If you owe the IRS money, be prepared for some changes.

The IRS will now use private debt collectors for overdue federal debt, which might confuse some taxpayers.

The program was authorized by Congress late last year and it basically allows private collection agencies to collect outstanding tax payments on behalf of the IRS.

As Consumerist points out, this raises all sorts of questions:

Will taxpayers disregard these calls because they think they’re a scam?

For their part, the IRS acknowledged these concerns on a web page explaining the new program.
