Office of the Taxpayer Advocate

The North Carolina Department of Revenue is committed to enforcing our State's tax laws in a fair, impartial and consistent manner. The Office of the Taxpayer Advocate was established at the executive level to help ensure the Department meets this goal. The mission of the Taxpayer Advocate’s Office is to instill confidence and integrity in the administration of North Carolina’s tax laws by ensuring taxpayers are afforded their rights as stated in the Taxpayer's Bill of Rights. When a problem arises between a taxpayer and the Department of Revenue that cannot be resolved through normal administrative channels, the Office of the Taxpayer Advocate will work with the appropriate division within the Department to seek resolution of the problem and ensure that it is handled in a professional manner.
