BBB Warning: IRS May Call You After All; Some Taxpayer Debts Assigned to Private Collection Agencies
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has changed the way it deals with overdue taxes, and that means third party collection agencies may now call you on the phone.
Like the IRS, Better Business Bureau (BBB) is concerned this change might lead to scammers trying new ways to trick people. Here is what you need to know about this program that started in April 2017.
