IRS Completes Unprecedented Campaign Targeting Employment Tax Crimes
By: Kevin Murphy, Esq.
In our most recent blog post, we discussed the importance of timely payment of payroll taxes and how serious the IRS is taking the issue of criminalizing the Trust Fund Recovery Penalty. As a follow up, we wanted to pass along a recent news release from the IRS that highlights the conclusion of an unprecedented two week civil and criminal enforcement campaign to “combat employment tax crimes”. In the campaign, the IRS took several dozen legal actions against “suspected criminals”, resulting in 12 criminal indictments and the sentencing of six individuals or businesses for crimes associated with payroll taxes. Clearly, the IRS is very serious about payroll tax enforcement. Click here to read the article and to understand how serious the IRS is taking this issue.
