Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
You have a breach of contract action, but only for the damages that you have been forced to pay that the agreement covered that he should have paid. So if he was supposed to pay the IRS $XXXX then if he doesn't, and you had to, then you can sue him for that amount under a breach of contract case.
It wouldn't give you the right to take the business back, only seek damages in the form of reimbursement for anything you have paid..
