Protecting North Bay Area Businesses With Payroll Tax Problems
Many small and medium-sized businesses fall behind in paying payroll taxes. There are a wide range of reasons a company may fall behind. If a bookkeeper or outside accountant makes a mistake in company records or pays the taxes to the wrong jurisdiction, significant payroll tax liability can result. Disputes concerning the classification of workers as employees or independent contractors often complicate the tax withholding status of workers. A short-term cash shortfall may make it difficult to pay when the taxes are due. Once a business lags behind in its payments, it is frequently an uphill battle to catch up.
Helping Businesses Get Back On Track With Payroll Tax Obligations
When a company is behind in its payroll tax obligations, it is critical for the business to obtain legal representation to protect its interests. The Internal Revenue Service is vigorous in addressing payroll tax liabilities. The penalties for failing to pay the full amount of a payroll tax obligation are harsh. Company officers and others with authority to sign checks on behalf of the organization can be held personally liable for the tax liability. If you or your company has received a notice from the IRS that a trust fund recovery penalty is proposed, you need the assistance of an experienced lawyer with knowledge of the rules and procedures that govern payroll tax problems.
