New Contracts for Private Collection Agencies
As we covered in our November 2011 issue, we contract with private collection agencies to collect delinquent California personal income tax debts that are not economical for our collectors to pursue. In addition to other legal provisions governing this collection program, we are allowed to contract with at least one private collection agency—or more. On May 1, 2012, we awarded contracts to Continental Services Group, Inc, dba ConServe, and Premiere Credit of North America, LLC. These agencies collect tax debts from individuals inside California.
