IRS Using Private Debt Collectors

Posted by John Sweeney | May 08, 2017 | 0 Comments

The IRS is going to start using private debt collectors to pursue overdue taxes.

This is probably not a good development.  The collection efforts have a tendency to t disproportionately impact low-income, senior, and vulnerable taxpayers, 

The private collectors can be very invasive and use difficult tactics.  Some don't have a good reputation.  They can call your home.  In addition, it will open the door to scammers who are already having a field day with refunds and overdue taxes. 

The New York Times did an informative article on this and you can access it here.
