You Can Be Personally Liable For Unpaid Payroll Tax

Employees are dedicated to the companies for which they work. That dedication, however, has certain limits — limits like personal responsibility for an employer’s payroll taxes. At the Baker Law Firm, P.C., in Danbury, Connecticut, we represent individuals including bookkeepers, controllers and other business people who have the responsibility of paying an employer’s bills. We use our extensive legal knowledge and skill to get to the heart of your legal issue quickly — saving you time, money and frustration. We are committed to providing effective legal representation that helps clients achieve the favorable outcomes they depend on.

Employment taxes include those paid for withholding, Medicare, Social Security and unemployment compensation. Employers across all industries are responsible for paying these taxes on behalf of their employees.

We advocate on behalf of non-business owners, helping them defend their interests before the IRS. We understand that just because you may write payroll checks and make payroll decisions does not mean that you are personally liable for employment taxes. Our lawyers make compelling and effective arguments to convince the IRS that it cannot assert personal liability for employment tax against an individual.

To contact us regarding your employment tax concerns, call 203-648-4737.
