KEEP UP TO DATE WITH THE LATEST NEWS gleaner IRS to use private debt collectors amid phone scam Letter campaign would precede phone contact STEPHEN OHLEMACHER ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON The IRS is resuming the use of private debt collectors amid a wave of telephone scams in which fake government agents tell innocent taxpayers to pay up or face jail, the tax agency announced Tuesday. The IRS stopped using private debt collectors in 2009 after the agency determined that IRS employees could better do the work.

But Congress passed a law in 2015 requiring the IRS to restart the program. The IRS says it will soon start turning over the accounts of 100 taxpayers a week to four private debt collectors. The program will grow to 1,000 accounts a week for each firm by the end of summer. The firms can keep up to 25 percent of what they collect. To combat fraud, the IRS says it is sending letters to taxpayers alerting them that their accounts are being turned over to private debt collectors.

The private companies will then send letters to the taxpayers before calling them. "The IRS remains extremely concerned about the many con artists out there who masquerade as IRS employees or contractors," said Mary Beth Murphy, who heads the small business and selfemployed division at the IRS. "We urge everyone to No Trump GREGORY KORTE USA TODAY WASHINGTON Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice said Tuesday that she did not seek to "unmask" the names of Trump associates for political purposes, but also described the process of asking for the intelligence community to reveal the names of U.S. citizens as a "longstanding, established "The allegation is that somehow Obama administration officials utilized intelligence for political purposes. That is absolutely false," she said on MSNBC.

Henderson, KY. AS: Across from Dairy Queen 270.869.8853 Service Building Visitors 7 ANDREW The Internal Revenue Service says it is once again using private debt collectors to go after tax delinquents. The resumption of the program comes amid a wave of telephone scams in which fake IRS agents try to con innocent taxpayers out of their money. be on the lookout for scammers who might use this program as a cover to swindle taxpayers," she said. Since the fall of 2013, more than 1.9 million people have received unsolicited telephone calls from fake government agents, according to the inspector general for tax administration.

The callers demand money, saying the victim owes unpaid taxes. To date, over 10,300 victims have paid more than $55 million to the criminals. The IRS has said the scam is so widespread that multiple criminal organizations are taking part. In October, the Justice Department announced charges against 61 defendants in the United States and abroad in connection with call center operations based in India. Murphy offered several tips to detect con artists.

"No one will hear from a private collection firm unless they have unpaid tax debts going back several years and they've already heard from IRS multiple times about this debt," she said. "We don't collect taxes on iTunes cards or gift cards, and we don't do it with aggressive, threatening phone calls." "We will never use a phone call to threaten to bring in the police or have someone arrested," Murphy added. Even though private firms will 1 be contacting taxpayers, all payments should be made to the U.S. Treasury, Murphy said. The old private collection program was relatively small, collecting a little more than $80 million in three years.

But it sparked a political and ideological debate over the value of public employees and government privatization. The union representing IRS workers and the National Taxpayer Advo- cate, an independent ombudsman within the IRS, opposed the program. They were joined by some Democrats in Congress. Other powerful lawmakers from both political parties supported it. "Every time this has been tried before, it has failed," said Tony Reardon, national president of the National Treasury Employees Union.

"But once again Congress has forced this policy on the IRS, and we expect the results to be the same: collection agents getting paid to harass taxpayers, many of whom need assistance, not threats." The new program could grow larger, depending on its success. The IRS will start by assigning cases in which the debt is less than $50,000. As it progresses, the agency will assign larger, more complicated cases to the private collectors, said Bill Banowsky, who will head the program for the IRS. in 'unmasking' of associates, Rice says CAROLYN Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice says the Obama administration did not use intelligence about President Donald Trump's associates for political purposes. should focus on his claims as yet unsubstantiated that President Barack Obama ordered surveillance on Trump Tower.

"There were occasions when I would receive areport in which a U.S. person was referred to, name not provided," Rice said. If she believed the name of that person was important to understand the significance of the intelligence, she would ask her intelligence briefers for more information, she said.
