FILE YOUR ANNUAL FORM 2290
One Truck or a Whole Fleet
We Got You Covered
If you need to file your Form 2290 for one truck or a whole fleet, the process begins the same. Add your business using the green button in the upper right hand corner of your screen.
What we’ll need is the type of business, business name, EIN, company address, and phone number. Double check that everything is correct, and use our secure e-sign form to sign and save. Once your business is added, you can use our drop-down menu to select your business. You’ll only have to input your business information once, no matter what form you might need in the future.
Then, it’s as simple as selecting the year you need to submit (most people use the current tax year), your VIN, and your taxable gross weight. If you’re unsure what your gross weight is, learn more in our FAQs HERE!
Filing Multiple Heavy Vehicles
If you’re filing for more than one heavy vehicle, we make it easy to include your whole fleet. Simply enter your VIN number in the “VIN” field and include your vehicle’s taxable gross weight. Don’t forget to use our VIN checker to make sure there are no errors inputting your vehicle.
Adding a Logging Vehicle?
If you are including a logging vehicle, make sure to select the button for “Yes!” Logging vehicles get a 25% tax break on their taxes. Don’t leave money on the table!
Finish and Pay
We offer more payment options than any other e-filing provider. We accept all major credit and debit cards and even provide options for paying your federal taxes directly with the IRS.You can either send a check or money order as well as Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW) or Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) options.
All you have to do is select your method of payment and click “Next Step”. Don’t forget to go through your payment summary to ensure your EIN, business name, and number of vehicles are all properly displayed. If there are any discrepancies, use the PREVIOUS STEP button on the bottom of the page to navigate to the right area.
Submitting an Amendment
We offer a variety of services to fix any previous misfiling of your Form 2290. We offer VIN corrections, gross weight changes, and mileage changes if your suspended vehicle has surpassed the 5,000 miles per year limit. Each form easily assists you in fixing any issue you may have had when you originally filed your Form 2290 and gets your status green lit with the IRS in no time flat.
Vin Correction is a simple process that we have streamlined with our smart form systems. Add your business and the year and month you are filing for and click the green “NEXT STEP” button at the bottom right corner of your screen. You will be directed to the VIN correction page.
Select if this is a suspended vehicle if that applies to your heavy vehicle. Make sure you have your original Form 2290 to input the ORIGINALLY REPORTED VIN and then, in the next box, type in the proper VIN as it is displayed on your registration. A taxable gross weight is also required, as is a brief note explaining the VIN change for the IRS records. Most people choose to write something along the lines of, “Typo Error in Original Submission”.
Lastly, check if your vehicle is qualified for a logging vehicle or not and select the blue “ADD VEHICLE” button to include your updated vehicle in the report.
CREATE A REFUND CLAIM
If you have a heavy vehicle that has been sold, destroyed, or stolen and you want to claim a refund for the unused taxes, then you have come to the right place. Tax refunds can be used to help pay the taxes of your new heavy vehicle. All you have to do is choose the end date of your tax year. Most people’s tax date ends in December, unless the IRS has given you special instructions for a new date.
Then you will be directed to fill out the smart form for Form 8849 Schedule 6. This is the IRS form that is used to edit credits on your account. It will be helpful to have your original Form 2290 to help you fill out the vehicle filing details.
The next part, what happened to your vehicle, is important for the IRS to have so they can evaluate your claim. From the dropdown menu, select the loss event that best describes your claim and include the date of the loss event in the next field. An explanation is required for the IRS, which can be anything from, Vehicle stolen at this location or Vehicle was totaled at this location after details of the accident. If you have a police report or insurance documents, you can attach them by dragging and dropping them into the field or browsing your computer for the right forms. Click the blue “ADD VEHICLE” button and make sure the information you input is accurate. Then click the green “NEXT STEP” button.
