1.What is VIN Correction?

Vehicle Identification Number is a 17 character unique identification sequence that is a combination of both numbers and letters. The VIN is used by the IRS for identification purposes. The VIN is a distinct code offered to every vehicle, so two different vehicles cannot have the same VIN.

If you have already filed your Form 2290 return with the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and the IRS has accepted it, you have to file an Form 2290 VIN correction to provide the correct VIN in your return.
