Our Story

Made with Pride in Texas


Headquartered in Houston since 2003.

INSTANT 2290 was formed as a Texas Corporation in February 2003. INSTANT 2290 began with a single purpose: improving IRS 2290 filing. In August 2003 offered the first Form 2290 automation to the trucking community. Today, INSTANT 2290 is still singularly focused on the Form 2290 - it is all we do. Since e-file started in 2007, has processed over 1 million Heavy Highway Vehicles and delivered IRS-stamped Schedule 1s.


John Gonzales


John retired from the IRS after 17 years helping taxpayers in IRS Service Centers. John noticed some consistent issues with the Form 2290. In 2002 John started a historic discussion with fellow church musician and friend Phil Boyer.
"How can we make Form 2290 filing better for truckers?"


Phil Boyer

President, CEO

Phil, a bank executive delivering advanced technologies and payment systems, knew the importance of transactional security and redefining business-as-usual technology. Inspired by John's idea of making Form 2290s better, Phil suggested founding INSTANT 2290 with a simple mission:
"Be a light in the world."
