What are the Payroll Tax Laws?

Payroll taxes are state and federal taxes that an employer is required to keep and/or pay to the employees that work for a company.

The employer has to match the amount of Social Security and Medicare taxes with funds from the company. The employer also takes care of the taxes that are generated from the State and Federal unemployment.

If a person is trying to download a payroll tax update and is getting an error (15212). It states that "The location set for the shared download is not accessible”. What does this mean?

Another issue could be that the last updated file has been renamed and is a read only file that can’t be accessed or overwritten.

Once those steps are taken, the person will receive an assessment date. If there are problems with the Payroll Tax Return then the person can seek professional assistance that could help with the case against the Internal Revenue Service
