Form 2290 Payment Options

We will accurately calculate how much Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) you owe. Then you can choose one of the following options to pay that amount to the IRS.

Direct Debit or Electronic Funds Withdrawal(EFW):

You can pay your balance due to the IRS via Direct Debit or Electronic Funds Withdrawal by authorizing the IRS to debit the amount you owe from your bank account. In order to allow the IRS to debit your account, you will need to provide your bank account number and routing number. This information can be found on one of your checks.

Carefully enter your information, because if your banking information is as little as one character off the IRS will not be able to debit your account. Also, make sure you have enough funds in your account to cover the payment.

To cancel a payment contact IRS E-File Payment Services at 1-888-353-4537 at least 2 business days before the payment date. This option is only available if you
e-File Form 2290.

EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System):

The IRS accepts payments via EFTPS. To complete your payment using this method you will be directed to http://www.eftps.gov or you can call 1-800-555-4477 to create a free account. It may take up to 10 business days to create the account. You will be responsible for scheduling your EFTPS payment.

Schedule your payment at least by 8 PM the day before the deadline in order to give the IRS enough time to collect the funds by the deadline. The IRS will debit the funds from the bank account information that you provide.

Check or Money Order:

You can also pay the amount of HVUT you owe with a Check or Money Order. If you choose this option you will need to print your completed payment voucher, 2290-V, from page 11 of your completed 2290 Form and mail it to the IRS with your payment.

  • Make your check or money order payable to the United States Treasury. Write your name, address, EIN, 'IRS Form 2290', and date (as entered in box 3) on your payment.
  • Detach your 2290-V and send it with your payment. If you filed electronically, do not send your Form 2290 or stamped Schedule 1 with your payment voucher.
  • Also, do not staple your payment voucher, payment, or Form 2290 together.
  • Send your payment and 2290-V voucher to:

       Internal Revenue Service,
       P.O. Box 804525,
       Cincinnati,
       OH 45280-4525.
