Recent Civil Employment Enforcement News
The Tax Division continues to pursue civil injunctions against employers and their principal officers who willfully fail to truthfully collect, account for and deposit employment tax. The terms of the injunction impose various requirements and prohibitions, including the obligation to comply with the law and provide current notice of each deposit to the IRS, as well as restrictions on opening and operating new businesses and transferring or dissipating assets. When employers violate these injunctions, the Tax Division stands ready to seek orders of civil or criminal contempt, including incarceration of the principal officer(s), to bring the business into compliance. And, where appropriate, we will seek compensation, from the principal officers and/or the business, for the damage the contempt has caused.
