COVID-19 is having a drastic impact on Small Business Owners across the country. During any economic downturn, business owners often have to make difficult cash flow decisions. One solution is for business owners postpone making payroll tax payments to the IRS in order to make payroll for their staff, pay rent, etc…. While this allows them to continue to operate in the short-term, there are long-term implications of this decision that these business owners are often not aware of or are a risk they feel they need to take to survive.   How Does Payroll Tax Debt Differ?As a general rule, the IRS takes a more aggressive stance towards businesses that incur payroll tax debt.

If you've read my prior blogs, you already realize that Payroll Tax Debt is often the most complicated and risky tax debt issue to deal with, and as mentioned in the title, not only is the business liable for the tax, but the owner’s and other “Responsible Persons” can be held responsible for the Trust Fund portion of the debt. This is known as the Trust Fund Recovery Penalty, or the TFRP.  While the IRS can only collect the debt once, they can collect it from any and/or all “Responsible Persons”. Both the business and the “Responsible Persons” can be levied or liens placed against them. If you are a business owner, and the IRS coming after both your business and yourself personally, this can be devastating. For the most, payroll tax debt is fairly simple. You either owe it or you don’t...
