Unsettled payroll taxes and unfiled payroll tax returns can lead to severe financial consequences and even potential prison sentences, yet many employers remain unaware until it's too late. 

This ticking time bomb poses a threat that, if neglected, can leave individuals devastated in its wake. Civil penalties alone can amount to roughly 50% of the outstanding tax and may be personally imposed on the business owner and others. The silver lining is that with timely action by a tax professional, this impending disaster can be averted.

Despite a small business owner's lack of malicious intent, the IRS takes unpaid payroll taxes seriously, wielding significant powers for collection. By the time the IRS catches up with the employer, often years later, irreparable damage has been done. Businesses may close, friendships strained, and marriages dissolved. Tax professionals must grasp the responsibilities and potential civil and criminal repercussions associated with unpaid payroll taxes. A deeper understanding enables them to assist clients in risk mitigation and shield their firms from civil penalties. 

This webinar, led by Robert Nordlander, an instructor with over 20 years of experience as an IRS special agent specializing in payroll tax crimes, guides CPAs in evaluating their clients' payroll tax issues and advising on the most effective paths to resolve tax debt.
