In an era when smartphones
and tablets have taken over, filing tax returns through paper is slowly going
extinct and completing tax returns online is the need of the hour as it is
easier, precise and efficient. The less complicated your tax return is, the
more rudimentary is the preparation for it.
The slight panicky feeling that happens when deadlines approach and start to accumulate is every tax payer’s worst nightmare. These tax deadlines happen once every year or every quarter and failure to address them results in penalties and interest from Uncle Sam.
It’s time now to put on your
thinking hat and have these tax returns completed in order to stay compliant
with the IRS. A Few Tax forms that are Due this month would namely be:-
Form 2290: The Federal
Excise Tax Form 2290 also known as Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) is due for renewal
for the current 2020 tax year. And the deadline to report any new Vehicles first
used in the month of June is due by July31st.
IFTA: International Fuel Tax Agreement is due by July 31st for the second quarter of 2020.
There are 125 more days for the year to end but only 4 more days for the time to file HVUT returns to come to a halt. This means that if you own a taxable vehicle of gross weight 55, 000 pounds or more, you need to file form 2290 on the same for the tax year 2012-2013 to the IRS before the 31st of August, 2012. It usually is the end of the day. But this time, the IRS has announced that it will be shutting down its e-file system for maintenance activities by 1.00 PM EDT on 31st August, 2012.
The last minute filing heat has already started spreading and the deadline has come further down from the EOD of August 31 to 1.00 PM of the same day. So, compile details about your vehicle(s) like VIN, date first used on public highway, gross taxable weight etc and sit before a computer connected to the internet. Key in ‘www.tax2290.com’ in the address bar of your internet explorer and you will be routed to a safe on-line tax filing center. Continue reading →
Updated as of September 28, 2011 Congress has passed and the President has signed an extension of the Heavy Highway Vehicle Use tax through September 30, 2012. By November 30, 2011, taxpayers will be required to file Form 2290 for vehicles first used in July, August, September and October 2011. Although the Form 2290 is expected to be available in late October, the IRS will not provide a stamped (receipted) Schedule 1 until November 1, 2011. In the meantime, you can still pay your 2010 excise tax, get your 2011 tags and register your new or used vehicle. Continue reading →
