Did You Get a Letter From the IRS About HVUT 2290?

0
Truck driver receiving a letter from the IRS regarding his HVUT 2290 tax, stating that he didn't pay 2290.
You thought you were done with the 2290 tax… until you received a letter from the IRS about non-payment.

If you filed sometime close to the 2290 tax due date, you might’ve received a notice from the IRS asking you to pay 2290.

If you already filed your heavy use tax form online and paid your 2290 tax, this can be frustrating and confusing. Don’t sweat it just yet.

Here’s what it means.

IRS Letter Regarding HVUT 2290

Why did I receive a letter?

This happens every year. It could mean you still need to pay 2290 tax, or, it could just be a side-effect of the high volume of returns that the IRS receives close to the Form 2290 due date.

Sometimes, IRS systems don’t communicate information very efficiently, especially when they’re overloaded with last-minute HVUT 2290 filers.

What Should I Do?

Most likely, the IRS will send you a follow-up letter in a few weeks telling you that the first letter was an error, but, before assuming, double check that your 2290 tax amount was paid in full.

First, check to see how you chose to pay your heavy use tax to the IRS. Did you pay 2290 with credit card, debit card, EFW, EFTPS, check, or money order?

If you chose EFW, or Electronic Funds Withdrawal, check you bank statement to ensure that the funds were successfully drafted from your account.

If they were, you’re all set! You paid HVUT 2290 tax successfully. However, if the amount hasn’t been removed, contact us. There may have been an error entering your account information.

Secondly, if you filed with ExpressTruckTax and chose to pay 2290 with credit or debit card, make sure you made that payment separately. This payment would’ve been made outside of ExpressTruckTax through Official Payments after you completed your filing. 

If you forgot to pay your 2290 tax through Official Payments, do so as quickly as possible.

Still Have Questions?

We’re here to help! If you have questions or concerns regarding your 2290 tax, contact our US-based team of experts here at ExpressTruckTax in Rock Hill, SC.
Truck drivers that filed HVUT 2290 close to the Form 2290 due date may have recieved an IRS letter of heavy use tax non-payment.
Simply call 704-234-6005 or email support@expresstrucktax.com.

If you still need to file HVUT 2290, click here. The Form 2290 due date was September 3, 2019, so you’ll want to file ASAP to avoid increased penalties.



Be sure to file even if you can’t make the full 2290 tax payment, as penalties will be reduced.

Almost out of Time! Avoid Penalties, File IRS 2290 Now

0
Truckers speed into IRS 2290 filing, hurrying to file their 2290 highway use tax before the HVUT 2290 deadline.
The IRS 2290 filing deadline is coming up on September 3rd, 2019.

If you’re thinking of putting off filing IRS 2290 or waiting to pay your heavy vehicle use tax, I’m here to prepare you for the IRS penalties you can expect.

Plus, we’ll go over how exactly to avoid those penalties while saving money and time.

Let’s get started. 

Everything You Need For IRS 2290 Filing

IRS Form 2290 Filing Deadline

As mentioned, the 2290 deadline is September 3rd, 2019.

This is the deadline to file IRS Form 2290 and pay your 2290 tax amount.

Failing to file and pay heavy vehicle use tax will result in penalties from the IRS. The penalty for failing to file IRS Form 2290 on time is 4.5% of the total highway tax 2290 amount you owe, with additional 0.54% interest each month.

However, the penalty for filing your IRS Form 2290 but failing to pay your highway tax 2290 amount is 0.5% of the HVUT payment, substantially less than failing to file.

The interest is the same.

If you can’t afford to make your HVUT payment right this moment, file IRS Form 2290 anyway. 

There’s no reason to miss the deadline. The whole process takes a matter of minutes and can be done from your phone.

IRS 2290 Filing Tips

Save time by gathering information before you dive in. Here’s what you need for IRS Form 2290 filing:

-  EIN

You must have an EIN to file IRS 2290. If you need one, you can try to get one from the IRS in time, but we suggest calling TSNAmerica at 803.386.0320.

-  Business Information

You’ll need to enter your business name and address at the beginning of your IRS Form 2290.

-  VIN

This is your Vehicle Identification Number, and should be 17 characters long.

-  Authorized Signatory Details

This is the 5-digit unique signature PIN you’ll need to use to sign your IRS Form 2290.

-  Gross Taxable Weight

Your vehicle’s gross taxable weight is its weight when fully equipped for service, minus the weight of you and the load. You can find this on your cab card or sticker inside the door.

-  HVUT Payment Information

Pay your HVUT 2290 tax amount online fast. Leading IRS-authorized e-file providers like ExpressTruckTax will offer multiple payment options, including credit card, direct debit, EFW (Electronic Funds Transfer), and EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System).

Once you’re ready, choose an IRS-authorized online filing system. Filing IRS 2290 highway use tax online will save you loads of time and ensure that you receive your 2290 Schedule 1 fast

The Quickest Way to File

Things You Need To Know: HVUT, Highway Tax 2290, and IFTA Tax

0
Truck tax deadlines are approaching and truckers must stay on top of HVUT, Form 2290, and IFTA tax filing.
With every deadline comes more confusion.

You might think, “What are all these forms and payments, and why am I constantly dealing with them?”

Understanding HVUT, highway tax 2290, and IFTA tax will prepare you to file quickly each year and keep you from making filing mistakes.

Knowing the differences will also give you an idea of if you need to file, and when to file.

HVUT

HVUT, or Heavy Vehicle Use Tax, is a tax on heavy vehicles used to fund highway maintenance.

You must pay Heavy Highway Use Tax if your truck has a gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more and is driven on public highways over 5,000 miles per year. Gross weight is weight when fully equipped for service.

Heavy Highway Use Tax is an annual tax. The HVUT deadline is the same as the 2290 highway use tax form deadline. HVUT is also known as HVUT 2290 because of its connection with Form 2290, which we’ll talk about next.

Highway Tax 2290

Highway Tax 2290, or simply Form 2290, is the form used to pay your HVUT amount.

Form 2290 is also used to calculate the Heavy Highway Use Tax amount you owe, determine your truck’s category, claim an exemption or credit, and more.

Highway Tax 2290 proves why the HVUT 2290 amount you’re paying is what you’re paying.

You need an EIN to file 2290 Highway Use Tax Form. The deadline is the same as the HVUT 2290 deadline. File Highway Tax 2290 Form and pay HVUT 2290 by the end of the month after your first use month.

IFTA Tax

The IFTA tax is not related to HVUT 2290 and Highway Tax 2290 Form. IFTA, or International Fuel Tax Agreement, ensures that each state/province is paid the correct IFTA fuel tax.

IFTA fuel tax becomes important when vehicles travel frequently across state borders. If trucks fill up in one state and immediately cross to the next, the state they’re driving in is losing out.

With IFTA reporting, truckers track miles in each state.

You need to pay IFTA fuel tax quarterly if your vehicle has 2 axles and a gross vehicle weight or registered gross weight > 26,000 pounds, has a combined weight of 26,000 pounds or has 3 or more axles regardless of weight.

Here are the deadlines:


Quarter Periods
IFTA Quarterly Tax Return Period
Due Dates
1st Quarter
January - March
April 30 
2nd Quarter
April - June
July 31
3rd Quarter
July - September
October 31
4th Quarter
October - December
January 31


How To Keep Up With Truck Taxes

The best way to pay these taxes is online. Cutting out paperwork saves time, and filing online allows you to keep a record of your previous filings.

Using a service that offers all of these forms in the same place is ideal.

IRS Form 2290 deadline is approaching. Truckers look to online providers to file IRS Highway Tax 2290 fast.With ExpressTruckTax, you can do it all. IFTA reporting, highway tax 2290, and HVUT are all in one place for your convenience.

Trucker Lifestyle: How To Travel With a Pet

0

Trucking dog at home in his truck drivers seat.
Not all companies allow pets, but luckily, some allow truckers bring their furry friends.

Much like an apartment complex, these trucking companies often require a pet deposit, which can range anywhere from $100-$500. Their policies may also restrict the weight of your pet.

No matter how tempted you are to take your pup on the road, don’t ever just assume that your trucking company or customers are okay with it.

Make sure you know a site’s policy before you arrive.

Military bases, electric plants, and anywhere with hazardous materials and high security will NOT allow you to bring a pet on site.

Truck drivers who bring pets along say they enjoy having company on the road. Sometimes it’s nice to have someone to keep up with trucking news and listen to trucker radio shows with.

Considering adding a pet to your trucker lifestyle? Here are some things to consider, and a list of the best dogs for truckers.

Introducing a Pet to the Trucker Lifestyle

Benefits of Traveling with a Pet

Most truck drivers who bring their pets will tell you that the benefits of trucking with a pet greatly outweigh the disadvantages.

Pets can help truck drivers combat loneliness and overcome negative aspects of the trucking lifestyle.

For instance, bringing a dog forces truck drivers to get out and go for walks, helping maintain wellness on the road and increasing energy and attention while driving.

Dogs may also motivate you to take more breaks, which is especially important for summer trucking.

Plus, animals are more alert to certain situations, and offer a level of protection on the road.

How to Travel with a Pet

If you choose to bring a pet, keep current shot/medical records with you in case of an inspection.

Also, consider bringing baby wipes to clean your pet and eliminate smell when you aren’t able to give your pet a bath.

Pack puppy pads for emergencies, pet food, and treats.

Most truckers who bring pets trucking have dogs. The best dogs for truckers are older dogs because they are calmer and able to stay still for longer periods of time. Puppies have too much energy and need to be let out much more often.

If you’re looking for an older dog companion, check out your local Humane Society or animal shelter.

In terms of breed, some of the best dogs for truckers include:

1. Toy Breeds

Chihuahuas are some of the best dogs for truckers because they're small.

Toy breeds, like chihuahuas, require little grooming. Plus, they’re so small that truck stops and motels probably won’t care if they’re around.

2. Bulldogs

Bulldog lounges in owner's arms, enjoying the trucking lifestyle.

Bulldogs don’t shed much and are also low maintenance. They don’t require much exercise and like to lounge around all day.

3. Pitbulls

Pitbull, named one of the best dogs for truckers, smiles at truck driver.

Pitbulls are great companions. They’re considered one of the best dogs for truckers because they can offer safety and protection. They’re pretty active though, so you’ll have to get outside with them a couple times a day. 


Keeping up with Policy

Again, it’s important to know the rules, stay updated with the latest trucking news regarding pets, and understand that each company is different.

While we’re on the topic of staying compliant with trucking policies, let’s talk about staying compliant with the IRS.

Your IRS 2290 is due September 3rd!
While IRS 2290 is typically due August 31, that date falls on a Saturday this year. Therefore, Form 2290 for 2019 is due September 3rd. 
That means you’ve got a few extra days to submit IRS 2290 and make your HVUT 2290 payment.

There’s no need to stress. ExpressTruckTax will lead you through the filing process quickly, check for errors, and transmit your IRS 2290 securely.

We’ll also send you your 2290 Schedule 1 just minutes after you file. Plus, use the ExpressTruckTax mobile app to file Form 2290 for 2019 and pay HVUT 2290 on the go.

Don’t procrastinate! Pay your HVUT 2290 and file Form 2290 for 2019 NOW to avoid penalties from the IRS.

This is Why IRS 2290 Online Filing is the Ultimate Tax Experience

0
Truckers hurry to take advantage of 2290 online filing to submit their IRS Form 2290 before the Form 2290 due date.
Today, IRS Form 2290 filing isn’t half bad. Filers can log in to a website, enter some information, and file with the click of a button.

Before 2290 online filing was an option, all forms were filled out by hand and mailed or brought in to the IRS office.

This method led to long IRS lines, frustrated filers, and severe wait time between submitting IRS 2290 and finding out if it was accepted or rejected.

Not to mention the delay in receiving a copy of your 2290 Schedule 1.

Times have changed for the better. Here’s everything you need to know about filing Form 2290 online. 



The World of IRS 2290 Online Filing

Highway Tax 2290

As you might know, IRS Form 2290 is used to pay HVUT 2290, an annual tax collected from those who operate heavy vehicles on public highways in order to maintain those highways.

It’s important to file Form 2290 for 2019 before the September 3rd Form 2290 due date to avoid IRS penalties.

Filing your highway tax 2290 online with the right provider takes just minutes, and you’ll receive your stamped Schedule 1 shortly after filing.

When asked how he got started as a truck driver, he says, “My father was one, he taught me how.” Cagle grew up into the trucker lifestyle and it became everything he knows and loves.

This Is What Actually Happens If You Don't File IRS 2290

0
Truckers file IRS 2290 before the 2290 deadline to avoid penalties.
The IRS Form 2290 deadline is creeping up.

Don’t end up blindsided. Filing IRS 2290 for 2019 by the 2290 deadline is critical, not only to stay compliant, but also to remain in operation and avoid fines.

Still not convinced? Don’t wait around until the end of August to find out for yourself, we’ll tell you what will happen right now.

Here’s a rundown of what exactly what happens when you miss 2290 deadline:

What Happens If You Forget About IRS 2290?

IRS 2290 Deadline

Normally, the annual IRS 2290 deadline is August 31st, but this year that date falls on a Saturday. 

Therefore, the 2290 due date is technically September 3rd.

We’re off to a good start. You’ve got a couple more days to file than normal.
But you’re busy. What if you still can’t find the time or motivation?

IRS 2290 Penalties

Here’s some motivation:

If you miss the 2290 deadline, you’ll face penalties. Let’s say you simply forget to file.

First, you’ll need to pay the IRS 2290 late filing penalty, which is 4.5% of the total HVUT 2290 tax amount you owe.

Then, you’ll face an additional .54% of interest each month that passes without you filing.

On top of that, you’ll still have to pay the original HVUT 2290 amount you owe whenever you do file.

If the reason for late filing was an error on your original IRS 2290 return, you may be able to avoid penalties altogether.

You can attach an explanation to your corrected 2290 for 2019 filing, showing reasonable cause for the delay. Even this, however, does not guarantee that the IRS will accept your statement and save you from the penalty. 

Avoiding Form 2290 Penalties

There’s an easy fix for avoiding IRS Form 2290 penalties:

File HVUT 2290 before the 2290 due date!

Failing to file HVUT 2290 for 2019 before the 2290 due date can lead to heavy penalties.

The Form 2290 deadline is usually August 31, but since that falls on a weekend this year, it is September 3rd. 

You really have no excuse not to file on time. Especially with ExpressTruckTax as an option.

ExpressTruckTax allows you to file IRS 2290 for 2019 online quickly and easily. 

Plus, you’ll get your Schedule 1 just minutes after you’ve submitted your return.

It doesn’t take long, and you can file from anywhere. Knock it out today and forget about the 2290 due date until next year.

The Most Important Remix of Old Town Road Has Arrived

0

How many times do you think Lil Nas X can remix “Old Town Road?” We hope it’s a lot.

Rather than waiting for an unlikely HVUT 2290 remix, we took matters into our own hands.

Ladies and gents, boys and girls, grab your cowboy hats and saddle up because we’re about to take a trip to Old Town Rock Hill.


The Most Important Remix of Old Town Road Has Arrived



Why “Old Town Road?” & Other Fun Facts

It’s no secret - the Form 2290 for 2019 deadline is approaching.

You must file Form 2290 for 2019 to stay compliant with heavy highway tax 2290 and receive your Schedule 1.
We have the perfect HVUT 2290 solution, but how can we spread the word?

One day, the sales team upstairs was helping 2290 Form 2019 filers complete their HVUT 2290 heavy highway tax 2290 when they noticed they were hearing the same song over and over.

It was May, and “Old Town Road” was blowing up the radio, quickly becoming one of the biggest hits in the nation.

We were constantly reminded of the tune, both hearing it in the office and seeing the unique flags lining the streets outside, welcoming us every day to Old Town Rock Hill.

It was Amber, the Director of Transportation Products, who connected the dots with a plan.

“We see those flags every day when we come into the office to help people file taxes. I realized we’d been given a unique opportunity to relate to our customers.”
Transforming 2290 Form 2019 from a headache to a simple process is our overarching mission.

Creating a remix of “Old Town Road” would help us convey that taxes don’t have to be boring.

“I picked up the idea and ran,” says Caitlyn, our Digital Marketing Content Creator.
Thus began a team effort to create a remix of “Old Town Road” dedicated to reminding you to hammer down and file your taxes.


Behind the Scenes of Our Old Town Road Remix

From the start, we knew this HVUT 2290 Form 2019 remix of “Old Town Road” would rely on collaboration.

Our Marketing Team created lyrics for the remix and Taylor, our Content Marketing Specialist, contacted her cousin, the owner of Rich Game Stables in Matthews, NC.

It was all hands on deck. Cardboard trucks were built and painted. Paint was spilled and shoes were destroyed. That’s how it goes in showbiz. 🤷

We definitely faced our challenges. Mixing the music to produce the remix of “Old Town Road” was beyond our technical skills, but we persevered for the sake of 2290 Form 2019 filing.

Even our handmade trucks survived South Carolina heat just long enough for footage before its glue melted and they collapsed.

The Most Common IRS Form 2290 Mistakes to Avoid

0
Driver finding mistakes on his filed IRS Form 2290
There’s nothing worse than having to file your annual truck taxes twice. 😐

Avoid IRS Form 2290 mistakes this season when you e-file 2290 with ExpressTruckTax.

We’ve got a few tips to make the process as painless as possible and save you from any unnecessary corrections.

Filing IRS Form 2290 before the deadline will save you tons of money, but mistakes could keep you from meeting the Form 2290 for 2019 due date and cost you a sweet penny.

Avoid frustration and confusion by double checking some information that commonly delays IRS Form 2290 approval.

The Most Common IRS Form 2290 Mistakes to Avoid

5 Common IRS Form 2290 Mistakes

 Here are some things to be extra cautious about when filing your 2290 Form.

Common IRS Form 2290 Mistakes















How to Check These Areas For Error


  • 1) EIN (Employer Identification Number) or VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)

A unique EIN is assigned to each company operating in the US as a form of identification for tax purposes. Your EIN should be a string of 9 numbers, presented in this format: 12-3456789.

Since this number looks similar to a social security number, filers often confuse the two, causing the IRS to reject the 2290 Tax Form.

Keep in mind that it takes 10 business days for the IRS to update its database with a new EIN. If you’re applying for a new EIN, do so at least a month before you e-file IRS 2290 to avoid delays.

Your VIN should be 17 characters long and include both numbers and letters. Check your VIN before submitting your 2290 Tax Form. If incorrect, your IRS Form 2290 will be rejected.

The best online tax filing is quick. Don’t waste unnecessary time with mistakes. When you e-file 2290, double check your Form 2290 for 2019 and ensure that your EIN and VIN are correct.

  • 2) First Used Month or Filing Year

When filing IRS Form 2290, make sure you use the correct filing year.

Note: If you’ve used an online filing service before, the drop-down menu could be set to a previous 2290 Tax Form file year. Double check!

Secondly, choose an accurate first used month.

The first used month is the month you first used the truck on the highway during the tax period, which runs from July 1 to June 30 of the next year. Your Truck Tax form is due on the last day of the month after your first used month.

This means if you first used your vehicle in July, as most drivers do during the tax season, then you will need to file your IRS 2290 Tax Form by August 31.

  • 3) Gross Taxable Weight

IRS Form 2290 tax calculations can be tricky, but don’t sweat it. At ExpressTruckTax, our system automatically calculates your owed tax amount. Leave all 2290 tax form math to us.

It’s important to find the best online tax filing service to save yourself time and money. ExpressTruckTax can help!

  • 4) Authorized Signatory Details

It's super easy to sign your IRS 2290 online. All you need is a 5-digit authorized signature code. Still, no matter how simple it sounds, please just… double check. 😬

  • 5) Business Name & Address

You'd be surprised at how many returns are rejected for this information being incorrect!

The wrong business name and address is one most common errors on the heavy vehicle use tax form 2290. Don’t let it happen to you!

Double check your business name and address before submitting your IRS Form 2290.

Why is it so Important to Avoid IRS 2290 Mistakes?

Even the simplest mistake on your IRS Form 2290 can cause serious problems. For starters, your 2290 Tax Form will definitely be rejected by the IRS.

This is a huge time waster and may cause you to miss the HVUT 2290 Tax Form Deadline.

If this happens and you miss the deadline, you’ll need to correct your Form 2290 and file again, attaching an explanation to show reasonable cause for the delay of your heavy vehicle use tax.

There’s no guaranteeing that your statement will be accepted by the IRS, and if it’s not, you’ll face heavy IRS 2290 Tax Form penalties.

The penalty for failing to file IRS Form 2290 by August 31st is 4.5% of the total tax amount owed. Plus, you still have to pay the base HVUT 2290 amount you owe.
In addition, this penalty will increase monthly for up to 5 months, with an additional .54% interest added for each month that it remains unpaid.

Save yourself while you can and double check your Form 2290 before you e-file 2290 online.
