IRS Awards Contracts to Three Collection Agencies

The IRS has awarded contracts to three collections agencies. Starting September 23, 2021, if you owe an IRS tax debt, you may be contacted by one of these three agencies. Do not ignore any communication from these agencies; they are attempting to collect a debt from the IRS and they have the right to contact you.

The IRS will always notify a taxpayer before transferring their account to a private collection agency (PCA). More information can be found here.

It is in your best interest to settle your IRS debt. If you cannot pay your tax debt in full you can request a payment plan, make an offer in compromise (a way to settle your tax debt for less than the full amount), or request a temporary delay in collection. Do not avoid your tax debt, make an effort to resolve the debt to avoid additional penalties and interest.

You do not need to hire a lawyer to help with your IRS debt; you can do it on your own and not pay a crazy fee to a lawyer.
