IRS Tax Collections


The Internal Revenue Service awarded contracts On March 6, 2006 to three firms to participate in the first phase of its private debt collection initiative.

The firms are:

  • The CBE Group Inc., Waterloo, Iowa.
  • Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson, LLP, Austin, Texas.
  • Pioneer Credit Recovery, Inc., Arcade, N.Y.


Private firms will not be authorized to take enforcement actions such as liens, levies or seizures.  In addition, private firms will not be authorized to work on technical issues such as offers in compromise, bankruptcies, hardship issues or litigation.  Rather, the IRS will assign to the private firms cases in which the taxpayer has not disputed the liability. The private firms will contact taxpayers to make payment arrangements.

  • The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act applies to contractorís activity including provisions specifically applicable to IRS employees.
  • Contractors are not authorized to communicate with third parties other than the taxpayerís representative.
  • Contractors are prohibited from soliciting direct receipt of funds from taxpayers.
  • Contractors shall not base compensation on dollars collected. IRS compliance reviews will include review of employee compensation methodologies.

    The IRS can garnish Social Security payments for past due taxes. Usually, the maximum is 15%, but there are exceptions. You should speak with a tax attorney about this.
