What do I need to start my first HVUT Form 2290 online filing during COVID-19?

COVID-19 has forced all of us to make changes in our lives that are inconvenient, agonizing, and traumatic. However, changing from paper filing to e-filing HVUT form 2290 during the pandemic is bound to be relaxing after knowing about the ease & speed of form 2290 online filing through the IRS approved e-file service provider like Precise2290. The Precise2290 platform has been designed with you, the user, in mind. There are just a few pieces of information that you’ll need to get started.

Online Form 2290 e-file through Precise2290 platform
  1. Email Address for the Precise2290 account: Each user must have a valid email address to create an account. All email communications, including the delivery of your IRS digitally stamped Schedule 1 (Proof of Payment), will be sent to this email address.
  2. Standard Business Information: Whether you’re a tax professional filing on behalf of a client or filing for yourself, you will need to provide the business details of the organization for which the 2290 form is being filed. This information includes Business type (Corporation, Estates, Partnerships, Trust and Fiduciaries, Exempt Organization, Inc, LLC, Sole Proprietorship, and Others), Business Name, Doing Business As (DBA), Employer Identification Number (EIN), Business Address, Contact Information, and Signing Authority Details
  3. Vehicle(s) Information: First, you will need to provide the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for each vehicle.  The VIN is a 17-character identification number used for vehicle identification. Next, you’ll need to know the gross weight of each vehicle. The tax calculation is based on the gross vehicle weight and the first use month of the vehicle. The gross weight is defined as the weight of the empty vehicle plus the weight of the cargo that it typically carries. Finally, you will also be required to provide the category of the vehicle to be filed (e.g. taxable, suspended, or agricultural.) Please note that no tax payment is required for suspended vehicles, but reporting the vehicle to the IRS is mandatory.
  4. IRS Payment Option Information : You can choose to pay IRS through any of the three available payment options: direct debit from your checking or savings account (using your bank routing and account number); Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) via the Department of Treasury; or check or money order submission.
