Things that you can’t correct once your Form 2290 is Filed!

tick possible

Hello there Truckers, over this article we are going to discuss about the changes that could possibly made over a Filed Form 2290. Almost on a daily basis, we receive calls from our users that they realized that something needs to be updated on their E-Filed Form 2290. Now we are going to list out what is possible & what’s not!

The 3 possible changes/corrections that could be made to a Filed 2290 are as follows via an Amended Form 2290:

  1. Increase in the Taxable Gross Weight of the Truck.
  2. Reporting a change on the Mileage limit of exemption.
  3. Reporting a change on the VIN
  • Increase in the Taxable Gross Weight of the Truck

This scenario occurs when the HVUT Filer has reported the vehicle’s gross weight to be minimum for example 55000 lbs, not realizing the fact that the term taxable gross weight always refers to the maximum weight of the truck ( Weight of the Tractor + Trailer+ Load). Now in order for them to be able to report an increase in the gross weight an Amended Form 2290 is filed to make the difference in tax due payment to the IRS as well as to receive another copy of schedule 1 for the corrected weight category.

  • Reporting a change on the Mileage limit of exemption

As most of you are aware on the desired mileage limit of exemption set by the Internal Revenue Service, it remains to be 5000 miles for Commercial based units & 7500 miles for Agricultural based vehicles.  When the subjected vehicle seems to exceed the desired mileage of exemption the vehicle turns out to be no longer exempt hence the tax due payment needs to be made to the IRS via an Amended 2290.

  • Reporting a change on the VIN

This is one of the most common interpretations involved during e-filing Form 2290. Unavoidable human errors leads to typographical errors on the VIN, which could later be updated via an Amended 2290 Form (VIN correction request). This process also lets the user to avoid an over payment of taxes.

Things that can’t be changed on a Filed 2290

Once the Form 2290 is successfully filed and when the IRS issues the digital watermark, the following changes can’t be reported online where the tax payer needs to contact the IRS toll free help line @ (866) 699-4096 to get the changes implemented over the phone.

  • Business name/DBA
  • Address, city, state & ZIP
  • Owners Name.

The Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 is due by March 31, 2019.

Hello there truckers, Over this article we are going to discuss about the near –term HVUT Form 2290 deadline for vehicles that are into service since February 2019. The Federal law states that the Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the month following the month of its first use. On that basis, March 31, 2019 happens to be the deadline for vehicles first used in February 2019.

Now before you are going to e-file your pro-rated Form 2290, you need to figure out whether your Truck is Taxable or Suspended. Basically there are 2 types of vehicles reported in the Form2290 as follows:

Taxable vehicle: If your truck would exceed 5000 miles for the Period beginning Feb 1st, 2019 through June 30th, 2019 then your truck is classified to be a Taxable vehicle, for which you are required to make a pro-rated tax due amount to the IRS for the above mentioned period. The tax amount varies among the gross weight of the vehicle.

Suspended vehicle: If your truck is expected to be used under 5000 miles for the Period beginning Feb 1st, 2019 through June 30th, 2019, then your truck is classified to be a Suspended vehicle, in other word an Exempt vehicle for which you’re not required to make any tax payment however, you need to report the vehicle over a Form 2290 under Suspended Vehicle to claim an exemption for the reported period.

Calculate the Taxable Gross Weight of your vehicle:

When we talk about the taxable gross weight, it includes the weight of the Tractor+ Trailer+ the maximum Load carried. Then enter the maximum carrying weight of the vehicle on our application during your E-Filing process so our inbuilt tax calculator would do the computation part by itself on your behalf.

Besides your Pro-rated Form 2290, Form 1120 is due by this month as Well.

The Form 1120 (officially the “U.S Corporate Income Tax Return”) is one of the IRS tax forms used by corporations (specifically, C corporations) to report their Income, Gains, losses, deductions, credits and to figure out their tax liability.

Wondering why we are even discussing about a different tax than Form 2290? Well we would like our Trucking community companies not to miss their business corporation taxes. The Tax Form 1120 is generally due by March 15th, every year. However for business that are involved in trucking are working restless to address the nation’s needs on time hence there are greater chances to miss the calculation part near the business tax deadline.

So you get a chance to claim an extension via Form 7004, It’s the form used to file for an automatic extension of time to file your business tax return for a partnership, a multiple member LLC filing as a partnership, a corporation, or s-corporation. The IRS indicates that, “Form 7004 does not extend the time for payment of tax.” Hence, you must pay taxes due (guesstimate) by your tax return due date, even if you file an extension application. You may also log on to the official IRS website to find the authorized e-file service provider to have your extensions filed successfully.

Now the bloodstream of our nation’s economy (Trucking) taxes HVUT Form 2290 is also due by the end of this month on a Pro-rated basis. By the federal law that states, that Form 2290 must be filed on a vehicle by the last day of the month following the month of its first use.

Did you know, Getting the 2290 Transferred from the Old to New is possible via Form 2290?

Hello there Truckers, most of you all would think how to transfer your 2290 from the old to new unit. Well here’s the answer, it’s simply done over a regular Form 2290. Generally when you e-file the Form 2290 you know that you always make the tax payment to the IRS full in advance.

So if you had sold a vehicle amidst a tax period for which you have made the tax payment full in advance. You may certainly claim a partial refund or an adjustment of tax credits to the replacement unit. If you had not bought any replacement unit versus the sold vehicle you may simply opt for a tax refund which is done by filing the Form 8849 Schedule 6 (Claim for refund of excise taxes). Upon a successful submission of your claim request, takes 21 business days before the IRS could mail you the refund check.

On the other hand, if you had purchased a replacement unit versus the sold vehicle, you may go ahead and claim a partial credit carryover towards the Pro-rated tax due amount of the new replacement unit. By this way, you would be able to nullify your tax due (In case of same month remains in common for both sold & newly acquired unit) & pay the difference in excess post adjustment (In case of same month does not remains in common for both sold & newly acquired unit).

However, the vehicle that was sold would never reflect over your copy of Schedule 1 as the IRS systems would only reflect taxable units and suspended/exempt units determined based on the desired mileage use of the vehicles. Whereas vehicles reported under credit sections would not show up on the actual stamped version of Schedule 1 although it does remain accountable for your credit adjustment in the backend.

We ensure zero tolerance towards any errors that might occur whilst the e-filing process. The best part of e-filing is the turnaround time where it just takes few minutes before receiving the IRS digital watermarked copy of schedule 1 back in your e-mail.
