Why E-file HVUT Form 2290 instead of paper filing?
For years you have filed your 2290 by filling out the paper Form 2290 and then either
physically taking it into the field office or mailing it back to the IRS. Until recently the
IRS even mailed the form right to your doorstep, making it even easier to paper file. So
now why would you want to E-file instead of paper file?
There are many benefits to E-filing. First, the IRS requires anyone filing a return with
25 or more trucks to E-file and encourages everyone, even single truck owners to E-file.
It’s quicker; you can file right from the comfort of your own home, anytime, seven days a
week. You no longer have waste time by going to the IRS office and waiting in those long
lines! You save money, no need for gas, no need for a stamp and you are saving the trees
by going paperless.
There’s also no more waiting to receive your Stamped Schedule 1 because when you E-
file you will receive it within minutes. It is a simple process, when you choose an online
program that is easy to navigate from beginning to end. You also want to choose an
online service provider that offers great US based customer support via phone, email
and chat. That way you are able to be assisted in a manner that suits you.
When you E-file, it is easy to keep track of your tax filing process, because you will have
an online record of your previous year filings. You will have an automatic online record
of your 2290 returns from year to year. You will no longer need to re enter the VIN
numbers each year, because they will already be there from the previous year, again
saving you time in the filing process.
Still not convinced that E-filing is the way to go? How about having the ability to make
VIN corrections instantly, online, free of charge? What normally happens if you type in
or submit the wrong VIN and don’t realize it before you submit your return? You would
have to file an amendment and it would take time for it to process. But when you choose
an online service provider, like ExpressTruckTax.com, who offers FREE Online VIN
Corrections, you will be able to correct your VIN free of charge with just a few clicks. E-
Filing again saves you both time and money!
