, then our system will automatically generate a completed Form 8849 for a refund. It’s just one more way we go the extra mile to try to make your life easier!


4. Can I pay my HVUT with a debit or credit card?


No, the IRS no longer accepts tax payments in the form of a debit or credit card. However, you may pay our E-filing fee with either.

The IRS only accepts payments from Direct Debit (Electronic Funds Withdrawal), EFTPS, or by Check or Money order. When paying by check or money order, be sure to attach a 2290-V payment voucher. If you E-file with us, we’ll automatically create a completed payment voucher for you! 


5. Where is your Support Team located, and how can I reach them?


Our Support Team is proudly located in the USA at our headquarters in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Not only are we USA-based, but we offer support in English and Spanish, all year long. We don’t just hire one or two people to provide seasonal tax support during the renewal period. Instead, we have a dedicated team that does nothing but provide HVUT support every day of the year.

We take great pride in being immersed in the transportation industry and talking to truckers, fleet owners, farmers, and CPA’s every day. We know this gives us an understanding of the industry that can’t be replicated, and it helps us to continue offering you the support experience of a lifetime.

You can reach us via phone Monday through Friday from 8am-6pm EST at 704.234.6005. You can also shoot us a message via live online chat, or email us at support@expresstrucktax.com for 24/7 emergency assistance.

Transferring Your 2290 to a New Vehicle

0

Do you need to transfer your 2290 in a hurry?

If you swapped vehicles or purchased a new one in December of 2015, then the answer is yes!

Vehicles first used in December have a 2290 filing deadline of January 31st!

Even though that’s no time at all, it’s still plenty of time to swap over your 2290. In fact, you could file a 2290 approximately three hundred and forty eight times between now and the Saturday deadline! (Yeah, I did the math.)

That’s because it only takes about 10 minutes to E-file a E-file a Form 2290. So if you’ve recently swapped vehicles, it’s time to get in gear and get yourself E-filed before the deadline.


Here’s the Game Plan:

1. E-file a new Form 2290
2. Claim a Credit Vehicle on that form
3. Receive your new Stamped Schedule 1 via email instantly



That’s all it takes to “transfer” your 2290 from your old vehicle to the new one. Want to see it step-by-step? I thought so, here’s the Play-by-Play.



Step 1: Login or create an account (it’s free!). If you’re new to ExpressTruckTax, quickly enter your name, business info, and EIN before you begin E-filing. Finally, click “Start New Return,” choose a Form 2290, and then enter your first-used month (the month in which you purchased the new vehicle).




Step 2: Now to enter your taxable vehicle information (for the new truck). Simply input the VIN, gross weight, and select whether the vehicle is used for logging. Save and then skip the next few screens until….




Step 3: It’s time to enter your Credit Vehicle. This is how you receive a prorated refund on the HVUT tax previously paid. Click +Add a Credit Vehicle, enter the VIN & gross weight, then enter details of the “loss event.” This means choosing the date on which the vehicle was sold, lost, or destroyed, as well as uploading any required evidence, like a bill of sale. 




And that’s it. Simply input your payment method, and then hit the big green Transmit button.
Within about 10 minutes, the IRS will have reviewed you return, and if it’s accepted (98% of returns E-filed with us are!), then you’ll receive your new stamped Schedule 1 via email immediately.

Bonus Tips: More Ways to Save

  • If your previous truck was sold, stolen, or destroyed, and you are choosing not to replace it, then you can still get a prorated refund of the HVUT you paid! The procedure is different from the “transfer” process. To claim a prorated refund in this case, simply E-file a Form 8849. We offer easy E-filing of this form too, check out these tips on how to file your 8849 fast. 
  • If your business name or EIN has changed, then you can also get a prorated refund for the taxes paid under the previous name/EIN. Just E-file a new Form 2290 for all vehicles under this new name or EIN. Then E-file a Form 8849 under the old name/EIN to get some of those tax bucks back. 

Here’s a lil’ chart to help you determine what you need to file:

Make the Switch: 10 Reasons to Ditch Paper Filing

0
It’s the dawn of a New Year, Trucking Nation! This new beginning is the perfect time to start fresh and commit to news ways of making 2015 the best year yet. 

How many resolutions did you make? Now ask yourself this: how many have you already broken? It’s easy to get discouraged when we trip up, but to keep yourself motivated, it’s important to set some goals that are easily attainable.

Here’s one improvement you can make, and it’s super easy too! Have you Made the Switch yet?

I mean, have you ditched dirty old paper filing and started E-filing your truck taxes? Whether you have one vehicle or hundreds to file for, ExpressTruckTax is hands down the fastest, most affordable way to E-file Form 2290 (or 2290 Amendments & Form 8849 for credits).

You’ll not only save time this year when you file, but every single year after that. In fact, the benefits of E-filing over paper filing are nearly endless. But to narrow it down, here are the Top 10 reasons to cut out paper filing and start E-filing, baby!

Top 10 Reasons to Make the Switch

  • 1. No lines: In fact, there’s no waiting. Period. Just instant gratification!

    Why wait in line at the IRS office when you can E-file from the comfort of your cab, in a coffee shop, or just about anywhere else you can get an internet connection?

    And don’t forget the time and gas you spend driving to the office. In fact, we have customers who since making the switch no longer have to set aside an entire day to drive hundreds of miles to the nearest IRS office! Score.
  • 2. More Secure: Far too often, you’ll see headlines about truckers being scammed on taxes, insurance, or any number of things.

    Luckily with ExpressTruckTax, you can E-file with confidence. As an IRS-certified E-file provider with several other industry-leading E-filing products on the market, you can rest assured that your information is safe. It travels from our encrypted site straight to the IRS servers. Don’t take my word for it–Just ask any one of the hundreds of thousands who’ve E-filed with us.
  • 3. Zero Calculations: Perhaps my favorite reason to E-file, no math required! As someone that avoids unnecessary math like the plague, I love that ExpressTruckTax does all of the calculations for me, no calculator needed!

    Not only does our program calculate the amount of HVUT due per vehicle, but it will also prorate reimbursements or tax owed for new vehicles acquired during the tax year. What’s the alternative? Breaking out a partial period tax table and figuring it out yourself?! PASS. I’ll stick with E-filing, thank you very much!
  • 4. Fewer Errors: It’s a fact. E-filed returns have fewer errors than paper-filed ones! It’s not just because we do the calculations for you, it’s also because we check your return with our Instant Audit before you submit it.

    If there’s an error, chances are our system will catch it for you. Maybe that’s why 98% of returns E-filed with us are accepted by the IRS instantly. Not to brag or anything.
  • 5. No Snail Mail: Not that we have anything against postal workers, it’s just that the Internet is faster. When you E-file, you’ll know in minutes whether or not your return was accepted by the IRS.

    Personally, I prefer that sense of security as opposed to sending my sensitive information out into the void, not to get a response for weeks. Which leads me to my next point, your return is accepted right away, which means you also...
  • 6. Receive Your Stamped Schedule 1 Immediately: Most users have their stamped Schedule 1 within 10 minutes of transmitting their returns. Even better, the second the IRS has stamped it, we’ll email you a copy.

    You can also elect to have us mail you a copy if you don’t have a printer, or you can even fax it to your carrier–or any other number of your choosing!
  • 7. Eco-Friendly: No driving, no postal mail, no paper! What could be more eco-friendly than that? The carbon footprint is nearly non-existent. Mother Earth will thank you.
  • 8. Free Support–All Day, Every Day: Maybe the best reason to E-file with us. You get free, 24/7, 365 access to our Support Heroes. When you have a question or crisis, you can count on them to be there to help.

    And unlike some companies that hire seasonal help, our support heroes are full-time support beasts! Offering truck tax support is all they do, all year. They know truck tax, they know the industry. Who else would you want answering your questions?
  • 9. Save Time Filing, Year After Year: If you only file truck taxes once a year, you may think saving time filing only once isn’t too big of a deal. But with ExpressTruckTax, you’ll save time every time you E-file. In fact, the more you E-file with us, the more time you save!

    Returning users have two ways of saving time. By using Truck Zone, you can quickly search for and add vehicles to your return without having to re-enter VIN, gross weight, etc. Or for the ultimate time-saving experience, you can copy a previous year’s return. This will auto-complete all fields, but still allow you to edit the return if any details have changed. Whichever method you choose, you can E-file in 5 minutes or less. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

  • 10. Organized & Accessible Tax Records: If the IRS comes knockin’, you won’t have to shake in your boots. With ExpressTruckTax, you have access to all returns and Schedule 1’s filed with us from the Dashboard of your account. You can view, download, or email this information whenever you need it. No worries about your tax information getting lost, destroyed, or crumpled up in a drawer. 
Still not convinced? A picture is worth a thousand words, so here’s a before and after of Sir Charles. E-filing suits him, as it does you.


For these reasons and many more, it’s time to Make the Switch. Start your New Year on the right foot, and resolve to do something better for you, for your business, and for the environment.

Ready to set up an account? The process is free and easy, just check out this step-by-step guide. Or call our Support Heroes, and they’ll walk you through it. Ring them at 704.234.6005, strike up a live online chat, or email them 24/7 at support@expresstrucktax.com.

~Happy New Year!~

Get Your Money Back! A Guide to Filing for Credit Vehicles & Claiming Refunds

0
You know that they say: New Year, New Truck! And if they don’t say it, they should start.

What could be better than kicking off the New Year with a shiny new ride! And with all of the end of year sales, I’m sure there are plenty of Truckers out there writing a list to Santa right now, asking for a beastly new 18 wheeler. (Boy, would that be difficult for Santa to get down the chimney and cram into your stocking! But hey, who are we to doubt Christmas Magic!)

Even without the help of Santa and his reindeer, it seems that plenty ExpressTruckTax users are already upgrading their rides! With 2015 on the horizon, our Support Heroes are getting lots of questions about transferring a Schedule 1 from a previously filed truck to a new one. They’re also getting questions about transitioning to a new business, new business name, or a different EIN, but with the same truck.

And then there’s always those who sell or lose their trucks, and decide to exit the transportation biz altogether. If you’re leaving the business mid-tax year, can you get part of your hard-earned HVUT money back?

We have a guide to help you with all of these scenarios! Whether you’re doing the trade-in shuffle or changing your business name or EIN, here’s how to get your Form 2290 sorted AND get some of your money back, too!


“Transferring” a Vehicle (AKA: Credit Vehicles)


  • If you purchased a new truck mid-tax year, and your previous truck was sold, stolen, or destroyed, then you can get a new stamped Schedule 1 without paying extra tax. Many refer to this as “transferring,” but that’s not exactly how it works with the IRS. 
  • Here’s why it’s not really a transfer per se. A Schedule 1 cannot be transferred from one vehicle to the next. However, you can effectively file your HVUT and get a new stamped Schedule 1, without paying any extra tax. 
  • And how, might you ask? You need to E-file a Form 2290 for the new vehicle and add a credit vehicle to that same return with the information of the previous vehicle. By adding a credit vehicle, you’ll receive a prorated tax credit for the remaining months of the tax year through July 1st. 
  • When E-filing a 2290 with a Credit Vehicle, the IRS will prorate the credit for the old vehicle based on the first used month of the new vehicle. The first used month is the month in which you purchased the new vehicle.
  • To save the most money, do the transfer at the end of the month. The IRS prorates the tax on a monthly basis, not daily. This means that If you buy the new vehicle at the beginning of the month, even on the very first day, the IRS will still apply tax for the entire month for the previous vehicle, as well as the new one.
  • The new Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the month following the month in which the “transfer” occurred. This means that if you switch vehicles today, November 18th, 2014, the new 2290 would need to be filed by December 31st, 2014. 
  • However, this transfer process (E-filing a 2290 with a credit vehicle) will only work if the business name and EIN remain the same. If they’re different, see the instructions below.




*Head over to Part 2 of this blog to see step-by-step instructions on E-filing your 2290 with a credit vehicle!*



Change of Business Name and/or EIN

  • If your truck remains the same, but your business name changes, you must file a new 2290 and get a new stamped Schedule 1 with the correct business name. 
  • Even if your business name only changes slightly, you must still file a new 2290. Typically, this occurs when a business becomes an LLC or corporation for example, in which case you must update your Name Control so that it matches your EIN in the IRS database, and then E-file a new Form 2290. 
  • Be sure to update your vehicle’s title to match as the DMV will not consider your Schedule 1 valid if it doesn’t match your title exactly.
  • If only your EIN changes, you must also file another Form 2290 to receive an updated Schedule 1.
  • In all of these instances, you can still get some of the tax money that you already paid back. After E-filing the 2290, file a Form 8849 under the previous business name/EIN to receive a prorated refund of the HVUT.

Sold, Lost, or Destroyed Vehicle- without a Replacement

  • If your vehicle was sold, stolen, or destroyed during the current tax year, and you aren’t replacing it with a new vehicle, you must E-file Form 8849 to receive a prorated refund of the HVUT paid.
  • While E-filing Form 8849 will only take 5 minutes with us, it will take the IRS 4-6 weeks to process the request and mail you a check for the refund.
  • Check out my previous blog for a step-by-step guide on E-filing Form 8849!
I know this is a lot to take in, so I made a nifty little infographic for you to see what you need to file at-a-glance–because I love you guys!

E-filing Form 8849: Refund for Excise Taxes

0
Alright, Trucking Nation. We talk a lot on this blog about paying taxes to the IRS.

Today, we’ll talk about the flipside– the IRS paying you!

That’s right, in some instances, you may claim a refund of your excise taxes by E-filing IRS Form 8849 with Schedule 6.


While this may sound like confusing mumbo-jumbo, ExpressTruckTax makes it super easy to E-file for a refund and get you your money back faster!

Before we talk about the how, let’s talk about the why. In what instances do you qualify for a refund of heavy vehicle use tax paid?

  • Your heavy vehicle was sold, stolen, or destroyed before June 1st (the end of the HVUT tax year). In any of these events, the tax will be prorated based on the date of the qualifying event. And it’s your lucky day because ExpressTruckTax does all the pro-rating math for you!
  • Your vehicle traveled too few miles during the tax year. If you traveled 5,000 miles or fewer on public highways during the tax year (7,500 if it’s an agricultural vehicle), then you qualify for a refund. This credit is not prorated; you simply receive a full refund of the taxes paid at the end of the tax year. (Yes, you have to wait until June 1st to E-file for this refund to prove that you did not hit the mileage limit after all.)
  • You overpaid your heavy vehicle use tax by either: filing for the incorrect number of trucks, selecting the wrong first-used month on your Form 2290, or you chose an incorrect, higher category weight for the vehicle. Pro-rated refunds are issued in all three of these cases. (Note: Refunds for lower gross vehicle weight will only be issued if the vehicle remains in that lower category for the entire tax year. There are no partial refunds for temporary reduced weight.)

However, refunds will not be issued for these cases:

  • You sometimes operate at a lower gross vehicle weight than initially reported. While occasional light or decreased loads might make you lose some weight (and save on gas mileage!), this does not warrant a refund of excise tax.
  • You used the vehicle for only part of the year. How often you used the vehicle or how many months it was in use do not matter if you exceeded the 5,000 mile limit (7,500 for agriculture). Refunds will only be issued if the vehicle drove less than the mileage limit during the tax year. 

If you fit into scenarios 1 through 3 above, then you may E-file your refund OR wait until next year and get a credit on your next Form 2290. The choice is yours! Either way, it’s always nice to get a little credit.

If you elect to E-file your Form 8849, here’s a quick how-to:


  • Once you’ve selected “Start a New Return,” choose start under “Form 8849 Schedule 6.” 
  • Then enter your tax year month end, which is typically December (unless the fiscal year for your business differs from the norm). 
  • First, upload any vehicles needing a sold/destroyed credit. You’ll need the VIN, first-used month, gross vehicle weight, and the date that the vehicle was sold, destroyed, or lost. Notice how the pro-rated tax is calculated for you, showing you a delightful sum of money the IRS owes you!
  • Second, enter the VIN, gross vehicle weight, and first-used month for any low mileage credit vehicles. 
  • Third, enter any overpayment credits by inputting the date of overpayment tax, VIN, the amount you are claiming back, and a short explanation for the IRS to review. 
  • Finally, review your information, and check out how much the IRS will be putting back in your pocket! 

Finally, sit back and wait for your pay day! The IRS typically issues the refund within 4-6 weeks. If they require additional information about your refund, they’ll notify you via postal mail, and you can fax them your reply.

And as always, if you need any assistance along the way, our Support Heroes are at the ready! Email them 24/7 at support@expresstrucktax.com. They’re also on live chat, or just a phone call away at 704.234.6005.

Enjoy that extra pay day! (And buy yourself just a little something special, you deserve it!)

Form 2290 Credit Vehicles

0

IRS Form 2290, Highway Heavy Vehicle Use Tax claiming credit for the following scenarios:
  • You can take credit for the vehicle if it was stolen, destroyed or sold before June 1 and not used during the remainder of the period, or
  • Used during the prior period 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles).

A credit, lower tax, exemption, or refund is not allowed for an occasional light or decreased load or a discontinued or changed use of the vehicle.  What that means is if you filed your Form 2290 at 80,000 lbs, but had occasions where you operated at a lower weight class, that will not qualify you for a credit.  If you used your vehicle for only a portion of the tax year, you will qualify for the credit IF you did not exceed 5,000 miles (7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles).  If you did travel more than 5,000 miles (7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles) then you will NOT qualify for the credit.

The credit for vehicles that were stolen, destroyed or sold during the tax year will be prorated based on the dates of the occurrence.  For vehicles sold, destroyed or stolen, you must include the VIN, taxable gross weight, and date of sale, accident or theft. The credit for the tax paid can be claimed on the next Form 2290 filed or the refund can be claimed on Form 8849.  You do not have to wait until the tax period ends.

The credit for low mileage vehicles you either qualify for it and you will get the full amount that you paid as a credit or you will not qualify and you will not get any portion of the credit.  This credit is never prorated. For vehicles that tax was paid and the vehicles were used 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles), the credit (or refund) cannot be claimed until the end of the tax period for which the initial tax was paid.  Even if you know at some point during the tax year that you will not exceed the 5,000 mile mark, you will not be able to claim the credit until the tax period ends, which is on June 30th.

The credit claimed cannot exceed the tax reported on Form 2290. If this occurs, any excess credit must be claimed using Form 8849, Claim for Refund of Excise Taxes, and Schedule 6, Other Claims. When you use ExpressTruckTax to E-File your Form 2290, if your credit exceeds the tax due, our program will automatically generate the Form 8849 for you.  No need to enter any additional information!

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!
