Revenue Officers (ROs) enforce NC tax laws by working with taxpayers and their representatives to resolve tax issues. The most complex cases against businesses and individuals involving past due tax debts and non-filed returns are referred to field based ROs for resolution. ROs use legal processes such as seizure of taxpayer assets, including wages, bank accounts, real, and personal property. ROs work with local court systems to criminally prosecute taxpayers willfully avoiding filing and paying taxes. ROs make adjustments to taxpayers’ accounts when they determine amounts in question are not due. ROs often work with taxpayers and their representatives to evaluate claims of financial hardship and determine acceptable repayment terms through installment payment agreements or offers-in-compromise. ROs also assist the public, working with taxpayers and their representatives to determine tax liability and advise the public on state tax matters
