Stay Ahead of the Curve: Pre-File With ExpressTruckTax Today


While we know you’re already familiar with ExpressIFTA and all we have to offer, we’d like to take some time to familiarize you with our partner, ExpressTruckTax. Why, you might ask? That’s because for most, HVUT season is rapidly approaching, but at ExpressTruckTax, it’s already begun. That’s right, our partners over at ExpressTruckTax are offering pre-filing for the 2015-16 tax season a full month early.

Let’s face it, no one likes things hanging over their head, especially when that thing is taxes. Why procrastinate and wait until the end of August to get your 2290 filed and deal with the possibility of late penalties? As a wise man once said, “Why put off for tomorrow what you can do today.” So get it over with and E-file your 2290 with the tax experts at ExpressTruckTax today, and get back to doing what you need to do, driving.

Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Season


The HVUT season runs from July 1 through June 30 of the following year. All owner-operators, leasing companies, trucking companies, and any other businesses owning heavy vehicles with a gross weight over 55,000 pounds traveling on public highways must file Form 2290. Typically, filing doesn’t begin until the tax period begins on July 1, but with ExpressTruckTax, you can begin E-filing right now.

What is Pre-Filing?


Pre-filing is a way to file your taxes early, and it allows you to get ahead of the game by filing up to a full month before the tax season even begins! After you’re done pre-filing your return, ExpressTruckTax will hold onto it until July 1, and it will be at the top of the stack when the IRS begins processing 2015-16 returns. As soon as the IRS does begin processing on July 1, ExpressTruckTax will send you the copy of your stamped Schedule 1 immediately upon the acceptance of your return.

Why Should I Pre-File?


Even though the tax period hasn’t technically started yet for the 2015-16 season, pre-filing can still be done today. Pre-filing offers users many advantages that they won’t be able to get after July 1, with some of the major benefits including:

  • Getting your taxes out of the way, leaving more time to focus on work
  • No additional cost to pre-file
  • When selecting the check or money order option, you will get until August 31 to pay the IRS, giving you nearly 3 months to save up the amount of tax you owe
  • Your Form 2290 will be automatically transmitted to the IRS on July 1, and once transmitted you will receive your stamped Schedule 1 in minutes
  • If the return is rejected for any reason, you have plenty of time to resubmit it before August 31, making it much easier to avoid late penalties
  • VIN corrections and retransmissions for rejected returns are completely free for anyone that E-files with ExpressTruckTax
  • Customer support is available via phone, live chat, and email in both English and Spanish, with 24/7 emergency email support
