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.

Despite the IRS e-file shutdown period, you could still e-file your Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290.

New Year is right around the corner. New Year’s is the perfect occasion to celebrate Love, friendships and all the good things in life. Let’s take the time to appreciate what this year has      given us and what the new one is about to bring! A new year means new beginnings, love, chocolates, and warm wishes for your friends and family. Now at this joyous time, we would like to remind you about the forthcoming Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 Deadline and the IRS year end maintenance period.

Every year, during the Christmas Eve, the IRS online servers will turn offline with a motive to upgrade their e-file systems in order to accept tax returns for the following tax period (For the period beginning July 1st, 2019 through June 30th, 2020). Now any tax returns e-filed during this downtime will be processed until the IRS recommences full operations, which is expected to turn up during the 2nd week of January 2019.

However, that doesn’t mean that you simply can’t e-file your tax returns right now, you could have it e-filed right now and wait until the IRS recommencement before receiving the IRS digital watermarked copy of Schedule 1 in your registered e-mail address. The Federal law states that the Form 2290 must be e-filed on a vehicle by the last day of the month following the month of its first use. On that basis, now the Form 2290 is due by Dec 31st, for vehicles first used since November 2018. E-file before the deadline.

Failure to E-file the Form 2290 before the deadline might end up in owing the IRS a penalty for late in filing & payment. This penalties might fluctuate between 3 to 5% of the overall tax due owed on your vehicle and the worst part is the interest will accumulate on daily basis as long as you prolong the lateness beyond the desired deadline assuming it as an extension. In the first place we would like to make our dear truckers aware that there has been no extensions for Form 2290.
