Hidden Benefits of E-filing Federal Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290


While there are many obvious benefits to electronically file the IRS Form 2290 with, there are also several that you may not initially recognize. The more obvious benefits to filing Truck Taxes with Express Truck Tax include a quicker filing process, more affordable pricing than other E-File providers, and a customer support team that can walk you through the process. But what you may not also realize is that it is also beneficial to the environment due to the lack of wasted paper; it also cuts down on our government’s spending because electronic returns are much easier for the IRS to process.

Not only does our excessive use of paper deplete our planet’s precious supply of natural resources, the harsh chemicals used to process, bleach, and create the paper that we use everyday is also causing damage. A simple way to help cut down on our heavy use of paper in our offices and homes is to utilize electronic forms when possible. It is also more secure to file documents electronically. With electronic transfers, your private information is sent directly to the person who should be receiving it, and there is no risk of getting lost in the mail or being sent to the wrong person.

Another benefit of E-filing tax returns with the IRS that may not be so obvious is that it costs much less for the IRS to process a return that has been E-Filed. With this country’s rising debt crisis, this is a small step that you can take to help reduce government redundancies, and keep the cost of running this government low.  

If these reasons alone are not enough to convince you to E-File, then feel free to call us at (704)234-6005. Our dedicated team of customer support professionals would love to talk to you in more detail about the filing process for IRS Form 2290, 8849, HVUT, and more.

Form 2290 will not be mailed by Internal Revenue Service this year

The Internal Revenue Service recently announced that they will not be mailing the Form 2290 for filing Heavy Vehicle Use Tax to taxpayers this year. This step was taken due to the increase in electronic filing (E-Filing). This is also the way the IRS encourages more drivers and trucking companies to file electronically. They are pushing them out of the nest (so to speak) of paper filing, so that they can learn how to E-File (and fly).  The IRS does have legitimate reason to do this because filing electronically really is the quickest, easiest, and safest way to file.  It also costs the IRS less money to process electronic returns, which means that our government can be more efficient.

Fortunately, it has recently become incredibly simple to E-File IRS Form 2290 or other tax forms related to the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) such as Form 8849. All you need to do is go to and start filing. You can file a Schedule 1 for Form 2290, Form
8849, A VIN Correction, and Fuel Tax (IFTA).  

This easy-to-use system allows the taxpayer to go through the process at their own speed and it asks questions in plain English, not confusing tax jargon. There are even special discounts for Owner-Operators who need to file for multiple vehicles. Tax Professionals may also benefit from special pricing for multiple filings.  

Even if you still need help filing your Truck Taxes, Express Truck Tax has an excellent team of customer service professionals who will help you file your return quickly and painlessly..
