The Vaughns (the debtors) tried to argue that they Ms. Vaughn was not a responsible person under Section 6672 of her Go Tell It Ministry (GTI) since she had delegated the duty to a Fiscal Administrator within the Fiscal Affairs Department of GTI. However, it was ruled within the Johnson v. United States case that an individual cannot avoid duty to assure that withholding taxes are paid to the government simply by delegating responsibility to subordinates. (Johnson v. United States 203 F. Supp. 2d 416, 423 [89 Aftr 2d 2002-1000]). Background The Vaughns filed for Bankruptcy under Chapter 13 on September 17, 2009 for relief for their debt.
