DELINQUENT COLLECTION PROCEDURES
• We send only one notice by mail.
• We visit the residence of the delinquent taxpayer or business.

If the one notice we send is not paid or we’re not receiving partial payments, we send a Tax Representative to the residence. We train our Tax Representatives to be professional. The taxpayers who don’t pay by the mail, pay after our representative arrives.

We send Notice and Demands to employers if we don’t receive a payment within a reasonable time. Sometimes, we must file a complaint with the District Justice. We will appear at a hearing with the taxpayer.
