Your Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 deadline is just a couple of weeks away!

Hey there truckers, No wonder misconception might arise within yourself due to our repeated HVUT deadline alerts. We are not trying to mock you with repeated deadline alerts. Federal law states that HVUT Form 2290 must be filed on a Vehicle by the last day of the month following the month of its first use.

Hence, this article about the HVUT deadline must concern you only if you had purchased/re-purchased any truck and that’s being used over the road since Sep 2019, whereby you are required to E-File & pay the HVUT to the IRS on or before 10/31/2019.

Failure to E-file the Form 2290 before the deadline might end up in owing the IRS a penalty for late in filing & payment. This penalties might fluctuate between 3 to 5% of the overall tax due owed on your vehicle and the worst part is the interest will accumulate on daily basis as long as you prolong the lateness beyond the desired deadline assuming it as an extension. In the first place we would like to make our dear truckers aware that there has been no extensions for Form 2290.

There are certain things to remember to do a perfect tax filing. So here are some seeds of wisdom to keep in mind while filing you tax returns

What is Form 2290? For all the first time filers this is the form that is used to report you heavy vehicle and pay the taxes. On submission of this form you would receive a watermarked Schedule-1 stamp copy which would serve as proof of filing as well as a proof to report your Vehicle to the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicle) for new trucks as well as renewal of your old trucks

All you need to have is the VIN number a valid EIN number (more than 15 days since applied) and you good to go. These two things are to be entered correctly to avoid rejections or corrections which would incur you to spend more

How to determine whether you vehicle is taxable? Well do you have a heavy vehicle and have plans to operate over 5,000 miles (7,500 for agricultural vehicles) and the total Gross weight (Sum of Tractor, load and trailer weights) is 55,000 lbs or more? Then your vehicle is subjected to Federal taxes. The taxes are paid in advance for the whole year. Any heavy vehicles under the above mentioned are considered to be “Suspended Vehicles” meaning it’s exempt from taxes.

VIN Number: The VIN number or The Vehicle Identification Number is a unique code given to every vehicle which is of 17 Digit Alpha- Numeric characters. No two VIN numbers for any vehicles are of same. This is used to identify a specific vehicle in case of tax reporting or theft of vehicle.

The VIN number doesn’t contain the Characters such as “I, O & Q” in it. So while filing your tax returns make sure you keep this in mind. Else you might have to correct the form right away to evade tax penalties.

And the most common step which some users fail to do it transmit the return to the IRS. Users normally file the tax returns pay the service free and move till the payment conformation page. But you have to go all the way till the last page after service fee payment where you could see a Red Box saying “Transmit to IRS”. Click that red button and your returns will be transmitted instantly and you will receive the Schedule-1 copy with stamped water mark on it indicating the filing was done successfully to your registered email within 30 minutes

So these are all the small things that you need to be aware of while filing your tax returns. So why wait you also have an option to pre-file your tax returns by June and receive the Schedule-1 copy by the first week of July. Stay ahead of all the 3.5 million truckers across the nation.

Let’s do the 2290 basics…

The tax filing period is just a couple of weeks away and it’s a good time to know about the basics for a better understanding of Form 2290 tax filing. Generally the taxes are due by the month of July and payable until the last day of August. Here are some of the basic information that you need to know regarding the tax returns

So what is a Form 2290 and what type of vehicles falls under taxable vehicle category?

Form 2290 is used to report the heavy vehicle for tax purposes. Any vehicle which has a Gross weight of 55,000 lbs or above and operated on the highway it is liable for taxes. The Gross weight of the vehicle is the sum of the tractor, load and the trailer. Depending on the gross weight of the vehicle the tax amount varies accordingly.

What are the options of filing the taxes?

There are two major types or medium of filing taxes 1. Paper filing, 2. E-filing

The Paper filing is the conventional way of filing your taxes, where the tax payers should report the vehicle by walking directly into the IRS office and manually fill out the form and calculate the taxes, which is a tedious process and chances of wrong calculation and data entry is high.

E-filing is rather an easy option while compared to paper filing. It’s easy, accurate and less time consuming work and the turnaround time to receive a schedule-1 watermark copy with 30 min’s of time. Here at truckdues.com you just need to key in the business details, sit back and let the website do the math for you with the best technology and accurate calculation, there is almost zero chances of error.

Are there any tax exceptions?

Yes, there are some exceptions. Based on the mileage of your vehicle, If your vehicle Mileage is under 5,000 miles (7,500 for agricultural vehicles) the vehicles are considered to be tax exempted. You just have to report the vehicle under suspended vehicles category for tax exemptions. However if your vehicle crosses the mileage limit during the tax period you will be liable to pay taxes by filing and amendment to evade penalties.

How are the taxes calculated?

As mentioned before it’s based on the gross weight of the vehicle and also the First month of use. If you have bought a vehicle in the mid of the tax year (1st July to 30th June) the taxes will be calculated based on the first month of use till June 30th along with the gross weight of the vehicle, hence there is no need to pay for the whole year but pay for the months used on road.

What is Schedule-1?

Upon successful filing of your tax return, The IRS will send a watermarked proof of filing. This will also serve as a valid proof while registering your vehicle with the local DMV (Dept. of Motor vehicle).   

Filing period

Normally the tax period is from 1st July to 30th June. The taxes are to be paid for the whole year upfront before the last day of August. What if you can file your taxes prior to the tax due date? Well truck dues has an option for that as well. We allow our customers to pre-file the taxes by the month of June and the data is sent to the IRS prior to July 1st. Once the IRS starts to accept the tax returns by July you will receive the Schedule-1 copy to your registered email ID by the first week of July. You just have to sit back and relax till you get the schedule-1 copy while others run about during the tax period to do their filings
