Payroll Tax Lawyer in New York City
Employment and Payroll Taxes
Employers throughout New York City are responsible for withholding and paying particular taxes, including federal, Social Security and Medicare, from their employees' wages. These taxes must be paid on a monthly or quarterly basis, and any failure to pay employment or payroll taxes may have extremely serious consequences, not only for the business and its owner but potentially for other employees who are deemed responsible for payroll tax payment. The IRS may actually hold various employees personally liable for unpaid payroll taxes, depending on their role in the company and responsibility for financial, payroll or tax-related matters.

Manhattan and Brooklyn Payroll Tax Attorney
A typical scenario associated with a struggling business is that the most pressing debts and demanding creditors will be paid first. This may include the mortgage or rent, utilities and suppliers - all needed to keep the business running. Unfortunately, failing to address tax debt can come back to haunt you. Payroll taxes are one of few debts that cannot be discharged through bankruptcy, should this be the company's last resort. Payroll tax debt will remain, accruing interest and penalties. In seeking payment, the IRS may not only go after the owner of the business but may hold other employees fully responsible for the tax debt. This may include any individual responsible for making financial decisions, reporting payroll taxes, paying bills or signing checks.
