IRS Form 2290 Payment Methods

IRS Form 2290 Payment Methods
IRS Form 2290 Payment Methods
You can pay for your taxes with 3 different payment methods, but unfortunately, credit card and debit card are not an option.

However, you can pay your ExpressTruckTax Filing Fee with credit (or) debit. But that’s it!

So how can you pay for Form 2290?

Direct Debit or Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW):


If you go with EFW for payment, the IRS will initiate an electronic funds withdrawal (direct debit) from your bank, using bank details that you provide.

Of course, you want to make sure that you have enough funds in your account to cover the taxes due.

EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System):


Here’s the tricky one - the IRS accepts payments via EFTPS, as well. You need to schedule the EFTPS payment on your own and you are responsible for timely payment of the taxes.

Now, this option isn’t for everybody and most single truck filers won’t have this as an option. To find out more, visit the EFTPS website or call 1-800-555-4477.

For Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) payments to be on time, you must initiate the transaction at least 1 business day before the date the payment is due.

Check (or) Money Order:


You can also send your payment by check or money order, but not by cash. When you pay by check or money order, you need to print the completed payment voucher - 2290-V, page 5 of the completed form 2290.

Make your payment payable to the United States Treasury, and then write your name, address, EIN, "IRS Form 2290" and the date (as entered in Box 3) on your payment. Detach the voucher 2290-V and send it with your payment.

If you have filed electronically, don’t send IRS Form 2290 and Schedule 1 with the payment voucher. Don’t staple your payment to the voucher or IRS Form 2290, either.

Send the payment and voucher 2290-V to:

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



Just to reiterate, you cannot pay for your 2290 taxes with a credit or debit card! We accept the payment only for the filing fee.

If you have any questions about payment methods, reach out to our awesome support team at ExpressTruckTax by phone at 704.234.6005.

Three Easy Ways to Pay Your HVUT

0

Gathering the funds to pay your HVUT each year is headache enough! Sending those funds to the IRS should be the easy part.

That’s why ExpressTruckTax has gone above and beyond to make paying your heavy vehicle use taxes easy. We offer three ways to pay your taxes, and no matter which one you choose, rest assured that we’ve made it quick and simple.

Here’s the lowdown on each payment method. Choose whichever is most convenient for you!


Direct Debit

  • Also known as EFW (Electronic Funds Withdrawal), this is the fastest, easiest way to pay your HVUT, and you can only do it if you E-file!
  • EFW means the IRS will initiate a direct debit from your bank account. In order to do this, they’ll need your bank routing number and account number. Both can be located along the bottom of one of your checks. 
  • When paying with direct debit, the IRS will not process your return on a weekend or holiday, but on the next business day. For immediate processing of your return, pay by Check or Money Order (see below). 

EFTPS


  • The Electronic Federal Tax Payment System may be a mouthful, but it’s another free and convenient way to pay your HVUT. 
  • A free service provided by the US Dept. of the Treasury, you must register with this system 5-7 business days prior to your first payment. Register for free by visiting http://www.eftps.gov or by calling 1-800-555-4477. When you enroll, be sure to have your EIN, bank account, bank routing number, and address and name as they appear on IRS documents.
  • What’s so cool about EFTPS? You can schedule a business payment up to 120 days in advance. But keep in mind that you can’t schedule same-day payments. So be sure to schedule at least 1 business day prior to your tax due date!

Check or Money Order


  • This is the only way to pay if you need your stamped Schedule 1 on a weekend or holiday.
  • When paying by check or money order, you must submit a completed 2290-V Payment Voucher. Here’s the good news. ExpressTruckTax creates one for you! It’s page 5 of your completed 2290. Just detach the bottom portion, paper clip to your payment (do not staple them together!), and mail. How easy was that?!
  • “Where do I mail it to,” you ask? (Yes, I can hear your thoughts!) Instructions are on your voucher, but for the sake of convenience, here’s the address:

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

You’ll notice that a credit card is not one of the available payment options. That’s because the IRS no longer accepts tax payments via credit card. You will, however, need a credit card when E-filing to pay our $9.90 E-filing fee, so keep your card on hand!

Of course, if you need any assistance on the payment page, or along any other step of your E-filing journey, just reach out to our support team! They can help you choose which payment option suits you best. Just call 704.234.6005 or for 24/7 assistance email support@expresstrucktax.com.

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.
