Small Business Owners: Do You Have Payroll Tax Problems?

If So — You MUST Read This Special Report to Protect Yourself and Your Business From the IRS!

It’s hard being a small business owner today, trying to pay your employees their paychecks every week, and pay the IRS all those payroll taxes! A lot of times when money is short, you pay the employees first. It’s a natural thing to do—you need to take care of your employees, even if you have to skip paying yourself! Besides if you don’t pay them, they’ll quit and you will have to hire new people all the time. And who has the desire or time to do that?

If you owe Payroll Taxes, you are in danger of losing your business...

The IRS Doesn’t Care About Your Financial Problems They Just Want You to Pay Your Payroll Taxes!

The IRS doesn’t care if you can’t pay your employees. They don’t care if they put your employees out on the street. They don’t care if you can’t collect your receivables. They don’t care if one of your largest and best customers just went “belly-up”. They don’t care if we’re still in the grips of the Great Recession. All they care about is you have money that belongs to them and they will do whatever they have to, even put you out of business, to collect it. They don’t care who you are, or even what business you are in.

Penalties for failing to file and pay your payroll taxes are the “kiss of death” for any small business owner. They tack on penalties totaling 33% in just the first 16 days! And it doesn’t stop there. The IRS adds interest on top of the penalties too. It is not uncommon that a payroll tax liability doubles in short order. And if you don’t pay them or work something out, they will shut you down! It’s much less work for the Revenue Officer, as most are lazy, to simply close you down than work out an arrangement with you.

They IRS Will Collect — Or They Will Shut You Down

It’s as simple as that. The IRS is the most brutal collection agency on the planet. They have more authority than the President of the United States! And they have all the ways and means to do whatever it takes to collect what’s owed to them. You didn’t wake up in the morning, go to work, and say to yourself, I’m not paying my payroll taxes because you didn’t want to. The money simply wasn’t there. It’s not your fault. One week you’re short of cash. It was a slow week, a customer’s check bounced, or any number of legitimate reasons that just prevent you from paying the IRS. You’re a good person. You figure you will make it up the next week. But then next week comes and goes, and you realize you still don’t have enough money to make that payroll tax deposit. And then the entire situation starts “snow-balling” into an avalanche.

Don’t Bother to Call the IRS To Talk Your Way Out Of this Predicament

If you were to call the IRS, and were able to get through after waiting on “hold” for an hour, and try to explain your situation—you might as well have a conversation with the wall—because they don’t care. The IRS representative that you’re talking to probably makes $13 - $14 an hour, and is poorly trained. Do you think they ever had to make a payroll in their life? Do you think they know what it’s like running a small business? Do you really think they will have any sympathy for you? Not only is the answer “NO” but they can also dictate the fate of your case. What they will try to get, while you’re on the phone, is all your personal and financial information. They want to know where you bank; they’ll want to know all about your customers who owe you money, they’ll want to know about the value of all your assets, like your home, cars, motorcycles, etc. Why? Because now they have all the information they need to levy your bank accounts, take your receivables and seize your property.

The IRS Has the Right to Just Come In And Shut You Down!

Did you see the IRS Hearings on TV lately? Did you see how badly the IRS treated and harassed all of those conservative not-for-profit organizations! Did you see the high ranking female employee, who was in charge of this scandal, plead the 5th amendment rather than telling the truth to the American people? Can you believe the IRS does these kinds of things to their own citizens?

I have rarely seen any IRS employee be disciplined for violating the law. They just go about their job as if nothing even happened. How do you think they’re going to deal with you, the small business owner?

Let me ask you a question. If you were accused of a civil or criminal offense, would you go to court without a lawyer? I wouldn’t. Well it’s the same thing here with the IRS. Owing 941 payroll taxes is a different animal than owing 1040 income taxes. It could turn into a criminal matter quickly. Why? Because the money you owe them for payroll taxes has already been deducted from your employee’s paychecks for withholding purposes. It’s not your money to begin with; The IRS has entrusted you to hold this amount, on behalf of your employees, and pay it over to the IRS when you issue paychecks. The IRS looks at this as if you “stole” from them. The IRS gives your employees credit for the withholdings and fully expects you to pay this amount over to the IRS at the same time you pay your employees.

Even If Your Business is Shut Down — You’re Not Out of the Woods

After they padlock your doors, they will go after you personally. The IRS is a very special creditor. They don’t need a court order to go after your personal assets. So your problem has just gotten bigger. It’s enough to make anyone paranoid, with the IRS stalking you looking to get your money any way they can.
