When you neglect to pay your payroll taxes on time, you will receive a warning from the IRS. If the issue is not resolved in a timely manner, there are several consequences that can become reality (and a nightmare) for you.

The IRS imposes a very harsh penalty when business payroll taxes are not paid. The penalty usually equates to the total amount of the taxes being owed.This is called a “Trust Fund Recovery.” Remember, when your payroll tax obligations are not met, you are breaking a binding contract you have with the United States Government.

IRC Section 6672(a) states that the blame for not paying business payroll taxes goes to “every responsible person” who willfully neglected to pay the payroll taxes. This means accountants, bookkeepers, and anyone with check signing ability can get the blame for the tax debt.
