Sometimes when filing a 2290, you might accidentally file a VIN with a wrong letter or number. What are you supposed to do when this happens and the IRS accepts your return with the wrong vehicle information? You will file a VIN correction.
Why do I file an Amended Return if I entered the VIN wrong?
In order to get a Schedule 1 with the correct information listed and the IRS has a record of the correct VIN that needs to be filed on, you will have to file an amended form. You also need a Schedule 1 that lists the correct VIN in order to get your truck tags.
What information will it ask for?
- The incorrect, or Old VIN that was filed on the original 2290
- The new or correct VIN that needs to be listed on the Schedule 1
- Yes or No to Taxable. If yes, you will need to choose the weight.
- Answer yes or no to logging and agricultural
How long does it take to get the Schedule 1 with the correct vehicle information?
It takes the same amount of time to receive this Schedule 1, about 5-25 minutes.
How will I receive the new Schedule 1?
We will email you another “Congratulations…” email with the Schedule 1 as a pdf attachment in the email.
So if you ever find the need to file a VIN correction, you now know the steps needed to get it corrected.
