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.

It’s Fresh year and time to be responsible! Federal Excise Taxes are due January 31, 2020

“Celebrate endings—for they precede new beginnings.” —Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Yet another year to start as time passes by, like an instant we forget to remember things that we ought to do. One of those things is taxes! Yeah, the taxes you hear it right. Amongst the busiest of jobs is what you do constantly on the road to deliver your goods, your prime focus will be on your job but not on anything else. “You need to get it done!” Not to worry, we are here to remind you of anything relating to your trucking needs.

We hope you had a great start of the year and spending time with your families after months-long trips. It’s time to renew your taxes and a total of three things need to be done before the month-end. Do you have a new truck that you bought in the month of December? Well your prorated HVUT Form 2290 taxes are due by January 31st, 2020. And so the Q4 season to renew your IFTA’s and 720 taxes, for the 4th quarter of October 2019 to December 2019 is due by the same date as well. What are you waiting for?

Happy Halloween Tax Deadline! – Don’t Miss These Taxes.

Hundreds of years ago, people dressed up as saints and Ghost and went door to door to trick or treat , which is the origin of Halloween costumes and trick-or-treating, no matter how old you are or how many times you’ve been around the block, the holiday simply never gets old. The kids get the chance to dress up and enjoy the horror and fun of the event and the adults have an excuse to sip on a boo-zy Halloween cocktail.

On Halloween, it is believed that ghosts come back to the earthly world, and out of the fear that people would encounter ghosts if they leave their homes people would wear masks when they leave their homes to avoid being recognized by these ghosts after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them for fellow spirits.

Interestingly, this holiday has come to stay but with some modification and civilization, now Halloween is more of a social event that brings family together while trying to replicate a scenario where they hilariously dress up and scare each other, attend Halloween cocktail party and find the beauty even in the scary and haunted activities of the holiday.

But you know what else is scary? Missing the IRS deadline to file your Excise tax return. Halloween is celebrated on 31st of October every year and so is the deadline fixed by the IRS to file your excise tax return Form 720, IFTA and the Heavy Highway Vehicle Used Tax return Form 2290 for any truck that is put into service in September 2019.

Log on to WWW.TAXEXCISE.COM / WWW.TAX2290.COM to e-file the below tax forms due by October 31, 2019:

  • Quarterly Federal Excise Tax Form 720: to report for the 3rd Quarter of 2019
  • HVUT Form 2290: due ONLY for vehicles First Used in the Month of September 2019, and
  • International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA): to report for the 3rd Quarter of 2019.

Now while we celebrate Halloween, with all the dress Costume, Trick and Treating, the Lamp and the Ghost including the candies and all the sugar rush that is involved, we should remember to get our excise returns filed on time to avoid the horror of dealing with the IRS penalty and Interest for late filing and payment.

In the spirit of Halloween, we at www.TaxExcise.com would like to remind you that we are dedicated to make your Halloween celebration this year a little less scary, with our online application giving you the opportunity to file your return easily at the comfort of your home or office, giving you one less thing to worry about during this Halloween season, and with our Tax Expert always at your disposal you are guaranteed of a smooth and hassle-free experience with us.
