Time is ticking! as the Form 2290 deadline Aug.31 fast approaches

Form 2290 for the tax year 2020 is due by Aug.31

Hello there dear truckers! Hope you’re all safe and sound. We are into the last phase of filing your taxes as we just have a week’s time before the deadline for your form 2290. As you know the form 2290’s are due by July and payable until august 31 every year. While most of you have filed your tax returns yet there are many who hasn’t filed yet. We would like to keep you posted about this as we are nearing the deadline and any filings done after august are subjected to penalties from the IRS.

Most of you have a common question asking that why should you renew now as your tag renewals are later this year and aren’t we supposed to do it only then? Well, that’s not how it works. Form 2290’s are always from July 1 to June 30 the following year and the taxes are to be paid upfront for the whole tax year. And how will the taxes be calculated? It depends on miles that you do in a tax year and the total gross weight of your vehicle {tractor + trailer + the max capacity that you can haul}. For a vehicle to qualify under a taxable category it should do more than 5000 miles in a tax year and the minimum gross weight should be 55000 lbs and above.

Stay safe!                       

Stay strong for this pandemic will be long gone.

COVID-19 has brought great sadness in the history of mankind, a strong scar to always be remembered. Yet amidst of all these commotions goodness shines bright giving us hope and endurance to face every boulder in our way. Staying strong and positive is key to overcome this pandemic disease as signs of goodwill is what we see daily across the nation. People are instructed to follow social distancing protocols, staying indoors and away from loved ones to avoid the spread of COVID-19. These measures have caused a higher level of panic and anxiety for Americans.

Food is one of the important concerns for our truckers who are working day and night to meet our necessities. Bill Garrett, senior vice president of operations for McDonald’s, discussed the new ordering system and pledged to support U.S. truckers as they deliver needed goods during the COVID-19 pandemic. Though most of the diners are closed, many restaurants in order to stay in business have closed the dining sections and keep take out available. But driving a truck through a drive-in is not practical and hence the new implementation of food ordering systems for our truckers. McDonald’s is encouraging truckers to use the following procedures:

  • Use McDonald’s Mobile Order & Pay app, when you arrive at the restaurant
  • Select Curbside Service and walk to the designated Trucker curbside sign on the sidewalk outside our designated door
  • Complete your order by entering the appropriate Trucker curbside number and we’ll bring your order to you at the designated door as soon as it’s ready

“As the world continues to address the quickly changing landscape, we are in this together with you, our valued friends in the trucking and transportation industry. Thank you for everything you are doing to keep essential parts of our economy going,” said Garrett.

A fire department located in 45th Street in Little Rock, AR have opened up their doors to feed the truckers at no cost. The area near the facility has ample amount of space to park and the area around it has quite a bit of 18 wheeler traffic due to the industrial park. To feed the ones who feed us is the motive for this good gesture.

The Missouri Department of Transportation announced a free, temporary overweight permit that allows haulers to transport up to 100,000 pounds on any Missouri highway through April 30 to assist in the critical flow of essential goods during the COVID-19 crisis, including interstates, as long as certain criteria are met:

  • A copy of the special permit and a bill of lading must be in the possession of the operator of the overweight vehicle during its operation and shall be produced for inspection upon request to any Missouri law enforcement official and/or any MoDOT employee.
  • The load must carry supplies and/or equipment in the direct effort to prevent, contain, mitigate and treat the effects of the COVID-19 virus. This includes shipments of livestock, poultry, feed and fuels. Any fuels being transported can be hauled at 100,000 lbs. or up to the manufacturer’s specifications of the tank type being operated, whichever results in the lower weight.
  • Undertaking movement is evidence that both the owner and operator of the equipment agree to abide by the conditions of the special permit and all other non-exempted requirements for overweight loads.
  • Carriers may haul up to 100,000 lbs. gross weight on semi-trailer configurations with five or more axles. The axles must meet the minimum distance requirement stated in the special permit. Carriers using trucks or semi-trailers with fewer axles are allowed to haul up to an additional 10% heavier than licensed weight.
  • Carriers and vehicle operators must obey all structure postings and size and weight restrictions.
  • Violation of any of the conditions of the special permit will void the permit and subject the owner and operator to penalty.

“We are trying to help make the movement of needed goods more efficient,” said MoDOT Director Patrick McKenna.

The Transportation training company Instructional Technologies Inc. (ITI) is offering a free online course for drivers on COVID-19 safety. COVID-19: What Drivers Need To Know helps drivers understand the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, how it could affect their work and safety, and steps to keep themselves and others safe.
