How do I make corrections in the filed returns?
Once the IRS accepts your Form 2290 and your Stamped Schedule 1 (Proof of HVUT Payment) has been generated, you cannot make any changes to Schedule 1. If you make any errors in your return, which you want to correct, here's what you have to do.
- Wrong First Used Month (FUM), Tax Year, Employer Identification Number (EIN), or Name: If you have made errors in entering any of these fields while filing Form 2290, you need to file a new Form 2290 with the correct information. You must also file Form 8849 and add the vehicles you filed erroneously for in the "Tax Overpayment" section. The HVUT paid for the wrong Form 2290 can be claimed as a refund. It is also necessary to mention that you had filed the original return with the incorrect information in the "Explanation to the IRS" field.
- Wrong Vehicle Identification Number (VIN): If you have filed your Form 2290 with the incorrect VIN, you must file a VIN correction to get an updated Schedule 1 with the new VIN.
- Wrong Weight Category: If you have filed your Form 2290 with the wrong weight category, you must file a taxable weight gross increase amendment to make any changes to the return.
- Mileage Exceeded: If you have filed your vehicle as a suspended vehicle and the vehicle exceeded 5000 miles within the tax year, you must file an amendment and report this information to the IRS.
- Wrong Payment Details: Once you choose EFW as your payment method and transmit the return to the IRS, you cannot change it. If you make errors while providing your account details after choosing EFW as your payment method, the IRS will reject your return. Once the IRS rejects your return, you must make your payment through EFTPS, or check or money order. If you choose EFTPS as your payment method, you can also make your payment through check or money order and vice-versa.
