J J Keller & Associates Inc is prepared to assist carriers with the filing of their Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) through its online service, 2290online.com. Launched in 2009, 2290online.com has helped nearly 8,000 carriers file their HVUT, a requirement for vehicles with a gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more.
The IRS mandates electronic filing of Form 2290 for companies with 25 or more motor vehicles over the 55,000-lb weight limit. However, any company with heavy vehicles can file electronically. Keller’s 2290online.com allows for data entry and e-filing of 2290 information. Users have anytime access from anywhere, centralized tax filing, and e-mail reminders of annual filings. Companies with multiple locations can maintain a simple repository of tax data and filing history. Multiple account management is available for third-party filers.
The site offers step-by-step navigation for data entry or import of vehicle data, and e-filing. The user can expect an electronic stamped Schedule 1 typically within 24 hours of filing.
