Liability for Uncollected Taxes
The IRS and Minnesota Department of Revenue take a close look at the returns of owners and operators of businesses, particularly cash-based operations such as bars, restaurants and nightclubs. It is not unusual for owners to receive official notice that their personal income tax returns and business tax returns and records are under review for unreported income or failure to pay sales taxes on revenues or withholding tax on employees. Often, corporate officers are surprised to learn that they may share responsibility for unpaid tax liability, in the event the corporate tax structure does not protect them from liability.
If you are the owner or operator of a business in Minnesota or western Wisconsin, and have received notification of an audit by the IRS or Minnesota Department of Revenue regarding an audit for possible tax evasion or underpayment of taxes, talk to our tax attorneys at Pridgeon & Zoss, PLLC well in advance about responding to the notice.
