Beware - The IRS is Starting to Use Private Debt Collectors Again
April 20, 2017
According to this NY Times article, the Internal Revenue Service will be starting to use private debt collectors to help collect tax debt. It will be sending accounts worth $50,000 or less to the debt collectors. Some of the private companies have shady pasts.
What does this mean for you if your debt is sent to a private debt collector? For one, the private collectors will call you at home, which the IRS almost never does. They will be more aggressive than the IRS. They might not be as willing to work toward a settlement.
Contact the law firm if you need help with a tax debt.
