Know before you choose the IRS tax payment while e-filing your 2290!

Hello there HVUT payers, we hope this article reaches you with high spirits. Now over this article we are going to discuss the most common misconception that arise among the HVUT payers while choosing the right IRS tax payment option while e-filing their HVUT Form 2290.

As you know, while e-filing your HVUT Form 2290 you got 4 different options in order to make the tax payment to the IRS. Namely

  1. Electronic Funds Withdrawal
  2. Electronic Federal Tax Payment System
  3. Credit or Debit Card
  4. Check or Money Order

Amongst the 4 above option, only via Electronic Funds withdrawal the IRS will be able to process the tax payment automatically. Rest other options require your action to logon to the respective website and schedule payments to the U.S. Department of Treasury.

Recently the IRS began accepting tax payments using Credit/Debit cards. Since, then many HVUT payers are prone to misconception based on their assumption that paying the IRS tax payment using credit/debit card is an automated process but in reality it’s not. Hence, by far many HVUT payers have received a letter from the IRS stating a non-tax payment due to the ignorance of the tax payers.

So, inured for you to be able to make the IRS tax due payment using your credit/debit card you must log on to https://www.irs.gov/payments/pay-taxes-by-credit-or-debit-card and choose one of the 3 payment processors who support tax payment using card.

Claiming a Low Mileage Vehicle Credit- Explained how!

Hello there Truckers, over this article we are going to discuss on How to go about claiming a low mileage vehicle credit for trucks that are used quite inactively over the road. Most truckers are not really sure how to claim a refund on vehicles for which the taxes were paid full in advance during the beginning of the tax period.

The Low Mileage vehicle is basically claimed over trucks which were not used over the desired mileage for exemption during the end of the tax period. Almost on a daily basis, we receive queries from the HVUT tax payers saying that their trucks are not in service due to mechanical wear & tear, engine related issues, due to natural calamities etc.  

Now if such occurrences happen when the Tax Form 2290 was already filed for the subjected vehicle, the owner of the vehicle must refer to the odometer reading to record the number of miles the truck has covered until the period it was reported. If that seems to be exceeding the desired mileage use of Exemption (5000 miles for Commercial based Units & 7500 for Agricultural based units) No further action is required from your end.

On the Contrary, if the subjected vehicles seems not to have exceeded the desired mileage use of Exemption (5000 miles for Commercial based Units & 7500 for Agricultural based units) then you are entitled to claim a full refund on the taxes paid on this vehicle. However, you will only be able to claim this refund after the current tax period officially ceases.
