How Does Performant Recovery & The IRS Communicate
Once you have received the CP40 notification, Performant Recovery will send you a letter confirming the assignment of your unpaid tax liability. The PCa will not contact you by phone to send you a confirmation, but by postal mail. Once the letter has been sent, you can call the PCA to help with the termination of your account, explain your payment options and help you choose the best one for you. When you receive this call, the IRS Private Collection Agency (PCA) will send you a letter from the U.S. Tax Office (IRS) office in Washington, D.C. This number is used by the PCA to verify your identity and can be used to confirm the identity of the PCA. Keep the letter in a safe place for future reference and keep it in the same place as the email. Private debt collectors cannot take foreclosure action to recover your debt. However, the IRS has the power to collect federal tax liabilities and levies on overdue accounts. If you do not wish to work with a private debt collection agency to pay taxes due, you can make an application to the PCA by writing to it. Nor are accounts of the deceased assigned to private debt collection agencies. If you need help relieving your tax debt contact us.
