Drug Possession Leads to Charges and Taxes

In Business, Criminal by GWAO

In North Carolina, if you are charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance, you will face felony criminal charges, as well as potential tax consequences.

Although controlled substances are illegal, in North Carolina, the legislature will still allow the Department of Revenue to tax you on the alleged “value” of the illegal drugs, even if you are not convicted.

There are many hidden collateral consequences if you are charged with a crime in North Carolina.  The attorneys at Garrett, Walker and Aycoth can help you avoid these consequences and educate you on their potential impact.
