Content Sponsored by Express Truck Tax

Form 2290 has to be filed by drivers of vehicles weighing 55,000 pounds or more to the IRS for the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT). When filing Form 2290 it is important to know when you have to pay the tax and what options are available for paying the tax. There are several payment options accepted by the IRS used to pay the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax. These payment methods are available to provide the most convenient options for drivers to pay the tax the way that works best for them. All of these payment methods are made available to drivers when they file their Form 2290 through ExpressTruckTax.

What payment methods are available for paying the HVUT when filing through ExpressTruckTax?

When filing Form 2290, several payment options are available for paying the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT). These 2290 payment methods include paying the HVUT directly through ExpressTruckTax using a credit or debit card, using a credit or debit card to pay the HVUT with a third-party payment processor, EFW (electronic funds withdrawal), through EFTPS, and with a check or money order.

Paying your HVUT directly through ExpressTruckTax

When paying the HVUT directly through ExpressTruckTax, you will need to use a credit or debit card. You will be required to pay the tax payment alongside the filing fee. This is the most convenient payment option available. This is because you can file and pay your HVUT all in one place without having to remember to do it after filing. This way you will not risk getting nonpayment letters if you do forget to pay after filing. 

Paying your HVUT using a third-party payment processor

Using a third-party payment processor allows you to pay your HVUT using a credit or debit card. It is a good payment method if you want to file now and pay later, but you must make your payment on a different website. The IRS has a list of approved payment processors but you must remember to make this payment. If you do not, you will receive a nonpayment letter from the IRS. 

Paying your HVUT through EFW (Electronic Funds Withdrawal)

Using Electronic Funds Withdrawal to pay your HVUT is as easy as providing your routing number and bank account information on Form 2290. As soon as your 2290 Form is accepted the money will be taken out of your account within two to four days by the IRS making this another convenient way to pay and not have to worry about paying the tax later. However, if you want to file and pay later this is not the payment method you should use. 

Paying Your HVUT through EFTPS

Paying through EFTPS is a good way to pay if you need to file now and pay later. However, in order to utilize this payment method, you must have an EFTPS account and then schedule the payment to be withdrawn at your convenience. If you do not have an EFTPS account, it typically takes about fifteen days for one to become active, so if you are low on time and do not have an EFTPS account, a different payment method should be considered.

Paying Your HVUT using a check or money order

Making your HVUT payment using a check or money order is perfect for those who want to file now and pay later. Upon selecting this payment method you will receive a voucher with the address for where to send the payment to. It is important to remember to make your payment once you file Form 2290. As long as the envelope is postmarked on or before the deadline the payment will not be considered late.
