IRS Shuts Down For MEF Maintenance

Attention Tax filers, we have an update for you.

Taxpayers who file form 2290 via Efile should stay alert, as IRS is shutdown for MEF (Modernized Efile System). MEF is the online system through, which TruckDues.com submits our IRS tax form return. The shutdown is already on and IRS would be reopening sometime in the mid of January.

The shutdown is a routine and takes place every year; however, that does not mean, you cannot file your tax return.

  • If you are using TruckDues.com, you will be able to e-file and submit your tax return to IRS; however, your submitted form 2290 would be kept on hold till IRS opens its gateways for accepting the tax return.
  • And that means, during the course of shutdown, IRS would not be issuing the schedule 1 copy either. You will receive the acknowledgement receipt once IRS starts accepting returns.

However, to Efile form 2290, you need to following documents:

  • EIN (Employee Identification Number)
  • VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)
  • Taxable Gross weight of the vehicle(s)
  • Purchase date and date of first use on the highway
  • If the vehicle is sold, details like date of selling, VIN and whom the vehicle was sold are required.

We know you run the show and for some reason, you are not able to file. We would do it on your behalf and you will receive the schedule 1 copy once IRS opens its gateway for accepting the tax return.

Form 2290 is also known as Heavy Vehicle Used Tax paid by truckers and owner operators driving heavy rigs weighing more than 55,000 pounds. It is believed that these heavy vehicles cause more damage and these taxes are directly funded to the maintenance of the highways and bridges across the nation.

Guide for Filing Credit Vehicles Through TruckDues.com

Christmas being round the corner, it’s upgrade time for truckers from old rigs to new business names. With 2015 dropping into our calendar in a while, our Tax Experts are answering lot of questions about transferring schedule 1 from previously filed truck to new ones, transitioning to a new business, a new business name but with the same truck or a different EIN altogether.

And there are set of truckers and owner operators sell or lose their respective trucks and decide to exit the transportation biz altogether. If you are leaving the business mid-tax year, you can get a part of your hard-earned HVUT money back. Keep reading to follow the procedures.

We have framed a guide to get you going with the scenarios. Let be a trade-in shuffle or changing your business or EIN, we will tell you how to get your schedule 1 copy sorted and get your money back, too.

“Transferring” a Vehicle (A-K-A: Credit Vehicles)

  • If you purchased a new truck mid-tax year, and your previous truck was sold, stolen, or destroyed, then you can get a new stamped Schedule 1 without paying extra tax. Many refer to this as “transferring,” but that’s not exactly how it works with the IRS.
  • Here’s why it’s not really a transfer per se. Schedule 1 once filed for a vehicle, cannot be transferred to the next. However, you can effectively file your HVUT and get a new stamped Schedule 1, without paying any extra tax.

And you might ask, why you do need file efile form 2290 for the new vehicle and add a credit vehicle for the same with the information of the previous vehicle.

  • When you are adding a credit for the vehicle, you will receive a prorated tax credit for the remaining months of the tax year through July 1st.
  • In addition, when you are efiling form 2290 with a credit vehicle, IRS would prorate the credit for the sold vehicle based on the first month of new vehicle. The first month is the month in which you purchased the new vehicle.
  • Usually, IRS prorates the tax on monthly basis not daily. And that means, if you have bought your vehicle at the beginning of the month, even on the very first day, IRS would charge you tax for the entire month, for the old one as well as for the new.
  • Do note form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the month followed by the month in, which the “transfer” has occurred. This means, if you have switched vehicles in the month of November, you need to file by December 31st 2014.
  • However, this transfer process (E-filing a 2290 with a credit vehicle) will only work if the business name and EIN remain the same. If they’re different, see the instructions below.

However, this is not the end. We have two more topics to discuss on, change of business name and sold, lost, or destroyed vehicle without replacement. We shall discuss the same in the next blog. Till then keep reading the previously pinned blogs and info on the site. Also, if you have taken your vehicle out for the first time in the month of November, then you are liable to file and report form 2290 online through TruckDues.com by the end of December.

Meantime, if you have any questions or looking forward for assistance, feel free to ping, call or email our Tax Experts at support@truckdues.com or simply call to (347) 515 – 2290

Filing Taxes: An Overview

So let’s get started, first, you need to classify your vehicle based upon the category mentioned in the tabular column. If you are filing prorated taxes for your vehicle, then you need to calculate for the months your filing. Say, if October you took your vehicle on the highway for the first time, this November 30th is the last date to file your return depending upon the taxable weight. If your vehicle used only for logging and other forestry purpose, the tax rate would differ.

Also, if you are looking forward for an easiest method to get your taxes paid to IRS, you should try a hand with efiling form 2290 through an authentic and authorized online filing service provider: TruckDues.com.

However, if you are trying to take tax filing manually, you would land up spending lot of your time and energy, involving calculations to be done manually, and eventually, there would be errors to be corrected. In short, it is a messy work to be handled manually. Rather, efiling is the better option.

The best part about efiling is you don’t have to do anything manually other than logging in through your registered account and add in your details about your vehicle. Simply check on “Start A New Return”. Click on Heavy Vehicle Used Tax and fill in the details requested by the application. As you are typing, your info related to your vehicle, you will see your calculated taxes in the next slide in seconds. Also, add this point, the calculations done by our inbuilt application is the most accurate result, which will make you visit TruckDues.com.

Once the return is prepared, you can transmit it to IRS yourself and receive your schedule 1 copy in minutes. You can request for a Text Alert or Fax copy depending upon the availability.

On a conclusive note, when we are growing technically, why do we have to be dependent on paper and pen to deal with tax? Come to TruckDues.com and experience anew.
