ARDC Charges Lawyer With Failing To Properly Report and Pay Federal Employment Taxes

BEFORE THE HEARING BOARD:

The ARDC has charged a lawyer with failing to accurately report and pay federal employment taxes. Specifically, the ARDC has alleged that the respondent attempted to reduce his employment tax liability by treating some payments to his employees as reimbursements for expenses. As a result the respondent allegedly violated Rule 8.4(a)(4) and 8.4(c).

Obviously, this raises an issue for solo practitioners and small firms.
