Just four days remain before the April 30th deadline for submitting Form 2290 for vehicles first used since March 2021. E-file Now!

Good day, truckers! We’ve got an important update for you. For any new vehicles first used on a public highway in March, the Heavy Highway vehicle used tax return is due on a pro-rated basis for the period July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2021, and is due on April 30, 2021.

E-filing allows for a quicker approval of the tax return. It’s best to E-File your HVUT Form 2290 as soon as possible to prevent a last-minute panic that might result in your vehicle registration being revoked. Many last-minute 2290 e-filers have been advised that they will be unable to earn income so failure to file this form prevents you from using your vehicle on the road to support the needs of the people.

The deadline for submitting Form 2290 is April 30th, which is only a few days away. Now is the time to submit your electronic filing.

Any heavy vehicle with a gross weight of less than 55,000 lbs must file a Form 2290, but the tax liability element is based on the number of miles driven. When the truck has traveled more than 5,000 miles for commercial use or 7,500 miles for agricultural use. When a vehicle does not exceed the desired mileage cap within a tax year, it is counted as excluded from paying HVUT taxes to the IRS. During checks and roadside inspections, however, the vehicle must be identified using Form 2290 to validate its exemption.

E-filing has been one of the digital revolutions, allowing taxpayers to safely register and pay their Federal Excise Tax Returns with the Internal Revenue Service. The main motivation for implementing E-filing is to make it easier for taxpayers to meet their tax deadlines. It frees them up from making appointments at the nearest IRS office and waiting a day for their turn to come before they hit the counter. The worst thing is that any last-minute changes are ignored, forcing you to restart from the beginning. Instead, sit back, relax, and e-file your Form 2290 in a matter of minutes at truckdues website.

Ask the Tax Expert: Do I Need an EIN? | MileIQ

Hello there dear truckers, last week’s blog was emphasized the different types of rejections. The most important of them all was the EIN rejection or name control rejection the combination of the EIN and the name of the taxpayer is revised into a unique identifier for each taxpayer.

When do you use the low mileage credit?

Truckers, in this post, we’ll go through how to get a refund on your vehicle if you discover that you haven’t driven it over the desired mileage cap for exemption. The mileage cap for exemption, according to the Internal Revenue Service, stands at 5000 miles for commercial vehicles and 7500 miles for farming and logging vehicles.

The Heavy Highway Vehicle Used Tax Return HVUT Form 2290 is an annual tax charged to the Internal Revenue Service on vehicles with gross weights of over 55000 lbs and that is used for the same purpose every year. Form 2290 is due in June and is payable through the end of August.

Since Form 2290 must be filed upfront for the next 12 months, one must be certain of the miles the truck will be used. If the truck will be used within the exemption mileage, you will not have to pay any taxes to the IRS. We must only pay the IRS the tax due sum if we surpass the desired mileage cap of exemption. But what if you declare your truck as a taxable vehicle by mistake and pay the tax due, only to discover later that you have not driven up to the mileage limit? This is when you use the IRS’s low-mileage credit option, in which you use the IRS’s e-file Form 8849 schedule-6 to request a mileage refund and register the vehicle under low-mileage credits. This, though, can only be done after the existing tax year has finished and the new tax year has started.
