Can the IRS reject Form 2290?

Yes, the IRS can reject Form 2290 for a number of reasons. Don’t worry though, even if your Form gets rejected, you are able to resubmit it at no additional cost using ExpressTruckTax.

A Newly Created EIN

If you file Form 2290 with an EIN that has just been created there is a good chance your form will be rejected by the IRS. This is because it typically takes about 10-15 days for an EIN to be active in the IRS e-filing system. At no extra cost to you, you are able to transmit the form once a day until the IRS accepts it.

Wrong Business Name

Entering the wrong business name on Form 2290 is another reason it can get rejected. The business name needs to match the one registered with that EIN. If it does not match the only way to fix this mistake is to file a new Form 2290 with the correct business name.

Wrong Routing Number when you choose to pay with EFW (Electronic Funds Withdrawal)

When filing Form 2290 and selecting EFW (Electronic Funds Withdrawal) it is important to make sure both your routing and account numbers are correct. If you enter the wrong routing number on your Form 2290 it will be rejected immediately. The only way to correct this is to file a new Form 2290.
