The IRS Form 2290 Filing Season is Now Here
How to E-File Form 2290 Online?

After signing up for your free ExpressTruckTax account, you will enter the necessary information for your business like the name, address, and EIN (Employer Identification Number).

You will need information about your heavy vehicles to complete your IRS Form 2290, such as its WIN or Vehicle Identification Number and taxable gross weight. Remember that suspended vehicles must be included.

A suspended vehicle is one that is exempt from HVUT taxes for the current tax season. Vehicles with less than 5,000 miles are exempt, along with agricultural vehicles with less than 7,500 miles. When you’ve finished entering your information we will automatically calculate the amount of HVUT you owe, and you can pay the IRS with credit/debit, direct debit, electronic funds withdrawal, EFTP, check, or money order.

Then you will be presented with a summary of your IRS Form 2290 to make sure you have entered everything correctly, and we will perform an instant error check. Once you have corrected any mistakes, your IRS Form 2290 will be ready for submission. It will remain in our encrypted system until it is transmitted to the IRS on July 1st.

As soon as the IRS approves your IRS Form 2290, you will receive your stamped Schedule 1 via email.

Have You Heard About the New IRS Form 2290 Payment OptionsIt may be hard to believe, but it’s already time to start filing your 2018-19 2290! If you’re currently thinking, “Wait, 2290 season doesn’t start until July?” then you would be correct, partially. Since we’ve worked hand-in-hand with the IRS for more than ten years now, we are excited to offer IRS Form 2290 online filing for the 2018-19 tax year ahead of schedule. This is exclusive for ExpressTruckTax customers so you can get back to enjoying time with your family instead of worrying about filing your 2290 tax form.

IRS Payment Methods for Form 2290

When you file Form 2290 online with ExpressTruckTax, you’ll follow a step-by-step guide to complete your form in a matter of minutes. Once you get to the IRS payment step, you can choose between 4 different payment options based on the most convenient method for you. Yes, four! We’ve heard you and have added the option to pay your tax with a credit or debit card!

Credit or Debit Card

Starting in July 2018 the IRS will allow you to pay 2290 with a credit card or debit!

For more information on credit or debit card payments, go to IRS.gov/PayByCard.

Direct Debit or Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW)

Provide your banking information (account and routing number) through ExpressTruckTax’s safe and secure system to authorize the IRS to debit the amount you owe from your bank account. It is important that your account has enough funds to cover the amount you owe.

The amount is generally withdrawn in 24 to 48 hours after providing authorization. Keep in mind that this involves your banking information, not your credit/debit card number.

If you need to cancel your payment contact IRS payment services at 1.888.353.4537 at least 2 days before the payment date.

EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System) is the electronic tax payment system used by the IRS. If you choose this payment option you will be taken to the EFTPS site, and you’ll create a free account. Please keep in mind that it can take up to 10 business days to establish this type of account.


To pay the IRS through EFTPS, you will provide your bank account information and verify that the IRS is allowed to withdraw your tax payment from that account. In order to make your payment by the deadline, you must schedule it before 8 p.m. the day before the deadline for it to be received by the IRS in time.

Direct Debit or Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW)


You can also pay the amount of HVUT you owe with a Check or Money Order. If you choose this option you will need to print your completed payment voucher, 2290-V, from page 11 of your completed 2290 Form and mail to the IRS by the August 31st deadline.

Make your check or money order payable to the United States Treasury. Also, you will need to include your name, address, EIN, the date, and the words “IRS Form 2290” with your payment.

Do not staple your payment and voucher together.
Have You Heard About the New IRS Form 2290 Payment Options?

Send your payment and voucher 2290-V to:
Internal Revenue Service
P.O. Box 804525,
Cincinnati, OH 45280-4525

Remember, never send cash through the mail.

Important: If you have already paid your HVUT via Direct Debit or EFW and received a letter from the IRS saying they were unable to debit the funds there are a few likely causes:

- Your account and routing number were entered into ExpressTruckTax incorrectly. Even entering one character incorrectly will prevent the IRS from being able to withdraw the amount you owe.
- The IRS tried to debit your account, but you had insufficient funds. If you are even as little as 50 cents short then the IRS will not debit the funds.

If you receive a letter from the IRS saying they could not withdraw the funds from the bank account provided then you will need to send a check or money order to the IRS in order to pay the amount you owe by the August 31st deadline.
