As Washington State and federal governments more aggressively pursue tax revenue, audits, collections and compliance activities are on the rise. Following a recent series of decisions and new regulations, the Washington Department of Revenue is stepping up tax audits of companies and individuals nationwide who do business in Washington State. Likewise, IRS audits and collection efforts are on the rise, with IRS rapid response increasingly evident.
We have experience in all phases of business tax dispute resolution and settlement of Washington State and federal tax issues, including businesses undergoing tax audits and needing to appeal adverse determinations.
We represent business owners in matters of Washington State sales and gross receipts taxes, as well as 941 payroll taxes and IRC section 6672 (100% penalty) matters
Businesses experiencing difficulty often withhold on employees but fail to remit the withheld taxes to the IRS. The business is liable then for the withheld portion, matching payroll taxes and penalties and interests.
Our office can help with repayment plans. Unfortunately, certain persons within the business can be held personally liable for that portion of the payroll taxes withheld from wages.
There are strategies available to minimize the exposure, and there may be defenses against personal liability depending on an individual’s role within the business. We can assist the business and potentially liable parties in both avoiding liability and working out payment plans.
