As the tax season has come to an end and with the COVID situation weakening we at TaxExcise.com would like to keep you informed about a few recent updates. The Internal Revenue Service has sent a notice to states regarding a delay in processing Form 2290 payments. The notice stated that due to the ongoing situation taxpayers who filed a paper Form 2290 to report and pay the highway use tax for the current tax year period July 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021, can expect a significant delay in receiving their IRS-stamped Form 2290 Schedule 1.

The IRS enhances “Get My Payment” online application to help Americans track their coronavirus-prompted stimulus payments.

Under the CARES Act, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has been issuing Economic Impact Payments (stimulus checks) as part of the economic relief effort. The Internal Revenue Service announced significant enhancements to the “Get My Payment” tool to deliver an improved and smoother experience for Americans eligible to receive Economic Impact Payments.

The enhancements, which started last month, adjusted several items related to the online tool, which debuted on April 15. The additional changes will help millions of additional taxpayers with new or expanded information and access to adding direct deposit information.

“We delivered Get My Payment with new capabilities that did not exist during any similar relief program, including the ability to receive direct deposit information that accelerates payments to millions of people,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. “These further enhancements will help even more taxpayers. We urge people who haven’t received a payment date yet to visit Get My Payment again for the latest information. IRS teams worked long hours to deliver Get My Payment in record time, and we will continue to make improvements to help Americans.”

“We encourage people to check back in and visit Get My Payment,” Rettig added. “These enhancements will help many taxpayers. By using Get My Payment now, more people will be able to get payments quickly by being able to add direct deposit information.”

How to use Get My Payment

Available only on IRS.gov, the online application is safe and secure to use. Taxpayers need a few pieces of information to quickly obtain the status of their payment and, where needed, provide their bank account information. Having a copy of their most recent tax return can help speed the process.

For taxpayers to track the status of their payment, this feature will show taxpayers the scheduled delivery date by direct deposit or mail and the last four digits of the bank account being used if the IRS has direct deposit information. They will need to enter basic information including:

  • Social Security number
  • Date of birth, and
  • Mailing address used on their tax return.

Taxpayers needing to add their bank account information to speed receipt of their payment will also need to provide the following additional information:

  • Their Adjusted Gross Income from their most recent tax return submitted, either 2019 or 2018
  • The refund or amount owed from their latest filed tax return
  • Bank account type, account and routing numbers

Get My Payment cannot update bank account information after an Economic Impact Payment has been scheduled for delivery. To help protect against potential fraud, the tool also does not allow people to change bank account information already on file with the IRS.

You never fail to amaze us, be safe out there while delivering life’s necessities!

Our heroes never fail to amaze us. If they stop the world stops. Truck drivers brave the new outbreak to deliver goods and services around the country. Though most of the highways are shut down deliveries of groceries and basic supplies have hit an all-time high, with shoppers piling up on supplies. Truckers are working flat-out to keep stores and businesses stocked as consumers worry about riding out home quarantines. Trucking companies are running full throttle to keep up with supply which means as always drivers are needed to stay on the road.

Our greatest strength is our Truckers, we take this moment in appreciating all the efforts taken risking amidst the COVID-19 in delivering the goods/ commodities for the common pubic by staying safe and driving safe, THANK YOU.

We also like to keep you posted that the regular deadline for filing Federal Income Tax Returns has been extended three months, the new deadline to file income tax extension is July 15, 2020, due to the coronavirus outbreak. However, there has been no confirmation on the HVUT Form 2290 filing and tax payment deadline extensions, or for the quarterly federal excise tax form 720 and IFTA. Do tune in or check back with us for any recent updates on tax deadlines. So it would be safer to not miss the current tax filing deadline March 31, 2020, to file Pro-rated Form 2290 due only for vehicles first used in February 2020 since July 1, 2019.
