If you own or have owned a business with employees, the IRS assesses what is termed 941-employee business payroll withholding tax. This payroll tax is due at the end of every pay period and/or operating quarter, and if it is not paid, penalties and interest will begin to accrue. If this payroll tax debt is neglected long enough, the business can be closed and all assets seized to satisfy the IRS debt. 941 business payroll withholding tax debt is widely considered to be the worst form of tax debt as the IRS considers it “stealing” directly from the government. Though the IRS is extremely aggressive collecting business payroll tax, businesses have very specific, enforceable rights that they are entitled to, and if enforced effectively, can help stave off collections and save the business.
Depending on the variables of the case, the business payroll taxes themselves can often times qualify for a settlement proposal, and the associated penalties successfully abated. Upon assuming power of attorney, our firm can request a reprieve against collections, buying time for the business to map out the most affordable repayment plan without suffocating operating costs. Trying to tackle business payroll tax debt on your own and negotiate directly with the assigned revenue officer is strongly advised against!
The IRS knows that with businesses, more so than individual tax debt, there are assets available to help pay off the 941 withholding tax debt, and the road to resolution can be complicated and hazardous. As a business owner, the modest investment towards legal representation must be accepted, much like it is towards bookkeeping and inventory, to minimize risk and maximize results.
