Tax Lawyers in North Carolina

Experienced Representation from Seasoned Attorneys

If you have a tax issue looming over your head, it may seem easier to ignore it for the time being. The longer you wait to get help, however, the worse the situation becomes. Interest and penalties will continue to mount unless you address the problem, head-on. It's better to resolve it now than wait until it escalates into something far more unmanageable.

You can get rid of the stress by requesting help from our experienced tax lawyers at Hartsoe & Associates. Based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, we help individuals and businesses throughout the Piedmont Triad Area resolve a wide range of tax problems. We can address virtually any state or federal tax issue in an efficient manner.

If you are facing one of these or any other tax issue, it's time to seek legal guidance:

  • Do you owe back taxes?
  • Did you fail to file your taxes?
  • Are penalties and interest from the IRS building up to an unmanageable total?
  • Has the IRS put a levy on your wages or your bank account?
  • Has the IRS placed a tax lien on your home?
  • Are you an employer who has mistakenly failed to pay payroll taxes into the payroll taxes trust fund?

Call (336) 390-4774 or contact us online to schedule a free, confidential consultation.

Helping You Find the Right Solution

Our North Carolina tax attorneys at Hartsoe & Associates have the experience and knowledge you’re looking for.

Depending on the specific circumstances, the types of solutions we propose to the IRS or state tax authority include:

  • Offers in compromise, in which we negotiate with the IRS to accept a settlement of your tax bill for less than the full amount, sometimes much less
  • Reduction or waiver of past penalties
  • Reduction of the tax debt through an audit or reconsideration
  • Installment agreements to pay the full amount, with penalties on hold so long as payments are made on time
  • Appeals, in which we ask that the case be assigned to a revenue officer rather than a staff member of the central collections department
  • Uncollectible status, where the IRS stops all collection action because we prove you cannot afford to make any repayment at this time

When warranted, we can negotiate with the IRS on your behalf, taking the burden from your shoulders.

Bankruptcy & Tax Debts

Under limited circumstances, bankruptcy may allow you to get rid of all or part of your tax debt. The analysis is complicated. Many bankruptcy attorneys will not deal with the IRS outside of bankruptcy proceedings. Our Winston-Salem lawyers at Hartsoe & Associates can help with both.

  • Tony will always be the person/firm on which we rely.

    “Tony has represented me and members of my family for over 10 years and we have always been so grateful for his work. His concern for the client become obvious as does his wealth of experience which allows him to guide you effectively. He will tell you what you need to hear, not just what you want to hear. When my sister and I attempted to deal with my dad's bank, after his death, we were being simply taken advantage of! Despite our appears and offers to resolve the matter, we could not bring the matter to resolution. Tony took the matter and it was handled, to our satisfaction, quickly and without any negative impact to us. From traffic violations to tax and estate planning, Tony will always be the person/firm on which we rely.”

  • I cannot express in words how confident you will feel by having Tara in charge of your case

    “Tara Kay Johnson did an awesome job! If you're like me, you didn't think something like this would happen to you, but there you are at that moment in your life with a lot of questions and very few answers... doubt and emotion starts to take over, but fear not. As with many folks who have to go through this unfortunate event in your life, you want the strongest and most well-respected representation you can find. That is exactly what I received. Tara will listen to your concerns and stand up for you, while at the same time she will also recommend the absolute best course of action. I cannot express in words how confident you will feel by having Tara in charge of your case. During my case, there was not a single moment where I felt vulnerable or a moment where I wondered what the outcome would be. Tara and her very well-educated staff were with me every step of the way. Communication and support was excellent throughout the entire process. The bottom line is: If you or someone you know is heading down the tough road to divorce, then you need the BEST guide you can find, and that is Tara Kay Johnson.”
