Payroll Tax and Backup Withholdings
Discrepancies & Errors in Payroll Taxes
It is actually not uncommon for companies to fall behind on their payroll taxes. Business owners end up spending the IRS tax money on other business expenses and come up short during tax season. Unfortunately, the IRS does not care why employers are unable to pay they just seek to recover every penny that is owed to them, including any interest that may have accrued on your back taxes. Many times the IRS will come after you right away, but they typically wait a year or so and then will come asking about your outstanding tax. Do not be fooled however, just because the IRS is not coming after you for repayment, does not mean that you don’t have interest accumulating every month that those taxes go unpaid. If you have not paid all of your payroll taxes, or failed to pay at all, the IRS will begin sending you inquiry letters and give notice about the amount of money owed to them. They will then charge you penalty fees or interest and send you updated statements on the correct amount of money that you owe.
Payroll tax or backup withholdings discrepancies can also occur due to many reasons which an employer or business may not necessarily be responsible for. Besides simple clerical errors or mistakes, you may have been provided with wrong or false Social Security numbers by employees, etc. An attorney at the firm sits down with the client and carefully goes over all the circumstances, records and any other information pertaining to the matter. Do not simply ignore any IRS communications, this will only result in further penalties and aggravate them further. They will eventually send you a final letter giving notice that they will retrieve the back taxes by using other means like a tax levy or tax lien. The IRS could go after you hard-earned money and begin wage garnishment actions against you. Now is the time to make informed decisions! Contact the lead
