Another Tax Case in the Media

Lynda J. Mead, of Washington, pleaded not guilty in her initial appearance before the U.S. District Court in Seattle this morning. She is facing a total of eight counts of willful failure to pay her federal income taxes.

Ms. Mead has been accused of failing to pay the IRS over $357,000 that she withheld from employee’s paychecks. Her trial is scheduled on July 14 before Judge Ricardo S. Martinez.
Although payroll taxes can be confusing they are very important. My law firm gets dozens of calls per day from small business owners who are confused by payroll taxes and now find themselves in debt to the IRS.

While my firm can help, it is better to ensure that you never find yourself with IRS payroll tax liability in the first place. The best way is to ensure that someone who understands payroll taxes is administering your payroll. If you do not have a competent payroll administrator on staff and / or cannot figure out how to handle payroll taxes on your own, then seek-out a third-party payroll administrator.
