The IRS came after my small business in Oklahoma City because of outstanding payroll tax issues. The IRS was right. We made an honest mistake. Are we still in trouble if we admit that? Do I need an Oklahoma City tax lawyer?

It is possible to make an honest mistake. As a small business owner, you have too many important things that need your immediate attention. An honest mistake is bound to happen with at least one of those things. 

However, the IRS takes even honest payroll tax mistakes seriously. Non-payment of payroll taxes is considered akin to theft by the IRS because you, as a business owner, are responsible for holding those taxes in trust for your employees. The penalties for non-payment of payroll taxes are, accordingly, steep, and you may be in trouble, even if you simply made a mistake that you are willing to rectify.

Accordingly, it is important to consult with an experienced Oklahoma City tax lawyer as soon as you know that a mistake has been made. Your Oklahoma City tax attorney can review what happened and help you resolve the problem as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Do not attempt to go up against the IRS alone. Instead, you deserve to have an experienced Oklahoma tax lawyer on your side to fight for justice.
