IRS Gives Additional Time to Taxpayers and Preparer’s Affected by Hurricane Sandy

The Internal Revenue Service today announced that it is granting taxpayers and tax Preparer’s affected by Hurricane Sandy until Nov. 7 to file returns and accompanying payments normally due today.  The relief applies to taxpayers and tax Preparer’s in an area affected by Hurricane Sandy or otherwise impacted by the storm that hit the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States this week.

This relief primarily applies to businesses whose payroll and excise tax returns and payments are normally due today. No action is required by the taxpayer; this relief is automatic. Regular federal tax deposits are due according to current rules. However, the IRS notes that if taxpayers or tax practitioners receive a penalty notice for this period, they can contact the IRS at the number on the notice to request penalty abatement due to reasonable cause on account of the storm.

IRS expects to grant additional filing and payment relief as qualifying disaster declarations are issued by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Tax Excise is now offering a flat 10% discount on all excise tax forms filing fee filed through us in a support of taxpayers and Preparer’s affected by hurricane sandy and storm. Just apply the coupon code: “ELECTION2012” to avail the discount. Not to forget, this is valid only through Nov 6, 2012. This would also enroll you automatically in our promotional offer to get a chance to WIN a FREE “iPod Nano”.

Salutation for the women in trucking!!!

5% (or more) of the composition of the trucking industry in America are women. For the convenient advantages in the industry or for any other reason, more and more women are stepping to run the wheels each year. People who say ‘trucking is not where women land up for it is too rough and stressful for them’, are considered mere ignorant of today’s world. Women have been in trucking from as long as there have been trucks. Lillie Elizabeth Drennan, apart from being the first lady to be Commercial driver licensed in 1929, was also the first ever woman to take ownership of trucking business. She operated her business successfully for nearly 24 years despite long routes, rough roads and stress from the opposition. Her legacy has inspired many, especially women, to follow her steps into trucking industry to take forward driving as a career.

Women share the dreams and difficulties of the roads as far as driving trucks is concerned and the industry wouldn’t be running the same way without these dedicated women of wheels. Tax2290 salutes all women drivers for their courage, patience and power that they possess to run the wheels on roads. As owners, they now can file form 2290 for their heavy truck’s heavy vehicle use tax online, so fast and safely. It doesn’t take much time to fill in the IRS form 2290 requisite details and the filers would be returned with Schedule 1 copy within minutes.

Women in Trucking has been working towards the encouragement of employment of women in the trucking industry, promotion of their accomplishments and minimization of obstacles faced by these women. They have been actively working for the motivation of the transportation industry and their women-related activities chiefly. Tax2290 is a proud member of the Women In Trucking Association extending our support to help them provide the necessary resources to encourage women having goals inclined towards the trucking industry. We also heartily congratulate Ellen Voie, President/CEO and founder of the Women In Trucking Association, who has been honored by the White House in “ordinary Americans doing extraordinary things” through its “Champions of Change” initiative on Aug 6th, 2012. There’s another date of high cardinality to truck owners, 31st August, 2012, which is the last date to file HVUT tax returns.For more information on due date extension due to Labor Day weekend IRS shut down, click here.

“e-file makes life easy”, says an experienced Tax professional

The doors of Tax2290 were wide open, this time offline, in position for the much awaited entry of an otherwise busy tax professional (TP hereafter). In a blue jean and white formal shirt he came in and took his interview-ready clean seat. “Sorry for eating up some of your precious time this tax season”, said one of our Tax2290 professional (T2290P hereupon) with a gentle smile.

TP: Oh not really! e-file makes it pretty easy these days.

T2290P: Happy to be servicing professionals like you any day. So, everyone’s talking about going paperless including the IRS. What does this mean for you?

TP: Of course, it means tax returns would be filed electronically instead of filling out in papers and mailing them to the IRS for processing. Now that’s not as easy as just said. It involves a lot of overhead related to postage charges, errors and cycles of corrections. The IRS has made it mandatory that any tax professional who prepares 11 or more tax returns has to electronically file all of those returns. This also means that your tax preparer is as well getting transitioned to being paperless as well. More and more tax professionals are storing their back-up documentation and past tax returns electronically as PDF’s. So, e-filing for clients on websites like yours makes our life as tax professionals so easy and I only wish this was available years ago itself for I would not have seen my dad getting troubled with papers and tension all around him. (Smiles)

T2290P: What would you point out as advantages of e-filing to clients who come to you or in general to those who file Form 2290 themselves online?

TP: You go green immediately, contributing your little part to pause the green-eating society. The ability to file your tax returns round the clock throughout the week right at your desk at home makes life very comfortable and easy. The speed of the entire tax return process dramatically increases with e-filing over paper due to advanced internet capabilities thus saving you money and energy worked out on postage/fax/courier/delivery charges, which of course can be used over a million other valuables. You can readily keep yourselves away from legendary difficulties like waiting endlessly for approvals, moving here and there for additional information etc because everything is checked and verified for errors right at the tax internet stop. And to add pie to all this, comes your schedule 1 copy to your desk within minutes as a proof of payment. What more reasons does anyone need to use e-file services online?

T2290P: Ahh. If only I was a trucker, I would have immediately used such a tax life pacifier. So one last question. How strongly would you recommend the e-file option this tax season for its safety?

TP: I have long been a serious advocate of the electronic filing (e-file) system. In my experience in both paper as well as today’s modernized e-file systems, I can confidently say e-filing tax returns is definitely quicker than mailing a paper return, much secure, and certainly reduces the risk for errors. It doubtlessly saves time and reduces headache for all the parties involved as long as the files are securely stored over the internet like now. I’d rather have ten years worth of CD’s on my shelf than ten years worth of boxes. Does anyone need anything stronger?

Before we could send him off in warmth for spending some valuable time with us, his phone rang and we could hear him say “Yes. Please stay right there. Am coming in minutes. And yes, I do use only e-file system for Form 2290 this season so you don’t have to worry too much.

He turned to us and said, “Thanks for this interview. I hope everything will shine like sun this season. Bye” and we said, “Thanks a ton for your time. Bye.

Not to forget, the closing date for filing Form 2290 for the year 2012-2013 is, the 31st of August, 2012. Get back to your computer-facing seats before that and start the e-file form 2290 process at Tax2290.com. Need assistance in between, make a call @ 1-866-245-3918 or write to support@taxexcise.com.

Tax preparers take advantage of e-file options – IRS Recommends!

Taxpayer Assistance Centers Service Changes for 2012 Filing Season

Beginning this year, IRS Taxpayer Assistance Centers generally will not accept bulk returns for processing and mailing, particularly when it affects taxpayer services. The IRS hopes to eliminate the practice of taxpayer representatives dropping off completed returns for processing, especially during peak operating periods.

The intent of this policy change is not to limit assistance to taxpayers or their authorized representatives. Nor is it intended to limit taxpayer representatives’ visits to support their clients, particularly in situations where the taxpayer is facing financial harm or undue hardship, such as delinquent returns or to start or stop an installment agreement. It is designed, primarily, to stop the practice of dropping off returns solely for processing and mailing when the returns can be mailed directly to the IRS processing center. The TACs will accept returns with imminent statute implications, with remittances or other situations where it’s in the best interest of the taxpayer and the Service to accept them.

Local TAC managers have the authority to make exceptions to this policy and will accept drop off returns if, in their opinion, tax preparation and other customer account services are not impacted.

The IRS encourages all tax preparers to take advantage of available e-file options to file returns electronically to avoid the need to have returns accepted and mailed at the local Taxpayer Assistance Center. IRS has also mandated e-filing for taxpayers with 25 or more vehicles with registered gross weight of 55,000 lbs or more.
