e-file Form 2290

You must e-file your Form 2290, Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return, if you are filing for 25 or more vehicles, but we encourage e-filing for anyone required to file Form 2290 and who wants to receive quick delivery of their watermarked Schedule 1. With e-file, you’ll receive it almost immediately after we accept your e-filed Form 2290.

Step 1 : Gather Your Information

  • Employer Identification Number. You cannot use your Social Security number
    Don't have an EIN? Apply now; allow two weeks for your new EIN to be established in our systems before filing your Form 2290.
  • Use the same name. Your e-file name control must match your EIN name.
  • Vehicle Identification Number of each vehicle.
  • Taxable gross weight of each vehicle.
    See Form 2290 instructions for information on how to calculate the taxable gross weight.

Step 2 : Choose a 2290 E-file Provider and File

  • Review the list of participating commercial software providers and select one that best meets your needs.
  • Services offered and fees charged differ by provider.
  • You cannot e-file your Form 2290 on IRS.gov. You must use one of the participating commercial software providers.
  • Follow the software prompts to complete, sign and e-file your return.

Step 3 : Choose a Payment Option

 
You'll receive your watermarked Schedule 1 from your e-file provider via email after we accept your Form 2290. To avoid problems, ensure the watermark on your printed copy of Schedule 1 is legible before submitting it to your state department of motor vehicles. You may need to reprint with fresh ink or on a different printer to ensure a legible watermark.
