IRS Hires Private Debt Collection Services: We can help

The recent announcement that the IRS is turning over certain collection cases to third-party debt collectors has sent some shockwaves through our profession. The IRS has stated that only very old, inactive cases over a certain dollar limit will be referred to third-party collection agencies. The reality is that a taxpayer has the right to immediately request that their account be returned to the IRS for collection, and this may be beneficial for many taxpayers.

If you have been notified by the IRS that your account is being referred to a collection agency, or if you are contacted by a purported IRS-approved debt collection company about an outstanding tax liability, call our office; we can help.
