Gross Vehicle Weight Increase: E-Filing Form 2290 Amendments

0
Gross Vehicle Weight Increase
Gross Vehicle Weight Increase
As part of our series on e-filing Form 2290 Amendments, we have to discuss the elephant in the room.

Yup, that’s right… Gross vehicle weight increases! If your truck goes up to the next weight class, that means you have to pay an increase on the heavy vehicle tax you owed during tax season.

Weight Classes


There are eight weight classes for trucks, and three weight categories. They include light duty, which is 6-15k lbs, medium duty, coming in at 14-26k lbs, and heavy duty, which ranges from 26k-33 lbs.

These three categories then get broken down into eight smaller weight classes. The weight class then determines how much you will owe in heavy vehicle use taxes for that year. The heavier your vehicle - the higher your taxes will be.

Gross Vehicle Weight Increases


With ExpressTruckTax, all you need to do is e-file a Form 2290 Amendment to account for your vehicle’s gross weight increase. It’s easy, it’s economical, and we’ll tell you how to do it!





After signing in, you start your amendment like we’ve discussed in our previous posts. Once inside the amendment form, you select your vehicle’s first-used month, and then select the month where your vehicle’s weight change occurred.

If you already e-filed your HVUT form with ExpressTruckTax this year, you just select the vehicle(s) you need to amend from your previous return and choose your new weight class. If you’re changing the weight for multiple trucks, click “Save & Add Another.”

Pro-Tip: If you e-filed your 2290 with us this year, you are able to e-file a FREE VIN correction.

After that, you simply choose your payment method like you would for your regular 2290, and follow through to transmittal.

Don’t forget, you need to submit your amendment by the last day of the month following the month in which your weight increase occurred. If your weight increase occurred in February, you would need to file your amendment by the end of March.

The good news is, that’s all you need to do! It’s a pretty simple process, actually.

If you need help e-filing any amendments, call us at 704.234.6005, or hit us up on Facebook and Twitter. We’ll be here to help in any way we can!

Form 2290: Adding Suspended Vehicles

0
Form 2290: Adding Suspended Vehicles
Form 2290: Adding Suspended Vehicles
Since we’ve been talking to you about Form 2290 Amendments, we decided to switch gears and talk a bit about suspended vehicles and IRS Form 2290.

If you didn’t realize it on our last post about VIN corrections, we’re big on making the process easier.

Understanding Suspended Vehicles


In order to file a regular-usage vehicle as suspended, its mileage use on public highways must be 5,000 miles or less; and for an agricultural suspended vehicle, the mileage use must be 7,500 miles or less.

Regardless of the number of owners, the mileage use limit refers to the total mileage a vehicle is used during the taxable period.

Like we said, agricultural vehicles have different rules. An agricultural vehicle is any motor vehicle that is used for farming purposes primarily, and registered as a highway motor vehicle by state law, and is used for farming purposes for the entire period. A farming vehicle has a special tag or license plate that identifies its agricultural status.

While you have to claim a suspended vehicle like you would any tax filing, it’s still a different process.

So what are the steps? They are as follows:

  • Just like in your standard filing, you select your First Used Month & Year right away. 
  • After that, if you were filing your typical 2290, you would enter or import your Taxable Vehicles. If you are still filing your 2290, go ahead and do this. 
  • At the next step, you simply add your Suspended Vehicles like you did with your taxable vehicles. 
  • On the next few steps, you’re able to view your information and edit it if necessary. 

Finish everything up like you would with your normal HVUT 2290 filing!




While it’s tempting to just skip the taxes that confuse you, it’s important to make sure you file your Form 2290 in all of it's glory. If you have any questions about e-filing a suspended vehicle, reach our customer support experts at 704.234.6005.

EIN Changes (Employer Identification Number)

0
As the IRS recently posted on their website, as of May 21st the IRS will only issue one EIN per day per “Responsible Party.” An EIN is an Employer Identification number. This number is assigned by the IRS to each business filing a tax return. This change comes right before the Truck Tax Season begins. As you may know the Tax year for HVUT runs from July - June. As of July 1st, it will be time to once again file the annual excise tax for Heavy Vehicles with the IRS Form 2290.

This EIN news is particularly relevant to those in the trucking industry because an EIN is required to file the Form 2290. In the past, the IRS has accepted a Social Security Number, but they have recently changed their requirements to no longer accept a Social Security Number in the place of an EIN.

The IRS definition of a Responsible Party can be found on their website. But it can be generally described as someone who has some sort of management or ownership in the business.

ExpressTruckTax.com is an IRS authorized E-File provider who can help you file form 2290 as well as keep secure online records of previously filed form 2290’s. For more information on the 2290 filing process, heavy vehicle use tax, IRS payment methods, etc visit the Express Truck Tax website or call our Truck Tax experts at 704-234-6005. You can also email any questions to support@ExpressTruckTax.com.

E-File a VIN Correction for your Form 2290 for FREE!!!

0
It is always important to be extra careful when filing any form with the IRS. A small mistake could end up costing you more money or risking an IRS audit. However, if you E-File the IRS Form 2290 for Heavy Vehicle Use Taxes through ExpressTruckTax.com you have the ability to resubmit it until it is accepted at no extra charge. Likewise, if a mistake is made while entering the Vehicle Identification Number, or VIN, a VIN Correction can also be E-Filed for free.

Entering the Vehicle Identification Number for heavy vehicles on the Form 2290 is typically a stumbling block for many taxpayers. This is due to the fact that the VIN is 17 Characters long and this needs to be added for each individual vehicle.

When paper filing this form, this would have to be written manually, but with ExpressTruckTax.com an excel file of all the vehicles can be uploaded instead. This saves time and helps eliminate the risk of error.

Reminder: a VIN is 17 Characters long and does not contain the following characters:
I
O
Q

If for any other reason an IRS Form 2290 is rejected by the IRS through ExpressTruckTax.com the taxpayer will still be able to make changes to their tax return and resubmit it to the IRS until it is accepted. There is no additional charge for this service either.

Filing this form online only takes a few minutes and you will receive a stamped schedule 1 within minutes of filing this form online.
