Your 2290 Tax Form And How To File It Fast

Your 2290 Tax Form is Due Friday
The deadline to file your Form 2290 online, or at all, is this Friday. Nothing you didn’t already know at this point, right? Do you know what happens if you don’t file your 2290 tax form in two days? If you don’t, you’ve come to the right place to learn

The Grim Future After Not Filing Your 2290 Tax Form


Like that archetypal schoolyard bully, the IRS wants your money. Unlike that archetypal schoolyard bully, the IRS is going to charge you interest and hassle you every day for the next five months. The simplest way to make sure they shake someone else for coins in during recess is to file your Form 2290 online by Friday, August 31st.


What It Costs To Ignore The 2290 Tax

The penalties for neglecting to pay your 2290 tax dress like small numbers to hide the fact the IRS will be charging you some pretty big numbers. Starting the day you miss filing your 2290 tax form, you’ll owe the IRS a penalty of 4.5% of the total amount of your owed 2290 tax. Essentially, if you flub up on Friday, it’s going to start costing you as soon as Saturday. But wait, there’s more: you’ll also face a monthly fee of 0.5% every month you during which you still have not filed. This particular brand of torture can accrue for up to five months. Lastly, to tie you all up in a nice bow of red tape, the IRS will charge you .54% of additional interest.

Ignoring IRS Form 2290 Is Illegal

Or at least, your rig will be if you don’t file. Filing your 2290 tax form is how you get your stamped Schedule 1. In turn, your Schedule 1 is how you’re able to cross both the Mexican and Canadian borders and renew your tags.


Oh, and there’s the tiny issue of needing to have a valid Schedule 1 if you don’t want to be in even hotter water with the trooper that pulled you over. In a circumstance like that, your registration could be suspended without the presence of a current Schedule 1. Plain and simple, your Schedule 1 is a license to operate, and without it you’re breaking the law.
