Employment taxes are an obligation for social security tax, Medicare tax, unemployment insurance and state disability program purposes. Some employment taxes are paid for by the employee and some are paid for by the employer, and some contributions are made by the employee and the employer.
Sometimes, an employer could be paying taxes withheld from paychecks. An employee can find out if this is happening by checking their paycheck stubs, W-2 and tax statements and looking for taxes withheld. If the employer is not withholding taxes, the employee is responsible for paying those taxes. The consequences for employers who do not pay taxes or report taxes legally are criminal and civil sanctions, fines and possible prison time.
If an employer does not pay appropriate employment taxes, the employee is responsible for his or her share of the federal income tax. If your employer's negligence to report or pay taxes are hurting you, contact a tax lawyer for assistance. A tax lawyer can help make sure that you will be able to claim Social Security, Medicare or unemployment benefits in the future and help you get through unfair employment tax evasion.
