No, your payroll taxes are not a legal matter and does not necessarily require a Tempe AZ IRS Tax Attorney. If you are self-employed and have employees, you are required to make certain withholdings of a portion of wages and pay those to the government along with your portion as well. These withholdings include federal income taxes, Social Security and Medicare taxes and in some states, there is city as well as state taxes that need to be withheld.
Social Security and Medicare taxes are withheld from every employee paycheck. You as the employer are required to match these amounts up to certain limits. If you do not pay these taxes in on time there are severe penalties. Failure to make these tax payments can cause the IRS to eventually close down your business.
