ACA Letter to IRS Commissioner Koskinen Concerning Private-Sector Debt Collection
ACA believes that U.S. citizens living overseas should not be subject to the recent private-sector debt collection program, as the logistics of dealing with a collection agency based in the U.S. would create an undue burden for Americans living overseas.
