Payroll Trust & Recovery Funds Attorney in Port Saint Lucie

Obtaining Solutions for Your Payroll Tax Issues

Companies and employers withhold payroll taxes, which they must send to the IRS. To facilitate payment of these withheld taxes, the IRS can issue a Trust Fund Recovery Penalty (TFRP) against you if you have not sent the unpaid trust fund taxes. Once the IRS determines that you have failed to turn over the taxes you have been entrusted with, it will send you a Notice of Intent to impose the TFRP.

If you have received a notice from the IRS that it will assess a TFRP against you, you must immediately speak with our experienced tax attorney/CPA/IRS EA for guidance on resolving it. The longer you wait to settle this tax debt, the worse off you will be. IRS will add interest, penalties, and further consequences could occur.

We can help you address this problem by identifying your options and navigating you through the process.

What Is the Trust Fund Recovery Penalty?

The Trust Fund Recovery Penalty (TFRP) allows the IRS to penalize anyone responsible for withholding, accounting, depositing, or paying certain payroll and employment taxes if they fail to turn those funds over to the agency. The TFRP was enacted because employers are entrusted to collect and hold an employee's taxes on behalf of the IRS; failure to pay those funds back to the IRS constitutes a criminal offense, so the TFRP acts to deter employees from taking these reserved funds for their use.

Who Might Be Responsible for the TFRP?

The IRS has the authority to assess a penalty against anyone responsible for the entrusted withholdings. The IRS interprets this to apply to nearly anyone with the (1) duty and (2) power to direct the entrusted withholdings in some capacity. 

What to Do If You Fall Behind on Payroll Taxes

If you have received notice of an impending Trust Fund Recovery Penalty, it is essential to act quickly. You have 60 days to file an appeal to contest the agency's findings or propose an alternative resolution. Hiring an experienced tax attorney intimately familiar with the Trust Fund Recovery Penalty process will undoubtedly help increase the chances of securing a positive outcome.
