Willful failure to collect or pay over tax is a violation of law as set forth in section 7202 of the Internal Revenue Code. Section 7202 is more fully described below.
Employers have the duty to withhold certain amounts from employees' paychecks to cover income tax, Medicare and Social Security obligations. The IRS recognizes that often, when an employer runs into financial difficulties, the employer fails to remit those funds to the IRS in a timely manner.
More often than not an employer is not trying to defraud the government. However, employers sometimes get caught in a bind when, for example, they do not receive expected revenues that were supposed to be used to reimburse the trust fund. If you believe that you may be the subject of an IRS investigation you should consult an experienced tax lawyer as soon as possible.
