Please join the Nonprofit Organizations Committee for a program on the topic of “The Forever Tax: IRS Trust Fund Penalties.”  Our presenter is Kneave Riggall, Attorney/Certified Tax Law Specialist.  This presentation will discuss the dire consequences of being a “responsible person” when employment taxes are not paid over to the IRS.  Please note that a responsible person can be anyone with knowledge of that nonpayment who is authorized to make such payment, i.e., is on a “signature card” for any bank account of any nonpaying employer, including all non-profit entities.

He also provides expert testimony on tax issues.  During his years as a tax lawyer, Kneave has represented taxpayers before: The IRS in audits, appeals, criminal investigations, collection matters, domestic and offshore voluntary disclosures, innocent spouse requests, offers in compromise, and whistleblower cases; the Franchise Tax Board and more than 20 other state tax agencies; the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals; the U.S. Tax Court; the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California; the Superior Courts of Los Angeles and Orange Counties; and Riverside County’s Assessment Board No. 1.
