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.

Truckers, we got to remind you about the upcoming HVUT tax deadline by November 30, 2019 for vehicles first used since October 2018. This deadline has been drafted based on the Federal Law that indicates that the Form 2290 needs to be filed by the last day of the month following the month of its first use.

This deadline is considered to be applicable for vehicles that are purchased/re-purchased or in use since October 2019. This deadline does not have any impact over regular annual renewals done in July & August of every year.

The Heavy Highway vehicle used taxes are generally paid on vehicles with a minimum taxable gross weight of 55000 lbs or more and if the subjected vehicle is used on the public highways for commercial & agricultural purposes.

Unlike your 1040’s the Form 2290’s are always been filed and paid upfront for the upcoming period. Hence, one must be sure of the fact if the truck would exceed the desired mileage limit for exemption to pay the tax dues full in advance whereas if the truck might under run the said limit to claim a complete exemption from paying taxes to the IRS.

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.
