Agreements with creditors didn’t shield president from trust fund recovery penalty

The Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, affirming the district court, has held in Newbill v. U.S. that the president, treasurer, and majority shareholder of a construction company was liable for the trust fund recovery penalty under Code Sec. 6672. He was a responsible person, and agreements that gave creditors joint control over the company’s accounts didn’t shield him from the penalty.
