Stay compliant with the clearinghouse and the upcoming Tax Deadlines for Form 2290, IFTA and Form 720!

TaxExcise.com has been the most preferred website for E- filing since 2007 and is the first IRS authorized service provider, through the course of all these years we have set our standards to a certain level so as to gain expertise and knowledge about any new updates, which in turn helps us to serve you better.

The start of the New Year naturally brings with it new responsibilities that make us pause and tread with caution. The Trucking Industry has an unstable market and makes us all wonder what the government will do next since New Laws and Regulations are quite common in the trucking business.

A new transportation bill was passed by Congress which will allow the trucking industry to create more jobs and strengthen our transportation system by monitoring and improving highway safety.

The Clearinghouse is a secure online database that will give employers, FMCSA, State Driver Licensing Agencies, and State law enforcement personnel real-time information about CDL driver drug and alcohol program violations, thereby enhancing safety on our Nation’s roadways. This new rule will allow employers as well as the FMCSA mandate drug and alcohol testing programs. This will allow employers to know if the hired driver is capable of performing functions safely while operating a vehicle.

As per the new bill the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse has come into effect from January 6, 2020. Employers, drivers, medical review officers (MROs), substance abuse professionals (SAPs), and consortia/third-party administrators (C/TPAs) must register to access the Clearinghouse. Registration are available at https://clearinghouse.fmcsa.dot.gov/register.

Merry Christmas Folks, E-File Form 2290 before the IRS Shutdown

Christmas time is here or as we like to call it, “The most wonderful time of the year”. As the holiday season is a few days away we at taxexcise.com would like to wish you a Merry Christmas filled with peace, love and Joy. Christmas is all about doing a little something Extra and our truckers do not fail to impress us by doing what they do best which is to spread the Christmas cheer. This holiday season we would like to wish all those away from home busy delivering presents a Merry Christmas, after all the happiest people are those who make others happy.

A message to all our Santa’s of the trucking industry, your license to be in business this Christmas is the IRS Form 2290 which should stay compliant with the IRS regulations in order to deliver your bag of presents. Although the IRS states that your pro-rated Form 2290 is due by December 31st for new vehicles first used in November we strongly recommend you to file before the Christmas holidays begin as the IRS E-file services will not be operational from December 25th until the first week of January.

The IRS may not be available to assist you during this shutdown period however any tax return filed during the Shutdown/Cutover time will be held securely in our servers and the IRS stamped Schedule-1 copy will be made available once the IRS is up and running. Hence do E-file before December 25th if you do require the Schedule-1 copy ASAP.

Our Tax Experts at www.TaxExcise.com / www.Tax2290.com will also be available to assist you even during the Production cutover time. Feel free to reach us @ 1-866-245-3918 or write to us @ support@taxexcise.com you can also drop us a message on the LIVE CHAT option available on our website.

Happy and Safe Trucking!

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.
