The IRS Private Debt Collection Program: What You Need To Know

The Internal Revenue Service has initiated a Private Debt Collection program.  They have selected four contractors to implement this program.

What this means to you – if you have an outstanding debt with the IRS and you are selected as part of this program, the IRS WILL ALWAYS notify you regarding the transfer of your account to a private collection agency.

The four groups selected for this program are:

  • CBE Group of Cedar Falls, Iowa,
    P.O. Box 2217
    Waterloo, IA 50704
  • Conserve of Fairport, NY
    P.O. Box 307
    Fairport, NY 14450-0307
  • Performant of Livermore, CA
    P.O. Box 9045
    Pleasanton CA 94566-9045
  • Pioneer of Horseheads, NY
    PO Box 500
    Horseheads, NY 14845

These four are the ONLY firms authorized to represent the IRS.  Also, the Internal Revenue Service will never assign your account to more than one of these firms.
