Truck drivers who missed the IRS Tax Form 2290 hurry to file IRS 2290 to avoid further penalties.
So, you forgot to file IRS 2290 before September 3rd, 2019.

You’ll want to file IRS Form 2290 now to avoid further penalties.

Luckily, you’ve come to the right place.

We’ll talk about what exactly happens when you miss the IRS Form 2290 deadline, and how to rectify the situation by filing IRS 2290 online.

Here are the IRS 2290 instructions for filing after the IRS 2290 deadline.

Filing IRS Form 2290 After The Deadline

IRS 2290 Penalties

If you still need to file your IRS Tax Form 2290, your penalty is 4.5% of your total HVUT 2290 amount, plus additional interest of 0.54% each month for up to 5 months.

If you already filed HVUT Form 2290 but have not paid your HVUT 2290 tax amount, your penalty is only 0.5% per month, plus the same interest of 0.54%.

You may be able to avoid these penalties if you attach an explanation of the reasonable cause for late filing to your HVUT Form 2290.

However, don’t count on it. File IRS Form 2290 ASAP to avoid further penalty, don’t just assume that your explanation will be accepted and take your time filing.

2290 Proof of Payment

You’ll also need to file HVUT Form 2290 quickly in order to stay compliant on the roads.

After you’ve filed IRS Form 2290, you’ll receive a 2290 proof of payment, which is essentially a receipt for your 2290 highway use tax.

You must take this document on the road with you for legal operation. Your 2290 proof of payment is also required for things like tag renewals, international travel, and more.

The sooner you file IRS Tax Form 2290 online, the sooner you’ll receive your 2290 proof of payment.

Why You Need to File Form 2290 for 2019 TODAY

0
Truckers are approaching the Form 2290 for 2019 deadline.
The Form 2290 due date is getting close!

By now, there’s tons of content floating around about Form 2290 for 2019…

There are plenty of different providers offering promo codes for filling, and various articles containing IRS 2290 instructions.

So, what’s the truth? We’ve got you covered with everything you need to know about Form 2290 2019 to file successfully, avoid IRS penalties, and keep the money in your pocket.

The 101 On Form 2290 2019

What’s the Deal With the Form 2290 Due Date?

If you’ve been in the industry for a while, you’re probably used to the August 31st Form 2290 due date, but there’s another date being tossed around this year.

Because August 31, 2019 is a Saturday, and the following business day is Labor Day, the IRS will officially accept 2290 Form 2019 up until September 3, 2019.

Unfortunately, that extension doesn’t change the fact that the IRS and the postal office will be closed Monday, September 2nd.

Therefore, it is critical that you file your Form 2290 2019 TODAY.

Seriously, don’t put it off. Which brings me to… IRS penalties.

If you file after September, 3rd (which I hope you don’t), you’ll face a penalty of 4.5% of your Form 2290 2019 tax amount, with additional interest of 0.54% per month.

If you filed your Form 2290 for 2019 but did not pay your tax amount by the deadline, that penalty will be 0.5% of your total Form 2290 2019 tax amount, plus 0.54% interest per month.

You may avoid penalties if you include a reasonable explanation for filing IRS Form 2290 for 2019 after the 2290 due date, but don’t count on it.

What IRS 2290 Instructions do I Need to Start?

Filing is simple, but before you start, gather all the information you’ll need to file 2290 Form 2019. It’ll speed up your process.

Here’s how to know if you need to file:

You’ll need to file if your vehicle has a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more and is driven on public highways.

You can claim an exemption or suspension for your vehicle if it:

-  Was used 5,000 highway miles or less during the tax period
-  Is an agricultural vehicle and was used 7,500 miles or less during the tax period
-  Was stolen or destroyed during the tax period
-  Was sold during the tax period

Here’s what you need to file:

-  Your EIN (Employer Identification Number) –– NOT your Social Security Number
-  Your business name and its address
-  The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). Hint: it’ll be 17 characters.
-  Authorized Signatory Details
-  Vehicle’s Gross Taxable Weight (how much it weighs when fully equipped for service, minus the weight of you and any loads).

Next, we’ll talk about how to file.

What’s the Fastest Way to File?

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

0

While there are many obvious benefits to electronically file the IRS Form 2290 with ExpressTruckTax.com, 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. You could also send an email with any questions to support@expresstrucktax.com.

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.

IRS Payment Information for Heavy Vehicle Use Taxes(Federal Form 2290)

0

For those taxpayers who must file Form 2290 for Heavy Vehicle Use Taxes, they can choose to file electronically, via postal mail, or at the nearest IRS office. Although there are several ways to file a Form 2290, the quickest, easiest, and safest way to file it is through an authorized E-File Provider such as ExpressTruckTax.com. When filing through an IRS authorized E-File provider, there are several different payment options. Taxpayers can choose to pay the tax through Electronic Funds Withdrawal, EFTPS, Check, or Money Order. Even though the options to pay by check or money order may be more familiar payment methods and are more easily understood, the options of Electronic Funds Withdrawal and EFTPS may need an additional explanation.

In order to pay by Electronic Funds Withdrawal, you can use either a checking or savings account. You will be required to enter the US Bank Account Number and Routing Number in order for the IRS to Process the payment. This information is typically listed on a check. Once the information is transferred, your payment will be taken from your bank account electronically.

EFTPS stands for Electronic Federal Tax Payment System. EFTPS is a government program that allows taxpayers to schedule Federal Tax Payments electronically. If you select to pay by this option, you are acknowledging that it is your responsibility to send the tax payment to the IRS through the EFTPS.gov website. The E-Filing Program will not send your information to EFTPS.gov, that must be completed by the person filing.

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.
