Heavy vehicle use tax season is nearly underway, and it’s time to start filing your 2290.

This year, TSNAmerica is not only continuing to offer over-the-phone HVUT filing, but we are also exclusively offering pre-filing for the HVUT season. Pre-filing your 2290 over the phone is great way to get ahead for the 2015-16 tax season, and it can also ensure that you won’t have to deal with any late penalties down the road.

So don’t wait til the last minute to get it out of the way, call now and get TSNAmerica to pre-file your 2290 today!

What is Form 2290 and Who Needs to File?

IRS Form 2290 is used annually to file Heavy Vehicle Use Tax, or HVUT. You must file Form 2290 and get a stamped copy of your Schedule 1 if a taxable highway motor vehicle is registered, or required to be registered in your name under state, District of Columbia, Canadian, or Mexican law at the time of its first use during the tax period, and if the vehicle will travel over 5,000 miles during the tax year. The tax year begins on July 1, 2015 and runs through June 30, 2016.

Need Some Help? Pre-file Over the Phone!

We know that dealing with all these complicated forms and calculations by yourself can be very frustrating and time consuming. While some may have time to waste fiddling with IRS forms, we understand that for truckers, time is money, and it’s hard to find the time to sit down and file your 2290. That’s why at Truck Services of North America, we’ll take care of the entire E-filing process for you, saving you time, money, and lots of frustration. And we’ll even do it early, which means your return will be at the top of the stack when the IRS begins processing renewals July 1st!

How It Works:

For us to E-file for you, all it takes is a simple five-minute phone call to get all of your relevant information. When you call us you’ll need:
  • Business Contact Information- It must be what the IRS has on record, including business name, phone number, and address
  • EIN- Employer Identification Number
  • VIN- Vehicle Identification Numbers for all of your taxable vehicles
  • Gross Vehicle Weight
  • Payment Information- the IRS no longer accepts credit cards
We’ll also ask you if any of your vehicles are used for special purposes such as for agriculture or logging, as this can affect your tax rates. Then, after we have all of your information we’ll fill out your forms and email you a copy of Form 8453 to sign and send back to us via email, fax, or mail - whichever is the most convenient for you.

After we have all of your information, we’ll immediately pre-file your 2290, and we’ll also send you your stamped Schedule 1 via mail, fax, or email as soon as the IRS processes your return. Just one five-minute phone call, and we’ll take care of the rest for you! For more information on our 2290 E-filing service, visit our 2290 service section here.
