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? Go ahead and report them now instead of rushing up at the last moment. E-file through www.Taxexcise.com  / www.Tax2290.com  to avoid complicated tax calculations and confusing tax Jargon’s that comes with these Tax Forms.

Also, the IRS servers are still under shutdown for server maintenance since December 26, 2019, but they will resume services starting January 7th, 2020. And any returns filed during the time break and in the next couple of days, your schedule-1 copies will be processed on January 7th, 2020.

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.

PTIN Renewal or First-time PTIN applicants can obtain a PTIN online from the link https://rpr.irs.gov/. But if you prefer to use the paper option, use Form W-12, IRS Paid Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) Application (PDF). Contact the PTIN helpline for PTIN related questions.

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!

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.
