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.

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.

Well! Mistakes are ought to be corrected

Low Mileage Vehicle Credit or Suspended/Exempt Category? Explained!

Hello there Truckers, doesn’t this question sound familiar to you? Almost on a daily basis, we receive calls as such inquiring about How do I/where do I report my truck that is not used above the desired mileage for exemption? The common misconception that evolves amongst many HVUT e-filers is that both these terms sound similar. However in terms of Form 2290 they are different attributes.

While e-filing your HVUT Form 2290, you might have noticed the section, Suspended/Exempt vehicles this section is basically to report when the heavy vehicle is been used under the desired mileage limit for exemption (5000 miles for Commercial & Logging based Units) & (7500 miles for Agricultural based Units) In this case, you need not make any tax payments to the IRS as they are exempt but you still got to report the vehicle on this Form to legally claim an exemption.

On the other hand, The Term Low mileage vehicle credits sounds to be referring to low mileage or exempt vehicles, but in reality it’s related to Claiming a refund on the Taxes paid full in advance on a low mileage vehicle. Upon realization of the mileage recorded by the end of the tax period for which the tax payment was made full in advance, you claim a full refund back from the IRS during the renewal of the following tax year’s tax return.

Sounds confusing? Well here’s an example: John purchased a commercial utility vehicle in July 2018 and he needs to get his vehicles registered with the state authorities so does he needs to file a Form 2290 report. So he reported the vehicle on the Form 2290 (For the period beginning July 1st, 2018 through June 30th, 2019) and made an upfront tax payment to the IRS. However, due to unforeseen mechanical wear & tear unfortunately the truck was not used quite actively as he expected hence it recorded an overall mileage that is less than/below the actual mileage limit for exemption as (5000 miles)

Now, he’s got to renew his Form 2290 for the upcoming period (For the period beginning July 1st, 2019 through June 30th, 2020. During this time, he’s got a chance to claim a full refund on the tax paid for past tax year on the renewal form so evidently the tax due amount will be nullified on the renewal form. On the other hand, If John does not seem to own any trucks during the next renewal, he can simply claim a full refund (Form of cash) by filing the Form 8849 Schedule 6 ( Claim for refund of excise taxes) and wait until 21 business days to receive a refund check back in his mailing address.
