    I mailed mine in, cost one stamp. I figure some irs worker has to open the envelope and stamp it paid then mail it back.
    Just trying to get my moneys worth.

    Highway use tax... Every truck in the country, and Canada and Mexico that comes here pays it. It is a yearly "fee". And the roads are still crap. $550 a truck, you do the math. ;-)
    mitmaks and TruckRunner Thank this.

    only the irs would charge a late fee on something that is paid in advance.

    when my plates were due in December i used to always forget to pay my 2290 on time now my irp renews in September so renewal paperwork comes before my 2290 is due so i remember to pay it on time now...lol
    D.Tibbitt and Ruthless Thank this.

    2290 is the money the blood sucking leaches take from Commerical trucks to fund lavish pet projects. Then turn around and say they need a gas tax for 20 billion dollars for more slush funds,and worthless projects they can think up while sitting on the can. But the heavy highway use tax to the IRS is $590. For say 3 mil. Trucks. They get 1.7 billion dollars from trucking companies a year. Think they can fix the roads with a few bucks ? Roughly what Obama sent to Iran.

    Obama administration acknowledges $1.7B transfer to Iran was all cash

    Just pisses me off how much is pissed away and they still want more money from Americans.

    I just did mine...I hate ExpressTruck Tax for their 2 month long spamming and I hate myself even more for using them in the very end. It took less than 5 minutes to file and receive the stamped schedule 1. They congratulated me on the fact that IRS accepted the 2290 form and sent me stamped schedule 1. Did I do a feat? I would think that IRS should send me thank you for your $550 message not just stamped schedule1.

    Oh...they should make the stamp darker, more visible. It is too light for scanning or faxing.

    I could never figure out why guys pay to have it done for them.
    Print off the forms.
    Fill it out.
    Stick a stamp on it and throw it in the mail.
    10 minute project.
