kick-off 2290 tax filing, Aug 31 is the Last Date!

The federal heavy vehicle use taxes are annual taxes must be filed between July and August of the tax year. Mark your calendar! The regular 2290 truck tax return filing deadline is August 31, falls on Wednesday, file your returns well within the due date to get your heavy vehicles registered with the state’s and motor vehicle authorities on time. Most truckers must file their 2290 heavy vehicle use taxes for the tax year 2016-17 by August 31, 2016. IRS must have received your return electronically – or it must be delivered or postmarked – by that date. If you owe tax, you must pay by August 31, even if you file your return later.

If you owe taxes on your heavy vehicle use and you file or efile late without getting a tax extension, the IRS will generally charge penalties based on the amount you owe. There are also penalties for paying your 2290 taxes late, even if you got an extension. However, the late filing penalties are more severe, so you should try to file your 2290 truck tax returns on time even if you owe taxes and can’t pay.   Continue reading

Evolution of Filing Tax Form 2290 (HVUT)

In good old days one will remember how hard it was to communicate messages between people who live far away. We had limited options either meet the person directly or mail them a letter. Everyone knows how hard both these options are, complications involved are delay in conveying the message and of course a lot of traveling involved, which is time consuming as well.

Likewise, the options for filing a Tax Form 2290 (HVUT) in the past was either the filer has to walk into the local IRS office or has to fill out a paper form and mail it to the IRS. There are many disadvantages in this form of tax filing. Continue reading

Third Party Designee In Form 2290

Hello truckers, welcome back to our TruckDues Blog. A new week is here, and so here is a new blog post for you all truckers to read and apply the information in your tax filing sessions.

Today we would talk about all about Third Party Designee and give you a clear picture about the same. We have been paying form 2290 every year for the vehicles weighting more than 55,000 pounds. Each time you file your form online, the application ask you if you would like to assign third party designee for your form 2290. Some skip, some do assign. It’s up to you but there are certain benefits you can enjoy if you assign a third party designee.

There would be many reasons for not assigning a designee for your tax discussion; however, today we will speak about the roles and recognitions of a Third Party Designee.

Purpose of Third Party Designee:

Well, if you want any of your employee or business head, a return preparer or any other third party who deals with your financial returns, can discuss with IRS about your form 2290. While filing form, check on “Yes” to authorize IRS to speak with the designee to answer the questions shot by IRS related to the information noted in form 2290. Also, you are authorizing the designee for:

  • Exchange of information concerning form 2290 with IRS,
  • Request and receive written tax return information related to form 2290, including copies of notices, correspondence, and account transcripts.

You need to mention the designee’s name, phone number and the five digits that person choose as his/her personal identification number (PIN). The authorization applies only to the tax return on, which it appears. However, the taxpayer is not authorizing the designee to bind the taxpayer to anything, that includes additional tax liability or otherwise represent the taxpayer before the IRS. the authorization expires in a year’s time from the date of authorization. If you wish to revoke the same, you can write to IRS. Check IRS official website for more information.

Types of Vehicle Filed With Form 2290 Only @ TruckDues.com

So filers, how are you doing? Hope everything is on smooth grounds. Last week we had spoke about the security levels we maintain at TruckDues.com. However, today we are going to talk about the vehicles filed through form 2290. Yes, this application supports varied type of vehicles that need to be filed on or before the taxation season due date.

With no further delay, we are going to hit the discussion right away. Keep following:

Types of Vehicles:

Taxable Vehicles:

The very first and foremost type of vehicle filed through form 2290 is taxable vehicles. These vehicles are categorized as taxable based on the weight of the truck or the taxable gross weight of the truck & the mileage for the taxation season. The main reason for collecting the funds is to moderate and maintain the highways as these heavy vehicles cause most of the damage. Also, taxpayers and owner operators who own more than 25 vehicles should efile with an authentic efiling service provider like TruckDues.com. And if you miss to file form 2290 on or before the due date, you are liable to pay penalties online, which might be heavy on your pockets

Suspended Vehicles:

The next set of vehicles file form 2290 is suspended vehicles. These vehicles do not cross the minimum mileage i.e. 5,000 miles and 7,500 miles for agricultural purpose and thus, they’re not required to pay dues, however, they need to keep IRS informed about their suspension through form 2290.

The Vehicles That Are Included In This Category Are:

  • Commercial vehicles with average mileage less than 5,000 and 7,500 miles for agricultural used vehicles
  • Mobile machinery for non-transportation function, non-transportation trailers and semi-trailers
  • Qualified as official blood collectors by blood banks and organizations

However, do note, annual miles exceeding more than 5,000 and 7,500 miles for agricultural vehicles are calculated as taxable miles. You need to file Form 2290 Amendments to pay your dues and receive revised schedule 1 copy.

Exempted vehicles:

After taxable and suspended vehicles, exempted vehicles are the operated and maintained by the government itself and that is why they don’t have to pay any dues to IRS, however, they need to report form 2290 for their vehicle.

The following are the vehicles included in the list:

  • The Federal Government,
  •  The American National Red Cross,
  •  The District of Columbia,
  •  A nonprofit volunteer fire department, ambulance association, or rescue squad,
  •  A state or local government,
  • Indian tribal governments (To carry out essential tribal government functions)
  • Mass transportation authority’s (under certain conditions)

Also, include these vehicles in the list:

  • Qualified blood collector vehicles used by qualified blood collector organizations, and
  • Mobile machinery that don’t come under the category of heavy vehicle.

Logging Vehicles:

These vehicles are exclusively used for the conduct of logging operations.

A Logging Vehicle Is Qualified On the Following Basis:

  • Exclusively used for transporting harvested products from the forested site, or for transporting products harvested from the forested site to and from locations on a forested site (public highways may be used between the forested site locations), and
  • The vehicle is registered as highway motor vehicle and used exclusively in the transportation of harvested forest products. In addition, no special tags are required.

Agricultural Vehicles:

Agricultural vehicles are involved in harvesting and transporting agricultural goods, and the maximum mileage is 7,500 miles annually.

The vehicles that fall under this category are:

  • Primarily used for farming purpose.
  • Registered under the highway motor vehicle but they are exclusively used for farming and agricultural purpose. In addition, there are no special tags to differentiate the vehicle.
