Unpaid Federal Employee Withholding Taxes

You can’t withhold withholding tax! An employer is required to withhold federal income and payroll taxes from its employees’ wages and pay them to the IRS. Withheld payroll taxes are called trust fund taxes because the employer holds the employees’ money in trust until a federal tax deposit is made. Failure to do so can bring the entire wrath of the IRS upon you and your company.

Penalties for Failing to Pay Federal Employee Withholding Taxes Can Be Severe and May Include Prison Time.

TAX PROBLEM: You Withheld Federal Income and Payroll Taxes from Your Employees’ Wages and did not Pay Them to the IRS. It seems that company officers often don’t want to be bothered with accounting or tax matters. As a result, it is not uncommon for a director or chairman to instruct an employee to take care of handling and paying payroll taxes. However, if that employee fails to pay withheld payroll taxes, delegating that authority does not relieve a person of responsibility to collect and pay taxes to the IRS. Importantly, penalties can be imposed on any responsible person, regardless of the form of business entity.

For a business with numerous employees, unpaid trust fund taxes can add up quickly, and the trust fund penalty consequently assessed against a responsible person can be huge. Not only that, the penalty is not dischargeable in bankruptcy.

CONSEQUENCE: Failure to Properly Withhold and Pay Over Employment Taxes Could Result in Criminal Employment Tax Investigations of All Responsible Parties!
The tax law provides that “any person required to collect, truthfully account for, and pay over any tax imposed by” the Internal Revenue Code who willfully fails to do so, will, “in addition to other penalties provided by law, be liable to a penalty equal to the total amount of the tax … not collected … and paid over.” The term “any person” is important because this section of the law allows the IRS to pierce the corporate veil and proceed against any person bearing responsibility for the company’s failure to pay over trust fund taxes, thereby making that person – or persons – personally liable for the employer’s unpaid payroll taxes. That means the penalty can be imposed on any responsible person, regardless of the form of business entity.

Even worse, failing to pay trust fund taxes can lead to criminal charges, since a willful failure to pay over or collect tax is a felony punishable by up to a $10,000 fine. five years in prison, or both. However, the IRS reserves criminal charges for the worst cases, usually where the responsible person diverted the money for his or her personal use, as opposed to a situation of facing hard times and using the money to pay other creditors in an attempt to keep the business afloat.
