Payroll taxes are the number one reason why small businesses get into tax trouble. Why? Because payroll taxes are the easiest loan to take and the hardest to repay. Easy to take because there is no loan document to complete and no banker to refuse: just keep the tax money and spend it. They are the hardest loans to pay back because once the IRS applies the various penalties and interest the balance increases to the point the business cannot easily pay it back. In addition, the IRS will begin pursuing the owner and other responsible employees personally for the trust fund portion of the taxes! Payroll Tax cases also are an opportunity for practitioners to make money while saving businesses, their owners and hundreds or even thousands of employee jobs.
If you are interested in adding to your existing practice, launching a new practice or just helping to save clients from the payroll tax nightmare they are in, this book is perfect for you.
