Why e-File?

It’s a question we’re often asked at 2290Tax.com. Why bother e-filing your 2290 IRS form? On the surface, e-filing sounds more complicated than submitting your 2290 the traditional way.

We started 2290Tax.com because we believe truckers should be on the road, not wasting their time and money standing in lines at the IRS or waiting for their Stamped Schedule 1 to turn up in the mail. With e-filing, you can get your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax submitted and paid within minutes, and gain access to your Stamped Schedule 1 within an hour.

Your Truck and “Date of First Use”

I’m not using my truck – do I still file a 2290?

Form 2290 is a USE tax, not an OWNERSHIP tax. That means if you’re not using your truck you don’t file a 2290 for that truck. But it gets tricky, you need to be careful of two things.

2015 IRP Annual Meeting: Day 3

2015 IRP Annual Meeting – Day 3: Wednesday May 20, 2015

A portion of the meeting today was broken down into three separate round-table discussion topics. The hope was that by splitting the one large group up into several smaller groups, that more questions could be asked and answered, and that they could cover more topics quickly. And it seems that the process was a success. The first topics we covered in the round tables had to do with CVSA and Electronic Inspections, Electronic Credentials, CCMTA and AMVA.
