Payroll Tax Problems

The IRS views failure to pay payroll taxes as a major offense in the area of tax delinquency because a large portion of the payroll taxes were withheld from your employees. The failure to pay your company's payroll taxes is tantamount to stealing your employees' money in the eyes of the IRS. Because of this view, penalties for failing to pay your payroll taxes and filing your payroll tax returns on time are much more severe than other types of penalties. These penalties can drastically increase the amount you owe in a very short time.

If you are behind on paying payroll taxes for your company, please understand that the IRS is extremely aggressive pursuing collection of this type of tax. They would rather seize your business assets, close you down, sell your assets at auction, and put you out of business than allow you to continue to accrue additional payroll tax liabilities.

If you are behind on your payroll taxes, DO NOT meet with the IRS on your own. How you answer their initial questions can determine whether you stay in business or not. It is critical that you hire a professional representative who knows how the IRS operates. My staff and I have had extensive experience assisting clients in this area and are confident in our ability to communicate successfully with the IRS.
