Beaver County Payroll Supervisor Fired For Ignoring IRS Notices


IRON GATE TRAIL. THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT SAYS IT’S THE EIGHTH RABID ANIMAL IN THE COUNTY SO FAR THIS YEAR. BEAVER COUNTY IS IN TROUBLE WITH THE IRS AND IT COULD MEAN TAXPAYERS ON THE HOOK FOR HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS. THE IRS HAS PUT A LIEN ON THE COUNTY OF THE FAILURE TO PAY TAXES. THERE WAS A MAJOR FOLLOW-UP IN THE PAYROLL OFFICE, LIVE FROM THE COURTHOUSE WITH MORE ON WHAT HAPPENED. THE SUPERVISOR OF THE PAYROLL OFFICE WAS ABRUPTLY FIRED AND MEANWHILE, BEAVER COUNTY OFFICIALS ARE SCRAMBLING TO FIND WAYS TO PAY OFF A NEARLY $400,000 IRS LIEN . BEAVER COUNTY TAXPAYERS MAY BE ON THE HOOK FOR $400,000 TO THE IRS AND COUNTY PAYROLL SUPERVISORS, BARBARA ROSSI, LOST HER JOB AFTER BEING BLAMED FOR THE FOLLOW-UP. FORTUNATELY, THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN ALL THE TIME . EVERY DAY IT COMES ACROSS YOUR DESK AND YOU CAN SEE THAT THE IRS IS NOT ONLY THREATENED TO FILE A LIEN BUT THIS WAS TO THE TUNE OF ABOUT $378,000 . HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN? THE PAYROLL SUPERVISOR IGNORED THE NOTICES AND THEY PROMPTLY FIRED HER . WE BELIEVE THE BUCK STOPS WITH HER THROUGH OUR INVESTIGATION THAT SHE WAS THE ONE WHO IS RECEIVING THE NOTICES FROM THE IRS OVER THE PAST COUPLE YEARS. SECOND MEANS THE $378,000 BILL FROM THE IRS TO BEAVER COUNTY THAT’S BEEN INFLATED WITH HEAVY FINES AND COUNTY OFFICIALS SAY THEY KNEW NOTHING ABOUT IT . NO ONE FROM THE COMMISSIONER TO THE LAW DEPARTMENT TO HR WAS AWARE THE ISSUE WAS ONGOING, SO WHEN WE GOT NOTIFICATION OF THE LIEN ITSELF IT CAUGHT EVERYONE OFF GUARD. WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT? THE IRS IS CLAIMING THAT THE COUNTY FAILED TO PAY PAYROLL TAXES, THE COUNTY BELIEVES THEY DID IN FACT PAY THE PAYROLL TAXES BUT THEY DIDN’T FILE THE PROPER PAPERWORK. THEY ARE TRYING TO GET IT SORTED OUT AND HOPING TO NEGOTIATE THE PENALTY DOWNWARD. WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
