Learn how EZ2290, an IRS-authorized eFile provider, trusted by 10,000+ trucking companies, drives quick and easy 2290 filings for a variety of trucking businesses.
Everything in the world revolves around communication, including your tax filings.
An information return’s job is to collect the data from the filer (you) and communicate it to the authorities at the IRS office. Essentially, this is information communication. And this is established.
What you may not be aware of is that when you enter certain information on a website (popular or shady), you’re basically giving out information to that website or business.
And when you consider the sensitivity of the information you have to disclose for tax purposes, especially in the 2290 truck tax filings narrative, things can quickly go out of proportion.
Bad actors have found numerous ways to outsmart the modern technology (while also leveraging it to their advantage) and use it to gain access to your information.
Unfortunately, some of these bad actors could “seem” completely legit and authoritative.
However, with a quick verification check, you can tell that that’s all for show and these shady websites are just that – bad actors.
Without an authorized provider, you’re basically letting someone, who is in no position to have access to your sensitive business and vehicle information, access it.
When bad actors have access to your business information, it can be used against you. This would imply financial losses, reputational damages, legal trouble, and even operational disruptions (and that’s certainly not ideal for trucking companies that have to operate on the highways at all times).
Some of the many such advantages are discussed below.
So, let’s get started.

Advantages Of Filing Your 2290 Forms With EZ2290
🔒 Secure & Encrypted eFiling Experience
EZ2290 is encrypted with a 256-bit advanced encryption standard, the strongest security encryption standard used by the U.S. military. This translates to better security and privacy for your data.
How does it really matter, you ask? When you upload your vehicle data or when you edit your prepared electronic returns, you can be assured that no one, other than you, has access to your information.
What you do with your data is your business.
Even we can’t access your data unless you permit us.
🧱 Bulk Upload Feature
While we’re on the subject of data upload, EZ2290 offers a bulk data upload/import feature that enables you to import all your vehicle data at once. Essentially, this saves you time from copy-pasting your business information from your Excel spreadsheets and manually entering the data onto your electronic forms.
EZ2290 also populates the data automatically upon prompt, saving you hours spent just entering the data.
With this feature, you can just click and upload the data, and have it populated on your 2290 forms. You can review and edit the forms for accuracy later on.
🕹️ Automated 2290 Tax Calculations
Another great feature for a quick and easy 2290 e-filing experience is EZ2290’s automatic tax calculations. When you import the data, the dynamic calculator is activated in the background and starts calculating the total HVUT 2290 tax you owe to the IRS. As you add or remove the information from your 2290 forms, the tax is computed.
This saves you from those stressful moments where you’re trying to figure out if you’ve ~really~ got it right.
After your tax has been computed, the tax experts at EZ2290 recommend that you review your prepared returns thoroughly to ensure that there are no inconsistencies or mistakes in the information you’ve reported.
You can either use our checklist to quickly glance through your 2290 returns. Alternatively, you can get additional help from our tax support team.

📩 Instant Schedule 1
When you e-file your 2290 returns with EZ2290, you can e-file the prepared 2290 returns within seconds and receive your stamped Schedule 1, moments after submitting your returns successfully. You no longer have to wait for hours and days to receive your 2290 Schedule 1.
What’s more? You can pay your HVUT 2290 taxes with EZ2290 using any of the following payment methods.
- Credit/Debit Card
- EFW or Direct Debit
- Mail-In Checks
- ACH- Direct Bank Account Draft
We will send you a digitally-signed Schedule 1, which you can download and print (if necessary).
And that’s pretty much it. You’re done.
What you don’t see here is that EZ2290 also stores all your 2290 information online (goodbye paperwork) to help you refile a rejected return or file a 2290 Amendment conveniently, without having to re-upload or re-enter the data over and over.
✅ Free VIN Corrections
What’s a better way to convey our appreciation to our customers without some “on the house” services?
EZ2290 provides VIN Correction service, an e-filing service where registered users can file a 2290 VIN Correction form at no additional cost.
This is a common occurrence for a lot of businesses, and we think it’s not fair to charge customers for such miscellaneous tasks.
🩹 Free Re-Filing For Rejected Returns
Your 2290 tax returns can be rejected for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to incorrect information or omitted fields, or even insufficient proof. We’ll provide the additional support you may need with correcting/rectifying the information, and help you re-file these rejected returns at no additional cost.
This is on the house as well.
🎁BONUS: eFile 2290 In Bulk With EZ2290
EZ2290 also allows you to prepare and eFile thousands of 2290 returns with ease.
You can eFile 2290 forms for multiple EINs at once, helping you bulk file your 2290 returns without interruptions.
The best part about this is that the more you eFile, the cheaper it gets.
