Choose Your Time Zone:
When you have employees, you withhold their Medicare and Social Security contributions from their checks, and in most cases, you also withhold some income tax. These amounts are referred to as trust fund taxes, and you are obligated to send that money to the IRS. If you fail to make those payments, the government can charge a very serious penalty called the Trust Fund Recovery Penalty.
Congress passed a law that provides for the Trust Fund Recovery Penalty (TFRP) to encourage prompt payment of withheld income and employment taxes, including social security taxes, railroad retirement taxes, or collected excise taxes. These taxes are called trust fund taxes because you actually hold the employee's money in trust until you make a federal tax deposit in that amount.
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, we may find many companies closing or filing for protection under Chapter 11 of the federal bankruptcy code. In a high percentage of those cases, payroll taxes may not be paid leaving the owners (and others) personally liable for the unpaid trust fund portion of those liabilities.
