How To File Form 2290 Amendments

0
Form 2290 Amendments made easy with ExpressTruckTax
You filed your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) Form 2290 this season right? Well, we hope so, because if you didn't the penalties could be building up pretty quickly. Anyways, if you did file, congratulations! You can do your happy dance until it’s time to file again next year, unless you need to update your form.

Even if you filed your 2290, you might not be finished with it, because if you need to file an amendment then you will need to go back update your form. Making an amendment isn’t something to fear or stress over with the help of ExpressTruckTax, which will help you quickly amend your Form 2290 so you can get back to the road.

Filing HVUT Form 2290 Amendments


Before we cover the how-to we will cover the amendment types. There are three different types of amendments that you can file with ExpressTruckTax.

1. VIN Corrections

Entering your VIN incorrectly is actually the number one mistake made on Form 2290 Since VIN or Vehicle Identification Numbers consist of 17 alphanumeric characters they can be a little easy to mix up. However, no sweat if you make a mistake because ExpressTruckTax offers free VIN corrections.

You can only make a VIN correction for taxable or suspended vehicles. You can’t file a VIN correction for credit vehicles or suspended vehicles for previous years. Also, to make a VIN correction you have to have already filed and paid for your original Form 2290. Otherwise, the IRS will penalize you.

2. Suspended Vehicles Exceeding The Mileage Limit

For your heavy vehicle to be considered suspended it needs to travel less than the mileage use limit, which is 5,000 miles (7,500 for agricultural vehicles) during the entire HVUT period. If your vehicle travels more than that amount regardless of the number of drivers, then it’s no longer considered to be a suspended vehicle and you will need to update your form 2290.

You will use page 2 of your form to calculate the amount of tax you owe for this vehicle based on it’s first used month during the period. However, don’t worry, ExpressTruckTax will automatically and accurately calculate that amount for you. Also, you will need to file this amendment by the last day of the month following the month that your vehicle exceeded the mileage limit.

3. An Increase in Taxable Gross Weight

If the taxable gross weight of your vehicle increases during the tax period and it falls into a higher category then you will have to file a Form 2290 amendment for it. For example, when an increase in the maximum load that you usually carry occurs, then your taxable gross weight increases.

You will need to calculate the tax based on the additional weight on line 3 of your form, but ExpressTruckTax makes it easy by automatically calculating the amount for you. Also, you need to file by the last day of the month following the month that your taxable gross weight increases.

How To File An Amendment

Handle All HVUT Form 2290 Needs With ExpressTruckTax

Filing an amendment with ExpressTruckTax is just as easy as filing your HVUT form 2290 with us! All you have to do is log back into your free ExpressTruckTax account and click the orange ‘Start New Return Button’.

Then a pop-up menu will appear and you will click ‘Form 2290 Amendments’ on the right. After that, you will click the type of amendment you need to file and follow the step-by-step guide that explains what information you need to enter and where! 

The guided steps will help you finish your amendment and transfer your it directly to the IRS. Then you will have a new copy of your stamped Schedule 1 sent to your email address within a matter of minutes.

Oops! It’s Time to File a VIN Correction

0
VIN Correction
File VIN Correction
We hear it all the time—you decided to get things done fast this year, so you e-file Form 2290 early. But once your stamped Schedule 1 comes in, you see that your VIN is way off. What can you do? Well, the easy answer is e-file a VIN correction!

Added Tax From Increase in Taxable Gross Weight


If your vehicle’s taxable gross weight increases during the period, and your vehicle falls in a new tax category, you need to file an amendment. We let you file for amendments with the same easy-to-use system you filed your 2290 with.

Suspended Vehicles Exceeding the Mileage use Limit


If a suspended vehicle exceeds the mileage use limit, they need to file form 2290 amendment. The mileage use limit for a heavy vehicle on public highways is 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles). The mileage use limit applies to the total mileage a vehicle is on the road during a period, regardless of the number of owners.

VIN Correction

If you made a mistake on a VIN when you filed Form 2290, you need to file a Form 2290 VIN correction. You can only file a VIN correction for taxable (or) suspended vehicles, and not for credit vehicles or for prior year suspended vehicles. The wrong VIN must have been paid for in the original form 2290, or the IRS will penalize you while still requiring the actual tax.

Don’t forget, we offer FREE 2290 VIN corrections for any filer who e-filed their 2290 return with us here at ExpressTruckTax!

If you didn't e-file your 2290 with us, but you still need to e-file a VIN correction, have no fear! You still have a chance, you just have to pay a small fee.



So when you need to e-file form 2290 VIN corrections, head over to ExpressTruckTax and we’ll make sure you’re taken care of.
