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.

Types of rejections when filing HVUT Form 2290!

Are you facing form rejections while filing your HVUT Form 2290? Well there are three different factors which plays a major role in getting your form rejected. These rejections are mostly dues to small errors and can be rectified right away. Let’s see the factors in detail for a better and accurate filing of your taxes.

  1. RTN rejection (Routing Transit number entered wrong).
  2. EIN rejection
  3. Due to New EIN.
  4. Due to Mismatch in the name and address registered to the EIN
  5. VIN duplication.

RTN Rejection: This rejection occurs when you enter the Routing Transit Number wrong while declaring your account details when choosing the IRS tax payment method as EFW (Electronic Funds Withdrawal). The most common possibilities of mistakes are entering the Routing number wrong or by interchanging the account number in the place of routing number or vice versa

EIN rejection: The IRS rejected your form 2290 when the EIN is rather new or if the Name of your business and Address doesn’t match with the IRS records.

  • If your EIN is a new one the IRS needs 15 Business days (excluding weekends and federal holidays) to recognize a new EIN and process the filing. Any Filing done with the EIN which is less than 15 business days will end up rejected.
  • When you EIN Doesn’t match with the IRS records the form will be rejected. The address and the name of the business registered while obtaining the EIN should match with the current address and name while filing. This error occurs when a customer has a recent change of address and fails to report to IRS before filing.

This can be rectified by checking the address change box while reporting your vehicle there by informing the IRS about the change in address and if any changes to be done on the business name, you need to contact the IRS and have it changed before you can file the taxes.

VIN duplication: The IRS doesn’t normally accept double payments or double filings hence this rejection happens. Let’s assume if your vehicle was traded or bought from a dealer for which the taxes were already paid in full by the previous owner. When you report the same vehicle under the business the IRS would reject the form stating “VIN duplication”. Hence you need to contact the previous owner of the truck and with their consent you need to call the IRS to have the name and address changed on the 2290’s.

By keeping in mind of all these things you can successfully get you schedule-1 copy within minutes smoothly.

For what do we go for an Amendment?

Hey truckers it’s once again time for a few pointers and transfer of knowledge about your HVUT Form 2290 filings. The filing season was a hectic one wasn’t it? Since you are done with filing the returns hope you checked your schedule-1 copies for any mistakes. Any mismatch in the information would end up as a void filing. The recent questions which we faced was about “2290 AMENDMENTS”. In this blog we are going to see when to file an amendment and how to and when not to.

An Amendment is bringing about a change or correction to an existing return. People often confuse between VIN correction and an amendment. The VIN correction needs to be done on a separate filing and this doesn’t relate to anything with the Amendments.

Amendments are basically for reporting two things

  1. When there is an Increase in gross weight (truck, trailer and max load capacity)
  2. When the suspended vehicle exceeds mileage limit (over 5000 miles)

Increase in gross weight: Normally for a vehicle to qualify and to be reported under taxable vehicle criteria the total gross weight of your vehicle should be more than 55,000 lbs. The gross weight includes the weight of the truck, trailer and the maximum load it can haul. Let’s assume If you would have reported the vehicle originally under 55,000 lbs but the vehicle gross weight is actually over 75,000 lbs or if you plan on increasing your vehicles hauling capacity that’s when you do an amendment for the increase in taxable gross weight.

Suspended vehicle exceeds mileage limit: any vehicle which is operated less than 5000 miles (7500 for agricultural) the vehicle would be reported under suspended or exempt from tax category. If you would have filed the returns as a Suspended vehicle and if the miles put on the truck is exceeding 5000 miles that’s when you do an exceed in mileage amendment.

How to file an amendment?

Just start a new return, on the first page you have to select your business name, then select “2290 Amendments” followed by the tax year and first used month

Over the next page you would have two options “Increase in taxable gross weight” and “Suspended vehicle exceeds mileage limit”. Select the appropriate section and select the month to amend.

Over the next page select “create a new amendment” if the original filing was done through a different provider or select “Amend previously filed return” if the original filing was dine through Truckdues.

Over the next page select “Add vehicle “to enter the VIN number, previously reported data and new info into it and proceed further to pay the service fee and submit the form for amendment.
