ROCK HILL, SC / ACCESSWIRE / August 26, 2022 / IRS Form 2290 is a tax form that needs to be filed by drivers of vehicles weighing 55,000 pounds or more for the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax. This tax form needs to be filed annually by August 31st each year. Form 2290 requires information such as business details and vehicle details. When entering vehicle information the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is required in order for the IRS to know what vehicle the Form 2290 is being filed for. The VIN of a truck is a set of 17 characters that is unique for each vehicle, and some VINs might be shorter depending on the age of the vehicle.
When putting in the VIN upon filing Form 2290, there is a possibility that the filer will make a mistake and put the wrong characters or use an entirely different VIN unintentionally. In situations like these, filing a VIN correction is necessary. ExpressTruckTax offers two easy options for filing a VIN correction to the IRS depending on the circumstance.
If the mistake made on Form 2290 involves the VIN being a few characters off, drivers are able to file a Form 2290 Amendment for a VIN Correction to get it corrected. This process amends the previously filed Form 2290 and ensures that the filer will receive a Stamped Schedule 1 with the corrected VIN. If the original Form 2290 was filed with ExpressTruckTax users are able to correct their VIN for no extra cost using this process.
If the mistake made on Form 2290 involving the VIN of the vehicle is off by more than a few characters or the entire VIN is wrong, another Form 2290 must be filed. Once the second Form 2290 gets accepted, Form 8849 must be filed to the IRS as well. If the tax has already been paid for the original Form 2290 with the incorrect VIN, Form 8849 will be used to request a credit back for the tax paid or applied to the new Form 2290. If the tax has not yet been paid, the filer will need to provide an explanation and documentation as to why the original Form 2290 should be dismissed.
VIN corrections are only some of the many amazing features offered by ExpressTruckTax. They give users the ability to correct their mistakes so that they can get a Stamped Schedule 1 with the correct information on it. The Form 2290 deadline Aug 31, 2022 is approaching fast, and while it is only a couple of days away, there is no deadline to make VIN corrections. Even if Form 2290 is filed with the wrong VIN, drivers will have time to make any necessary corrections.
