For more reasons as to why e-filing is the best way to File HVUT, here are the following points:
Although the IRS still accepts physical tax returns by postal mail, it does appear to be moving away from that and closer to requiring E-Filing more and more. One particular example of this is IRS Form 2290, which is used to collect what is referred to as the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax or HVUT. It is a fee that the IRS requires all vehicles with registered gross weights equal to or exceeding 55,000 pounds to pay annually on heavy vehicles operating on public highways.
The IRS has already made it mandatory for all Trucking Companies or other industries that have to file a Form 2290 for 25 or more heavy vehicles to E-File the return as opposed to paper filing it. This IRS Form contains a Schedule 1 which must be stamped by the IRS before the vehicle can be registered with the state Department of Motor Vehicles. This form can be mailed to the IRS, which can take up to several weeks to process. It could also be taken directly to the IRS office, which can take several hours of your day. This must be accompanied by a proof of EFTPS payment.
This form must be filed annually, for each taxable vehicle that is used on public highways during the current period. The Current Period begins on July 1st and ends on June 30th of the next year. An IRS Form 2290 must also be filed once a vehicle is placed in service. The due date for each month is the last day of the following month. For example: if a vehicle is placed in service on July 3rd, the Form 2290 will be due on August 31st.
