BY STEVEN V. MELNIK

He is licensed to practice law in New York and New Jersey, and has more than 15 years experience helping individuals and businesses with tax, asset protection, and estate planning matters. This article is an adapted version of a chapter from his best-selling book, Tax Relief and Resolution: The Ultimate Guide to Paying Less to the IRS Starting Now (Flamenco Press, 2014).

A business is responsible for ensuring that taxes withheld from its W-2 employees’ payroll checks are paid. As an employer, a business is also liable for Social Security and Medicare payments and taxes and its employees’ contribution to these taxes. Staying current with payroll taxes should be a top priority for all businesses.

If you received a letter that reads ‘IRS Letter 1058/LT11’, know that it is a final notice from the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) reminding you about the balance you still owe. Moreover, if you do not resolve your delinquent matter, they will make an attempt to levy your bank accounts, garnish wages and other assets within the next thirty days. In most cases, a CP 504 (a final notice of your due balance) is sent before the IRS Letter 1058. Ideally, IRS Letter 1058/LT11 is more formal than other notices that you may have received by now. It will tell you that they will also be looking for other assets you own that can be levied. By then, you should have received prior notices that should have been addressed.

Tax representation by a tax lawyer for IRS audits and back tax settlements

Did the IRS claim that you did not report all your income? Did they disallow some of your expenses or deductions? Have you been audited, and the bank deposits were more than what you reported in sales and revenue? The IRS would generally recompute your taxes, and add stiff penalties and interest as well. You will learn about representation by tax lawyers and more as you keep reading on.

Did you receive an IRS or state tax lien notice, letter, postcard or phone call?

If you were being represented by a power of attorney, tax lawyer, CPA or an EA enrolled agent, your representative would have been able to explain to the IRS that not every deposit is income. Many taxpayers transfer funds from credit lines to meet urgent expenses, others obtain loans to pay accounts payable. So, to sum, not every deposit should be income to be taxed on. Only tax lawyers, CPAs, EAs can represent you before the IRS.

The trust fund recovery penalty (TFRP) can be applied to any responsible person who willfully fails to collect or pay trust fund taxes. The penalty amount is equal to the total amount of the tax that was not paid, up to the full amount. This is why it is sometimes known as the 100% penalty.

Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation!Marcie R.
★★★★★
Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!Marshall W.
★★★★★
I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends.Nancy & Sal V.
