A lot of questions will arise. I have one, how far back are these uncollectable accounts going to go? Are they contractors working for the agency? Are they a collection agency that has purchased the accounts from IRS. How much do they know about tax law? If the IRS could not collect them why do they think a collection agency can.  Know your rights 10 years or older they cannot collect. This is another reason every tax payer should have their own personal tax professional. Know your fair debt collection rights. Everyone knows the names of these collection agencies. No one knows who is on the other end of the line and if they are, where and who they, say they are. 


IR-2017-74 April 4, 2017


WASHINGTON — Starting this month, the Internal Revenue Service will begin sending letters to a relatively small group of taxpayers whose overdue federal tax accounts are being assigned to one of four private-sector collection agencies.


The new program, authorized under a federal law enacted by Congress in December 2015, enables these designated contractors to collect, on the government’s behalf, unpaid tax debts. Usually, these are unpaid individual tax obligations that are not currently being worked by IRS collection employees and often were assessed by the tax agency several years ago.


The IRS will always notify a taxpayer before transferring their account to a private collection agency (PCA). First, the IRS will send a letter to the taxpayer and their tax representative informing them that their account is being assigned to a PCA and giving the name and contact information for the PCA. This mailing will include a copy of Publication 4518, What You Can Expect When the IRS Assigns Your Account to a Private Collection Agency.

Our new Special Report: 2017 Health Care Reform: CBO Projects Fiscal and Coverage Impacts of American Health Care Act takes a closer look at the potential tax changes resulting from the AHCA and the repeal of the ACA, and provides detailed analysis of the CBO report and projections.
