I've seen businesses go bankrupt because the inability to pay their taxes became hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt. They're paying people to manage audits, the lawyers and they're trying to back-pay bills all while they can barely afford to make payment plans with the government, when a lot of times it can be really simple like paying a $25 fee on the first.27 July 2022
