Basic Rejection Scenarios on HVUT Form 2290!

We realize that truckers are really busy on road and they always stay committed towards moving the nation’s economy forward. So they merely get a chance to remember the HVUT tax deadlines. Although when they remember that they haven’t filed one, they file it near the deadline in a last moment rush.

While doing so, in haste you might be welcoming careless mistakes, which would cost you heavy. A rejected return only means having it do all over again and no one would relish it! Yet, there is always a silver lining. By e-filing with instead of paper filing, you are already much less likely to make mistakes. Since, you’ve got our Tax Experts by your side, expertly answering all of your tax questions. So there’s no reason to file blindly and hope you’ve got it right!

  1. Incorrect First-Used Month:This error may not get your return rejected, but it will cause issues when it comes to your tags. The tax year for HVUT begins July 1st of every calendar year. This means that for all renewals (trucks that have been in use already), the first-used month is automatically July, even if you’re filing in August. The only time you’d choose a later month is when the truck is purchased after or before the beginning of the tax year. For example, if you purchase a new truck in September, then that would be the first-used month of the vehicle, as Form 2290 is generally due on a vehicle by the last day of the month following the month of its first use.


  1. Name or EIN Mismatch:Your name, business name, and EIN must match exactly what the IRS has on their file. If any of these are different, the return will be rejected. If you are unsure of the name or EIN on file, you should quickly call the IRS to verify. The IRS EIN Hotline is 1-800-829-4933.


  1. EIN Not Registered:So you’ve already registered for an EIN, but the IRS isn’t showing any record of it. This is normal if your EIN is new. It takes about 15 business days (Excluding weekends & Federal Holidays) for the IRS to record an EIN application, and if you don’t have an EIN yet, you can apply online at the IRS Website.


  1. VIN Errors:These 17 little digits can make or break your return! Most often, incorrect VIN numbers leads to a duplicate filing error. This occurs when you accidentally try to file a return for the same truck more than once. The IRS will only allow a VIN to be processed once within the tax year. And if you have accidentally filing with the wrong VIN, the same would be imprinted on your schedule 1 copy. You need to correct it as soon as you realize it. Or you will have to answer the auditors during the audit. However, there’s good news! When using the Bulk Upload option to import your vehicle information from a CSV or Excel file, our application will let you know right away if you’re uploading duplicate VIN’s. Moreover, if your return is rejected for a duplicate filing error, our Tax Experts will help you find it and correct.


  1. Incorrect Bank Routing #:This nine digit bank code can be found along the bottom left of a check, just before your account number. If you elect to pay your taxes by EFW (Electronic Funds Withdrawal), you will need to enter this information correctly, or your return may be rejected.

If your return is rejected, you can correct it and re-transmit it to the IRS free! Only if you E-filed with Adding up reasons to ditch the old traditional method- Paper filing. You’ll also receive your stamped Schedule 1 within minutes of your return being accepted, something else that paper-filers miss out on.
