Man moves forward with civil tax litigation over tax withholding

| Mar 31, 2020 | Criminal/Civil Tax Litigation

Tax matters are not always easy to handle. Some people may believe that a mistake has occurred with their return or the withholding of their taxes, and though they may think that making the Internal Revenue Service aware of the issue would be enough, that is not always the case. In some instances, civil tax litigation is necessary.

New York readers may be interested in a lawsuit recently filed in another state against the IRS. According to reports, one man claims that the IRS is withholding more taxes from his paycheck than it should and has been doing so for the last three years. Apparently, the man is paying double the amount of Medicare and Social Security taxes than required. He indicated that his employer is making the deductions.

Though his employer is deducting the funds from his paycheck, the man also claims that the IRS is keeping the money in error. He stated that he does not have any delinquent taxes and that a Notice of Federal Tax Lien should be removed. He believes that the IRS has violated his rights under the U.S. Constitution. He hopes that his case will result in a refund of the excess withheld funds and that the withholding will stop.

It can be frustrating to feel that the IRS is not acting correctly in regard to tax withholding taxes from paychecks or other tax-related matters. As this case shows, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit in order to have the matter properly addressed. If New York residents believe that civil tax litigation may suit their circumstances, they may wish to receive an assessment of their ordeal from knowledgeable attorneys.
