Responsible Person Assessments

Corporate officers and owners often have a responsibility to insure that all Payroll, Withholding and Sales and Use taxes are properly collected and remitted to the government. These funds are the company’s, non-remittance is viewed stealing from the government that they belong to. Therefore, the government can and will assess a responsible corporate officer personally for the amount of taxes that the business could not pay, as well as putting a lien on any and all of a responsible officer’s assets like a  house, seizing  bank accounts and wage garnishment.

 Assessments can be defended, and oftentimes the government is wrong about on whom the responsibility lies. A Tax Attorney at Goldburd McCone LLP can help you defend yourself in such an assessment and protect your assets from being seized.
