The 941 Payroll Tax Resolution Process: An Introduction

If you are a construction or trade contractor and you owe Trust Fund Payroll taxes to the IRS, you are in the right place. We know you don’t have a ton of time to waste. You wear a lot of hats (sometimes quite literally):

  • Managing projects
  • Handling the operations work
  • Hiring and firing staff
  • And likely also on-site doing labor assignments as needed

We know it keeps you busy all hours of the day.

You deserve a chance to get things moving in the right direction. That’s what The Tax Blueprint (our blog) is meant to help you do.

What is Tax Resolution?

Tax Resolution is the process of getting a taxpayer’s tax debt corrected with the IRS. In essence, it’s a chance for a fresh start. It is also a way to negotiate a plan to pay taxes from the past.

Tax resolution is like demolishing a house and then rebuilding a house from the ground up. Tax resolution becomes the foundation for building a good tax house and becoming a “good little taxpayer”.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS)

If you aren’t a “good little taxpayer”, the IRS can do nasty things to you that are legal:

  • Liens on business property and assets
  • Levy or seizure of business property and assets
  • Massive penalties and interest for a number of reasons.

The IRS is a collection agency, so they have a host of resources to legally collect your debt. And everything they do is to do one thing:

To collect a debt; it is really that simple.

At the end of the day, the IRS does not want to levy your payroll bank account. But they will because it might help you move into action to finally resolve your tax debt.

Get Your Payroll Tax Debt Taken Care Of

Tax resolution, and specifically 941-payroll tax resolution, can be complex. Resolving your case with the IRS is not an easy process. There are a lot of things to keep in mind and a lot of moving parts. The IRS Code, IRS Manual, and IRS Publications are typically anything but easy to understand. Our blog, The Tax Blueprint will help you with actionable steps to get your tax debt taken care of.

We didn’t want to cut any corners providing information to you. Instead, we turned the entire tax resolution process into a few different articles. Each of these articles include bite-sized, digestible information and specific actions to get your case back on track.
