Why do I need an Employer Identification Number to e-file?

Employer Identification Number (EIN) also known as the Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) or the Federal Tax Identification Number. The EIN is a unique nine-digit number assigned by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to business entities operating in the United States for the purposes of identification. Moreover IRS uses a combination of your EIN and your name as a unique identifier for the name control. On an e-filed return, if a taxpayer's unique ID doesn't match their records, it’s rejected.

Can I file my return electronically if I just received my EIN?

You may electronically file your return two weeks from the date your EIN was assigned so your name control is established in our system. If you e-file it before then, your return might be rejected. Hold it for two weeks before you transmit it online.

If I buy another truck after I have e-filed my 2290 for the current tax period, should I e-file my original 2290 again and simply add the new vehicle to the Schedule 1?

No. If you e-file your 2290 and list the vehicles you own on the Schedule 1, and later buy one or more additional trucks, you must file a new Form 2290 listing only the new vehicles. E-file that 2290 any time before the last day of the month following the month the new vehicle was first used on public highways. Review the table to find your due dates.

May I file one 2290 for two trucks that I place on the road in two consecutive months?

No. The amount of tax you owe depends on the month when the first use occurs on public highways during the tax period. The tax period runs from July 1 to June 30. In this case, you should file two Forms 2290, one for each vehicle and its partial tax period, and complete a Schedule 1 for each. Your tax will be more for the truck that was used first during the period. In the next tax year, you can file one 2290 for all the trucks you will have on the road for the 12 months of the tax year.

What should I do if my e-filed return is rejected by the IRS for duplication?

Make sure the Vehicle Identification Numbers are correct and are not duplications from a previous filing. Correct any duplication and re-submit the return.

When you are correcting VINs listed on a previously submitted and accepted return, you may correct it electronically by filing "VIN correction" return. If the new VIN is different from what was listed on your original return (Schedule 1), you need to explain why the VIN you are now submitting is different.

When I submitted my Form 2290 electronically, I received an online duplicate filing error. Why did this happen?

The system detected that you had already filed a return under the same EIN, for the same tax period, for the same vehicle(s) or the same VIN category. Check your tax return to confirm that you are reporting new vehicles only and that your other information is correct.

Anyways our website will let you know once the added VIN is perilously reported in the tax period, provided you have filed the previous return through us. VIN duplication is completely eliminated.

Can I claim a refund electronically for a vehicle that was sold, destroyed or stolen during the tax period?
