0
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.

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

As mentioned, filing IRS 2290 and paying HVUT 2290 online will save you tons of time.

The entire process takes minutes.

IRS Form 2290 filing is coming to a close with the heavy vehicle use tax upcoming deadline.
When you file IRS Form 2290 with ExpressTruckTax, you’ll also receive your stamped Schedule 1 just minutes after filing your 2290 tax.

You’ll also save time on potential HVUT rejection.

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.
Truck drivers are required to file IRS Form 2290 and make their IRS 2290 payment by the Form 2290 due date. 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.

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

January - March
April 30 
2nd Quarter
April - June
July 31
3rd Quarter

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.

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

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.

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.
