0
Unfortunately, taxes can’t be avoided. No matter how fast you run or how hard you fight tax deadlines still slowly creep towards you. The only way to make it out unscathed is to file your return and pay the amount owed to the IRS by the deadline.

Luckily for the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) deadline that’s coming for you on August 31st, ExpressTruckTax provides a quick and convenient e-filing method, so you can file your 2290 hassle free and instantly get your stamped Schedule 1. Check out why ExpressTruckTax is the market leader in the 2290 e-filing industry.

The Benefits Of E-Filing With ExpressTruckTax 

ExpressTruckTax saves you time. Instead of having to go wait in a long line at an IRS office, you can quickly e-file online with ExpressTruckTax. Plus, the e-filing process is incredibly easy. All you have to do is follow the step-by step guide to complete your form in just a few minutes and transmit it directly to the IRS.

Also, if you filed with us previously then you can copy your information from a previously accepted return to your current one. This way you don’t have to spend time re-entering your information.

With the bulk upload feature, you can quickly upload all of the information for your vehicles at once, helping those with multiple vehicles save time because they won’t have to enter their trucks in one by one. Use the ExpressTruckTax excel template or your own file to upload all of your vehicles at the same time.

You don’t even need a computer to file. Download the ExpressTruckTax App to file from any location at any time. As long as you have any web based device like a smartphone or tablet, which we’re sure you have since it’s 2017, then you can file from any location. If you’re out on a trip? No problem, handle all of your 2290 needs with the mobile app.

The ExpressTruckTax system is full of helpful hints and tips along the way. If you aren’t sure if you have a suspended vehicle or not, then you can read about what qualifies as a suspended vehicle while filing. By the way, a suspended vehicle is any taxable vehicle that is expected to be used for less than 5,000 miles (7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles) during the tax period.

ExpressTruckTax will get you your 2290 Schedule 1. As soon as the IRS stamps it, you’ll receive a copy via email. However, you can also elect to have your stamped Schedule 1 texted, faxed, or mailed to any location, making it super easy to send it to your carrier.

Will These 5 Technologies Help or Hurt Truckers?

0
You hear it all the time, technology will kill the trucking industry.

We know that robo-truckers are supposed to show up with their drone-powered rigs and shut down the whole transportation field.

Until the Terminator has as much intuition as a veteran trucker, we’re not gonna lose sleep over it.

But what new technologies are being developed to help truckers?

From heartbeats to healthy sleep, we’re looking at 5 new and helpful technologies headed your way.

Seats That Monitor You


You spend most of your day planted in the seat of your truck—it’s the perfect way to monitor everything from your heart health to your alertness.

With increased monitoring, companies are hoping to create more awareness and prevent dangerous heart attacks from taking down truckers.

The seat could even alert a driver to pull over and await an ambulance's arrival!

A Steering Wheel and Gearshift That Feel You


With your hands strapped across the wheel, you know you’re in control of your rig. But are you in control of your health?

With biometric telemetry built directly into the hands-on parts of the truck, it will be easy to track health stats with your steering wheel or gearshift.

Imagine the possibilities when it comes to monitoring health this way—in every vehicle, drivers can be alerted if they’re above the drinking limit, if their diabetes is affecting their blood sugar, or if their blood pressure is dangerously high.

Your Mobile Tech Will Help


As phones continue to improve in speed and quality, we are going to see more mobile health advancements.

Mobile technology doesn’t just mean smartphones either! Smartwatches, fitness bands, and mobile monitoring devices will continue to improve and diversify into health and wellness.


Cameras Watching out for You


Nothing is more helpful in an accident than a good dash cam. But dash cams may just be the start. Mitsubishi is developing technology that will analyze truck movement, the driver’s expression, and heart rate to monitor fatigue and general health conditions.

Cameras are a touchy subject, though, because nobody wants their privacy invaded. Especially truckers—so this will be a growing technology to watch.

Improved Sleep with Better Devices


Sleeping makes the difference between a slow motion driver and lightning fast trucker! We’ve given out sleep advice before, but advice isn’t going to help you if you have sleep apnea.

Advancements in CPAP machines will not only increase their portability, but they can also record the quality, duration, and patterns of sleep. That would open the door to better predictions for drowsy driving.

As far as technologies that will help you, we only know so much of what the future will bring. What we know now is that the HVUT e-filing from ExpressTruckTax is technology that works for you now!

Do you think cameras will help your health? What about biometric seats? Let us know on Facebook!

File Like an Expert: Tax Deductions for Truckers

0
Would you head out on the road without any idea where you’re going? I didn’t think so. So why would you head into tax season without a plan?

Your truck isn’t just a vehicle, it’s also a place of business. It makes sense that you would qualify for multiple tax deductions for your truck use.

So let’s look at some money saving secrets you can implement on your tax return. Whether you’re a company driver or an owner-operator, there could be a deduction in your future. Basically, your deductions should be for items that help you complete your driving job.


So What Can I Deduct?

Well what are some items that can be deducted? Cleaning supplies, office supplies, and miscellaneous supplies all count. As long as the supplies help you run and maintain your business, you can claim them.

But it doesn’t stop there! Electronics equipment like your CB radio, power boosters, GPS units (including map updates) can be counted as deductions. Tractor supplies like bunk heaters, coolers, de-icers, and window screens are all fine for deductions, too.

Really, you can apply this to a lot of items that come into use. Bungee cords, load chains, locks, and wide load flags are all vital load securement tools that are required for your work. Tools like electrical tape, tire irons, and flashlights can count, too. Safety clothing like gloves, boots, and thermals can be a necessity for the job.

Your personal hygiene is a vital part of your job, so that can even factor into your deductions! Whether you’re going to a tax professional or working with a family member familiar with tax code, make sure you go over every possible deduction at hand.

I Have a Lot of Deductions… I Need More Time!

Instead of worrying about filing time, head over to ExpressExtension and e-file for an automatic tax extension. With personal extension Form 4868, you can extend your personal filing deadline to October 17th. If you’re a fleet owner, there are plenty of options for you at ExpressExtension. You can e-file business extension Form 7004 and extend your deadline up to 6 months. And if you need more time to file 1099s, W-2s, and ACA Form 1094/1095, e-file Form 8809 with ExpressExtension for a 30 day extension!

When it comes time to file your taxes, professional help is best. And when it comes time to file your HVUT 2290s, call our dedicated, bilingual customer service team at 704.234.6005. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with upcoming tax deadlines and the latest trucking news.

What are some other trucking expenses you could claim as tax deductions?

E-filing Excise Taxes Now Available For Heavy Highway Vehicles

0
Although it has been a long year for those in the Trucking and Transportation Industry, It is now possible to transmit returns to the IRS through Express Truck Tax. The process for filing Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Returns was briefly interrupted as the legislation that controlled the tax itself nearly expired. Fortunately, due to urges from various congressmen and President Obama himself, the legislation was extended. Had Congress let the legislation expire, there would have been a shutdown of any government funded Transportation jobs. Although many industry experts agree that new legislation is needed, this extension serves as a quick fix the much worse possibility of all government transportation projects being shut down.

This change resulted in a later filing period for 2011 - 2012. Instead of filing by the month of August, the filing period for the 2011-2012 tax period begins on November 1st and ends on November 30th 2011. The IRS did not even begin accepting these forms until November 1st. With a much shorter filing period, those needing to file a Form 2290 will greatly benefit from eFiling this return. The IRS has been steadily pushing people to eFile since last year. The IRS is no longer sending paper forms to those needing to file. They even admit that the eFiling process is easier for them and saves the government money as opposed to paper filing.

The Form 2290 is incredibly easy to eFile with Express Truck Tax. The whole process can be completed in a matter of minutes. Once the 2290 Form has been submitted to the IRS, a Stamped Schedule 1 will be sent from the IRS directly to the taxpayer through Express Truck Tax. The form will arrive as a pdf attachment in an email.

To fill out the Form 2290 online, all you will need is the basic business information such as the EIN, VIN, and the vehicle weight. The IRS accepts several different payment options including: Electronic Funds Withdrawal, EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System), and also check or money order. Each of these options is fairly simple. Electronic Funds Withdrawal is a very quick and immediate process, just provide your bank account number as well as your routing number, and the IRS will electronically withdraw the payment.

Express Truck Tax offers a very User-Friendly process. Instead of using a tax form that is loaded with confusing tax jargon, The Express Truck Tax system uses a series of basic questions that are simple and straightforward so that you can finish it in as little time as possible. Even if you have questions regarding the Form 2290, you can always call the dedicated Truck Tax Experts at their USA based customer support center in Rock Hill, SC at 704.234.6005 or email them at support@ExpressTruckTax.com
