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.

Despite the Government Shutdown, you still can e-file your Pro-rated HVUT Form 2290!

Hey there truckers, this article is to indicate that we got a near term tax deadline by Jan 31st, 2019 only for the Heavy Vehicles which are operational on the road since Dec 2018. Despite that fact that how many days the truck was operational throughout the month, the HVUT would be due by the last day of the following month. Since, Form 2290 is due on any vehicle by the last day of the month following the month of its first use.

Only when you’re truck is going to be used over 5000 miles from the time you place the truck on the road up until June of the following year, you pay taxes on the vehicle on a pro-rated basis by reporting your vehicle to be a Taxable vehicle. (A Partial tax payment calculated from the vehicle’s first used month through June of the following year).

Whereas, if the truck is going to be used under 5000 miles and if you are affirmative about that fact, you may simply go ahead and report your vehicle on a Form 2290 as a Suspended Vehicle ( Meaning it’s basically exempt from paying taxes despite the number of months it’s really been used on the highway)

E-filing your annual HVUT is isn’t a rocket science. It is way simpler than you imagine. We got the most user friendly application setup for you where e you’d be able to fill out your tax return by simply answering few questions during the filing process and rest is been taken care by our application in terms of generating your report in a PDF (Portable Document Format) . Post reviewing your tax PDF, you may electronically transmit your tax return to the IRS for acceptance.

As a result you’d be able to print the proof of filing digitally watermarked by the Internal Revenue Service back in your registered e-mail address within minutes for your documentation purposes. The same copy can be used as the legal proof of filing during your vehicle registration purposes.
