Important E-filing Notice: The IRS e-file system is currently shut down beginning Thursday, December 26, 2019 for year-end maintenance and will not be available until they open for e-filing in January 2020. The IRS hasn’t announced the opening day for e-filings but they are usually operational from early-to mid-January.

You can still e-file your tax returns using our website during the Business shut down, we’ll hold your return and transmit it to the IRS when they open for e-filing. But if you need the acknowledgments during the shutdown, we suggest you to paper file your tax returns instead.

The IRS may not be available to assist you during the shutdown period but Taxexcise.com and its Tax Experts will be available to assist you even during the Production cutover time.

Happy and Safe Trucking!

The IRS e-file shut-down is scheduled to begin December 26, 2019, e-file your Form 2290 for November used vehicles now!

e-file Form 2290 before IRS shutdown to receive stamped sch.1 copy within minutes.

Does Santa use a reindeer or a truck? We believe that our truckers are Santa Clauses in disguise. This holiday season with Christmas around the corner we would like to appreciate the trucking community who would be spending this busy season in making millions of families happy, after all the best gift around the Christmas tree is the presence of family wrapped in love, we at Taxexcise.com would like to wish our Santa’s a Very Merry Christmas.

And we would also like to remind you to not miss out on the December 31st deadline for any new vehicles first used in November.

We also hope that you are aware that just after Christmas the IRS will be shutting down operations for a routine maintenance, so be sure to file your 2290’s before their downtime.

The IRS E-file Servers will be shut down for Year-End Maintenance every year by Christmas to prepare their systems for the upcoming Tax Year’s Filing. The IRS has posted it on their official website www.irs.gov that the MeF Production Shutdown/Cutover is scheduled to begin at 11:59 a.m., Thursday, December 26, 2019, to prepare the system for the upcoming 2020 Filing Season.

During the Shutdown period, the IRS will not accept or process any E-filed tax return. Though the IRS servers will be down, www.Taxexcise.com / www.Tax2290.com – Product of ThinkTrade Inc., will continue to accept tax returns. The tax returns that are filed during the Shutdown/Cutover time will be held securely on our servers and will be submitted to the IRS once their Servers are up and running, which is expected ONLY by the first week of January 2020.

Truckers, Trucking Companies & Tax Preparers who have returns to file for the Month of December are advised to E-file their Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form (HVUT) Form 2290 before Christmas Weekend so that you won’t be bothered by the E-file Shutdown.

The IRS may not be available to assist you during the shutdown period but Taxexcise.com and its Tax Experts will be available to assist you even during the Production cutover time. Feel free to reach our Team @ 1-866-245-3918 or write to us @ support@taxexcise.com or ping them using the LIVE CHAT option available on the website.

Now e-filing Form2290 is even simpler with our new “Clone Return Option” that lets you complete your filing in just one click.

With the Christmas holiday season upon us, it’s about time to register your vehicles and renew the license plates to hit back to the public highway doing what you really best at, delivering America all they need to celebrate Christmas Eve. Christmas Eve is always a time of family and we wish every trucker out there gets some family time this Christmas eve.

To register the vehicle at the DMV, one needs to be up to date on the Form 2290 sch.1 which can be obtained by filing HVUT Form 2290 and the best way to do it is electronically that’s fast, accurate and very simple. If you’re a returning user to TaxExcise.com, you would attest to the fact but if you’re setting yourself up for the first time with us, you will know e-filing is the right approach from your firsthand experience.

Now the question is whether your taxes should be paid in full or pro-rated? This depends on the first used month of your vehicle, if you have used your vehicle on the public highway for the first time in the month of November 2019, you would only be paying the partial taxes also known as pro-rated tax for the period November 2019 – June 2020. The deadline to pay this pro-rated tax due to the IRS is the last day of the following month from the first month of use. Meaning, December 31st is the deadline to report your November used vehicles on the Form 2290 and pay the pro-rated tax due. And it is also advisable to have these vehicles reported before the long holidays so you could beat the holiday rush and also avoid any last-minute hiccups.

If you had missed your Form 2290 annual renewal by August 31st for your existing fleet, you’re already past due the deadline and should be paying your tax due in full to the IRS at the earliest possible for the tax period July 2019 – June 2020 to avoid hefty penalties levied by the IRS for late filing and late payment.    

We at www.TaxExcise.com / www.Tax2290.com have constantly kept introducing new features that allow our users to have a less time consuming and user-friendly experience while using our website to e-file their HVUT Form 2290. One such feature newly introduced is the “Clone Return” option that allows you to duplicate your previously filed tax return and saves you the hassle of re-entering the same information all over again. Now e-filing Form2290 is even simpler with cloning option that lets you complete your filing in just one click.

We understand our customer’s needs and we work through it to reach our every customer’s level of satisfaction, there is no Full Stop in serving you with our best high standards. Feel free to reach us @ 866-245-3918 or write to us @ support@taxexcise.com or Ping our Tax Experts using the LIVE CHAT Option on the Website.
