The IRS has hired a Debt Collector that is being sued by the Government

If you’re behind on you’re taxes, you could get a phone call from an unexpected place this year. For-profit debt collectors have been hired by the IRS to chase down long-overdue taxes that the government agency lacks the resources to work on. Four companies were selected for the new contracts, including one whose parent company is currently being sued by the US government over its student loan debt collection practices.
