As a business owner or company officer, you have the responsibility to withhold your employees’ taxes, like Social Security, Medicare, and Income Tax, from their paychecks and deliver the money to the proper authorities at the proper times. The Trust Fund Recovery Penalty occurs when a business or corporation fails to pay their payroll taxes. Businesses, corporations or other responsible parties, will then be assessed a trust fund recovery penalty. The IRS can take money not only from the business’s accounts but also from the personal accounts of its owners and operators.
