Civil and Criminal Employment Tax Enforcement Efforts - Employers Beware
1 PM GMT
The government has enjoyed a string of victories against taxpayers who do not collect, account for and deposit employment taxes, and lists employment tax enforcement among its top priorities. This panel will address the efforts of the IRS and the Department of Justice with respect to civil and criminal employment tax enforcement. Topics will include the statutory authority and scope of injunctions, monitoring and enforcing those injunctions, recent developments with professional employer organizations (PEOs), common badges of fraud that may result in a criminal investigation, and recent prosecutions. The panelists will discuss common mistakes and misunderstandings among employers, and ways to come into compliance in an effort to avoid a criminal referral.
