Form 2290 is an IRS tax form for the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT). This form must be filed annually by drivers of vehicles weighing 55,000 pounds or more.
Why is Form 2290 Important?
Form 2290 is important because, after filing, drivers receive a Stamped Schedule 1, which is required to get a vehicle’s tags and registration.
Who Needs a Copy of the Stamped Schedule 1?
It is important that a driver carry a copy of their Stamped Schedule 1 in their truck in case they are pulled over. It is also important that the carriers and associations that drivers drive for get a copy of the Stamped Schedule 1 as well. These carriers and associations typically request copies of these Stamped Schedule 1’s to have for their records.
How can ExpressTruckTax benefit Carriers and Associations?
ExpressTruckTax offers a special feature that carriers and associations gain by becoming partners with ExpressTruckTax. ExpressTruckTax offers a helpful option for carriers and trucking associations where they are able to partner with ExpressTruckTax. Every affiliate that decides to partner with ExpressTruckTax gets its own Form 2290 filing portal where drivers can go to file.

The best part is that it is completely free to those who partner with ExpressTruckTax and open one of these portals and the portal will feature the carrier or association’s logo.

Each carrier or association that partners with ExpressTruckTax will be added to a list that drivers can go to when filing their Form 2290 and select the carrier or association they drive for. Upon selecting a carrier or association, the driver’s Stamped Schedule 1 will be sent directly to the carrier or association once Form 2290 is accepted.
