The pre-filing season is in full-force, Trucking Nation! And with great e-filing comes great responsibility. We have been talking all about how-to’s and the benefits of efiling and pre filing, but we have never touched the topic “what to do and not to do” before, during and after the tax season. In short, during pre filing and after the tax season is over.

If you spend a little more time preparing HVUT, you can save yourself from the headache of filing an amendment or correcting a rejected return. And here at we want to make sure you have everything you need to e-file successfully!

Here are the Do’s and Don’ts of E-filing your 2290!

Do Pre-file:

This is offering pre-filing for the 2015-16 tax year throughout June! If you choose to pre file form 2290 with us, you are not only done with your HVUT for the year, but you are availing 10% discount on efiling service fee that you pay us.

Once the tax season begins on July 1 2015 and the IRS begins accepting 2290’s, we’ll securely transmit your return for you, making schedule 1 copy available, so you don’t have to worry about it.

Don’t Wait till the last date:

With pre filing available for our customers across the United States of America, why would you want to wait till until the last minute to file form 2290? Well, it is not a good idea! Especially if your return is rejected and you waited until the last minute, you risk missing the deadline. That follows with penalties for not filing on time. So get it done early so you’ll still have time even if you make some mistakes.

Do Maintain Records:

You need to keep detailed records of your trip and mileage, not because is it required, it could also help you in identifying your vehicle as a suspended vehicle. When you file for suspended vehicles, you need to prove that you’re under the mileage limit to the IRS. So it is good keep everything in order, because you never know when you’ll need it.

Don’t Put off Your Trip Sheets Yet:

Like we said, if you plan to file a suspended vehicle, you’ll need proof, and your trip sheets, in addition to being required, help to accomplish the fact. Not to mention that keeping good records is always smart when you’re filing any sort of taxes. So maintain them till the show is over, or you will land up forgetting the exact miles and that can come back to bite you later.
