Why E-filing is better than Traditional paper Filing?

Go greenWelcome Back! You have now landed at the right place in case you have been wondering why everyone’s talking laurels about e-filing over the conventional paper filing. Evidently, you would follow the “go green” movement immediately; without wasting any paper products & derivatives of little left trees that we love.

The ability to file your tax returns round the clock throughout the week right at your desk at home; makes our lives easy & comfortable. The speed of the entire tax return process dramatically increases with e-filing over the conventional paper method due to the advanced Internet capabilities thus saving you money and energy worked out on postage/fax/courier/delivery charges, which instead could be used for other valuable things.

In addition to its delicacy, you receive the IRS watermarked copy of Schedule 1 copy in no time. Having said that, you might wonder how safe is this by the way? Well, your data would remain over secured servers via Internet hence it is invisible to the naked eye after a few clicks hence there is no chances of breach. Continue reading

Can you believe it’s just a couple of days away? Yeah it’s Thanksgiving, the time when families come together despite their differences eat, feel & celebrate gratitude for the good things in life. This is a day of festivity; family reunions and lavish feasts including dishes like roasted turkeys, Cranberry sauce, Corns. Potatoes and Pumpkin pie are included in the Thanksgiving meal.

Gratitude is not simply something that we externally share with others; it is an attitude that we live with every day.  A lack of gratitude is often at the root of a variety of the ills that plague relationships. For example, when a boss never thanks his employees for what they do, the employees start to resent both him and their job which would cause an avalanche of damage on performance on either ends.

Here’s What Happens When You Don’t File Form 2290 On Time

Exceptions are few; however, heavy vehicle with a gross weight of 55,000 lbs and more and using the public highways need to pay the tax as per the Federal regulations. And this becomes mandatory for the owner operators and truckers to file form 2290. We are going to talk about the scenarios you would face if you don’t file form 2290 for your taxable heavy highway vehicle.

Following are the scenarios, which are applicable with form 2290:

  • What if you don’t file Form 2290
  • Not signing the return
  • Claiming refund of Heavy Vehicle Use Tax already paid
  • Sale of vehicle
  • Getting stamped Schedule 1 on short notice

What If I Don’t File Form 2290:

As per the law, if you are late in filing your taxes, you are liable to pay penalties for failing to file the tax 2290 return on time. False filing or fraudulent returns will be penalized. Other than penalties, there will be interest charges against the delay of payment.  Also in case of filing the return after the due date, you need to attach a detailed explanation for the delay with the valid reason.

Not Signing The Return:

If in case, the return is submitted without signing, the return will be sent back to you for signing. It is important to note that, unsigned return will be considered as filed return.

Claim A Refund On Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Already Paid:

If your taxable heavy vehicle is destroyed, stolen, or sold before June 1 or for one that was used 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles), a refund for tax paid can be claimed on the subsequent Form 2290 filed. Form 8849 – Schedule 6 can also be used to claim the refund.

Do note, till the end of HVUT tax period, form 8849 cannot be filed. For example, tax is paid for the period July 1, 2009, through June 31, 2010, for a vehicle used 5,000 miles or less during the period, a refund on Form 2290 (or refund on Form 8849) cannot be claimed until after June 30, 2010.

Sale Of Vehicle:

In case a vehicle was sold, the taxpayer who filed the return and paid the tax gets the credit.
