Sessions and Carver, Inc. grew out of a need that became obvious to our founders, John Sessions and Chris Carver,
former field auditors with the North Carolina Department of Revenue. While working face-to-face with the taxpayers of
the state they realized that there is a large majority who want to pay their tax correctly but lack the resources to fully
understand North Carolina’s tax laws and how the laws apply in their specific situations. John and Chris realized
that the system of educating and updating the taxpayers was not effective and the taxpayers needed more.
Sessions and Carver, Inc. was formed in July, 1999 to meet the needs
of the conscientious taxpayers of North Carolina and make the knowledge from 25 years of tax auditing experience available
to the taxpayers. The goal is to help taxpayers feel more confident about the sales and use tax returns that they submit
without overpaying taxes. Our clients are kept up-to-date through our constant monitoring of tax law changes by the North
Carolina legislature and administrative changes at the Department of Revenue.
Review for Overpayments
Many times, after a seminar, participants realize that they need help correcting the mistakes
that have been made in the past. Sessions and Carver, Inc. is available to provide the experience of a tax auditor in
such cases to help you pay the correct amount of tax without paying too much. In many cases we have been able to recover
tax which had been overpaid in the past and help taxpayers reduce their future tax bills significantly.
Some clients have requested
our assistance with audit resolution. Since auditors don’t know as much about your business as you do they sometimes
make presumptions that are not in your best interest. We are uniquely able to combine the knowledge of the tax auditor
with the perspective of the taxpayer. We have been able to help the auditor understand the unusual operations of a one-of-a-kind
business and at the same time help our clients understand the complexities of the tax law.
Nonprofit and Governmental
Sessions and Carver, Inc. specializes in requesting periodic claims
for refund for nonprofits and governmental entities. We can make this a painless process for you providing assurance
that your claim for refund has been filed correctly and that you are getting all of the money your organization is entitled
Through knowledge of the tax laws,
monitoring law changes, and effective distribution of information we have been able to provide a positive return on investment
for those who have taken advantage of the services that we offer and we have put millions of dollars back into the hands of
honest taxpayers statewide.
