Mistakes happen all the time, especially when entering a VIN on the Form 2290. ExpressTruckTax makes it easy to correct a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) with our system. In order to file a VIN correction, taxpayers simply need to file an IRS 2290 Amendment. Typically the IRS processing time is the same as a standard 2290 form.


The process is simple.  If you already have an account with us, you will click the green 'Create New Return' button from the 'Dashboard' page inside your account. Once you click this button, you will choose 2290 Amendment and then select the VIN correction option. The system will then walk you through the VIN correction filing process.

EIN Is REQUIRED to File Form 2290

0
If you are filing Form 2290 for Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT), you must have an EIN to file the return. The IRS does not accept Social Security Numbers for the Form 2290. An EIN is an Employer Identification Number, also known as a Federal Tax Identification Number, and can be used to verify a business entity.

If you do not have an EIN, you can apply for one online through the IRS website or if you don’t have the time or unable to get to a computer, you can have a service provider, like Truck Services of North America to do it for you.

NOTE: Remember, for vehicles first used in December, the due date to file your Form 2290 is January 31, 2014. While you can get your EIN immediately, it can take the IRS up to 10 business days to update new EINs into their system; so you will want to get your EIN today to ensure it is in the system by the deadline!

Once your EIN is in the IRS system or if you already have one, you can file your Form 2290 return and receive your Stamped Schedule 1 within minutes at ExpressTruckTax. E-File your Form 2290 online now, at 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!

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!
