I received a letter in the mail from the State of Michigan about back taxes that my employer owes, however I am not an officer of the corporation, can I be held responsible for these taxes? Is this reason enough for me to quit and qualify for unemployment benefits? I am also wondering if it is illegal for my boss to ask me to write checks from an account that he knows is in a negative balance? Would I qualify for unemployment benefits if I quit because I was asked to do something illegal or I did something that I didn't know was illegal at the time and quit upon finding out it was?
thank you for any information you could provide.
