Collection Agencies to Hassle Taxpayers
The Internal Revenue Service awarded contracts on March 9, 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.
The Linebarger firm has been collecting money for the government and prides itself in tenacity. Any taxpayer contact by these collection agents should reveal nothing and hang up the telephone.
