We hope you’re enjoying GATS, the Great American Trucking Show. There’s no party like the trucking one in Dallas, Texas! Just keep in mind that your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax HVUT Form 2290 is due next Thursday on August 31st.
Now that doesn’t have to ruin your good time because you can actually file your Form 2290 with the ExpressTruckTax app while you’re at GATS and the entire process only takes a few minutes to complete. You can file while you wait in line for food, while judges vote on show truck winners, or simply while you sit down to take a break.
How To File Form 2290 With The ExpressTruckTax App?
First, you will download the app to your smartphone or tablet and create a free ExpressTruckTax account with your email address. Then you can start the e-filing process which only takes about five minutes to complete.
You will begin the filing process by entering your business information such as the name, address, and your EIN (Employer Identification Number). If you’re a sole proprietor you can use your personal information, but you still need an EIN. Your Social Security Number will not work in place of your EIN.
Then you will select your tax year and first use month. The current HVUT tax period began on July 1, 2017 and will end on June 31, 2018. Form 2990 is due based off of your first use month, and the deadline is due the last day of the month following the first use month. Most truckers use their trucks in July, making it their first use month, so their Form 2290 is due on August 31st.
Next, you will enter your vehicle information, including the taxable gross weight and VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). Be sure to select if your vehicles were used for any special purposes such as agricultural use or logging because those vehicles are subject to lower tax rate. Also, remember that you’re required to include your suspended vehicles on your Form 2290.
After that, ExpressTruckTax will automatically calculate the amount of HVUT for you, so don’t worry about having to handle any complicated calculations yourself. You can pay the amount you owe to the IRS through direct debit or electronic funds withdrawal, EFTPS, or check or money order.
Then you will be presented with a summary of your information so you can make sure you entered everything correctly. Make sure your VIN, business information, and EIN were entered correctly. ExpresstruckTax will also perform an internal audit on your form to catch any basic errors.
Finally, your filing process is complete and you can sign your form with a 5-digit code of your choice at the bottom of the page to transmit it directly to the IRS. Then within about 15 minutes, you will receive a copy of your stamped Schedule 1 via email.
