IRS Efile Servers will be Shutdown in next Couple of Weeks!

imagesHoliday Season is right around the corner, so is the Year end. January 1st will be the first blank page of a 365-page book & December 31st will the last page of 366-page book. Let’s start writing good & positive things on the new book for which we have to complete old book without any back logs. Let’s carry only good memories & happy moments to the upcoming year, not the incomplete things we leave behind in 2016.

Taxes are one thing that we always want to complete on time as it adds Excruciating actions attached to it. There are several Taxes that needs to be filed on or before December 31st, One such Tax is Federal Excise tax Form 2290 (HVUT) for vehicles first used in the month of November. Though E-filing was introduced to lessen the burden for Tax Payers, every year the IRS will shut down their E-file Servers towards the end of the year for Maintenance. During the shutdown they will neither process any Tax returns nor will they issue acknowledgements. Continue reading

A letter from Tax Form 2290


Form 2290

Internal Revenue Service

U.S. Department of Treasury

Washington, D.C.



Heavy Vehicle Taxpayers

United States of America


Dear taxpayers,

SUBJECT: Extension of HVUT return filing & Payment due date

If you have already written about your heavy vehicles on me and dropped me safely at my home through post or the internet before noon on August 31, 2012, thanks a ton. You can now happily drive your trucks until next June without any legal troubles.

The e-file system at my home in the IRS was shut down for some maintenance activity from 1.00 p.m. on August 31 through September 4, 2012. In order to minimize the impact of inconvenience on affected e-file taxpayers alone, the heads of my family have decided to extend the time for filing me to my home until September 7, 2012. So, for those of you who missed to file me before 1.00 p.m. on August 31, can now do so and pay the applicable HVUT amounts due to my family without any penalty or late fee until the 7th of September, 2012. You can do so at tax 2290 for convenient, easy and fast filing and get your stamped schedule 1 copy within minutes. If you don’t, you have to face the appropriate penalties and interests after the 7th.

I sincerely hope that there are no confusions pertaining to filing me on time now.


Yours truly,

Form 2290

P.S. Oh dear paper filers, this isn’t for you. Your deadline was August 31, 2012.
