ExpressTruckTax Makes E-Filing Your HVUT Easy

0

Taxes can’t be avoided. On an annual basis, we have to file our personal taxes, business taxes, truck taxes, and more. It’s just how the system works. Failure to file or pay your taxes involves a storm of penalties and fees that nobody wants to deal with.

However, the process of filing your taxes doesn’t have to be stressful. Here at ExpressTruckTax, we have made the process of e-filing your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax extremely quick and simple.

A Little About the HVUT


Your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax or HVUT Form 2290 needs to be annually filed by August 31st. For new or new to you vehicles, you need to file your HVUT the last day of the month after your vehicle’s first used month. Meaning that if you first use your new vehicle in April then your HVUT is due by May 31st.

You’re subject to the HVUT if you own a taxable highway motor vehicle that has a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more. A highway motor vehicle is any vehicle that’s self-propelled and designed to carry loads over public highways or the perform other functions. The vehicle weight includes the chassis, but not the load.

E-Filing With ExpressTruckTax


The e-filing process with ExpressTruckTax is quick and simple. You can e-file Form 2290 and receive your stamped Schedule 1 in a matter of minutes.

To get started simply create your free account with ExpressTruckTax by registering with your email address and creating a personal password.

Then you’ll enter your business information and EIN. Your EIN is your Employee Identification Number or Federal Tax Identification Number. This number is used by the IRS to identify a business entity. You can verify your EIN or apply for an EIN by calling the IRS directly at 1-800-829-4933. You generally receive your EIN 15 days after applying. 

The next step involves selecting your tax year and first used month. The tax year for IRS Form 2290 starts on July 1st, 2016 and ends on June 30th, 2017. Your HVUT must be filed annually by August 31st or by the first used month for a new vehicle.

Next, you will need to enter your vehicle information, including the VIN or Vehicle Identification Number and taxable gross weight of your vehicle. Also, include if your vehicle is used for any special purposes like agricultural use or logging. You can enter multiple vehicles with ExpressTruckTax and your information will be saved for next time.

Then you will need to pay your HVUT to the IRS. We will calculate how much you owe based on the information you enter. The IRS payment options include Direct Debit or Electronic Funds Withdrawal, EFTPS, or a Check or Money Order.

We will perform an audit check on your form for any errors, and provide an information summary for you to review. Double check your information for any mistakes and edit your information if necessary. It’s very important that your VIN and business information are correct.

Once your payment information has been entered and you’re ready to transmit your return to the IRS, enter a 5 digit number of your choice at the bottom of the page to electronically sign and transmit to the IRS.

You will receive your stamped Schedule 1 via email once it is ready, and you can also elect to receive notifications via text and fax.

4 Types of HVUT Exempt Vehicles

0
Do you need to file HVUT Form 2290 for your rig? 

Probably. Unless your vehicle is exempt, that is. And if you don’t know, you’re gonna have some issues come deadline day.

So how do you know if your vehicle is exempt from your heavy vehicle taxes?

Just ask the IRS! I’m sure they’ll get back to you with a straight answer right away. Yeah right! But that’s what we’re here for—streamlining your truck tax filing process. So we’ll break things down for you.

Suspended Vehicles

Some vehicles that count as exempt include suspended vehicles. These are based on the number of miles driven, like commercial vehicles traveling fewer than 5,000 miles annually and agricultural vehicles traveling fewer than 7,500 miles annually.

Logging Vehicles

The taxes are lower for logging vehicles—vehicles used for transporting products harvested from the forest and registered with the state agency as such. What counts as a logging vehicle? First off, the truck is used exclusively to transport a harvest from a forested site, or the truck is used exclusively to transport harvested materials from one forested site to another forested site. Even if you use a public highway between sites, your vehicle can still be considered a logging vehicle. You also need to register your truck as a logging vehicle in your base state.

Exempt Groups

I’m sure you’re not surprised to find out that federal, state, and local governments are exempt from HVUT. Sounds like Washington to watch out for themselves! Of course, this privilege extends to the American Red Cross, nonprofit volunteer fire departments, rescue squads, Indian tribal government vehicles, and mass transportation authorities.

Exempt Vehicles

Vehicles not considered highway motor vehicles are also exempt, like mobile machinery for non-transportation functions, vehicles designed for off-highway transportation, and non-transportation trailers and semi-trailers. This also extends to qualified blood collector vehicles used by qualified blood collector organizations, and non-transportation mobile machinery.

If you’re an exempt carrier, you may be required to file tax forms with the IRS or notify your local DMV of the exempt status being claimed. Does your truck fit into one of the above categories? Then it's time to celebrate, because you won’t need to file heavy vehicle use tax!

Not sure about the status of your vehicle? We're here to help! You can reach us by phone at 704.234.6005 or email them for 24/7 assistance at support@expresstrucktax.com. We're here to put your mind at ease!
