Failure to Transmit your return to the IRS will delay your 2290 Acceptance!

Hey there Truckers, over this article we are going to discuss about the most common error committed by the HVUT tax filers whist e-filing their HVUT Form 2290. This error occurs when the tax filer is not aware about the fact the tax return needs to be transmitted to the IRS post preparation in order for being able to receive the IRS digital watermarked copy of Schedule 1 back in their e-mail.

During the e-filing process, most HVUT payers assume that they have completed the e-filing process right after they make the service fee payment using their credit/debit card. However, at times they forget the final step in submitting the prepared tax return to the Internal Revenue Service.

The HVUT Form 2290 is basically the Heavy Highway vehicle used tax return filed for trucks which comprises a minimum gross weight of 55000 lbs or more and the same truck is been used over the public highways for commercial/agricultural/logging purposes.

If the said vehicle needs to be registered with the state department of motor vehicle, the Form 2290 needs to be filed upfront and the IRS digital watermarked copy of schedule 1 is required during the vehicle registration is concerned. Unless the stamped schedule 1 copy is submitted, the DMV does not support renewals of License plates, tags, stickers and so on.

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.

Things to know while making the IRS tax payment for your Form 2290!

Hello there truckers, over this article we are going to discuss about the types of IRS tax payment options available while e-filing your HVUT Form 2290. On a daily basis we receive calls from our clients receiving a failure to pay penalty from the IRS due to the misconception occurred while selecting the right IRS payment option.

While e-filing the HVUT Form 2290, basically there 4 different payment options involved as follows:

  1. Electronic Funds withdrawal
  2. Electronic Federal tax payment System
  3. Credit/Debit Card
  4. Check/Money Order.

Now, amongst the 4 options listed above, the only option that lets the IRS to automatically process your payment from your bank account would be the Electronic Funds withdrawal commonly abbreviated to be EFW.

The other payment options such as the EFTPS/ Credit/Debit options require your action to log on to the respective website to initiate or schedule a payment to the Department of treasury.  Such as the tax payer is required to log on to www.eftps.gov upon choosing EFTPS as the payment option, whereas the tax payer needs to log on to https://www.irs.gov/payments/pay-taxes-by-credit-or-debit-card to be able to schedule payments to the Internal Revenue Service

Most tax payers presume by mistake that all the above options such as Electronic Funds withdrawal, Electronic Federal tax payment System, Credit/Debit Card are automated process hence it results in non-tax payment of taxes and receiving notices.

Hence, in order to get a clear idea of the working terminology of the payment options, you may feel free to reach us back for further assistance during your e-filing process over the following mediums:
