What to Expect

If you have an account that has moved to Collection, the IRS will write you to tell you ConServe has your account. Next ConServe will write you about your account. It is important that you save these letters.

The contact letter (CP40) from the IRS will state that overdue taxes have been assigned to ConServe. It provides steps on “What Happens Next” and your “Rights as a Taxpayer”. ConServe’s initial contact letter will then follow the IRS’s letter validating the assignment to ConServe and provide additional information about your account including payment methods to the IRS. Both letters will contain a unique identifier used to authenticate the taxpayer and ConServe.

How to Avoid Scams

The IRS has selected four private collections agencies, including ConServe, to work on its behalf and assist taxpayer’s with overdue taxes. ConServe will contact taxpayers by mail and by phone. ConServe will not reach out to taxpayers via email, text messages or through social media platforms. If you have been contacted by anyone posing as a debt collector that does not follow a multi-question authentication, it is a scam.
