How can the Brazilian government protect the rain forests?

I think that the Brazilian government could enforce better laws to limit the amount of trees that can be cut down and they should monitor it carefully, as at the moment commercial loggers are still cutting down trees that are protected by law, so this should be monitored. However, I don't really think that this is enough to stop the destruction as these people do not care or realize the importance of the rainforests but they have to do something as it is currently not working.

How can you check if your employeer is paying your withholding taxes?

That is the job of the Federal Government and State in which you live. It is not something you can or should be involved with. If they fail to pay, you are not liable, they are. The easiest way to see if they are paying at all is if they still give you a check. The Federal Government is fairly quick to shut down companies that don't pay.
