The Form 2290 tax season is here and the deadline is only a few weeks away! The deadline to file for 2021-22 is August 31st, 2021.
When filing your Form 2290, it’s important to have all of your information together and ready to go! In order for your Form 2290 to be accepted by the IRS, all of your information must be correct.
It is especially important that, when you are filing, your VIN is correct. Checking your VIN before you file will reduce the possibility of having an incorrect VIN on your Schedule 1, as well as make the filing process simpler.
What Is A VIN?
A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is a unique number assigned to your truck and is issued by the United States Department of Transportation. It’s important to note that two different trucks will never have the same code.
To find your vehicle’s VIN, you can find it stated in the registration, title documents, or on the actual vehicle.
When you file your Form 2290, the IRS requires the VIN of each vehicle so the stamped Schedule 1 contains the code for each vehicle.
How Do I Check My VIN?
ExpressTruckTax offers a free VIN checker to all of their clients. The Form 2290 VIN checker is an exclusive feature that helps to ensure the VIN entered is correct when you are e-filing.
Ensuring that your VIN is validated before filing reduces the need of having to file an amendment to fix the VIN on your stamped Schedule 1. Every vehicle that is used during the tax period needs to have it’s unique VIN number on a stamped Schedule 1, which proves that the Form 2290 was filed.
Why Do you need to check your VIN?
The IRS typically does not reject a Form 2290 that contains the wrong VIN, but if the VIN is incorrect, you will have to file a VIN correction amendment to get the VIN changed on your stamped Schedule 1.
As a result of this, it saves you time and money to ensure that your VIN is correct before you submit your form to the IRS.
It’s also a service provided at no additional cost by ExpressTruckTax, so what do you have to lose?!
