The Truth About Unpaid Payroll Taxes. Selig & Associates can help


When it comes to unpaid payroll taxes and unfilled payroll returns, the IRS utilizes a scorched earth strategy of Enforced Collections. Enforced Collections happens when a Company doesn't pay its taxes, and an IRS Revenue Officer takes the Company's assets. Typically a Revenue Officer will levy the company’s bank accounts and if that isn’t enough, the Company’s Account Receivables; Equipment; Automobiles, etc. Enforced collections are extremely disruptive and entirely unpleasant. Additionally, the IRS has the authority and ability to close a business down for non-payment of payroll taxes. And if the business is already closed, or files for “bankruptcy protection” the IRS simply looks to the owner, as a personal guarantor. This includes penalties, interest, taxes and trust funds. In the case of a corporation or partnership, the IRS also looks to the person who was responsible for paying the company’s bills. In fact, the IRS will assess a 100% penalty against anyone who they feel or even suspect is responsible. Accordingly, if your business has fallen behind, you need an experienced advocate to stand up and protect your rights. With Selig & Associates by your side, you’ll be represented by an experienced federal tax practitioner and attorney every step of the way. Call us today for a free face to face consultation.

NYS Tax Department Doesn’t Want Taxpayers to be Represented by Lawyers and Accountants



On June 3rd 2019 the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance published a online article entitled “Resolve Your Tax Debt Directly with the Tax Department” subtitled “Taxpayers can save time and money by contacting a Tax Department representative themselves” 

Not surprisingly, the Tax Department is actively encouraging taxpayers to “work directly with New York State” without the aid of a tax attorney or accountant. 

The article invites taxpayers to call the State directly to: pay their balance in full; to set up a monthly payment plan, and to “discus their debt” with a State representative (who is in reality a Civil Enforcement Agent with the power to levy your bank account and garnish your wages). The article then quotes the Executive Deputy Commissioner of Taxation and Finance Andrew Morris, who says: “Taxpayers don’t need to hire outside help or enlist the services of a third party to settle their tax debt” and similar self-serving sentiments. 

But conspicuously absent from Mr. Morris’s lopsided observations are the many pitfalls that await these unsuspecting callers. For example, the State claims it will not levy certain exempt funds, e.g. Social Security, public assistancealimony, child supportunemployment, disability, workers compensationand pensions. Unfortunately they neglect to mention that there is no protection once these so-called “exempt funds” are deposited into a bank account. 

In fact the State can and will seize your entire bank account. And after your entire bank account has been seized the State frequently refuses to grant taxpayers so much as a partial release to pay for food, diapers, medication and health insurance. 

As for “payment plans” the State has 20 years to collect on tax debts - but that doesn’t stop them from demanding taxpayers make a “good faith deposit” and agree to full pay their debt in 24 to 36 months *This unnecessary time requirement is why the vast majority of taxpayer negotiated payment plans default. And when a taxpayer defaults (as most do) he or she is punished with even more levies and tougher payment terms. 

Lastly, taxpayers have rights that must be properly asserted within a prescribed period of time (known colloquially as the doctrine of “use it or lose it”).  And whether you like it or not, the State has no obligation to tell you your legal rights and possible options. Meaning, when the time to contest an erroneous tax liability expires, the debt becomes “fixed and final” and you're stuck with it. 

In conclusion, I suggest readers consider the severity of their debt and the likely consequences they will encounter before deciding to “go it alone”.

Queens Businessman Admits Stealing $251000 in Sales Taxes

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance announced guilty pleas to criminal tax fraud and grand larceny charges by a business owner and his two Queens businesses. Between March 1, 2009, and February 28, 2018, Pyong Chon Yim, 56, and his businesses, Advance Auto Sport Corp. and Advance Motor Sport Inc., located at 35-50 College Point Boulevard, College Point, NY, failed to remit nearly $251,000 in sales tax collected from customers. “Profiting off the backs of honest neighbors is not only bad business, it’s criminal,” said New York State Executive Deputy Commissioner of Taxation and Finance Andrew Morris. “This illegal activity robs local communities of critical funding for public programs and services New Yorkers rely on. We’ll continue to work with all levels of law enforcement, including the Queens District Attorney’s Office, to ensure those committing tax fraud are held accountable.” Acting Queens District Attorney John M. Ryan said, “The defendant collected tax dollars and then pocketed the cash. This is wholly unacceptable and not only cheats the local government, but also every other honest taxpayer. The defendant has admitted his guilt and will make full restitution. I want to commend the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance for their work in this case. We will continue to collaborate with our law enforcement partners to prosecute those who knowingly commit tax fraud.”

Psychiatrist Sentenced to 18 Months for Tax Evasion



A psychiatrist was sentenced to serve 18 months in prison for tax evasion, announced Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Caroline D. Ciraolo, head of the Justice Department’s Tax Division, U.S. Attorney Carole S. Rendon and Kathy A. Enstrom, Special Agent in Charge, IRS Criminal Investigation Field Office. According to court records, from as early as 2005, Sandra Vonderembse failed to pay taxes and filed and caused to be filed with the Internal Revenue Service false and fraudulent tax returns that included false statements regarding her income and the amount of tax due and owing.  Additionally, from 2009 through 2011, Vonderembse falsely claimed to have no taxable income and to owe no taxes, despite earning more than $240,000 each year while working as a psychiatrist.  Vonderembse used nominee entities to conceal income from the IRS, and sent fake financial instruments to the IRS in purported payment of her taxes.  In total, from 2005 through 2011, she attempted to evade more than $360,000 in income tax liabilities.
“Tax evasion is not a victimless crime,” Enstrom said. “We all pay when others swindle the government.  Tax evasion and tax fraud of this magnitude and with this degree of trickery, dishonesty and deceit, deserves to be punished.  The IRS and Department of Justice remain determined and vigilant in ferreting out such schemes to cheat the honest taxpayers.” In addition to the prison term imposed, Vonderembse was ordered to serve one year of supervised release and to pay restitution to the IRS in the amount of $565,128.

Owner of Restaurant and Pub Charged with Sales Tax Evasion! Multiple Felonies! $488,000 in Sales Taxes Allegedly, Allegedly, Allegedly




And now he’s facing multiple felonies for allegedly failing to remit $488,000 in sales tax collected from customers

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance and the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office announced the arrest and arraignment of the owner of D & D’s Restaurant and Pub, located at 191 South Main Street, New City, for allegedly failing to file sales tax returns and turn over more than $488,000 collected from customers. Thomas Schunke, 38, of 102 Robin Hood Lane, West Nyack, NY turned himself into investigators from the New York State Tax Department and the District Attorney’s office. He is charged with five felony counts of criminal tax fraud and one felony count of grand larceny. He’s accused of collecting $488,000 in sales tax from his customers from 2012 to 2018 and failing to pay that money to New York State, as required by law. In addition, he’s charged with failing to file sales tax returns from 2014 to 2018. He was arraigned at Rockland County Court on June 27 following a grand jury indictment. He is scheduled to return to court on July 3. “Business owners who disregard their obligation to pay the sales tax they collect violate the trust of their customers, deprive the communities where they operate of revenue needed for vital services, and put similar businesses at a competitive disadvantage,” said New York State Commissioner of Taxation and Finance Michael R. Schmidt. “We will continue to work closely with our partners in law enforcement to bring tax criminals to justice, and we thank the Rockland County District Attorney for prosecuting this case.” "As a matter of law, business owners must turn over sales taxes collected from customers,” said Acting Rockland County District Attorney Kevin Gilleece. “By purposefully evading his tax obligations, this defendant defrauded the state and all law-abiding taxpayers. My office will continue working with the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance to identify unscrupulous business owners and hold them accountable."
A criminal complaint is only an accusation; the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Defendant Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy to Defraud the IRS and Steal From an Organization Receiving Federal Funds


A Boca Raton, Florida, resident pleaded guilty to conspiring to impede the lawful functions of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and conspiring to steal from an organization receiving federal funds, announced Acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General Stuart M. Goldberg of the Justice Department’s Tax Division. According to court documents, from January 2013 through December 2017, Scott Jawetz and his co-defendants executed a scheme, using the company Blue Horseshoe Consulting Inc. (Blue Horseshoe), to obtain police reports, stolen from the Detroit Police Department, which contained automobile crash victim information. Jawetz and his co-conspirators used the stolen information to solicit automobile accident victims for medical and chiropractic services. Jawetz and his co-conspirators also underreported to the IRS gross receipts they received from Blue Horseshoe business operations and the total wages Blue Horseshoe paid to its employees. United States District Court Judge Matthew F. Leitman scheduled sentencing for Jawetz for Jan. 15, 2020. Jawetz faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine on each of the two conspiracy counts. Jawetz also faces a period of supervised release, restitution, and monetary penalties. Acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General Goldberg thanked special agents of IRS-Criminal Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, who conducted the investigation, and Tax Division Trial Attorneys Mark McDonald and William Guappone, who are prosecuting the case.
