Why was my Truck Tax 2290 rejected and what should I look for?

 Dealing with the IRS is not this easiest thing in the world. There are a few common mistakes made every day when filing  Form 2290  to pay the  (HVUT)  with the IRS. The most widely made mistake this year has come when the IRS declared that everyone must file with an EIN. For those who are new to tax forms, the EIN is the number that links an individual to a business entity. This posed a big problem for most truck drivers who were more familiar with using their SSN to file the form  2290  and pay their Truck Tax . Many 2290s were rejected, and some were even penalized for late filing because of the time it takes for the number to propagate in the IRS’ database before it is useable. This can be up to two weeks in some cases. No filers will receive their stamped   Schedule 1  until the IRS has processed the payment.

                Business name and EIN mismatch has been another common mistake. This problem is easier solved then the one mentioned earlier. When the IRS processes a form 2290 they match the EIN with the first four letters of the business name in the IRS database. Filer's EIN and business name must match with the IRS’ database. If you have filed a IRS 2290 in the past it is best to check the business name that was previously used, this will save you a lot of time. The IRS has started to dispense EIN numbers to everyone. If your 2290 was rejected because of this reason it is best to contact them to see what they have on file with you.

                Selecting the wrong payment method is also a common mistake when filing your 2290. This can cause your form to be rejected and also can cause you to receive a penalty for late or nonpayment.  The IRS does not accept credit card payments but it does accept three payment methods. They are EFTPS, Check by mail or direct debit. EFTPS is a system for paying federal taxes electronically using the Internet, or by phone using the Voice Response System. EFTPS is offered free by the U.S. Department of Treasury. Choosing EFTPS and not paying through EFTPS is a very common mistake. Most filers choose this as their payment method not knowing exactly what it is. This has caused many individuals to receive letters from the IRS saying that the tax has not been paid.  Remember to pay attention to the payment method you choose. If you choose EFTPS you have to go to their website ( and submit payment through them.

                Remember to watch what category you file your truck under. There is a big difference between suspended and taxable vehicles. This mistake can not only cause your 2290 to be rejected but can also hurt your pockets too. A taxable vehicle is one that is used during the period with a gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more. A suspended vehicle is one that is expected to be used 5,000 miles or less (7,500 miles or less for agricultural vehicles) during the period. Mixing the two up can cause a few problems. If you file a suspended vehicle under taxable you will have to file a credit to get money paid to the IRS back. This can take up to 6 weeks. Filing a taxable vehicle under suspended is the lesser of the two evils which does not come with the same penalty.
