IRS E-Filing System is Back Up (IRS Form 2290)

As some of you may have noticed, the IRS E-Filing System was down from late December until early January for anyone who needed to file the Form 2290 online. This was due to the yearly maintenance the IRS performs for its servers at the end of each year. If anyone submitted an IRS Form 2290 for Heavy Vehicle Use Taxes online during this time period through the return was placed on hold until Monday, January 9, 2012. The returns have now gone through to the IRS and if anyone has new returns that need to be filed, they will not have to endure the wait that they would have had if they filed in late December.
Each person who files the IRS Form 2290 with the IRS through Express Truck Tax will receive Free Fax and Email Notifications to let them know when the Schedule 1 is ready. The taxpayer also has a variety of options if they would like to receive optional Text Message reminders as well. These Reminders can also notify your contracting or leasing company as well to let them know that a payment has been made. There is no additional cost to have the information sent directly to a contracting or leasing company.
The IRS payment can be made by 4 methods: Electronic Funds Withdrawal, EFTPS, Check, or Money Order. The IRS does not accept Credit Cards for the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Payment. (The filing fees imposed by Express Truck Tax can be paid by Credit Card if you wish)
To pay by Electronic Funds Withdrawal, the IRS will need a bank account and routing number. For EFTPS, the taxpayer would need to have already setup an account within the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System. In order to pay by Check or Money Order, the form can still be filed instantly online, and a Payment Voucher can be printed and mailed to the IRS. The last page of the Form 2290 is a 2290-V (or payment voucher).
Filing this form online only takes a few minutes and you will receive a stamped Schedule 1 within minutes of filing this form online with Express Truck Tax. Although the deadline is approaching, you will still be able to E-File your Form 2290 through our service anytime.
