Who must file IRS Form 2290?
You must file IRS Form 2290 and Schedule 1 for the tax 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 the vehicle has a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more.
What is required to file Form 2290?
You need the details of your business - Business Name (Sole proprietor can use their
legal name) and address, EIN (Employer Identification Number) , details of the authorized
signatory. Please note: you must have the EIN to file Form 2290. If you don't have
one, read the details from this blog post.
You need the details of your vehicle - Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and Gross Weight of the vehicle
If you are going to pay the IRS by direct debit (we strongly recommend it), have the routing number and the account number ready.

Enter your Business information: Enter your business name and EIN number accurately.
Choose the first used month and the tax year: The tax year for Form 2290 starts in July each year and ends on the last day of June the following year. The form 2290 is based on the first-use month of the vehicle. For example, if your vehicle was first used in September, you have to file your Form 2290 by the end of October.
Enter your Vehicle Information: Begin by entering the VIN, Gross Weight of the vehicle, define if it is a logging or non-logging vehicle (Logging vehicles are primarily used for exclusively transporting products harvested from the forest and are registered with the state agency as such). The table below will show the taxes based on the weight of the vehicle and for the complete tax year. The taxes will be prorated if you are filing for a partial year.
TAXABLE GROSS WEIGHT
HEAVY VEHICLE USE TAX RATE
LOGGING VEHICLE RATE
Below 55,000 lbs
55,000 to 75,000 lbs
$100 plus $22 per 1000 lbs over 55,000 lbs
$75 plus $16.5 per 1000 lbs over 55,000 lbs
Over 75,000 lbs
There is no tax if you are going to be driving the vehicles for less than 5000 miles
(7500 miles if you have the agriculture number plates).
IRS Payment Options:
We will figure out the taxes for you! There are several options available to pay the HVUT taxes with the IRS: Direct Debit or EFW: IRS will debit directly from your bank
account. If you would like to choose this option, keep the routing number and the
account number ready.
EFTPS: You have to schedule the payment to the IRS by going to
Check/Money Order: The IRS also supports Check/Money Order if
you have can schedule it in time. We strongly advise our Canadian customers
to use this option as EFW option may not work for Canadian banks.
Just a reminder, if you choose Direct Debit (EFW) as a payment method, the IRS will not process your return during the weekends, or
on federal holidays, but on the next business day.
Transmit to the IRS:
You need to electronically sign the return by entering any 5 digit number of your
choice before you send it to the IRS.

$9.90?! That’s it? Fantastic. This is the first time in 18 years I haven’t had to
go to the IRS office. I love you guys!

Thank you so much for your help. You made it real easy.
- Jamar T, New York
Last time I used some other provider and it took over a week to file my return.
With you it took less than an hour to file a fleet of 100 trucks. Where were you
all this time? I am glad I found you.
- Lisa N, Tennessee
I appreciate your time. It’s great to have this kind of support!
- Mario M, Oregon
This is GREAT software. Great. It’s so self-explanatory. I’m very impressed. It’s
like the TurboTax* of 2290s.
- Vernice M, Oklahoma
This is the first time I’m doing this and it’s super easy. I called the other guys
and nobody answered the phone. You guys picked up right away. So far I’m very happy
and I will be recommending you to my friends. Thank you so much!
- Joe G, Ohio
Thank you so much for your help. I overpaid with ***2290 and they wanted to charge
me to fix my VIN number. Not only did you guys let me E-File my VIN correction,
but you let me do it for FREE. I can’t thank you enough!
- Hank P, Pennsylvania
...Wow, I wasn’t expecting anyone to actually answer the phone. I called three other
guys and nobody answered. You picked up after the first ring. I wish your company
could do ALL my taxes!
