Anyone who is filing a return with 25 or more vehicles is required to file electronically, but the IRS is encouraging everyone to do so. Through an IRS Authorized E-File Provider, like ExpressTruckTax.com, you can file your Form 2290, pay your HVUT taxes owed to the IRS and receive your Stamped Schedule 1 within minutes. When you E-File your Form 2290 for Heavy Vehicle Use Tax, it will save you time and you will have an online record of previous year’s filings.
The entire process only takes a few minutes, including getting your Schedule 1 back. No more manually filling out paper returns and mailing them in and waiting to receive your Schedule 1 back in the mail, or taking into the IRS field office only to stand in line, often times for hours. When you E-File you avoid all of that and once you create your account and file your return, it is even easier for future years, because you will not have to reenter all the information; it will already be in the system.
It is your responsibility to know when and if you have to file. You must file Form 2290 and Schedule 1 for the tax period beginning on July 1, 2012, and ending on June 30, 2013, if a taxable highway motor vehicle (defined below) is registered, or required to be registered, in your name under state, District of Columbia, Canadian, or Mexican law at the time of its first use during the period and the vehicle has a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more.
The deadline is August 31, 2012, so file now. The IRS will shut down their E-Filing system on at 1pm August 31, 2012 for maintenance over the Labor Day Holiday Weekend. The E-Filing system will resume on at noon on Tuesday, September 4, 2012. Since it will only take minutes, there is no need to put it off until the last minute.
