  • Q: What Is My First-Used Month?

A: Well, for most people, the default answer is July. The HVUT tax year opens July 1st. So this means that the first-used month for all renewals is automatically July. Even if you’re filing in August or September, the first-used month must still be set back to July if you’re vehicle was driven that month. The only time you’d select a later month is if the vehicle was first time bought on road later in the year or the next year.

Q. What Is The Taxable Gross Weight Of My Vehicle?

A: The taxable gross weight of your vehicle can be determined by adding three numbers together.

1. The unloaded (empty tare) weight of the vehicle, plus

2. The unloaded weight of any trailers customarily attached to the vehicle, and

3. The weight of the maximum load customarily carried in the vehicle and/or attached trailers.

The sum of these three figures is your taxable gross weight.

Q: Does The IRS Take Credit Cards?

A: No, you cannot pay tax to the IRS through your credit card, but we do! You can pay our fee via credit card. IRS still offers three convenient methods of payment: Direct Debit, EFTPS, and Check or Money order. Direct Debit, also called Electronic Funds Withdrawal, is the fastest way to pay, but it’s only available to E-filers! You provide your bank account & routing number, and the IRS initiates a Direct Debit from your bank account.

EFTPS is a free service through the U.S Dept. of the Treasury, but you need to have an account or register with the system 5-7 days prior to when you need to make a payment. Also, the payment must be scheduled at least 1 business day prior to the payment due date!

Finally, if you pay by check or money order, you’ll get your Schedule 1 back even on a weekend or holiday! Just don’t forget to mail your 2290-V payment voucher with your check, but don’t staple them together!

Q: Why Am I Entering Two Methods Of Payment?

A. Well, you need to pay IRS the tax due for the year through the mentioned payment methods. Another payment is done through your credit card, as the fee for filing, reporting and submitting form 2290 via Tax2290.

Q: How Do I Make VIN Corrections?

A: The answer: easily! If your return is rejected for a VIN error, such as a duplicate filing error, we’ll help you find the mistake, fix it, and retransmit it to the IRS for free! Only if you E-filed with us! If you made a VIN error, but the IRS accepted your return, then you can quickly E-file a Form 2290 Amendment.

Simply log back in as a Returning User, click “Start” under 2290 Amendment, then “Start” under Form 2290 VIN correction. You’ll receive your updated, stamped Schedule 1 as soon as the IRS accepts the correction!

Of course, we cannot possibly cover all the topics to graduate you in one shot. So if you’re ready to graduate in efiling class, keep reading the sequel of Efiling- Class II
