Industry Leader is Now Offering Pre-Filing for the 2015-16 HVUT Tax Year

Pre-filing helps tax payers by giving them an extra month to save up the amount of tax owed.

ExpressTruckTax, leading IRS-certified e-file provider based in Rock Hill, SC, has announced that it is offering pre-filing from June 1 through June 30 for the 2015-16 Heavy Vehicle Use Tax season. ExpressTruckTax has been a leader in the e-filing industry since 2010 and is a trusted e-file provider partnered with many of the top one hundred trucking companies. Over the past several years, ExpressTruckTax has continued to find creative and innovative ways to grow both its business and its clientele while helping to minimize the burden of tax filing for its users.

IRS Form 2290 must be filed by all owner-operators, trucking companies, leasing companies, and any other business owning heavy vehicles with a gross weight over 55,000 pounds traveling 5,000 miles or more on public highways. The tax year for the HVUT period runs from July 1 to June 30 the following year.

Although the tax period hasn’t technically opened for the 2015-16 season yet, pre-filing can still be completed for the upcoming season right now through Pre-filing offers users many advantages that e-filers won’t be able to get after July 1. Some of these benefits include:

-Getting the tax filing out of the way, leaving more time to focus on work

-No additional cost to pre-file

-When selecting the check or money order payment option, filers have until August 31 to pay the IRS, giving them nearly three months to save up the tax amount owed

-The form is automatically transmitted to the IRS on July 1, and the user then receives a stamped Schedule 1 within minutes of transmission

-If the return is rejected, the user has plenty of time to correct the error and retransmit the return before August 31, making it much easier to avoid late penalties

Additionally, VIN corrections and retransmission of rejected returns are completely free year-round for anyone that e-files with ExpressTruckTax, and if the user has any questions, USA-based support in English or Spanish is available via phone, live chat, and email.

The website itself is one of many reasons for ExpressTruckTax’s success as security is rightly one of the primary concerns of taxpayers today. The ExpressTruckTax website is McAfee secure certified, encrypted, and protected by a Secure Sockets Layer to ensure that all of its users’ tax information is kept safe and secure.

Moreover, the site has completely streamlined the e-filing process, eliminating lengthy IRS forms and confusing tax jargon. Their easy-to-use interface is also cost-efficient, with filings starting as low as $9.90 for a single truck. The program also has several exclusive custom features, including special tax professional pricing, three different IRS payment options, free VIN corrections, and instant audit checks.

In addition to offering pre-filing online, ExpressTruckTax also has a mobile site, tablet apps, and is now launching iOS and Android apps for smartphones, giving users the freedom to pre-file from their smartphone or tablet anywhere, anytime. More information about these apps can be found at

With many users already electing to pre-file their 2290’s, ExpressTruckTax will continue to implement new, unique ways to make e-filing easier and more accessible for transportation professionals. They are proud to continue supporting the American economy as they themselves are a small, privately-held business based in the United States, just like many of the clients they serve.
