Besides, mandatory usage of EIN is not only the reason behind a Form 2290 rejection as the registered business name also does matter. Since, many owner operators haul goods under their favorite business names; In terms of Form 2290, it is referred to be a “DOING BUSINESS AS NAME” commonly abbreviated to be a “DBA” which will not be entertained by the Internal Revenue Service Servers as they fail to validate your Form unless you use the registered business name as per the IRS records.
