What is Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) as requested on Form 2290?

The Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) is an identification number used by Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in the administration of tax laws and is issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The Social Security Administration (SSA) issues Social Security Numbers (SSN).


 

  • Social Security Number (SSN)
  • Employer Identification Number (EIN)
  • Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN)
  • Taxpayer Identification Number for Pending U.S. Adoptions (ATIN)
  • Preparer Taxpayer Identification Number (PTIN)


 

What is Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) as requested on Form 2290?

The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of your vehicle can be obtained from the registration, title or the actual vehicle. Generally, the VIN is made up of numbers and letters and is 17 characters long. When filling out federal tax form 2290, be sure to use the VIN for the vehicle and not from the trailer.


 

Why do I need to put my Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on Form 2290 Schedule 1?

The IRS cannot stamp a Form 2290 Schedule 1 without a VIN. And, without the stamped Form 2290 Schedule 1 you will not be able to register your truck. By writing the VIN on both the top and bottom copies of your Form 2290 Schedule 1, the IRS will have a back-up copy on file in case you lose your original copy.
