PAYROLL TAXES

 If you have fallen behind with paying your business payroll taxes, you are not alone.  With the slow economy, it has become very difficult for many California business owners to keep up with their required payroll tax payments to the IRS and the California EDD. This is a serious problem that requires your immediate attention.  If you are in this situation, it is very important that you immediately contact me, California payroll tax lawyer Richard Carpenter, for assistance.  I help small business owners. Put my 30 years of experience in delinquent payroll taxes to work for you.

WARNING: The IRS has hired thousands of new agents nationwide - including in their San Diego and San Marcos, California offices. This means that more San Diego taxpayers will be to subject to greater IRS pressure.

WARNING: The State of California is also in severe financial crisis. This means that those San Diego taxpayers who have delinquent payroll taxes will be subject to greater EDD pressure from increased tax levies.

DID YOU KNOW THAT ...

  • The IRS and California EDD are each taking aggressive collection action against small businesses that fall behind with their quarterly payroll tax obligations.
  • The IRS and California EDD can each levy on your business bank accounts to obtain their delinquent payroll tax money - causing you havoc when trying to pay your other bills.
  • The IRS and California EDD can each contact your customers and demand (via a levy) that they pay them directly instead of paying your business - leaving you with more cash flow problems.
  • The IRS and California EDD can each file a tax lien against your business.  A tax lien is a public record that your business is behind with their required payroll tax payments.  Your competitors will then see that your business is in serious financial trouble.
  • An IRS Revenue Officer can make a surprise in-person visit to your business or your home to demand immediate payment.
  • The IRS and the California EDD can both take steps to personally hold you responsible for your company's nonpayment of payroll taxes.  This is called the Trust Fund Recovery Penalty - IRS code section 6672 and California code section 1735 .  Even though your business is a corporation, that will not shield you from the IRS and California EDD coming after your personal assets.  Not only is your business at risk, but so are your own personal assets - including your home. 

SAN DIEGO TAX LAWYER RICHARD CARPENTER CAN HELP YOU BY ...

  • Setting a "tax game plan" with you that provides the most effective solution to your business payroll tax problems.
  • Communicating directly with the IRS and California EDD, so that you never have to meet with them. 
  • Eliminating possible surprise visits to your business or home by the IRS.
  • Determining whether an IRS and EDD approved monthly repayment plan allowing you time to "catch up" is your best option.
  • Determining whether an Offer-In-Compromise is your best option to resolve all of your payroll tax issues. (Note: please see my separate California Offer in Compromise section for additional details.)
  • Utilizing, when appropriate, your Collection Appeal Rights and Collection Due Process hearing rights.
  • Negotiating with the IRS and California EDD to possibly avoid future levies against your business bank accounts.
  • Having my specially trained staff prepare and file multiple quarters of delinquent IRS and California EDD payroll tax returns quickly and effectively.

RICHARD CARPENTER'S EXPERIENCE ...

     I am one of the leading tax dispute attorney's in the United States. For the past 30 years, I have successfully represented thousands of clients in resolving their IRS tax disputes. I have the knowledge and 30 years of experience to obtain the best appeals settlement possible.

     I am a part-time tax law professor at the University of San Diego School of Law, a Certified Tax Law Specialist by the State Bar of California, and the author of 14 published articles, including some of the leading articles resolving IRS tax disputes.

I have been recognized as one of the Top San Diego County Attorneys in 2007, 2009 and 2010 by the San Diego Daily Transcript legal newspaper and was also named a "Super Lawyer" in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.

     Unlike some tax controversy defense attorneys, I did not start out my legal career as an IRS attorney using the Tax Code against honest taxpayers. I also did not start out my legal career as a federal prosecutor working to put good people in prison for some mistakes on their tax returns. Instead, I have devoted my entire 30 year legal career helping to defend hardworking, family-oriented taxpayers against the far and powerful reaches of the Internal Revenue Service and I am proud of that accomplishment. Being an effective tax controversy defense attorney is a mindset and I have had that tax defense mindset for my entire 30 year legal career.

WARNING ABOUT "TAX RESOLUTION" COMPANIES

Don't be fooled by some of those "tax help" companies who advertise on the TV, radio and internet. Many of these "tax help firms" have lots of of consumer complaints. Here are three examples:

1) On August 23, 2010, the California Attorney General filed a $34 million dollar lawsuit against the Sacramento based tax help company Roni Deutch, the Tax Lady. The Attorney General alleges that Tax Lady Roni Deutch "engaged" in a heartless scheme that swindled people with tax problems... she promises to signigicantly reduce their IRS tax debts... but providing little or no help." Roni Deutch has now closed and left its clients stranded.

2) On May 13, 2010, the Attorney General of Texas charged Tax Masters with multiple violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act. According to their Attorney General, "a state investigation and nearly 1,000 customer complaints indicate that the defendants (Tax Masters) routinely misled customers about the nature of their tax resolution service agreements." Tax Masters has recently filed for Bankrupcy and left its clients stranded.

3) As reported by the Wall Street Journal, J.K. Harris, a South Carolina based tax help company - was sued by the Attorney General from 18 different states after it was found that this company didn't get consumers the tax relief it promised. According to the North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper, "many consumers paid J.K. Harris for tax help and got nothing but headaches in return." The Massachussetts Attorney General Martha Coakley also stated that J.K. Harris "took advantage of people who paid for tax assistance and, in some instances, profited by taking their money and not giving them any help at all. J.K. Harris has recently closed and left its clients stranded.
