Your Trucking Guide To IRP Reporting

0
ExpressTruckTax makes Form 2290 easy
When it comes to truck taxes there are multiple forms to file and tons of deadlines. We know that you’re familiar with your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290, and you regularly file your quarterly IFTA return, but what about your IRP return?

Your IRP return is actually pretty closely related to your HVUT return, and IFTA report, because you need your Schedule 1 to complete your IRP return, and you also need to track your mileage per jurisdiction. This may seem overwhelming, but we’re here to help clear everything up.

The Trucking Guide To IRP Reporting


First of all, IRP is the International Registration Plan and it’s a reciprocal agreement that authorizes proportional registration among the 48 contiguous United States and 10 Canadian provinces.

This agreement provides apportioned payments based off of the total distance operated in each jurisdiction (state). That means the operator of the vehicle must report the number of miles traveled per jurisdiction on an annual basis and pay the amount of taxes they owe to their base jurisdiction (home state).

IRP Requirements

You are responsible for completing your IRP return if you operate a heavy vehicle that operates in more than one jurisdiction and it:

  • Weighs more than 26,000 pounds
  • Has three or more axles, regardless of weight, or
  • Is a power unit and trailer with a gross vehicle weight higher than 26,000 pounds.
To first receive your IRP license you must register with your base jurisdiction. Then you will receive your IRP license, which should be carried in your cab at all times. You will also have a specially marked license plate.

Then each year you will need to file your IRP return to renew your tags and to continue legally operating in multiple jurisdictions. Your IRP return deadline is based on the expiration date on your license plate.

In order to complete your return, you need to list the mileage traveled per jurisdiction during the year. Your mileage can be recorded with the same online program you use for your IFTA report, like ExpressIFTA.

Are You Prepared For These Tax Deadlines?

0

How are things going? We know it’s a busy time since business picks up in the spring. Plus, you’re really focusing on driving carefully due to all the crazy storms that are popping because of unpredictable April weather. On top of all that, tax season is here!

Luckily you have ExpressTruckTax here to help out in any way we can by providing you with a simple way to quickly e-file your HVUT, calculate your IFTA totals, and inform you about upcoming tax deadlines. So, let’s take a look at what’s coming up.

Upcoming Tax Deadlines


Watch out, at the end of the month your first quarter IFTA report is due! The deadline falls on April 30th, which is a Sunday. Since the deadline falls on a weekend day, the actual IFTA deadline is on the next business day, Monday, May 1st. That gives you the entire weekend to calculate your IFTA totals!

But who wants to spend their weekend calculating when they could be relaxing and watching the game? That’s why we’ve made it extremely easy to quickly calculate and keep track of everything you need for your IFTA totals.

You can use the quick entry screen to keep up with your odometer readings, quickly calculate your totals with our fuel tax calculator app, keep up with your miles per jurisdiction with our trip sheets, and more.
 
Your HVUT is due annually on August 31st, so you may feel a little more relaxed about that deadline since you have all summer to file your 2290. However, if you have a new truck or new to you truck then your HVUT is due the last day of the month after your first used month. Meaning if you first use your new vehicle in April then your 2290 is due by May 31st.

ExpressTruckTax is the market leading HVUT solution because we’ve simplified the e-filing process to help you fill out your Form 2290 and receive your stamped Schedule 1 in a matter of minutes.

Our step-by-step guide will help you instantly complete your 2290, and our 2290 calculator will help you accurately calculate how much you owe. Plus, your vehicle information will be saved for next time, and we offer free VIN corrections. After you’ve transmitted your 2290 to the IRS you’ll quickly receive a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 via email.

All of that stuff is great for your truck taxes, but what about your personal taxes?! The Income Tax Return Deadline is quickly approaching April 18th! We understand that while you’re busy out on the road it can be difficult to gather all the information necessary to file.

That’s why we have your personal tax filing solution. Simply head to our sister company, ExpressExtension, to e-file Personal Tax Extension Form 4868. IRS Form 4868 is for individual and joint taxpayers to apply for an additional 6-months to file their personal income tax returns.

The process is easy, you spend a few minutes filling out Form 4868 and transmit it to the IRS by the April 18th deadline to instantly receive 6 extra months to file your return, pushing your deadline back to October 16th. Visit ExpressExtension.com for more information.

If you need to file while out on the road, no problem. Simply download the free 4868 app to your smartphone or tablet to e-file Personal Tax Extension Form 4868 at any time from any location.
