So, What's the Deal with the IRS 2290 Deadline?

0
Truckers must file IRS 2290 by the 2290 filing deadline to avoid IRS penalties.
If you’re reading this article, you probably know that you need to file your IRS 2290 soon.

But did you know that the 2290 filing deadline is September 3rd, 2019, not the usual August 31st?

Maybe you’re wondering why the 2290 deadline is different.

Or perhaps you have some confusion surrounding filing IRS Form 2290 and paying your actual IRS 2290 payment.

Better yet, you might be thinking about how much of a hassle this is, and wondering why it’s necessary in the first place.

Well, you’re about to find out! I’m here to answer all of your IRS 2290 questions.

Form 2290 Due Date

Why September 3rd?

Normally, the Form 2290 deadline is August 31st.

This year, that date falls on a Saturday. The next business day would be Monday, September 2nd, but that’s Labor Day.

Therefore, this year, the Form 2290 due date is September 3rd, 2019.

You might be thinking about how lucky you are to get a couple extra days this year but think again.

As tempting as it may be to wait until the last minute, how likely are you to think about filing IRS 2290 and paying your 2290 highway use tax after a weekend and holiday…?

Trust me. File today or, at the very latest, file August 30th. That way you’ll ensure that the 2290 deadline is met.

Plus, if there are any issues or your IRS Form 2290 is rejected and you need to make corrections, you’ll have time to do so before the Form 2290 due date.

I'm not asking much. If you file with an IRS-authorized e-file provider like ExpressTruckTax the whole process takes as little as 10 minutes.


Seriously, just get it over with.

What About the IRS 2290 Payment?

So, you might’ve heard that if you can’t afford to pay your IRS 2290 payment right now, you should go ahead and file IRS Form 2290 anyway.

This is true.

Failing to file IRS Form 2290 by the 2290 filing deadline will result in a penalty of 4.5% of the 2290 highway use tax due. This will increase monthly for up to 5 months.

However, the penalty for failing to pay your IRS 2290 payment is only 0.5% of your total tax amount, plus additional interest of 0.54% per month.

Even if you can’t afford to pay your IRS 2290 payment right now, you should still file.

If you file but do not pay your full 2290 highway use tax amount, you’ll face a much lower penalty (0.5% compared to 4.5% of the total tax due).

Maybe you can pay by September 3rd, but not by tomorrow.
File today anyway.

You don’t want to get stuck with a rejected return or worse, without a 2290 Schedule 1

You may face unexpected penalties.

You never know what could happen. Take a moment to file now.


When Will I Get My 2290 Schedule 1?

Your 2290 Schedule 1 is a huge part of why it’s so critical for you to file on time.

An updated 2290 Schedule 1 is necessary for operation, including anything from renewing your tags to traveling internationally or renewing your IFTA license.

If you file IRS 2290 online with ExpressTruckTax, you’ll get a copy of your 2290 Schedule 1 just minutes after IRS Form 2290 filing. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

Pay Your HVUT Your Way On Your Time

0
You've taken the time to e file, before the start of the Form 2290 2019 tax season, now you are wondering what comes next. We have worked alongside the IRS for years to ensure you always come out on top. ExpressTruckTax allows you to pay your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax, also known as HVUT 2019, the way you want. It's your money, so who are we to tell you how to use it?

Payments We Accept

ExpressTruckTax accepts HVUT 2019 payments via credit card, debit card, direct debit, electronic funds withdrawal (EFW), Electronic Federal Tax Payment System - EFTPS online, or by check/money order. Making your IRS 2290 payment is easy with ExpressTruckTax. There are options for your IRS 2290 payment that aren't offered everywhere, so having us in your corner this year is the correct way to e file 2290.

Credit or Debit Card

We are happy to say that we are the only e file Form 2290 filing solution partnered with Official Payments, leading electronic payment solution for the IRS, states, municipalities, and colleges/universities nationwide.

ExpressTruckTax clients are privileged to pay 2290 with credit card or debit card.
The 2019-20 tax year is the second year that truckers can pay 2290 online. Heavy Use Vehicle Tax online payments with the pay 2290 with credit card method are not supported by all e file 2290 filing solutions, so we are proud to be amongst those leading the way.

Direct Debit or Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW)

When you use this method you are authorizing the IRS to debit your owed amount from your account. This method requires you to provide your bank account number and routing.

It is important to double-check the account information to avoid possible penalties for late payment. The IRS typically debits accounts within 24-48 hours, so double-check the amount in your account to avoid your payment being declined.

Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) 

ExpressTruckTax clients can pay 2290 online with the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS). EFTPS online is a system of paying federal taxes electronically using the Internet or phone. EFTPS online allows users to schedule payments, in advance. When this method is selected you will automatically be directed to the EFTPS online website. It can take up to 10 business days to create an account, so for those choosing to wait until the last minute this method may not be the best idea.

Check or Money Order

If choosing to make an IRS 2290 payment with a check or money order there is a certain procedure you will have to follow and pay close attention to. 

We've listed the steps for your HVUT 2019 convenience:

  • Make your check or money order payable to the United States Treasury. Write your name, address, EIN, 'IRS Form 2290', and date (as entered in box 3) on your payment.
  • Detach your 2290-V and send it with your payment. If you filed electronically, do not submit your Form 2290 or stamped Schedule 1 with your payment voucher. (*Do not staple your payment voucher, payment, or Form 2290 together.)

Send your payment and the 2290-V voucher to:

Internal Revenue Service,
P.O. Box 804525,
Cincinnati, OH 45280-4525


We Got You Covered

Whether you choose to make an online payment for your HVUT 2019 using EFTPS online, pay 2290 with credit card or debit card, go the direct debit route, try the Electronic Funds Withdrawal payment method, or choose the classic check or money order method, ExpressTruckTax has you covered.


When you choose to file your 2019 Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form, HVUT 2019, before July 1st you make the wisest decision for your time and money. Our goal is to save you money and support you while you do what you love. The half-million clients that file with ExpressTruckTax can tell you just how much we put you and your family's needs high on our priority list.
