How to File IRS Form 2290?
Using your email address and password, you will need to create a free ExpressTruckTax account.
When you are ready to start the Form 2290 filing process with ExpressTruckTax, you will click the orange ‘Start New Return’ button and enter the basic information for your trucking business (Name, address, and EIN).
You will enter your tax year and your vehicle’s first used month. ExpressTruckTax Form 2290 filing is based on your vehicles first used month and is due the last day of the month following when it is was first used.
For example: If you first used your vehicle in July, your IRS Form 2290 will be due August 31, 2018. The current tax period runs from July 1st, 2018 until June 30th, 2019. Your current schedule 1 for the 2017-2018 season expired on June 30th, 2018. You will need to file with ExpressTruckTax before the 2290 due date to ensure your information is accepted by the IRS.
Enter your vehicle information including the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and taxable gross weight. You will need to select if your vehicle was used specifically for logging or agricultural purposes. If so you will be granted a break on your taxes or be exempt. However, you will still need to file to receive your stamped Schedule 1. You will also need to indicate if your vehicle is suspended.
ExpressTruckTax will then calculate the tax amount you owe the IRS. Once you have this amount you can then pick from one of the following payment options: Pay 2290 with credit card, debit, direct debit, electronic funds withdrawal, EFTPS, check, or money order.
ExpressTruckTax will then give you the ability to review all your information and make any corrections. Our system will perform an instant internal audit to ensure error-free filing; however, we highly suggest that you double check your VIN number at this time as it is the number one reason for HVUT rejection.
Once any and all corrections have been made, you will then transmit your form directly to the IRS. You will enter a 5-digit code of your choice at the bottom of your form to electronically sign and transmit.
Sit back and relax! You will receive your stamped Schedule 1 in just a matter of minutes, and you will be set until 2019.
