Business Tax Debt Relief
Business owners have more responsibilities to the IRS than just filing income taxes as individuals; they also must pay on behalf of their company. Just as individuals sometimes have difficulty paying their income taxes to the IRS, both large and small business owners are sometimes in need of business tax debt relief. In general, there are four types of business taxes for which employers are responsible:
- Income tax - Whether gathered through withholding from employees or otherwise, employers (with very few exceptions) must pay an income tax for their company. Usually this is done throughout the year, as money is earned. If you fail to pay enough, you may have to pay an estimated income tax, which is not in your best interest.
- Self-employment tax - This tax is for people who work for themselves, and includes Social Security and Medicare.
- Employment taxes - Employment taxes are paid by the business owner on behalf of his or her employees. These include Social Security, Medicare, Federal Income Tax and Federal Unemployment Tax.
- Excise Tax - Excise taxes are bestowed on businesses that specifically manufacture, sell, or use certain products or services that require taxing. The cost of these taxes is often included in the price paid by the customer.

Employers in the United States are required by law to withhold certain payroll taxes from the paychecks of their employees, and to remit these taxes to the government. Payroll taxes include both federal and state income taxes, social security, and Medicare.
Sometimes employers neglect to pay the proper amount for all of their employees, which can result in back taxes attributed to employees. If there is a discrepancy between the taxes that you have had or should have had withheld and the amount received by the IRS, a tax professional can help you resolve any resulting debt.
