The Most Common Form 2290 Deadline Filing Questions

The Form 2290 deadline is coming on August 31! Here are the most common questions we get

Hey, it’s Amber from ExpressTruckTax, and I cannot believe that it is already August. It seems like the days are flying by, and kids are already going back to school. It’s just craziness. Half of the office here is ready for fall and winter, and I am clinging to every second of summer that I can get. So, um, happy August!

With August comes, are you ready for it, the 2290 deadline? I know August 31st is coming, and just like the days are going really fast, this month will fly. And before you know it, it will be the deadline. Some common questions that we are getting right now are, “I made a mistake,” and again, there are several types of mistakes that can be made when you’re filing the 2290.

ExpressTruckTax has put a lot of return summaries, check your information, make sure it’s correct before you transmit to try to avoid mistakes. However, if you make a mistake, there are ways to fix most mistakes. Some mistakes cannot be fixed, and you have to call the IRS, which is a super big bummer.

But most mistakes, like a VIN correction, changing the name or the address, the wrong weight—those corrections can be made directly through your ExpressTruckTax account. When you go to Express Truck Tax, if you’re on a computer, you would just start a new return, and then there’s the 2290 amendments box over on the left that you need to select.

Then you would select which correction you need to make, which amendment you need to make, and then you transmit the return to the IRS. And then within, again, just a couple of minutes, you get that stamped Schedule 1 back with whatever the new VIN number or the correct weight.

You can also do, you know, let’s say you accidentally filed as a suspended vehicle, which is a category W. You can also do an amendment to take that to a taxable vehicle. So there’s lots of different things that you can do in your ExpressTruckTax account.
