How to E-File IRS Form 2290(HVUT) and receive a stamped Schedule 1?

0

The Process of Filing IRS Form 2290 and getting a stamped Schedule 1 can be rather complicated. Especially now that the IRS has delayed the filing dates to November of 2011.

A Stamped Schedule 1 is required in order to register a vehicle. So it can be very stressful to wait until the last minute to register your vehicle because you are waiting for the IRS to send you a stamped schedule 1. (For vehicles that need to be registered during Jul-Oct of 2011, the state DMV’s are required to accept a Stamped Schedule 1 from the previous year since it is not possible to receive a stamped Schedule 1 until November 2011)

Although these are the traditional ways of getting a Stamped Schedule 1, an easier way has come about in the past few years. E-Filing has become more and more practical as well as more efficient. An IRS-Authorized provider of this service is www.ExpressTruckTax.com.  Instead of waiting for hours or up to 6 weeks for the IRS to stamp your schedule 1, Express Truck Tax will get your stamped Schedule 1 in minutes. When you log on to the site, you can enter the information for the Form 2290, and Express Truck Tax will then automatically create a Schedule 1 based on that information. That form will be sent to the IRS electronically, and they will then send the stamped Schedule 1 back to Express Truck Tax, who will then automatically send an email notification of the file to the taxpayer. This document can also be faxed as well as emailed to the taxpayer as soon as the IRS processes the form. There are even options to receive a notification via text message. The form will be transmitted with a watermark as well as an IRS E-File logo since the document will not be physically stamped.

EIN(Employer Identification Number) Update for Federal Tax Forms 2290 & 8849

If you are filing for either IRS Form 2290 or Form 8849, you will benefit from this new information regarding Heavy Vehicle Use Tax. The IRS will now be checking EIN (Employer Identification Number) verifications in a much more thorough way than they have in previous years. In the past, the IRS was more lenient on the EIN verifications.  As of now, the IRS requires that all EIN’s be at least two weeks old in order to file with them. Thus, if you have recently applied for an EIN over the past few days, it would be best to wait at least two weeks before filing your Form 2290 or 8849.

This information will be most useful for individual Owner-Operators, as well as Service Providers that file truck taxes for various Owner-Operators. If you need to apply for an EIN, you can contact the IRS via phone or online through the IRS website.

HVUT(U.S Federal Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290) Season Delayed by IRS

As you most likely know, the IRS has not yet disclosed the official Form 2290 for filing Truck Taxes.  This delay in the process has certainly caused some headaches for the service providers such as Express Truck Tax, who E-File this form on behalf of their clients.  Land Line, the business magazine for professional truckers, recently released an article about the delay.   In short, the Form 2290 will not be available until new legislation is passed, but drivers will be able to get their vehicle tags and register vehicles by using your previous year’s Schedule 1.

The following Article can be read in its entirety at LandLineMag.com:

Before you make a mad dash to the IRS office to file your Form 2290 Heavy Vehicle Use Tax, hold on. A week before filing season for the IRS Form 2290 was due to begin on July 1, the Internal Revenue Service announced a delay.

New legislation needs to be passed before IRS can collect the HVUT for the entire year. And right now that tax legislation is tied up in Congress. This means that your normal filing, which was for the tax period beginning July 1, 2011, won’t happen.

IRS will not accept any paper format or e-filing at this time. In fact, the form has not been published by the IRS and is not even available yet. An announcement on when it will be in place is expected to be made by IRS.

While the IRS e-file is not available for the tax period beginning July 1, 2011, you can still e-file your 2290 tax return for the tax period July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011.

The IRS may wait as long as possible so that a single tax return is all that will be necessary for the 2011-12 tax Year. However, a backup plan is in place so that a three-month tax (July, August and September) can be collected by the Aug. 31 filing deadline. When the new legislation is passed, it will determine what happens for the reminder of the 2011/12 tax year.

Can you get your tags and register your vehicle? The IRS says yes, you can get your tags for the tax period beginning July 1, 2011. Existing regs allow states to register a heavy highway vehicle when the application for registration is received during the months of July, August or September 2011. If you have your receipted Schedule 1 for the previous year’s taxable period – in this case July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011 – states can accept it as proof of payment.

States must register newly acquired heavy highway use vehicles without proof of tax payment if you present the original or photocopy of a bill of sale showing that the truck was purchased by the owner during the 60 days before the date the state receives the application for registration.
