Trust fund taxes can cause big problems for small businesses. When an employer withholds a portion of their employee’s wages to pay income taxes, Social Security and Medicare taxes, that money is held “in trust”. It must be paid to the Treasury on regular schedule. Problems arise when the business uses those funds for other purposes, such as paying rent, utilities or suppliers. Many business owners fail to realize when they prioritized other creditors over the federal government is that the IRS can collect business back taxes from you personally.

Participants will also be made aware of payroll pitfalls that small businesses should avoid to avoid the trust fund recovery penalty, who is responsible for the trust fund recovery penalty, and how to help them if they find themselves facing the trust fund recovery penalty.
