Make Sure You File Your Tax Form 2290 (HVUT) On Time!

File Form 2290 online

Punctuality is a very important word in a Truckers Dictionary. Once I heard a 15 years experienced Truck Driver say “I’m a little trucker and trucking’ is what I do best. It’s what I want to do with my life, and that’s how I’ll be. Driving down the highway, carrying what someone will eat or need tomorrow makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.”

I would say “IF YOU BOUGHT IT, A TRUCKER BROUGHT IT”. There is always trouble waiting if there is a delay, be it anything.  Everyone in trucking business is well disciplined and has to follow a strict schedule.

A Perfect Truckers duty is not only transporting goods from one place to another, it also involves a lot of other Social and Economic responsibilities such as paying their taxes on time. Heavy vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) is one of the Taxes imposed by the IRS on usage of Heavy vehicles with a gross weight of 55,000 pounds and above on public Highways.

Though paying taxes is never a joyful experience. Considering the fact that the funds collected from HVUT is used in maintenance of Highways. So if we enjoy something, then we shouldn’t mind paying for it. Few years back the only way to file your Tax Form 2290 was by paper. One should either walk into a local IRS office or has to mail a completed tax form 2290 to the IRS. Both the options are time consuming and involve a lot of complicated tax calculations more over you have to wait in a long queue and a waste a day of yours or wait for week’s sometime even months to get an approved stamped Schedule 1 copy back from the IRS.

Tax2290.com – Trucker’s Best Friend

Have you ever wondered how important Time is for anyone who is in the Trucking Industry. Recently met a old friend of mine, who is a Truck Driver we had a short chat. He was accompanied by his fellow Trucker and that’s when I realized how hectic their lives are.

Trucking is not a typically scheduled job, chaotic would be a more accurate description. Too many variables weather, loading and unloading delays, appointments, breakdowns, traffic, etc., Also depends on what you haul, Flat beds don’t usually get unloaded at night. Most shipping hubs are 24/7 but not all receivers.

My friend over the chat said “Some days I feel the need to stop every 200 miles. Some days I drive for 11 hours straight. It all depends on the urgency of the load and my bodily functions.  It may seem like you’re just dipping into that truck stop or gas station for a quick soda, but make sure you add in the time it takes you to find a place to park and get to the door, even if it’s only at the fuel island. In a car it can take one minute. In a truck it can take 5. When you stop some place, it may only seem like a short 15 minute stop, but then think how far down the road you would be if you hadn’t stopped.”

So Considering the fact that Truck Owners and Drivers have very less time to spend with their family, think how sad it would be if they are asked to stand in a long Queue in an IRS Office to file their HVUT Tax Form 2290, Which will take at least a day. Most annoying part is the confusing Tax calculations involved.

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.

Excise Taxes – Tax Tips for Construction Companies

Construction companies may be liable for the federal highway vehicle use tax. These companies may also be eligible to claim an income tax credit or a refund for gasoline, diesel fuel, or kerosene that is used in nontaxable uses.

Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax

A truck or truck tractor is subject to the highway vehicle use tax if it:

Is a highway motor vehicle (generally, a vehicle moved by its own motor and designed to transport a load over the public highways, even if it is designed to do other  things)

Is registered or required to be registered for highway use

Is used on a public highway, and

·Has a taxable gross weight of at least 55,000 pounds (taxable gross weight means the weight of the vehicle plus the weight of the trailers and semi-trailers customarily used in connection with vehicles of the same type, plus the weight of the maximum load customarily carried on vehicles, trailer, and semi-trailers of the same type)
The tax applies to the first use of a taxable vehicle on a public highway during the taxable period, which is each July 1st through June 30th. The person in whose name a taxable vehicle is registered or required to be registered must pay the tax on Form 2290, Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return. The tax is due by the last day of the month following the month in which the vehicle is first used during the taxable period. Thus, if you use a taxable vehicle in July, you must file Form 2290by August 31st.

Fuel Tax Credits and Refunds

A federal excise tax is imposed on gasoline ($.184 per gallon), clear diesel fuel ($.244 per gallon), and clear kerosene ($.244 per gallon). The amount of these taxes may be credited or refunded if these fuels are used in many types of off-road uses. Common off-road uses include use as heating oil, use in stationary engines, use in non-highway vehicles, and use in separate engines mounted on highway vehicles.

Generally, refunds of $750 or more may be claimed quarterly on Form 8849, Claim for Refund ofExcise Taxes. Claims not made on Form 8849 may be claimed as income tax credit on Form 4136,  Credit for Federal Tax Paid on Fuel(PDF).

Note that a credit or refund is not allowable for the following:

· Any use in the propulsion engine of a registered highway vehicle, even if the vehicle is used off the highway·   Any fuel that is lost or destroyed through fire, spillage, or evaporation·         Any use of dyed diesel fuel or dyed kerosene. In fact, you may be subject to a substantial penalty if you use dyed fuel as a fuel in a registered diesel-powered highway vehicle
It is important to keep records to support your claim. Keep these records at your principal place of business. These records should establish the number of gallons used during the period covered by the claim, the dates of purchase, the names and addresses of suppliers and amounts bought from each in the period covered by the claim, the purposes for which you used the fuel, and the number of gallons used for each purpose.

**If you use propane or other special fuels in registered highway vehicles, you may be liable for tax on this use.
