Form 2290 filing options to deal with the pro-rated filings due by January 31, 2020

Hello there truckers! Hope you rocked the New Year’s Eve and yet again it’s time to start fresh and move forward. Truck dues wishes you a happy and prosperous year ahead. Most of your truck tags are up for renewal and the common question that arises is “Do we need a schedule-1 copy for renewal?” well yes! But the most common question that we come across is “Where is the stamped IRS stating that the taxes are paid?”  Well let’s see that in detail today.

So when you do your Form 2290 filing manually (paper filing) by visiting your nearest IRS office once the tax payment is done towards your truck, the officials would give you a schedule-1 copy with an IRS stamp on it stating “paid”. This would serve as a proof of filing and payment towards your tax payment. But when you file your tax return electronically (e-filing) you would receive the schedule-1 copy as a PDF attachment with a water mark on the center of the page stating “E-filed on” (with the date of filing), which serves as your proof of filing. This would not have a physical stamp on it but an IRS water mark that’s digitally printed by the IRS automatically. This copy is all that you need to provide to the DMV to get your truck tags renewed. So have you filed your returns yet? Why wait, file it now.

Also for those who are waiting to get your schedule-1 copy for the tax return filed after December 26th 2019, the IRS systems will resume services starting January 7th, 2020 and all your pending filings will receive schedule-1 copies starting January 7th, 2020. Hope to give you more updates until next time and A Very Happy New Year again!

It’s just a couple of weeks before your Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 expires!

Hello there truckers, the Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 is now due by 12/31/2019 for vehicles first used since November 2019. This deadline is been drafted by the IRS federal law that indicates that Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the month following the month of its first use.

You may even think if this deadline has anything to do about the regular Annual renewals which are basically due by June & payable until August. But, it does not. This deadline is only concerned about vehicles that are into service since November 2019.

The Heavy highway vehicle is basically paid on trucks with a minimum taxable gross weight of 55000 lbs and it’s paid for vehicles that are used over the public highways for commercial, agricultural & logging purposes. The desired mileage limit for exemption is drafted upon these vehicles based on the nature of its use.

For commercial based units & logging vehicles the desired mileage limit of exemption is said to be 5000 miles each and for Agricultural based vehicles, it is said to be 7500 miles. Only when to seem to exceed the respective mileage based on your vehicle’s desired purpose of use you need to make the tax payment to the IRS full in advance for the period it needs to be reported.

Failure to pay the tax dues on time results in incurrence of penalties & interests on top of the requisite tax due owed anywhere ranging from 2.5% to 4.5% of the total tax due amount to be paid granting no further extensions whatsoever. E-filing 2290 has been made easy with www.truckdues.com where quality service is been offered at a much affordable price as e-filing begins here as low as $7.99 our help-desk is just at a phone call away.

How to Claim Refund on Form 2290 Tax Dues Paid Upfront!

Paid the taxes in full for the previous tax year but you vehicle ran less than 5000 miles? You will be eligible to claim a full refund or transfer the credits to the current tax year (If you plan to operate more than 5000 miles)

A claim for refund can be for the following scenarios,

  • Over paid tax due by mistake.
  • Taxable vehicle Sold/ Transferred / Destroyed or Stolen.
  • The vehicle was used within the mileage use limit (5,000 miles or less; 7,500 or less for agricultural vehicles).

In this article we will see especially about Low mileage vehicle credits refund and transfer

Vehicles used within the taxable mileage: The taxable mileage limit for a heavy vehicle is 5,000 miles (7,500 for agricultural). As said before the taxes are paid for the whole year and if your vehicle has run under 5,000 miles (7,500 for agricultural vehicles) you are eligible for low mileage credits. This can be applied only when the entire tax period (July 1 – June 30) is completed. The Vehicle mileage credits is limited only to miles operated on the vehicle regardless to the number of owners.

To get a refund based on low mileage you need to start a new return and select form “8849 schedule-6”. This is a special form dedicated for refund purposes. Then over the next page you need to select Low mileage vehicle credits to declare your vehicle exempt from tax. Over the next page just select “add vehicles” to enter the VIN number, first used month and reason for refund, also you need to attach the copy of the schedule-1 copy for reference. That is all within just 3 steps you can claim a refund on the taxes paid.

To transfer the credits to the current year filing (Only if the truck is assumed to run over 5000 miles) start a new return and select “form 2290”, select the first used month and tax year and over the next page you have to select two boxes which says “taxable vehicle & Low mileage vehicle credits”. The next page is where you can see two rows , the first one would be for entering the truck details on which the taxes needs to be transferred and the second one is to declare the previous year filing under low mileage credits. Then the rest is the same just proceed further with payment. 

By following these steps you can either claim a refund or transfer the credits to the current tax year

Professional advise on Claiming your overpaid 2290 Tax Due!

Double payments we all face this issues on daily basis don’t we? This happens either because of a technical error or because of our ignorance. But we do always have an option to claim it back. Now how a double payment occurs when it comes to Form 2290 filing and the method to reclaims the excess paid taxes.

Generally when a tax return is filed electronically the tax payer is offered 4 different payment options to make the tax payment to the IRS namely:

  1. Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW)
  2. Electronic Federal Tax Payment System
  3. Credit/Debit card
  4. Check or Money order.

Now let’s discuss the possible outcomes for overpayments via the above mentioned tax payment options. While using EFW the payment gets automatically cleared by the IRS from your given checking or saving account within 24-48 hours from the time your tax return got processed by the IRS. Or by reporting the same vehicle twice for the same tax period

Besides, there is no specific paperwork provided by the IRS to indicate the tax due clearance hence most people tend to make another payment to the IRS using an alternative options hence ending up paying taxes twice.

On the other hand while using a credit card, there are chances to process payment twice due to multiple clicks or responses given from the tax payer’s end over the IRS authorized payment processor’s website namely www.PayUSAtax.com, www.Pay1040.com & www.officialpayments.com.

Hence, if you had an over-payment in your 2290 tax due payment, do not hesitate to claim a refund by e-filing the claim Form 8849 Schedule 6 to receive the refund check in your mailing address in 21 business days.

E-File your Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 before Christmas Eve!

Truckers are you wondering whether to pay the taxes for the whole year or if that could be partial. Often assumptions lead to confusion with the tax deadlines and on the tax due amount part. The IRS Federal law indicates that “All heavy vehicles operated on the high way with a gross weight of 55,000 lbs or above and with a mileage of 5,000 miles (7,500 miles for agricultural vehicle) is taxable”.  

The Prorated tax concept is basically calculated from the month of the vehicle’s first use. That being said the payment date would be your next question. Well, as per the IRS the “Prorated taxes are to be paid by the last date of the month following the month in which it was first used”. So the taxes for the vehicles bought by November is NOW due and the deadline to pay with no penalties would be 31st Dec, 2019.

What will you possibly incur if you don’t pay the 2290 tax dues on time? Well that’s simple, the IRS will charges a fee for failure to file and failure to pay at a rate of 4.5% and a penalty of 0.5% of the taxable amount. So think twice before you fall behind your HVUT Form 2290 Deadline.

Last week left before e-filing your Pro-rated Form 2290 on Time!

Hello there truckers, the Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 is now due by Oct 31, 2019 for vehicles first used since September 2019. This Pro-rated deadline is drafted based on the Federal law that indicates Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the month following the month of its first use.

If you had purchase/re-purchase any new trucks during September 2019, then you got 60 days before you could file this Form 2290, you generally file this tax Form to get your vehicle plates, tags, licenses renewed.

The HVUT Form 2290 is basically an annual tax paid to the Internal Revenue Service which is paid on Heavy trucks which comprises a taxable gross weight of 55000 lbs to the minimum until 80000 lbs & above and if the said truck is used on the public highways for commercial, agricultural & logging purposes.

However, the vehicle is determined to be a Taxable vehicle (Where the tax payment needs to be made full in advance to the IRS) or Suspended/Exempt vehicle (Where no tax payment needs to be made to the IRS) based on the desired mileage limit for exemption drafted by the Internal Revenue Service by virtue of the nature of job the utility vehicle performs.

Hence, if the subjected vehicle is expected not to go over the desired mileage use of exemption, it remains to be exempt from Form 2290 tax payment, however a tax return needs to be filed for this vehicle to legally claim and exemption.

Have you not received your Tax Refund back from the IRS yet?

Hello there truckers, we receive calls from HVUT payers quite frequently wanting to know what is the status of their refund claim. But as must know that the IRS remains to be the sole decision maker in approving/disapproving any claims filed electronically.

Generally the IRS takes up to 21 business days before mailing the refund check to your mailing address. But at times tax payers have reported us about non receipt of the check from the government whereas such queries must be dealt directly with the Internal Revenue Service as they are the deciding authority to go ahead and perform investigation to identify the root cause behind the delay.

Generally there are multiple reasons behind the delay of refund issuance and most common reasons are delay in shipping, approval/disapproval from the IRS end despite successful acceptance of your claim return electronically which will be notified by the IRS only after a couple of weeks which further prolong the tentative timeframe, besides weekends & Federal Holidays contribute their share to the delay as well.

Hence, if there was any delay in receiving the refund check back from the IRS you may feel free to contact the IRS refund claim inquiry helpdesk @ (866) 699-4096 to know the exact reason behind the delay and to know what are the additional documents which you need to produce to re-initiate your claim.
