We’ve got you covered with everything you need to know to file IRS 2290 Form 2019 as fast as possible to avoid IRS penalties.

Let’s get started.

How To File 2290 Form 2019 Fast

Getting Started

Before you begin your 2290 filing, here’s some information you’ll want to collect to speed up the 2290 filing process.

- Your EIN (Employer Identification Number)

You must have an EIN to file. If you need an EIN, apply online with the IRS, or call TSNAmerica at (803) 386-0320.

- Your business name and business address
Enter business information at the beginning of the 2290 filing process.

- Your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)
This number should be 17 characters, including both numbers and letters.

- Authorized signatory details

Sign your IRS Form 2290 online with a unique 5-digit signature PIN.

- Your vehicle’s gross taxable weight

The weight of your vehicle when fully equipped for service, minus the weight of you and the load. Find this number on your cab card or a sticker inside the door of your cab. (The number on the door may be outdated, so use the cab card number if you have it.)

- Payment information

ExpressTruckTax offers multiple HVUT 2290 payment options, including credit card, direct debit, EFW (Electronic Funds Withdrawal), and EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System).

You can also mail the IRS your highway tax 2290 payment via check or money order.

However, if an IRS 2290 mistake is made, the IRS will reject your form, forcing you to re-file.

To avoid this, ExpressTruckTax will run an instant error check on your highway tax 2290 before filing.

Also, if you’ve filed with us before, your information will be saved, further reducing the chance of error.

If you do end up making a mistake, ExpressTruckTax offers free VIN corrections and IRS 2290 amendments.

How to Transfer Your 2290 to a New Truck?

0
Owner-Operator truck driver looking at buy a new vehicle and he will need to transfer his 2290 to his new truckWe have come across this particular question from our owner-operators and self-employed drivers on almost a daily basis. So here we will go in-depth on how to transfer your 2290 to a new truck.

How to Transfer Your 2290 to a New Truck?

When you replace your old vehicle, you will use Form 2290 to adjust the credits. You will report your new vehicle for a pro-rated tax period based on when you first used the vehicle. If you need to file a Form 2290 refund claim, you will use Form 8849 Schedule 6. This is to request a refund from the IRS. The IRS will mail you a refund check within 4 to 6 weeks once your claim is accepted.

2290 Tax Transfer Instructions:

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

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). Input the VIN, gross weight, and select whether this is a logging vehicle.

Step 3:


Owner-Operator driving his new truck after transferring his 2290 from his old truck
Enter Credit Vehicle details. Click "+ Add a Credit Vehicle," enter the VIN & gross weight, then enter details of the “loss event.” Enter the date on which the vehicle was sold, lost, or destroyed. You will also upload any required evidence, like a bill of sale, or police statement.

Input your payment method, and then hit 'transmit.'

The IRS will have reviewed your return, and if accepted you will receive your new stamped Schedule 1 via email.


Bonus Round: 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 tax you paid! The procedure is different from the “transfer” process. To claim a prorated refund, you will need to e-file a Form 8849.


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. 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 receive your HUVT tax refund.
