Your employer submit the payroll deduction to the IRS, they don’t keep the money in the bank account. If they pay you weekly they have to submit the deductions weekly to IRS, if bi-weekly they submit bi-weekly.

It is possible for them to do this however most companies put the money into an account which is set up to do nothing more than to write a check to the IRS 4 times a year.

They are required to pay it to the government on a regular basis. If they wouldn't take it out, you'd have to make a payment at least every three months.

It wouldn't be right if they could keep it for the year - and that's not how it works. Depending on the total amount they withhold from all employees, and the frequency of pay periods, they have to deposit it through a bank to the IRS weekly or at the longest, monthly.

No, that money is paid to the IRS on a regular basis. How often the company needs to make those payments depends upon how large their payroll was the previous year. The payments are made monthly or more often depending upon the total payroll the prior year.
