So truckers, how is your day going? Well, at our end, it is all moving smooth and fine. More and more people are coming to our website and filing their prorated tax for previous month and for this month. We all know how efiling is a rescue partner for busy truckers.  As we know, the truck tax is calculated based upon the weight of your vehicle, i.e. if your vehicle weighs more than 55,000 pounds during the taxation year, you are liable to pay taxes.

However, today, we are going to talk about the tax calculations that are required to file form 2290.

The following tabular column will explain you:

Filing Taxes: An Overview

So let’s get started, first, you need to classify your vehicle based upon the category mentioned in the tabular column. If you are filing prorated taxes for your vehicle, then you need to calculate for the months your filing. Say, if October you took your vehicle on the highway for the first time, this November 30th is the last date to file your return depending upon the taxable weight. If your vehicle used only for logging and other forestry purpose, the tax rate would differ.

Also, if you are looking forward for an easiest method to get your taxes paid to IRS, you should try a hand with efiling form 2290 through an authentic and authorized online filing service provider: TruckDues.com.

However, if you are trying to take tax filing manually, you would land up spending lot of your time and energy, involving calculations to be done manually, and eventually, there would be errors to be corrected. In short, it is a messy work to be handled manually. Rather, efiling is the better option.

The best part about efiling is you don’t have to do anything manually other than logging in through your registered account and add in your details about your vehicle. Simply check on “Start A New Return”. Click on Heavy Vehicle Used Tax and fill in the details requested by the application. As you are typing, your info related to your vehicle, you will see your calculated taxes in the next slide in seconds. Also, add this point, the calculations done by our inbuilt application is the most accurate result, which will make you visit TruckDues.com.

Once the return is prepared, you can transmit it to IRS yourself and receive your schedule 1 copy in minutes. You can request for a Text Alert or Fax copy depending upon the availability.

On a conclusive note, when we are growing technically, why do we have to be dependent on paper and pen to deal with tax? Come to TruckDues.com and experience anew.

Form 2290:

Form 2290 is an application to file Heavy Vehicle Used Tax. The tax is calculated based upon the weight carried by a truck on a public highway i.e. 55,000 pounds or more. However, if you are wondering why you are supposed to file form 2290, it is believed that these heavy vehicles cause most of the damage to the public highway. And the fund collected through the form is directly funded in the wear and tear of the roads for better transportation.

E-filing is one of the methods to file form 2290 and below we would be discussing the methods of making a payment online. Keep following to know more.

Direct Debit/ Electronic Funds Withdrawal:

The very first method applicable to pay your dues online is Direct Debit/Electronic Funds Withdrawal. The IRS would initiate a payment through the details you had mentioned while transmitting form 2290. Do note you hold responsible to maintain sufficient funds in your account before you make a payment. You can also revoke the payment by getting in touch with U.S. Treasury Financial Agent at 1-888-353-4537 no later than 2 business days before the settlement date.

EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System):

The next payment method up in the line is EFTPS for filing form 2290. Electronic Federal Tax Payment System is an IRS initiative. You have to schedule the payment on your own and it’s your responsibility to ensure a timely payment. To create or manage, you can visit eftps.gov or call 1-800-555-4477. To initiate a payment through this account, the transaction should be initiated at least one business day before the due date.

Check or Money Order:

Well, if you are not comfortable using online payment methods, you can always pay your dues through money order. All you need to do is, print the completed payment voucher 2290-V and mail it to IRS.

Note:

Taxpayers are not allowed to pay their taxes through cash.  The check or money order should be payable to United States Treasury. Add details like name, address, EIN, “Form 2290,” and the date (as entered in Box 3) on your payment. Detach the payment voucher 2290-V and send across the payment. If you choose to file it electronically (e-filing), form 2290 and schedule-1 copy with the payment voucher is not required. Stapling the payment to the voucher or form 2290 should be avoided.
