The IRS views failing to pay payroll taxes as the cardinal sin of tax delinquency because a large portion of the payroll taxes are your employees' withholdings.  In the eyes of the IRS, not paying your company's payroll taxes is tantamount to stealing your employees' money.

As a result, penalties for failing to pay your payroll taxes and filing your payroll tax returns on time are much more severe than other types of penalties. They can drastically multiply the amount you owe in a very short time.

If you are behind on paying payroll taxes for your company, the IRS will be extremely aggressive pursuing collection of these taxes.  Rather than allow you to continue amassing additional payroll tax liabilities, they can seize your business assets, or worse, close you down, sell your assets at auction, and put you out of business.

If you are behind on your payroll taxes, we advise you not to meet with the IRS on your own.  How you answer their initial questions can determine whether you stay in business or not.  It is in your best interest to have professional help in this situation.
