TAX COLLECTORS

In Uncategorized on 09/30/2016 at 17:05

I note the IRS announcement earlier this week that, due to lack of resources, their so-far-unimpeached IRS boss John (”Kosy”) Koskinen has contracted out collection of “older, overdue tax accounts” among others.

The collectors must follow the Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and be courteous and respect taxpayer rights, unlike the strip-miners and bottom-fishers of distressed debt who try strong-arm tactics to collect their own debts.

IRS is aware that, having trumpeted to the skies warnings of phony scammer phonecalls pretending to be from the IRS, they will have a lot of ‘splainin’ to do.

The new tax collectors, I fear, will be about as popular as their predecessors, who appear in far more exalted documents than IRS press releases. And markedly less effective.
