Payroll Taxes

Running a business is a difficult and time-consuming endeavor. That endeavor is made all the more challenging by having employees. The Internal Revenue Code requires every employer to withhold Social Security taxes, Medicare taxes, and income taxes from the wages of its employees. The portion of Social Security and Medicare taxes withheld from the employees’ wages, along with an additional contribution of Social Security tax made by the employer, is commonly referred to as “Payroll Taxes” or “Employment Taxes.” The combination of Payroll Taxes actually withheld from an employee’s wages (net of the employer’s contribution), plus the income taxes that are actually withheld from an employee’s wages, are collectively referred to as “Withholding Taxes” or “Trust Fund Taxes.” The term Trust Fund Taxes is used because these taxes are theoretically held in trust by the employer until paid over to the IRS.

If you have a business, you could face steep penalties for failing to timely and properly withhold and pay over withholding taxes. Substantial penalties and interest continue to accrue for failure to pay over any amounts of withholding taxes. Moreover, The IRS employs Revenue Officers who specialize in collecting payroll taxes. In many cases, they pursue collection efforts against the company’s officers, directors or owners.

If you are facing a payroll tax issue, don’t take on the IRS by yourself. Without the proper legal help, it can be a daunting, frustrating and often futile effort. Call Moretsky Law for a free consultation. We will determine the best course of action based on your unique circumstances, whether that means an Offer in Compromise, a payment plan, bankruptcy protection or other solution. I work tirelessly to secure a resolution that will keep your business open. If the IRS has already begun collection efforts, I will defend your business’s interests to ensure that your business can continue to operate.
