Pre-filing For Form 2290 Opens Today!

Happy June. We’re sure you’re looking forward to all the summer fun that comes with this exciting month, even though in the back of your mind you know you have to file your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290 soon. Don’t let it hang over your head like a dark cloud, go ahead and knock it out today by pre-filing, so you can focus on summer fun!

Pre-Filing Your Form 2290


The pre-filing process is fast and easy. Simply head on over to our sister company, ExpressTruckTax and follow their step-by-step guide to complete your Form 2290 in a matter of minutes. 

Once your form is complete your 2290 will be transmitted directly to the IRS once they start accepting forms for the current 2017 Heavy Vehicle Use Tax season on July 1st.

When the season opens and your form is transmitted directly to the IRS you’ll receive a copy of your Schedule 1 via email, as soon as the IRS stamps it. You can also elect to receive your stamped Schedule 1 via text, fax, or postal mail, to send it to your carrier or whoever needs a copy.

As we mentioned above, the filing process is extremely easy. So easy that you don’t even need a computer to file. Download the ExpressTruckTax app to your smartphone or tablet to file at any time, even while you’re out on the road.

You begin by entering your basic business information such as your business name, address, and EIN (Employer Identification Number). A sole proprietor can use their name and home address, but you can’t use your SSN in place of your EIN. If you don’t have an EIN you can apply for one with the IRS online.

Then you’ll enter the following information for your qualifying vehicles such as their VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) and taxable gross weight. Be sure to include your suspended vehicles, meaning vehicles with less than 5,000 miles for the current tax season or 7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles.

The next step involves relaxing as ExpressTruckTax calculates the amount of Heavy Vehicle Use Tax you owe for you. Then you can pay the IRS through direct debit, electronic funds withdrawal, EFTPS, check or money order.  

Before transmitting your Form to the IRS ExpressTruckTax will present you with a summary of your information for your to check for mistakes. 

They’ll also perform a basic audit check on your form to catch for any basic errors. Once the process is complete your form will be transmitted to the IRS on July 1st and you’ll get your stamped Schedule 1 via email.
