Types of Employment Tax Scams that The Law Offices of Michele Finizio can help with 

Employment tax is a broad term that encompasses a wide range of taxes that employers are required by law to withhold and pay to the government. These include social security, federal income tax, unemployment taxes, and Medicare. However, some employers are tempted not to pay these taxes and therefore defraud the government of these taxes. 

Employment tax scams can take on various forms. Some of the most common types of employment tax scams that the team at The Law Offices of Michele Finizio has dealt with include: 

  • Pyramiding 

This is one of the most common types of employment tax scams. The employer withholds the taxes. However, they do not pay them to the IRS. The money that is collected is instead used by the employer for their personal expenses or for the business. 

  • Employee leasing 

In this instance, the employer hires a third party to handle their HR needs including the payroll. This third party collects the employment taxes. However, they do not pay taxes to the government. The money is instead used for their own gain. 

  • Paying cash 

Employers can arrange to pay their employees in cash. This enables them to avoid paying employment taxes on behalf of the employees. 

  • Falsifying tax returns 

This may include failing to file tax returns, underreporting wages on tax returns, or the amount owed in taxes. 

  • Misclassifying employees 

Employers may classify employees wrongly e.g. as independent contractors. This enables them to avoid paying employment taxes as they are not responsible for the taxes of independent contractors.

How did my business end up on the IRS audit list?

There are various ways that companies can end up on the IRS audit list. These include: 

– You fit a pattern or were picked at random

The IRS uses various formulae to identify companies to put on their audit list. Your company may have been selected at random or may fit the criteria based on a pattern. 

– Your returns don’t fit the expected pattern 

If your company has been in business for a while, you have been filing returns for a while. If you file returns that deviate significantly from previous returns with no justifiable reason, your company may be added to the IRS audit list. For example, if your income shows a significant drop or rise, you will need to provide a reason for the changes to the IRS. 

– If there are other companies in your network being audited 

The IRS may include your company in their audit list simply because you are associated with a company or individual on their audit list. For example, if your suppliers or a company you supply is placed on the audit list, you may be included on the audit list as well.
