Let’s get started.
How To File 2290 Form 2019 Fast
Getting StartedBefore you begin your 2290 filing, here’s some information you’ll want to collect to speed up the 2290 filing process.
- Your EIN (Employer Identification Number)
You must have an EIN to file. If you need an EIN, apply online with the IRS, or call TSNAmerica at (803) 386-0320.
- Your business name and business address
Enter business information at the beginning of the 2290 filing process.
- Your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)
This number should be 17 characters, including both numbers and letters.
- Authorized signatory details
Sign your IRS Form 2290 online with a unique 5-digit signature PIN.
- Your vehicle’s gross taxable weight
The weight of your vehicle when fully equipped for service, minus the weight of you and the load. Find this number on your cab card or a sticker inside the door of your cab. (The number on the door may be outdated, so use the cab card number if you have it.)
- Payment information
ExpressTruckTax offers multiple HVUT 2290 payment options, including credit card, direct debit, EFW (Electronic Funds Withdrawal), and EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System).
You can also mail the IRS your Highway Tax 2290 payment via check or money order.
