IRS Now Accepting Renewal Applications for ITIN Expiring by 2017 Year End

Posted by Admin on 24. July 2017 12:16

The IRS has started accepting the renewal applications for Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs), which are expiring by the 2017-year end. Hence, the taxpayers are alerted to submit the renewal applications quickly in order to avoid the last minute haste and any processing delays. The taxpayers whose ITINs are expiring and who need to file a tax return in the year 2018 required submitting their renewal application and other who have a valid ITIN does not require any action. The taxpayer who holds the ITIN with middle digits 70, 71, 72, or 80 must be renewed even though it is been used in the last three years.  A taxpayer who holds the middle digit 78, and 79, which is expired can renew their ITINs.

 

Family Options:

In another case, if the taxpayer receives a mail from the IRS then the taxpayer can select to renew their ITIN along with their family’s ITINs even the family members hold their ITIN with middle digits other than 70, 71, 72 or 80. Here, the family members refer to the taxpayer, spouse and any dependents who claim on the tax return.

Errors in the ITIN Application:

The errors in the ITIN renewal application such as missing information the insufficient supporting documentation makes the application processing slow and makes few applications to keep them on hold. Before sending the application to the IRS, the applicants must thoroughly check the Form W-7, and the Application for IRS (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) ITIN.  For further assistance, the taxpayer can sort the help of a Certified Acceptance Agent or by consulting an IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center (TAC).

How to Renew an ITIN:

In order to renew an ITIN, FormW-7 is required. The taxpayer must complete the Form W-7 and submit all the required documentation. If you are, a taxpayer who needs to renew ITIN need not attach a federal tax return when you have submitted a Form W-7. Nevertheless, the taxpayers must write the reason for the need of an ITIN on the Form W-7. For more information, you can check the detailed instruction in Form W-7. You can submit the W-7 application in three ways as follows.

      1. You can email the Form W-7 with the original identification documents or along with the certified copies by the agencies that issued them. Address of the IRS is as listed in the instructions part of Form W-7. As soon as the IRS receives the documents, reviews the identification documents and return them within 60 days.


2.       Tax payers can work with the Certified Acceptance Agents (CAAs), which is authorized by the IRS to assist the taxpayers to apply for an ITIN. A CAA can certify the identification documents for both primary and secondary taxpayers; they can certify the correctness of the ITIN application before submitting to the IRS. A CAA also certifies birth certificates and passports for the dependents. With the contribution from the CAA, a taxpayer saves a lot of time, instead of mailing the originals to the IRS.


3.       The taxpayer has an option to call and fix an appointment at a designated IRS taxpayer assistance center and can avoid sending the original identification documents by mail to the IRS.

Avoid Common Errors and Prevent Process Delays

Federal returns, which have an expiry ITIN in 2018, can be submitted and processed. Still few of the exemptions and other tax credits are not allowed. The tax payers who have an expiring ITIN are notified through email stating the need to change their tax return and remains about the renewal of their ITIN. When the tax payer renews the ITIN, all the applicable exemptions and the tax credits are restored automatically. In case, if there was a refund it will be processed.

There are factors, which delays the process of the application. This is due to several common errors slows down and hold the ITIN renewal applications. The most common mistakes include missing information or insufficient supporting document. Hence, the Internal Revenue Service advises the tax payers to carefully check the application, correct the application if there were errors and finally send to the IRS.

The taxpayer must also note that the IRS does not accept the passports that do not have a date of entry into the U.S.In addition, they are considered as a stand-alone identification document for the dependents from other countries such as Canada or Mexico, else for the dependents of U.S military personnel overseas. If the dependent’s passport does not have a date of entry stamp in the passport, then the following additional document is required in order to prove as the resident of the U.S.

    • 1.       Medical records of U.S for the dependents whose age is fewer than six years.
    • 2.       School records of U.S for the dependents whose age is less than 18 years.
    • 3.       School records of U.S., rental agreements or statements, bank statements or utility bills, which contains the name of the applicant and the U.S address if the age is more than 18 years.

In order to spread and increase the availability of the ITIN services across the nation, especially in the communities that have high ITIN usage, the IRS is keen in recruiting a Certified Acceptance Agents and Applications are invited throughout the year. Therefore, if you are a volunteer at tax preparation, community outreach partners or interested individuals go through the program changes and requirements.

How Form 8849 Affects 2290 Online?

There are a number of reasons why a tax payer must file Form 8849. The most common reasons to pick 8849 Form is when the vehicle is sold; stolen, destroyed; mileage has not exceeded the limit, over paid or mistakenly filed. In that case, the taxpayer can include Form 8849 request on the same Form 2290 tax return. Then the credit will be applied towards the new vehicle thus saving the time and money.

It is not mandatory to file 8849 with IRS 2290 Form always. For instance, when your vehicle did not exceed 5,000 mileage limits which are the minimum requirement during the tax period. In that case, you are eligible to mail credit refund.

Recently a new option was added which is Over Payment or mistakenly filed Form. This could be helpful when the tax payer has filed a Form 2290 for a truck, then bought a new truck during the tax period. Here when the tax payer mistakenly added the first truck, while filing IRS 2290 Form for the new truck. Here the IRS system will not find that there duplicate Forms and the tax payer will end up paying twice for one vehicle. In that scenario, the tax payer can file 8849 Form to request the money back.

Keep it remember! After the filing of Heavy Vehicle Use Tax  (HVUT) 2290 Form only worth the IRS for respective tax year then only you can able to file Form 8849 with IRS.

2.   The tax payer also can claim a refund of the tax paid on Form 8849, Schedule 6. The amount depends on the type of the claim whether the vehicle was sold, stolen or destroyed.

OOIDA's ELD Appeal Rejected by Court - OOIDA's Challenge Options

Posted by Admin on 17. July 2017 13:31

Electronic Logging Devices or ELD’s are an electronic solution, which assists the professional truck drivers and other commercial motors to track their Hours of Service (HOS) compliance easily and more conveniently. These electronic logging devices are the perfect replacement and upgrade to current automatic onboard recording devices (AOBRD) which track the driver’s record of Duty Status (RODS).

The United States enacted the bill “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century” in the year 2012, which is referred as MAP-21. The bill contained the FMCSA requirements to develop the rule mandating the use of Electronic Logging Devices. It also required the commercial truck drivers to upgrade from the current version of Record of Duty Status (RODS) and Hours of Service (HOS) systems to ELD’s so that comply with HOS regulations.

The Appeal of OOIDA'S ELD in Court

In 2016 September, the OOIDA (Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association) contended their case against the Department of Transportation to overturn the ELD mandate. Their argument contained five points mainly that formed the base of the case.

1.   EID does not record enough information automatically due to the intervention of the human in the system process: This rule proved contrary to the law as it allows the EIDs that are not fully automatic. It seeks to pit one statutory need against the other rather than leaving the agency to balance the competing policy goals, which is endorsed by the Congress.

2.   The term “driver harassment” is not perfectly defined in the system and fails to safeguard the harassment rule: The agency considered the input from the drivers, motor carriers, and trade organizations. Hence, the agency gave a reasonable definition of the term “driver harassment”.

3.   The cost-benefit analysis of the agency was not adequate and did not justify the implementation of the EID rule: The agency has no need to conduct this analysis, which was mandated by the Congress. Still, if the analysis is mandatory, the provided studies are adequate.

4.   The agency did not provide the confidentiality protection for the drivers: The agency implemented a realistic approach in order to protect the drivers in this regard.

5.   The ELD mandate imposes an unconstitutional search and seizure on truck drivers: The agency summarizes that there is no violation found in Fourth Amendment. Here the rule itself imposes a search or seizure on an ELD recorded data that fall within the “pervasively regulated industry” exception to the warrant requirement. 

OOIDA Challenge Ways 

Initially, on April 11th, the OOIDA counsel trailed a petition for Writ of Certiorari with the Supreme Court and filed the law suit in March 2016 on various backgrounds, which include the violation of the electronic logs, the Fourth Amendment of the U.S Constitution.

On June 8th, 2017, the OOIDA challenged the U.S. Supreme Court to begin the process of deciding if it can accept the group’s challenge to the electronic logging mandate. The justices hold a conference to review the petitions on pending cases and could announce a decision on OOIDA’s petition before it adjourns for summer in June.

The U.S Supreme Court mentioned that it would not hear a lawsuit against the DOT rule requiring the truck operators to use the electronic logging devices to track the track hours of the service. On March 2016 OOIDA brought the lawsuit against the DOT and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. In the following month, it ruled against the OOIDA, which favored the DOT by dismissing all the OOIDA’s argument against the mandate.

The U.S Supreme Court outranked the 7th circuit appellate court. When the OOIDA filed a writ of certiorari to take up the case the justices of the Supreme Court conferred on the appeal of OOIDA on June 8th. Later, it issued the decision on the following days, which effectively ends the OOIDA’s court challenge.

VIN Corrections – An Overview

Mistakes are common while you are filing Form 2290 tax return. All those errors can be corrected in some way, either through money or other efforts. But can you believe that you can correct the mistakes without any cost and effort? Surprising right? Just read on.

As the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of your heavy vehicle for which you filed Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT), comes with 17 characters. And those characters are mixed with numbers and letters; hence it is common that some typos are likely to happen. In some case, we may have entered ‘O’ instead of number ‘0’ zero. Both look similar to our naked eye, but the IRS is expert in catching out our faults for having incorrect VIN. To avoid such unlikely condition, it is better to double check your VIN and file a free correction with etax2290.com. As you have filed the Form 2290 already and paid the IRS to receive stamped schedule 1, you are in a position to solve this VIN problem as early as possible.

Purpose of Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)

Under the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regulations, a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) consists of 17 characters and it is assigned to the vehicle for identification purpose. The main aim of the VIN system is to enhance the accuracy and efficiency of vehicle recall campaigns or defects related to motor vehicle safety. The VIN system is also vital to law enforcement officials as an anti-theft mechanism, for identification purpose of insurance companies, for researchers to identify the vehicles during crash investigation program, titling purposes, and to state governments for vehicle registration.

Each and every vehicle has a VIN, which is assigned at the time the vehicle is manufactured. And it is unique for each vehicle, and no two vehicles have the same number. The VIN is used to track the vehicle’s insurance policies, reports of accidents and other related incidents. In order to memorize your VIN better, check how the VIN is formed. The 17 characters of the VIN is divided into three parts: Identifier of World Manufacturer, Vehicle Descriptor Section and Vehicle Identifier Section.  When you split the VIN according to the groups, it makes easier to keep the number in mind.

Things to Remember before Free VIN Correction

There are certain things that you need to keep in mind before proceeding to VIN corrections.

  • VIN corrections are done only for taxable or suspended vehicles, and not for credit vehicles or for previously suspended vehicles.
  • If you are filing a VIN Correction  Form 2290, it cannot be combined with other credits claim on the same form.
  • The incorrect VIN form must be a paid original IRS 2290 Form. Failing to do that will attract penalties on top of the actual tax from the IRS.

So what are you waiting for? Incorrect VIN in the IRS 2290 Form? No worries. Visit etax2290.com to make free VIN corrections instantly and on time.
