As a business owner, it is important to ensure that all of your federal and state tax obligations are met, including paying employment taxes to the IRS. Failure to do so can result in serious consequences, as demonstrated by the recent case of Ari Weingrad in Miami. If you have failed to file a tax return for one or more years, or have taken a position on a tax return that could not be supported upon IRS scrutiny in an tax audit, eggshell tax audit, reverse egg shell tax audit or criminal tax investigation, you should speak with an experienced tax defense attorney as soon as possible about getting right with the government.
According to a Department of Justice press release, Weingrad, the owner and operator of Rent Max Miami and Rent Max North, pleaded guilty to willfully failing to pay over more than $850,000 in employment taxes to the IRS. Instead of fulfilling this obligation, Weingrad used corporate funds for personal expenses, including cashier's checks to himself and his wife and expenses related to a yacht.
This case serves as a reminder of the importance of properly handling employment taxes and the potential consequences of failing to do so.
