I recently started a new career, but the previous business I was a minority owner of (25%) is coming back to haunt me in what feels like extreme ways;  I paid my personal taxes in a timely fashion with what I knew at the time. Apparently the company taxes weren't filed and now I am being charged with extra taxes (and penalties) going back 3+ years.  I was considering bankruptcy, but now have no choice BUT to do it because of the vendors coming after me since I was one of the owners of the old company (the old company is no longer active).  Here's the whammy of all >> I am now being notified that I am liable for unpaid payroll taxes. This took me for surprise since I never had full access to the books, nor did I have check signing authority.
Any firms that can help me with this?
