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.

Why do we go for a 2290 Amendment?

Hey truckers it’s once again time for a few pointers and transfer of knowledge about your HVUT Form 2290 filings. The filing season was a hectic one, wasn’t it? Since you are done with filing the returns hope you checked your schedule-1 copies for any mistakes. Any mismatch in the information would end up as a void filing. The recent question which we faced was about “2290 AMENDMENTS”. In this blog, we are going to see when to file an amendment and how to and when not to.

An Amendment is bringing about a change or correction to an existing return. People often confuse between VIN correction and an amendment. The VIN correction needs to be done on a separate filing and this doesn’t relate to anything with the Amendments.

Amendments are basically for reporting two things

  1. When there is an increase in gross weight (truck, trailer, and max load capacity)
  2. When the suspended vehicle exceeds the mileage limit (over 5000 miles)

Low Mileage vehicle credit:  When the taxes are paid full in advance on a vehicle assuming it would go over 5000 miles or 7500 miles but if the truck remains under the mileage limit for exemption during the year, the IRS lets you claim a full refund by the following tax year.

Don’t let Yesterday Take Up Too Much of Today!

Stop-wasting-timeBenjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of our nation said, in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except Death & Taxes. A goal is a dream with a plan and a deadline. So the IRS has set a deadline (Due date) for the tax payers to accomplish this goal (To File & Pay Taxes on time) without any hurdles, meaning skipping the late filing fees and interest.

Do you know what happens when you give a Procrastinator a good idea? Nothing!  Still, few procrastinators out there could think, what if I say, I’m going to be filing my taxes by the time I could, besides I don’t care about deadlines, well they could grant a wish to console the IRS with a proper reason for being late. The worst part is most few ends up paying late fees and interests even though they tried really hard to explain the IRS about their genuine reason, unfortunately it wouldn’t be found to be a reasonable cause ground to justify their inability.
