IRS HVUT Form 2290 Taxes on Truckers

0
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for truckers is increasing and is expected to continue to increase 10% over the next 10 years. The heavy vehicle use tax or HVUT is a fee assessed annually on these heavy vehicles operating on public highways at registered gross weights equal to or exceeding 55,000 pounds. This tax is paid by filing IRS Form 2290. The current tax period is July 1, 2012-June 30, 2013. The deadline to file for all vehicles used during the month of July is August 31, 2012.

The penalty for not filing the IRS Form 2290 by August 31st is equal to 4.5% of total tax due.  This amount is assessed on a monthly basis up to five months. Those who choose not to make their HVUT payment also face an additional monthly 0.5% of the tax due penalty. Additional interest charges of 0.54% per month accrue as well. Within 5 months of not filing and paying the HVUT tax, the HVUT liability that was originally $550 will be over $700 in IRS tax debt. In addition to the monetary federal penalties, states suspend the registrations of vehicles for which proof of HVUT payment has not been provided. So not only will the taxpayer owe more money, they will also be unable to renew their registrations, so they will be unable to work. HVUT evasion penalties can even be as severe as fines and incarceration.

There are a few instances where a vehicle is exempt from paying the HVUT tax, even if most of those instances; a Form 2290 is required to be filed even if no tax is due. You can find detailed information on the IRS site at www.irs.gov/trucker.

You can e-file your Form 2290 quickly and easily at ExpressTruckTax.com and receive your Schedule 1 within minutes. Your Schedule 1 serves as proof of payment for your HVUT and when you file by the August 31, 2012 deadline you will avoid any IRS penalties.

Hidden Benefits of E-filing Federal Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290

0

While there are many obvious benefits to electronically file the IRS Form 2290 with ExpressTruckTax.com, there are also several that you may not initially recognize. The more obvious benefits to filing Truck Taxes with Express Truck Tax include a quicker filing process, more affordable pricing than other E-File providers, and a customer support team that can walk you through the process. But what you may not also realize is that it is also beneficial to the environment due to the lack of wasted paper; it also cuts down on our government’s spending because electronic returns are much easier for the IRS to process.

Not only does our excessive use of paper deplete our planet’s precious supply of natural resources, the harsh chemicals used to process, bleach, and create the paper that we use everyday is also causing damage. A simple way to help cut down on our heavy use of paper in our offices and homes is to utilize electronic forms when possible. It is also more secure to file documents electronically. With electronic transfers, your private information is sent directly to the person who should be receiving it, and there is no risk of getting lost in the mail or being sent to the wrong person.

Another benefit of E-filing tax returns with the IRS that may not be so obvious is that it costs much less for the IRS to process a return that has been E-Filed. With this country’s rising debt crisis, this is a small step that you can take to help reduce government redundancies, and keep the cost of running this government low.  

If these reasons alone are not enough to convince you to E-File, then feel free to call us at (704)234-6005. Our dedicated team of customer support professionals would love to talk to you in more detail about the filing process for IRS Form 2290, 8849, HVUT, and more.
