5 Simple Steps to File Form 2290
As we keep rolling through truck tax season, we’ve had a few callers ask us to go through the e-filing system step-by-step.

So we’re gonna break things down real quick, and show you that you can e-file Form 2290 in 5 easy steps!

First Step - Login

The first step for any truck tax filer is to create their account—of course, if they’ve filed with us before, they can just sign in.

It’s easy, it only takes a moment, and it’s FREE. We won’t charge you a single cent for creating your account! You only pay once you’ve e-filed using our service, which won’t take too long, thankfully.

Second Step - Information

On your second step, you enter your business information. This includes your name and your Employer Information Number (EIN), which you need to make sure you know.

Pro Tip: Did you know you can e-file 2290 directly from the ExpressTruckTax App?

Third Step - Details

Now you need to enter your tax year and first used month for the vehicle(s) you are filing for. The tax year for IRS Form 2290 starts July 1 of each year and ends on June 30 of the following year.

You file Form 2290 based on the first used month of the vehicle. For example, if your vehicle was first used on public highways in September, you have until October 31 to file your 2290.

After that, enter your vehicle identification number (VIN) and the taxable gross weight of the vehicle you are filing for. You can also select if your vehicle is used for any special purposes, such as for agricultural use or logging.

Fourth Step - Payment

As we calculate the taxes on your 2290, make sure you’re familiar with the IRS payment options available to pay the IRS for your HVUT, including:

  • Direct Debit or Electronic Funds Withdrawal
  • Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS)
  • Check or Money Order

Fifth Step - Transmit

Before we transmit, we’ll check over your form to make sure it’s clear of any basic errors. On your end, double check the summary to be sure that your business and vehicle information are correct. Once your payment information has been entered, your return is ready to be transmitted to the IRS. Simply add your electronic signature and transmit!



Secret Final Step - Celebrate

A few moments after you file, you’ll get your 2290 Schedule 1. With that in hand, you can go out and celebrate. If you have some vacation time, that is. If not, at least you’ll be roadworthy!

If you have any questions about filing your excise taxes, please reach out to us and let us know! Our dedicated customer service team is waiting by the phones and checking their inbox, ready to help you!

This year, no one will receive that form via postal mail.  The IRS Form 2290 is due between July 1, 2011 - August 31, 2011.  If you E-File with ExpressTruckTax.com you will receive email reminders each yearso that we can keep you informed even though the IRS may not.

Expected delay for filing IRS Form 2290(2011-12)

0
The annual filing season of IRS Form 2290 for 2011-12 may be delayed.  IRS will not accept any paper format or e-filing at this time. An announcement on when it will be in place is expected to be made by IRS.

A meeting was conducted by IRS regarding the extension of time for tax filings for Form 2290.  Right now, the tax legislation is tied up in Congress. A new legislation need to be passed before IRS can collect the 2011-12 Form 2290 tax for the entire year.

Normal tax filing is not going to happen because of issues within the congress. IRS may wait as long as possible so that a single tax return is all that will be necessary for the 2011-12 tax Year. However a backup plan is in place so that a 3 month tax (July, August and September) can be collected by August 31st filing deadline. When the new legislation is passed, it will determine what happens for the reminder of the 2011/12 tax year.
