Democrats Ask FTC To Review IRS Private Debt Collection Scripts

Four Democratic senators are asking the Federal Trade Commission for a review and briefing of the call scripts used by private debt collection companies in order to ensure taxpayer rights are protected.  Some senators are concerned that the third party collection companies are violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act by violating the privacy protections of taxpayers, implying threats in their call scripts, and not appropriately responding to taxpayer requests to cease and desist.  The democrats are requesting this to be completed by no later than September 1, 2017.
