Applicable To
Form 2290 Form 8849 Amendments

If you consent to disclose your tax information, the IRS will share the information reported on your Form 2290 and Schedule 1 with the Federal and State agencies.  These agencies include the federal Department of Transportation (DOT), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and to state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of all the vehicles reported on Schedule 1 and the verification that you have paid the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) reported on your Form 2290, line 6 will also be shared.
This information disclosed with the Department of Transportation (DOT), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will also be shared with all 50 states and the District of Columbia. 

Choosing "Yes" or "No" will not affect the status of your Form 2290 return in any way.

The IRS can execute the disclosure of information if you choose "Yes," even if you are a tax professional filing Form 2290 on behalf of your client.

If you choose "Yes" to Disclose your tax information while paper-filing your Form 2290, you will be required to provide your Employer Identification Number (EIN), signature, and date.

You will not be required to do this while filing your Form 2290 with ExpressTruckTax. You have to choose "Yes" to disclose your tax information and enter any five digits as your pin to authorize the IRS to share the vehicle information you provide with the DOT, CBP, and DMV. The five-digit PIN you provide here need not be the same as the five-digit pin you enter to e-file your Form 2290.

If you have any questions regarding your heavy highway use tax or the Form 2290 filing process ExpressTruckTax is available with 100% US-based support by phone, email, and live chat. We also offer bilingual support in both English and Spanish.
