    Private Companies Collecting Taxes

    In April 2017, the IRS began using private debt collection companies to collect inactive tax debts.  Taxpayers should be extremely careful to verify the legitimacy of the correspondence from any debt collection company by calling the IRS if they are contacted by such a company.  This is especially true in light of the high volume of tax collection scams that have been recently occurring.

    The four private debt collection companies currently being used by the IRS include: CBE Group, 1309 Technology Parkway, Cedar Falls, IA 50613; Conserve, 200 CrossKeys Office Park, Fairport, NY 14450; Performant, 333 N Canyons Parkway, Livermore, CA 94551; Pioneer, 325 Daniel Zenker Drive, Horseheads, NY 14845.
