Almost out of Time! Avoid Penalties, File IRS 2290 Now

0
Truckers speed into IRS 2290 filing, hurrying to file their 2290 highway use tax before the HVUT 2290 deadline.
The IRS 2290 filing deadline is coming up on September 3rd, 2019.

If you’re thinking of putting off filing IRS 2290 or waiting to pay your heavy vehicle use tax, I’m here to prepare you for the IRS penalties you can expect.

Plus, we’ll go over how exactly to avoid those penalties while saving money and time.

Let’s get started. 

Everything You Need For IRS 2290 Filing

IRS Form 2290 Filing Deadline

As mentioned, the 2290 deadline is September 3rd, 2019.

This is the deadline to file IRS Form 2290 and pay your 2290 tax amount.

Failing to file and pay heavy vehicle use tax will result in penalties from the IRS. The penalty for failing to file IRS Form 2290 on time is 4.5% of the total highway tax 2290 amount you owe, with additional 0.54% interest each month.

However, the penalty for filing your IRS Form 2290 but failing to pay your highway tax 2290 amount is 0.5% of the HVUT payment, substantially less than failing to file.

The interest is the same.

If you can’t afford to make your HVUT payment right this moment, file IRS Form 2290 anyway. 

There’s no reason to miss the deadline. The whole process takes a matter of minutes and can be done from your phone.

IRS 2290 Filing Tips

Save time by gathering information before you dive in. Here’s what you need for IRS Form 2290 filing:

-  EIN

You must have an EIN to file IRS 2290. If you need one, you can try to get one from the IRS in time, but we suggest calling TSNAmerica at 803.386.0320.

-  Business Information

You’ll need to enter your business name and address at the beginning of your IRS Form 2290.

-  VIN

This is your Vehicle Identification Number, and should be 17 characters long.

-  Authorized Signatory Details

This is the 5-digit unique signature PIN you’ll need to use to sign your IRS Form 2290.

-  Gross Taxable Weight

Your vehicle’s gross taxable weight is its weight when fully equipped for service, minus the weight of you and the load. You can find this on your cab card or sticker inside the door.

-  HVUT Payment Information

Pay your HVUT 2290 tax amount online fast. Leading IRS-authorized e-file providers like ExpressTruckTax will offer multiple payment options, including credit card, direct debit, EFW (Electronic Funds Transfer), and EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System).

Once you’re ready, choose an IRS-authorized online filing system. Filing IRS 2290 highway use tax online will save you loads of time and ensure that you receive your 2290 Schedule 1 fast

The Quickest Way to File

As mentioned, filing IRS 2290 and paying HVUT 2290 online will save you tons of time.

The entire process takes minutes.

When you file IRS Form 2290 with ExpressTruckTax, you’ll also receive your stamped Schedule 1 just minutes after filing your 2290 tax.

You’ll also save time on potential HVUT rejection.

Things You Need To Know: HVUT, Highway Tax 2290, and IFTA Tax

0
Truck tax deadlines are approaching and truckers must stay on top of HVUT, Form 2290, and IFTA tax filing.
With every deadline comes more confusion.

You might think, “What are all these forms and payments, and why am I constantly dealing with them?”

Understanding HVUT, highway tax 2290, and IFTA tax will prepare you to file quickly each year and keep you from making filing mistakes.

Knowing the differences will also give you an idea of if you need to file, and when to file.

HVUT

HVUT, or Heavy Vehicle Use Tax, is a tax on heavy vehicles used to fund highway maintenance.

You must pay Heavy Highway Use Tax if your truck has a gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more and is driven on public highways over 5,000 miles per year. Gross weight is weight when fully equipped for service.

Heavy Highway Use Tax is an annual tax. The HVUT deadline is the same as the 2290 highway use tax form deadline. HVUT is also known as HVUT 2290 because of its connection with Form 2290, which we’ll talk about next.

Highway Tax 2290

Highway Tax 2290, or simply Form 2290, is the form used to pay your HVUT amount.

Form 2290 is also used to calculate the Heavy Highway Use Tax amount you owe, determine your truck’s category, claim an exemption or credit, and more.

Highway Tax 2290 proves why the HVUT 2290 amount you’re paying is what you’re paying.

You need an EIN to file 2290 Highway Use Tax Form. The deadline is the same as the HVUT 2290 deadline. File Highway Tax 2290 Form and pay HVUT 2290 by the end of the month after your first use month.

IFTA Tax

The IFTA tax is not related to HVUT 2290 and Highway Tax 2290 Form. IFTA, or International Fuel Tax Agreement, ensures that each state/province is paid the correct IFTA fuel tax.

IFTA fuel tax becomes important when vehicles travel frequently across state borders. If trucks fill up in one state and immediately cross to the next, the state they’re driving in is losing out.

With IFTA reporting, truckers track miles in each state.

You need to pay IFTA fuel tax quarterly if your vehicle has 2 axles and a gross vehicle weight or registered gross weight > 26,000 pounds, has a combined weight of 26,000 pounds or has 3 or more axles regardless of weight.

Here are the deadlines:




Quarter Periods

This is Why IRS 2290 Online Filing is the Ultimate Tax Experience

0
Truckers hurry to take advantage of 2290 online filing to submit their IRS Form 2290 before the Form 2290 due date.
Today, IRS Form 2290 filing isn’t half bad. Filers can log in to a website, enter some information, and file with the click of a button.

Before 2290 online filing was an option, all forms were filled out by hand and mailed or brought in to the IRS office.

This method led to long IRS lines, frustrated filers, and severe wait time between submitting IRS 2290 and finding out if it was accepted or rejected.

Not to mention the delay in receiving a copy of your 2290 Schedule 1.

Times have changed for the better. Here’s everything you need to know about filing Form 2290 online. 


The World of IRS 2290 Online Filing

Highway Tax 2290

As you might know, IRS Form 2290 is used to pay HVUT 2290, an annual tax collected from those who operate heavy vehicles on public highways in order to maintain those highways.

It’s important to file Form 2290 for 2019 before the September 3rd Form 2290 due date to avoid IRS penalties.

Filing your highway tax 2290 online with the right provider takes just minutes, and you’ll receive your stamped Schedule 1 shortly after filing.

The Most Important Remix of Old Town Road Has Arrived

0
How many times do you think Lil Nas X can remix “Old Town Road?” We hope it’s a lot.

Rather than waiting for an unlikely HVUT 2290 remix, we took matters into our own hands.

Ladies and gents, boys and girls, grab your cowboy hats and saddle up because we’re about to take a trip to Old Town Rock Hill.


The Most Important Remix of Old Town Road Has Arrived



Why “Old Town Road?” & Other Fun Facts

It’s no secret - the Form 2290 for 2019 deadline is approaching.

You must file Form 2290 for 2019 to stay compliant with heavy highway tax 2290 and receive your Schedule 1.
We have the perfect HVUT 2290 solution, but how can we spread the word?

One day, the sales team upstairs was helping 2290 Form 2019 filers complete their HVUT 2290 heavy highway tax 2290 when they noticed they were hearing the same song over and over.

It was May, and “Old Town Road” was blowing up the radio, quickly becoming one of the biggest hits in the nation.

We were constantly reminded of the tune, both hearing it in the office and seeing the unique flags lining the streets outside, welcoming us every day to Old Town Rock Hill.

It was Amber, the Director of Transportation Products, who connected the dots with a plan.

“We see those flags every day when we come into the office to help people file taxes. I realized we’d been given a unique opportunity to relate to our customers.”
Transforming 2290 Form 2019 from a headache to a simple process is our overarching mission.

Creating a remix of “Old Town Road” would help us convey that taxes don’t have to be boring.

“I picked up the idea and ran,” says Caitlyn, our Digital Marketing Content Creator.
Thus began a team effort to create a remix of “Old Town Road” dedicated to reminding you to hammer down and file your taxes.

Behind the Scenes of Our Old Town Road Remix

From the start, we knew this HVUT 2290 Form 2019 remix of “Old Town Road” would rely on collaboration.

Our Marketing Team created lyrics for the remix and Taylor, our Content Marketing Specialist, contacted her cousin, the owner of Rich Game Stables in Matthews, NC.

It was all hands on deck. Cardboard trucks were built and painted. Paint was spilled and shoes were destroyed. That’s how it goes in showbiz. 🤷

We definitely faced our challenges. Mixing the music to produce the remix of “Old Town Road” was beyond our technical skills, but we persevered for the sake of 2290 Form 2019 filing.

Even our handmade trucks survived South Carolina heat just long enough for footage before its glue melted and they collapsed.
