Q: I have the county tax collector telling me that I have to pay the unpaid taxes for the company that I used to manage?
I was the manager for a year, but that shouldn’t make me responsible for their taxes. Is this legal?
It depends on your level of responsibility for the failure to pay the money and the type of tax. For instance, if your company collected a county tax from others and then used those collected taxes for something else, you in a deep mess. I refer these cases to Guy C Crowgey, Esq. in Richmond, VA. http://richmondtaxlaw.com/attorneys/
