Tax Law & IRS Matters

Taxes are one of life’s absolute certainties. If you buy anything, own anything, sell anything or earn anything, chances are you have (or should have) paid some form of tax to federal, state and/or local governments. Tax laws are very complex and often difficult to navigate safely without help.

  • Are you looking for ways to legitimately lower your personal or business income taxes?
  • Are you selling a business?
  • Are you selling investment real estate?
  • Are there any years for which you did not file an income tax return?
  • Have you received a notice from the IRS or N.C. Department of Revenue that you owe taxes?
  • Have you received notices of liens from the IRS or Department of Revenue?
  • Has the IRS or Department of Revenue attempted to levy, garnish or seize your bank accounts, wages or other property?
