Payroll Tax Matters
When you run a business and employ workers, you are responsible for handling payroll taxes. You need to deduct your employees’ taxes from their salaries and pay them to the IRS in their name. At the same time, there are proportionate amount of taxes you need to pay as a business for each of your employees.
Any delay or failure to pay due taxes will introduce interest and penalties which will grow over time. The IRS is more strict with companies than it is with individuals. It may take time before the agency knocks on the door. But eventually, they will and the business will have to face a heavy financial burden.
