The issue in GetHuman-johnfitc's own words
A massachusetts employer made a mistake (I think) and did not withhold state income tax for me (a mass resident) for employment performed in New Hampshire during **** (and part of ****). I sent person email with excerpt from DOR website, and she (mistakenly) said "that's only when you work in Mass and we send you out of state for like * weeks". She insisted they weren't obliged to withhold state income tax if I physically performed the service in New Hampshire. So now come tax time I find I have a large tax due. My understanding is they were legally obliged to pay DOR, have fiduciary duty, and still owe the money. Can I cause DOR to demand the money from them? Does DOR recognize that I shouldn't owe the money that my employer "owed" (in a fiduciary capacity) DOR? Is my former employer still legally obligated to pay DOR the money?*How do I proceed to pursue this?*Thank you.*Sincerely,*John Fitch *** *** ****
