What you must do, when the application says “EIN already Exists”!

Hello there truckers, we hope this article reaches you with high spirits. We certainly realize that how hard it is for a Trucker to remember the Tax Deadlines amidst of his busy schedule as they work really hard 24/7 to serve our nation’s demand on time. If a Trucker is not been able to remember the tax deadline no wonder he could not remember which website he used/how did he e-file his past year’s filing.

For your kind information, there is nearly 30 websites who were been authorized by the IRS to support e-filing Form 2290. However, there are only few companies amongst the list which have proved their reliability & sustainability over the years, one among them is Truckdues.com.

Truckdues.com stepped into the 2290 E-filing service industry in 2014, we had a mediocre establishment among the Trucking community despite the huge competition from the mammoths in this line of industry & many widespread CPA firms. However, we stayed determined & focused as we went further despite crossing many hurdles with our Unique Significance as the Pricing $7.99.

We understand how hard it is for a trucker to make more money despite of their blood & sweat involved in their daily work, so we drafted this very honest pricing which indeed got us a great exposure among a large number of Independent Truck drivers who still have many enriching memories left behind using our services by far as we remain strictly adhered towards our motto that is “Our SALES may go up or down; but our SERVICE stays forever “

Now getting back on Track, when you encounter this message “EIN already exists” which means that you have already have used our website in the past years though you are unaware of that fact besides you try to register on our website all over again.

Now in this situation you just need to request for a new password/reset your account password from the website so you’d be able to gain access to your existing account and to gain access to your prior filings done via our services. This way will let you import most of the necessary information from your prior filings you so you don’t need to type in all the information one more time; thus this process remains time efficient.

Our Tax experts stay dedicated to assist you with your HVUT Form 2290 needs or working hours are from [Monday through Friday, 9 A.M to 5 P.MCentral Standard Time]. See you over the next article. Happy Trucking! Keep Moving America Forward!

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.

Read this if you Faced a Transaction failure while processing our service fee payment!

Hello there Truckers, over this article we are going to discuss about the most common trouble faced by our users while trying to process the service fee payment using their credit/debit cards towards electronically transmitting their tax returns to the IRS for acceptance.

When you generally try to use your credit/debit card over any website to conduct a transaction, you could possibly face a transaction failure message due to these 3 common errors as listed below:

Error 1 – Incorrect personal information.

Error 2 – Delayed payment

Error 3 – Incorrect credit card details.

Incorrect personal information:

The term speaks for itself, when your information entered likely Name on the card, the Billing address etc. seems to be imprecise in accordance to the card you’re trying to use, basically it ends up as a failure in authenticity of the transaction, and hence our system will not be able to capture/process the payment off your card. Hence, it’s better to verify your personal information before processing a payment.

Delayed payment:

A stable internet connection is absolutely necessary for a transaction to go through successfully. If the internet speed fluctuates heavily then it could affect the transaction. Also, closing the tab or window will result in failed payment or incomplete payment. Also, letting the webpage to remain stranded for a longer with no activity might expel you off the current session and would advise you to re-login to re-establish connection. That being said, this remains to be another reason to face a Transaction Failure.

Incorrect credit card details.

If your transaction is unsuccessful, it’s because your bank or Credit Card Company has declined the transaction due to entry of incorrect details. Possible reasons why your payment was declined: your type of card is not accepted by this website like if you forget to select the type of the card such as VISA, MASTER, AMERICAN EXPRESS, DISCOVER etc. before entering your card details.

Now regardless of the above 3 error scenarios, if you faced a transaction failure & if your bank account indicates withdrawals, do not panic as the failure payments does appear to be a debit on your statement but technically the money was unsettled to us on these failure transactions.

Well, generally your financial institution/Bank reserves the amount for every transaction that you attempt to conduct. However if the transaction fails your bank will automatically release the funds back to your bank account. Generally it takes up to 2-4 business days (depends on your financial institution’s terms & regulations) to notice the credit appearance in your card. You may certainly contact your bank for further inquiries over this matter.

We hope you find this article useful while performing any credit card transactions henceforth.

It’s the last day to E-File your Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 for vehicles first used in Dec 2018!

Hello there Truckers, Today is the last day to E-File your Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290 (For the Period beginning Dec 2018 through June 2019) to the IRS. This deadline is only applicable for vehicles which are purchased/re-purchased and been used on the road since Dec 2018.

Basically the HVUT Form 2290 is due by the month of June and its payable until the end of August. However, if any vehicles are purchased at the middle of a respective tax period the said vehicle is liable to be reported on the Form 2290 on a Pro-rated basis before the last day of the month following the month of its first use.

On this basis, the Pro-rated Form 2290 would be due by January 31st, 2019 for vehicles which are into service from December 2018. However, before filing your pro-rated HVUT you must be able to guess the number of miles the truck would travel during the respective tax period it’s reported for.

The Internal Revenue Service sets the desired mileage of exemption to be 5000 miles (For commercial & logging vehicles) and 7500 miles (For Agricultural Vehicles). Now if the subjected vehicles seems not to exceed this mileage limit based on its nature of purpose it remains exempt from paying taxes to the IRS however the tax return needs to be filed to report an exemption.

On the other hand if the vehicles does seem to exceed the mileage of exemption for the period its intended to be reported, you’ve got to make the tax payment full in advance to the Internal revenue service. Soon as you e-file your tax return, you will receive the IRS digital watermarked copy of schedule 1 in your registered e-mail address.

The Government has temporarily recommenced operations after the longest shut down ever!

The U.S. government has re-opened temporarily after the longest shutdown in American history.  The impact that the 35 days of the President Trump’s government shutdown has had on federal workers and beyond.  This shutdown has adversely affected many tax payers either with quite a few tax forms were lined up for renewal namely, Federal tax Forms 2290, 720, International Fuel Tax Agreement & few more.

According to the statistics of the Congressional Budget Office, The recent government shutdown cost the economy $11 billion, including a permanent $3 billion loss. Although most of the damage to the economy will be reversed as the government reopens and workers return to their jobs, the CBO Congressional Budget Office (Federal agency) estimated $3 billion in economic activity is permanently lost.

Whilst this historical shutdown prevailed, many HVUT tax payers contacted us to know about the IRS recommencement to deal with their penalties, general inquiries and etc.  Since www.truckdues.com serves to be an intermediate service provider for e-filing the Federal tax form 2290, our expertise is only towards the overall e-filing process and its sequential processes.

However, throughout this shutdown we had to manage many conventional paper filer’s questions due to major local IRS facilities & Courthouses shutdown besides the e-filing option was there as live option to File and pay the HVUT Form 2290 amidst the shutdown and e-filers were still been able to File, pay & Receive the IRS digital watermarked copies of Schedule 1 in their registered e-mail address.

However, we felt happy that we were considered to as a helpline for 2290 e-filing by many owner operators who had no option to schedule any appointments nor was able to contact the Internal Revenue Service regarding seeking assistance with their Heavy Vehicle Used tax Forms. We always feel much obliged to serve the ever hard working trucking community with their HVUT Tax Filing needs.

Did you know an EIN recognition period can be prolonged due during the Government Shutdown?

Hey there truckers, we got to let you know about one of the major impact of the recent government shutdown over your HVUT Form 2290 filings. The federal law states that you must wait until 15 business days (Excluding the weekends & Federal Holidays) before you could use your newly acquired EIN over any e-filed tax returns.

Now as that the government shutdown still persists, it seems to have a direct impact on the EIN maturity tenure. We have been told that 15 days period remains non accountable if the EIN was applied during the course of the government shutdown. So the 15 business days waiting period is even more extended without any further notice until the Government officially ceases its shutdown.

Now due to this fact, a large number of truckers who recently applied for a New EIN are facing rejections on their Form 2290 application from the IRS due to non-recognition of the EIN despite the fact that the EIN is at least 15 business days older, now this evidently delays Truckers their chance of getting their vehicle registration done as they can’t renew their trucks tags, licenses etc. Unless they submit the IRS stamped 2290 Schedule 1, Thus it results in many truckers who are not been able to start making money with them trucks.

The worst part is, generally when you encounter any issue with your EIN such as electronic database non-recognition, you can go ahead with the old school fashion paper filing/filing at the local IRS facility. Now due to the shutdown all the Local IRS centers remain closed until the Government shutdown is ceased. Perhaps if you were thinking about mailing the documents to the Treasury; it would take forever than before right now due to this shutdown.
