File HVUT Error Free with ExpressTruckTax
If there’s one thing we know about tax time, it’s how stressful it can be. With deadlines everywhere, it almost feels like you’re racing the clock to get everything done.

Which is why we also know, plenty of filers out there make mistakes. Sometimes it's the wrong vehicle identification number (VIN), which can go unnoticed until it’s too late.

Of course, sometimes you file and think everything is fine, only to find out your return has been rejected.

So what should you do? Well, at ExpressTruckTax, we make sure that our e-filing customers have a few safety lines in the IRS Form 2290 game.

Free VIN Corrections:

This is pretty straightforward - we have implemented a system that allows our current year e-filers to come back and file a FREE VIN correction. That’s right, free! Trust us, it’s a lot better than correcting your VIN at an IRS office.

If you didn’t file Form 2290, but you need to file a correction, it’s only a small fee using our system. Don’t make that mistake twice!

We also offer Form 2290 Amendments for increase in vehicle weight and suspended vehicles exceeding their mileage.

Audit Check BEFORE Filing

One of the most important features we offer at ExpressTruckTax is an audit check before you transmit Form 2290. Now, this “audit check” inspects your return for any major errors that can keep your return from being accepted.

By reviewing your errors before we transmit, you won’t have your return rejected right off the bat.

Free Re-Filing for Rejected Returns

Alright, so you messed up something BIG and it snick through the cracks. Don’t freak out—you can re-file any rejected returns with ExpressTruckTax.

Not bad, eh?

So when you go to e-file your HVUT IRS Form 2290 - are you gonna go with some run of the mill e-filer, or the premier e-filing solution?

The choice is clear if you ask us!

How To Keep Your Form 2290 From Being Rejected By The IRS


The IRS may reject a return for various reasons, but there are 4 main reasons we at ExpressTruckTax run into.

1. Business Name or EIN does not match what the IRS has on file.

The Business Name and EIN must match exactly what the IRS has on file. For most owner-operators, your name will be your Business Name because that is what is on your title – it just makes it easier. The IRS no longer accepts social security numbers as an EIN. If you have forgotten what business name or ein that is registered with the IRS, you can call their EIN hotline to find out. Just dial 1-800-829-4933. If you do not have an EIN, you can easily apply for one online at

2. Duplicate filing

The IRS will only accept one filing for a specific truck, meaning, you can’t file twice for one vehicle. When filing through ExpressTruckTax, you can see what trucks you have filed for already on your Dashboard page. It is best to call the IRS Excise Tax Hotline if you get this error message – the number is 1-866-699-4096.

3. Bank Routing number is incorrect

It happens, where you put in a wrong number for your Bank Routing information. The best thing to do is call your bank and make sure you have the correct routing number and compare it to the number you entered into the payment information. You can log into your ExpressTruckTax account an double check the payment information you entered.

4. EIN has not registered in the IRS system yet.

If you get a brand new EIN, it takes up to 10 business days to register in the IRS system before you can file. You will get an error message that says your EIN does not match what the IRS has in their system, but that is because it has not been entered into their records yet.

Before you begin filing your Form 2290 HVUT make sure to have all the correct business information. If you choose to pay by Electronic Funds Withdraw, where the IRS payment comes directly out of your bank account, make sure you have the correct routing and account number.
