State to Help Taxpayers with Individual Income Debt Payment Program

Written by Featured Organization on 20 January 2012.

RALEIGH – Gov. Bev Perdue announced today that the North Carolina Department of Revenue is launching the Individual Income Tax Debt Payment Program to help individuals catch up on unpaid taxes. This time-limited program will help individuals resolve unpaid taxes and get back on their feet financially by waiving certain penalties and fees and offering payment plan options. Participating taxpayers can avoid forced collections such as garnishments, liens, and levies.

 “This is exactly the type of program we need to help our fellow North Carolinians down the path to economic recovery,” said Gov. Bev Perdue.  “We are making it easier for our citizens to work with state government.”

The program provides a favorable and easy payment opportunity for taxpayers who have accrued debt, often because of a weakened economy. Eligible taxpayers could save as much as 35 to 40 percent by participating in the program. 

The debt payment program ends April 30, 2012.

Any taxpayer who has properly filed their tax returns with NCDOR and has received a notice for unpaid taxes prior to January 1, 2012, may participate.  A taxpayer who has not filed a return, does not currently have an outstanding tax liability or is the subject of an ongoing criminal investigation or prosecution is not eligible.

In exchange for a taxpayer paying the balance of tax and interest owed by April 30th, NCDOR will waive certain, unpaid civil penalties and fees.

“We are excited to offer this payment program to our citizens,” said Secretary of Revenue David Hoyle.  “It will help them resolve their tax liabilities easily and have a fresh start in 2012.”

Anyone interested in participating should contact the NCDOR local service center nearest them or call 1-877-252-4983. For detailed information about the program, please visit the North Carolina Department of Revenue website.
