Truck Zone - An Exclusive ExpressTruckTax Feature

0
The Truck Zone allows you to enter and store information for hundreds to thousands of Heavy Vehicles in one place. It's like your digital garage. This exclusive feature gives you the ability to file, edit, amend, and sort your entire fleet in one place. The days of changing your vehicle's information one at a time are over. No more going from place to place, trying to remember what you did on one page and transposing it somewhere else. Consolidate your work and enjoy efficiency.

If you want to file an IRS Form 2290 for 10 trucks,  with this feature you can simply select the 10 trucks that need to be filed and E-File them in minutes. When you want search for a specific schedule 1 either by trucks or unit numbers or drivers, you can come to the Truck Zone and enter the criteria you want and find the one you need.

We have a feature where you can upload a Schedule 1 (obtained by postal mail or done from other providers) that is associated with a particular VIN(s) and enter the other information like First used month, Tax year, Type of Return (2290, VIN correction or amendment) and who has paid for the schedule 1. This way there will just one report to look for the schedule 1's.

We always strive to make the program better and easier for our customers to use, and this new feature allows you to save your vehicle information, and for your next return you will be able to select vehicles from the "Truck Zone" with just a few clicks.

E-File Form 2290 for Vehicles First Used in December

0

The filing period is now open to file Heavy Vehicle Use Taxes for vehicles first used in December. When a new vehicle is placed in service, the Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the following month. If you first placed your vehicle on the road anytime in December, you can file your Form 2290 anytime between now and January 31, 2014. If a vehicle was used during any part of a month, the tax will be calculated for that month as a whole. For example, if a vehicle was used on December 25th, it will be taxed as though it was used the entire month.

The Heavy Vehicle Tax Year runs from July 1 through June 30 of the following year. When a vehicle is first placed on the road at any time during the tax year, the tax will be prorated based on the number of months the vehicle will have been used during the tax year. So for vehicles that were placed in service during the month of December will need to file HVUT using the Form 2290 by January 31, and the tax will be based on 7 months, instead of the full year. For vehicles first used in January, the tax will be based on 6 months and so on.

While the deadline is the last day of the following month, you may need to file your Form 2290 before the deadline in order to get or renew your IRP plates.  Many states require proof that your 2290 was filed before they will issue or renew your plates.

ExpressTruckTax.com allows you to fill out your IRS Form 2290 online and send it to the IRS electronically! This way you can get a stamped schedule 1 in about 10 minutes. ExpressTruckTax is authorized by the IRS to E-File Form 2290. The taxpayer will then receive the Schedule 1 via email or fax as soon as the IRS processes the form. The form will then be watermarked by the IRS instead of an actual physical stamp. Be sure to get this filed today to avoid possible IRS penalties.

To E-File the Form 2290 online now, go to ExpressTruckTax.com or contact our Express Tax Support Center in Rock Hill, SC at 704-234-6005 or email us at support@ExpressTruckTax.com.  We have Spanish Support too!
