What is payroll tax debt?
Business owners with employees have the responsibility of withholding, collecting and paying tax to the IRS. Those employees, in turn, trust their employer to withhold tax from their paycheck, and send those funds to the IRS.
What is a Factoring agreement?
If your business has a factoring agreement with a lender, you must to do everything you can to avoid a Notice of Federal Tax Lien (NFTL) from being filed. Once a NFTL is filed against your business, the 45-day clock starts ticking. This means that 45 days after the lien is filed, the IRS has first priority rights to your accounts receivable, making your lender second behind the Service. This will cause your factoring company to stop advancing you money immediately. Your choice is simple, pay the tax debt in full and get a lien release, or enter into a formal Installment Agreement with the IRS. You’ll also need to secure a tax lien Subordination from the Service.
Fortunately, the IRS is quite familiar with factoring agreements. The Service will often subordinate its lien position to that of the lender, as long as an Installment Agreement in place to satisfy the back tax debt. In the end, this arrangement keeps everyone happy. You get to keep your business open and pay your tax debt, your lender gets to keep advancing you money based on your accounts receivable, and the IRS is paid back the tax due in monthly installments.
