My FEIN Does not match my name control
Your name control 'should' be the 1st 4 characters of your business name if you are a corporation. John Smith Trucking INC would be JOHN.

If you are a Sole Proprietor your name control should be the 1st 4 letters of your LAST name. John Smith Trucking would be SMIT.

If neither of the above senarios help, then you must call the IRS. They will tell you the name control they have on file for your company.

Please call them and ask them to verify your FEIN and Name control.

When do I legally need to file the IRS Form 2290?
Legally, you need to pay your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (Form 2290) before the end of the month following the month you place the vehicle in service.

For example - If you place a new vehicle on the road in September, then you have until the end of October to pay and obtain the schedule 1. (However, most states will not allow you to register or plate your vehicle without the schedule 1)

Another Example: Your 1 July 2012 filing for your 2012-2013 is NOT due until 31 August 2012.
