Some businesses fail or just close for many reasons including the impact of COVID-19 and the resulting labor shortages. Business owners who close their doors must fulfill certain federal tax responsibilities and inform the IRS of their plans. Among the steps to take are: filing a final tax return; paying final compensation to employees and filing related returns; paying taxes owed; reporting payments to contractors that exceed $600; canceling employer ID numbers; closing business accounts and maintaining records for the required number of years.
