The Internal Revenue Service said it would add three more excise tax forms to the lineup of federal tax return forms and schedules that taxpayers can file electronically.The first form that will be available for e-filing is the 2290, Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return, debuting this summer. Form 720, Quarterly Federal Excise Tax Return, and Form 8849, Claim for Refund of Excise Taxes, will premiere later this year.

Taxpayers will be able to continue filing paper-based versions of Form 2290 as the IRS begins rolling out the electronic format. Last year, more than 575,000 paper 2290 returns went to the IRS.
