Winston - Greensboro Attorney

Our Areas of Practice

From its offices in Winston-Salem and Greensboro, Hartsoe & Associates, P.C. provides legal services to North Carolina individuals and businesses. Our attorneys focus on guiding clients toward cost-efficient and effective solutions to their legal problems.

Help for Individuals

Income Tax/IRS Problems

Get the IRS off your back … Now! We can help you negotiate with the IRS or State Department of Revenue on past-due income and payroll taxes, and can help you pursue options that include:

  • Offers in compromise: paying a much lower amount to erase all of your tax debt, if you qualify. Unlike the others advertising out there, we will not tell you this is a sure bet. In fact, it is rare that the IRS will do this. We can help determine if your case qualifies and submit all the necessary paperwork.
  • Stop wage garnishment
  • Abatement (elimination) of penalties
  • Appeals of tax levies or tax liens
  • Hardship status
  • Installment agreements
