The IRS is aggressively pursuing its employment tax audit initiative which is to ensure that companies are not improperly treating employees as independent contractors. The IRS may reclassify workers treated as independent contractors as employees as part of a payroll tax audit. If the workers are reclassified then the business owner is now responsible for past withholding taxes that would have been collected under the new classification. Employers should be concerned that a payroll tax audit could result in significant tax liabilities.
Robert T. Leonard, Esq., CPA, has more than 20 years of experience in resolving worker classification audits and other tax-related matters. Mr. Leonard works aggressively to ensure that a proposed IRS reclassification is defeated by examining all possible consequences in the event the employer will be assessed a significant tax liability.
