Although understanding all the steps involved in preparing and filing payroll tax returns is important in avoiding mistakes, it is equally important to resolve common questions related to payroll tax problems. Having said that, in this blog, we answer some frequently answered questions about payroll tax problems. Take a look.

What are possible payroll tax problems?

Employers, by law, are required to withhold three separate types of taxes from their employees. In case an employer is unable to follow the procedure properly, they can face a number of payroll tax problems. Payroll tax problems occur usually when you didn’t file tax returns or didn’t have the required finances to pay the tax.

What are the rules to settle IRS payroll tax problems?

The IRS has very strict rules for business who do not pay their payroll taxes on time. It is, therefore, extremely difficult for employers to settle payroll tax problems, however, it is not impossible. The IRS  states special rules that apply when an employer wishes to settle payroll tax problems. A few of the special rules are:

  • Employers must be up-to-date for at least 2 quarters with their Form 941 payroll tax payments before they file for a settlement offer.
  • Employers must have filed Form 941 for the most recent tax year.
  • Employers must have filed Form 1040 for the most recent tax year.

What steps are needed to deal with the IRS?

When facing IRS payroll tax payment problems, it is important to know the steps that are needed to deal with the IRS. You must:

  • Collate up-to-date and accurate financial information, including income and expenses statements.
  • Fill an IRS Form 433-A and 433-B on the business. The Form 433-A determines an employers expenses, income, and assets, whereas, the Form 433-B solely determines the types of assets a business may have.
  • Create a detailed budget form, including personal expenses
  • Check whether you filed the most recent Form 940, Form 941, and Form 1120 – if needed.

I would like to thank Mr. Nick and his staff for the superb help that I received from them. My IRS problem was resolved quickly and efficiently. It took 2 visits to convince me that I was over my head. I thought that I could call the IRS, appeal my tax notices and settle on a payment plan on my own. After many phone calls to the IRS, waiting sometimes more than 4 hours with no resolution to speak of, it proved to be extremely difficult and stressful. Revisiting Mr. Nick was a huge wake up call. My account was reviewed, and a payment plan was established with the IRS within a week. I will be forever grateful to the staff who worked on my case and especially to Lorna who listened to me vent while going through this painful process.

I cannot say enough good things about Nick and his team. When I first met with Nick he was up front, honest, friendly and efficient. When I worked with one of his attorneys, Eric B, I was just as pleased. All of the staff there are nice and very helpful. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get help with my issue. Over 6yrs I tried getting through and getting anywhere with the IRS and hardly made any progress. I know this may not be the case for all, and even I thought it would take longer than it did, but 3mos and they had my situation straightened out. I still can't believe it. Thank you thank you THANK YOU for all that you did for me. This is a huge burden gone out of my life now thanks to you. If anyone needs help out there, I know you may not want to shell out more money to get their help but it may just save you in the long run.

During a time in which competent, professional service at a fair price seems to have disappeared, Mr. Nemeth and his team are a refreshing breath of fresh air.From my first phone call to the final settlement of our case with a non-responsive IRS, they under-promised, over-delivered and were in constant courteous contact to make sure we knew exactly what was happening and where we stood.I hope to never need their services again, but, should I receive another friendly letter from the IRS...I know who to call!
