Express Truck Tax

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015 Comments are off for this post

MERCER is proud to continue its partnership with ExpressTruckTax for the 2015-16 tax season.

HVUT is required for all owner-operators and leased operators with vehicles that have a gross weight over 55,000 pounds. It must be filed every year during the tax period beginning on July 1st. To simplify this process, ExpressTruckTax has created an exclusive portal for us at through which you can securely e-file your HVUT Form 2290 at a discounted rate of just $8.91 for a single truck.

Not only is this the best value in the industry, but ExpressTruckTax has completely streamlined the process, making HVUT filings faster and simpler than ever before.
E-filing through the portal:

• Is 100% safe and secure
• Is an IRS-authorized e-filing service
• Allows you to receive your stamped Schedule 1 within minutes
• Gives you until the end of the tax period, August 31, 2015, to make your tax payment if you opt to pay by check or money order

Be sure to create your account today and prepare for renewal season by entering your vehicle details. Preparing now ensures a smooth E-filing process later and limits the possibility of mistakes or rejected returns.

If you don’t have access to the internet or you’re running short on time, ask to be transferred to their full service department, Truck Services of North America, and they will be happy to file for you over the phone.

MERCER’s success continues to rest solely on its drivers, and that’s why we are thrilled to continue offering you the opportunity to simplify the tax-filing process. The ExpressTruckTax program contains support text to help guide users through the process step by step, and they also offer unparalleled customer support that is US-based and available 24/7 in both English and Spanish. For assistance setting up your account, call them now at 704.234.6005, or email them at
