NC General Statutes §105-241.23 authorizes the NC Department of Revenue to immediately assess and collect any tax the Department finds is in jeopardy.
In making a jeopardy collection, the Department may use any of the collection remedies in NC General Statutes §105-242 and is not required to wait any period of time before using these remedies.
A taxpayer may receive a jeopardy assessment if the taxpayer meets any of the following conditions:
- The taxpayer is or appears to be planning to quickly leave the state or to hide in order to defeat a tax liability.
- The taxpayer is or appears to be planning to quickly place property beyond the reach of the Department either by removing it from the state, concealing it, dissipating it, selling it or transferring it to other entities.
- The taxpayer’s financial solvency appears to be imperiled.
- The taxpayer’s financial solvency appears to be imperiled by continued business operations and refusal to pay collected trust taxes.
- Past legal actions have not resulted in compliance.
Review NC General Statutes §105-241.23 to determine what options are available to the taxpayer.
If the taxpayer has additional questions, they can contact the Collection Division Office that issued the jeopardy assessment.
