What is the Five-Digit Pin?

In order to transmit Form 2290 a Personal Identification Number (PIN) must be entered before transmission. This number is used to e-sign Form 2290 and is used as proof that you are not a robot similar to a captcha or a check box saying you are not a robot. This PIN also serves as your e-signature for your Form 2290. When inputting this PIN, you are able to enter any five digits except all zeros. You do not need to remember this PIN number for the future and the number can be different for different returns. 

What is Form 2290?

Form 2290 is an IRS tax form for the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) that has to be filed by drivers of vehicles weighing 55,000 pounds or more. Although the deadline to file has passed, you can still file Form 2290 with minor penalties if you file soon or if you are putting a truck on the road for the first time. When filing Form 2290 with ExpressTruckTax, there are several steps that are involved.

What is Needed for Form 2290?

First, you need to enter your business information. This includes your business name, address, and Employer Identification Number (EIN). Then you will need to enter your vehicle information. This includes the vehicle’s make, model, Taxable Gross Weight, and Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). If you have any credit vehicles you need to claim, you will need to list them next. Once all of this information is entered, you will then need to select your payment method. You are able to choose credit or debit card, Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW), EFTPS, or check or money order. When selecting a credit or debit card, you can either choose to pay your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax directly through ExpressTruckTax alongside your filing fee, or you can choose to pay it through a third-party payment processor.
