Why It Is Important To Report Employment Taxes Correctly

Employment tax matters are extremely complex. It involves categorization of workers as full-time employees or independent contractors. Besides reporting expenses correctly, you need to calculate payroll taxes with precision. The failure to report employment taxes accurately can result in serious legal difficulties. There are particularly harsh penalties that accompany the failure to deposit and the failure to file W-2 forms correctly. Infractions of employment tax laws can result in civil and criminal penalties, including significant fines. Such a failure can also result in disrupting business operations or even closing of the business. Besides your business facing a liability, it is also possible that you could face personal liability as well.
