We offer Form 2290 Amendments for both our filers, as well as any filers who didn’t file with us.

Free VIN Corrections


When you file form 2290 online for 2016-2017, it’s not unheard of to rush through the process and find yourself a few months later in a sticky situation.

For example, if you realize your vehicle identification number was entered wrong during the deadline.

Instead of freaking out, head back to ExpressTruckTax and file a free VIN correction!

And if you didn’t file with us, no worries - it’s just a small fee!

Taxable Gross Weight Increase


After you file your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax return Form 2290, your vehicle’s taxable gross weight might increase.

If it does, simply login to ExpressTruckTax and e-file a 2290 Amendment for a taxable gross weight increase!

Mileage Exceeded


If a suspended vehicle exceeds the mileage limit, you need to e-file a 2290 Amendment. With a mileage exceeded, you can have us calculate and pay the excess tax for the year. All you need to do is e-file a truck tax Form 2290 Amendment for Mileage Exceeded.

So as we approach the 2290 truck tax due date, have no fear - we’ll be here to help you when you need to e-file a 2290 correction!

3 Reasons Why Your IRS Form 2290 Was Rejected

3 Reasons Why Your IRS Form 2290 Was Rejected
3 Reasons why your IRS Form 2290 was Rejected
Thousands of truckers across the country are getting ready to e-file their Heavy Vehicle Use Tax return Form 2290, hoping to just press transmit and be done with it all.

But what happens when you e-file truck tax Form 2290 only to find out it was later REJECTED by the IRS? The last thing you want to find out is about a rejected 2290 on the truck tax due date!

Thankfully, when you e-file with ExpressTruckTax, you get unlimited re-filing for rejected returns.

Today, we’re going to examine why your 2290 may be rejected.

Rejected Because of EIN


Sometimes, filers will find that their Employer Identification Number is the source of their rejection.

This can sometimes happen if the EIN that you entered doesn’t match the EIN the IRS has on record.

If that’s the case, you need to contact the IRS directly to find out what information they have in their system.

If you have a brand new EIN, it will take on average about 10 business days for the EIN to register in the IRS system for you to e-file.

If you try to e-file your 2290 the same day that you receive your EIN, it will be rejected and the reason will be the "EIN does not match business name".

After your new EIN is registered in the IRS system, you can simply re-transmit your 2290 return (for free) and it should be accepted as long as there aren’t any more errors.

Rejected Because of Duplicate Filing


Your 2290 can only be accepted by the IRS one time. If you receive this particular rejection, it means your 2290 has already been filed and confirmed by the IRS.

The good part about this rejection, is that it requires no fix because your return has already been filed!

Rejected for Routing Issues


If you face a Routing Transit Number Rejection, it has to do with your payment. If you paid using the Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW) option, a bank routing number is required.

If the wrong information was entered for your routing number, your 2290 will be rejected. You can correct the routing and re-transmit to the IRS and should receive confirmation of acceptance in only a few minutes.

Note: If you entered the incorrect routing number or bank account number and the return is accepted, it is up to you to contact the IRS to resolve the issue. For best practices, always double check your numbers before transmitting your return to the IRS.

Hopefully, you’ll have a good experience e-filing Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290. The deadline is fast approaching, so be ready!

Note: The deadline to e-file Form 2290 online for 2016-2017 is August 31.

If you have any questions about rejected returns, you can reach our customer support experts at 704.234.6005.
