Many employers outsource their payroll tax duties to third parties, such as payroll service providers. According to the IRS, third parties occasionally fail to remit the payroll taxes entrusted to them and may even then close their doors abruptly.

Like employers who handle their own payroll duties, employers who outsource this function are, in most instances, still legally responsible for payroll taxes that are due.  Call or visit our website for more information!
