IRS payroll tax audits in Arizona: IRS help from Scott Allen, E.A.

Arizona IRS Payroll Audits

Payroll tax audits are conducted to: 

  • Verify that all money paid to employees is being reported to the IRS.
  • Verify that workers are being correctly classified as employees rather than independent contractors.
  • Verify that employers and employee are filing all required returns.
  • Making sure withholdings for Social Security and Medicare are being correctly reported and paid in on a timely basis.

Arizona IRS payroll tax audits close down more businesses than any other IRS action.  If you lose here the tax assessed against the business will eventually be assessed against you as the owner.  These taxes are not dischargeable in bankruptcy.

The IRS gets leads from business competitors, ex-employees and other government agencies such as Unemployment Offices.  Take Arizona IRS payroll tax audits seriously.  In fact I tell my clients that if they cannot pay their payroll taxes, they don’t have a business.  Do not fool yourself into thinking that you can “borrow” by not filing and paying your employees withholdings.  The interest and penalties are more than even profitable businesses can afford.  You would have more luck going to the casinos than not paying your payroll taxes on time to save your business.

Is my spouse responsible for my LLC tax debts?

LLC Tax Debts

The answer to this question depends on the fact and circumstances of each individual situation.  There are times when a spouse would not be responsible and there are other situations where the spouse is definitely responsible.

Here are some circumstances that would be factors:

Arizona is a community property state.  That means that both the IRS and the Arizona Department of Revenue can consider the income from both spouses to be considered earned 50/50 by each spouse even if they file separate returns.

LLC’s can be taxed as sole proprietorships, partnerships, C corporations or S corporations.  The type of entity you have elected to be taxed as will have an impact of a spouse’s liability of the LLC tax debt.

The type of tax is critical.  If it is payroll taxes and the spouse was preparing the payroll and had check signing authority would make the spouse responsible even if they were not an actual owner of the business.

Ownership is also a critical factor.  If both spouses are listed as owners and/or officers, then the likelihood of both spouses being held responsible for the taxes is most likely.

Dates of marriage and/or divorce of the marriage will affect the chances of the “innocent spouse” being held responsible or not responsible for LLC tax debts.

There are many other factors that can affect the spouse’s responsibility for tax debt.  It is best to consult with a knowledgeable tax representative to get a specific answer based upon the facts and circumstances of your situation.
