As a Connecticut business owner, one of the surest ways to find trouble with the IRS is through mistakes in payroll deductions. Laws regarding the deduction and payment of taxes from employee paychecks is complicated and easy to misinterpret. However, some employers may misclassify their employees, which leaves workers without benefits and opens business owners to legal trouble.

Are you sure you shouldn't be paying payroll taxes?

As a business owner here in Connecticut, you may have people working for you. How you classify them determines whether you owe payroll taxes. If you improperly classify an employee as a contractor and fail to make payroll tax payments, you could end up on the IRS's radar.
