The IRS typically rejects returns for one of three reasons:
The Business Name entered does not match with the EIN listed in the IRS database.
The Bank Routing Number entered in the Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW) payment option to pay your HVUT is invalid.
The return is a duplicate of a previously accepted return. Typically, this is because either the EIN or VIN is incorrect.

How to correct and IRS Form 2290
When you file with ExpressTruckTax, we will notify you as soon as your return is rejected or accepted. If it is rejected, we will also tell you why it was rejected and how to fix it. Retransmitting rejected returns is always free.
If your 2290 was rejected for either of the other reasons, simply click on the return that was rejected in your ExpressTruckTax account. Click on “Fix Errors & Resubmit”. The system will ask you a few questions to help you correct the error. Depending on the issue, you will be taken to the section that needs updating.
