Mistakes happen all the time with vehicle identification numbers (VIN). After all, there are up to 17 characters you need to get right. It’s also easy to make mistakes if you’re in a hurry. Fortunately, correcting wrong VIN numbers is easy and it’s part of the services we offer.
A Message from Molly
As I was doing my research of all things E-Form 2290, I knew it would take a lot of work. When reading about the Highway Trust Fund, I wondered, “Does the person who wrote this even understand what it all means?!” It’s crazy complicated, but have no fear! You have me to help you through it! I have researched and sorted through all the mumbo jumbo and will be discussing only what you need to know about the Highway Trust Fund.
As if the IRS doesn’t require enough taxes, here’s another one, the IRS Form 2290! The IRS and your tag office both say you have to file the IRS Form 2290 and pay the IRS 2290 Tax. Even WE say you have to file the Form 2290, and pay the IRS 2290 Tax. But have you ever just stopped and thought to yourself and said, “Self, what exactly is the Form 2290? And where do my IRS 2290 Tax dollars go?!!” I am here to help answer that!
The 2013/2014 Form 2290 is ready to e-file now! You can prefile, and get one more thing off your to-do list. We will email you the Stamped Schedule 1 the moment it’s issued by the IRS.
This year electronic and paper forms are both on track and on time, but there is one tricky thing to keep track of. How you file (on paper or electronic) will effect your due date.
Electronic (also known as e-filed) forms and taxes will be due Tuesday September 3rd, 2013.
Paper forms and taxes must be postmarked Saturday August 31st, 2013.
We just got back from the Great West Truck Show in Las Vegas. Thanks to everybody we met for making that a fun experience!!
And the Winners Are…
The IRS has canceled the Scheduled shut down originally Scheduled for Monday July 22. The IRS will be open, issuing Stamped Schedule 1’s and answering phones.
There are several things in life I want fast: fast trucks, fast food, and fast time with the in-laws (it’s never fast enough…). Heck, I even like e-filing Form 2290 because it IS fast. That’s the whole point of it. But, faster isn’t always what you want when it comes to taxes. You want an easy-to-use website, accuracy, and an all-American customer support team. All those things are more important than just “fast.” It’s just an added bonus that you don’t have to drive to the IRS office and wait in line to file your HVUT trucker’s tax- because that’s NOT fast…
Back in February, the IRS sent an email about how they don’t use email. Talk about needing IRS Notices decoded!! But this notice is super important because it deals with fraud, identity theft and a thing called, “Phishing.”
Ever wonder what happens if you choose to pay 2290 taxes with a bank account debit, and the transaction fails?? If everything goes according to plan, the US Treasury will notify you in writing with the notice below. Pay special attention because this comes from the US Treasury and not the IRS.
Penalties and Interest are a bummer. Sometimes it’s unavoidable, sometimes it’s not that bad, and some times you can get out of penalties. But it’s always a bummer to get this piece of paper in the mail.
It’s usually a 5 page notice, depending on how many trucks you have, and how complicated the math gets. If you get one of these in the mail, don’t despair! We’re here to help – and the news isn’t always a grim as you might think.
