How to File Form 2290 Easily?
Form 2290 is a Federal Excise Tax that is imposed on heavy trucks that operate on public highways. Any truck that weighs 55,000 pounds or more and used for 5000 miles
or more is subjected to this tax. The federal tax is collected annually and is utilized for the construction and maintenance of highways.
What is Schedule 1 Copy?
When you file your Form 2290, the IRS authenticates the return and sends an acknowledgment receipt, this is referred to as Schedule 1 copy. This copy will have the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) of the truck that you own and register with the IRS. The Schedule 1 copy serves as a proof of payment of your taxes. Without this copy, the DMV will not renew your tags, and IFTA, IRP or UCR will not renew the registration of your truck. If you’re audited, your stamped Schedule 1 copy will serve as a proof that you’ve paid your taxes.
Filing Form 2290
IRS form 2290 can be filed via 2 methods: Paper filing and e-filing. When filing for a single vehicle or multiple vehicles, it is advisable to use an authorized e-file service provider since the IRS does not allow e-filing of Form 2290 on IRS.gov. When you e-file your IRS returns, you can get the stamped Schedule 1 copy within a few minutes of IRS acceptance.
