You only have until December 16 to transition your full fleet to ELDs

While FMCSA still in Phase 2 of ELD Implementation, December 16, 2019, is a critical date as the AOBRD grandfather provision expires. This provision allows fleets that had AOBRDs installed in their trucks prior to December 18, 2017, to continue using AOBRDs for two years following the ELD Compliance Date. Beginning December 16, 2019, motor carriers and drivers subject to the ELD rule must use self-certified ELDs that are registered with FMCSA.

The ELD rule applies to motor carriers and drivers who are currently required to keep records of duty service (RODS) under the hours-of-service (HOS) regulations. Drivers who use the time card exception, and don’t keep paper RODs, will not be required to use ELDs. The following drivers may keep paper RODS:

  • Drivers who keep RODS no more than 8 days during any 30-day period.
  • Driveaway-towaway drivers (transporting a vehicle for sale, lease, or repair), provided the vehicle driven is part of the shipment or the vehicle being transported is a motor home or recreational vehicle trailer.
  • Drivers of vehicles manufactured before model year 2000.

However, a carrier can choose to use an ELD, even if it is not required.

How to report an Increase in the Taxable Gross weight on your 2290?

Hello there truckers, over this article we are going to discuss on how to go about reporting an increase in the Gross weight of your truck. We on daily basis receive calls from our clients required to file an amended 2290 to correct the mistake occurred on their taxable gross weight of the vehicle. Now refers to this article to get a clear picture on this scenario.

Basically the Form 2290 is known to be the Heavy Highway vehicle used tax return which is filed on vehicles which possess a minimum gross weight of 55000 lbs or more and if the same truck is been used over the public highway for commercial purposes.

Having said that 55,000 is the minimum weight required to be able to qualify for a Heavy Vehicle however it must not be assumed to the maximum weight of a truck, Heavy trucks tonnage index refers to weights over a 100,000 lbs easy. So, when there is a requirement for a change of the gross weight of the vehicle, all you need is an amended 2290 Form.

By filing an amendment you’d only make the difference in the tax due payment in accordance to the increase in the gross weight in lbs. As there is a $22 increase versus an increase of every 1000 lbs. By filing the amended Form 2290, you would receive a new copy of schedule 1 with a digital watermarked indicating e-filed with the date stamp.

E-File your HVUT Form 2290 via www.truckdues.com to receive the IRS digital watermarked copy of schedule 1 back in your e-mail within minutes after you e-file. Reach us back for any further assistance over the following mediums:

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.

You may also log on to the official IRS website to find the authorized e-file service provider to have your extensions filed successfully.
