Unlike many other tax return deadlines, the deadline on the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290 has not been extended. Every truck driver who travels in and around America will need to file new returns before the actual due date of August 31st. During recent months due to the sudden surge of filings taking place, the IRS has also issued certain guidelines to make this process less cumbersome.
The following are a few key points issued by the IRS for Form 2290.
It’s that time of the year again where every Truck Driver, Owner Operator and Business owner are vigilant and on their toes lining up to complete the Federal excise tax (HVUT) Form 2290. Form 2290 is due now and has to be renewed for the tax year 2020-2021. Tax season is here, and with it comes all the routine paperwork and last minute confusion. The earlier you start with the return by figuring out how much your tax is better. Electronic filing has always been the best way to report form 2290 as it is fast and less time-consuming. With most of the IRS offices still closed Electronically filing form 2290 is the only option in getting your tax return completed on time.
A few words of wisdom a veteran truck driver once said, Never wait until tomorrow for what can be done today. Trucking is a fast-paced business and meeting deadlines have almost become an everyday routine, let it be delivering orders or the time crunch involved in transporting essential consumables. With all these responsibilities on your to-do list, the last thing you wouldn’t need is to miss out on filing a very important tax return. One such crucial deadline would be the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290 which comes by once every year.

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
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.
