Why you received IRS Letter PCA

    1. You have an unpaid balance due that the IRS sent to a private debt collector.
    2. The IRS sent you a notice telling you which private debt collector your account has been assigned to.
    3. A private debt collector sent you this notice to inform you that they have your case and to provide you with information on how to pay your past-due taxes. This notice provides you with an authentication number so you can verify that the call/letter from the private collection agency is legitimate and so they can authenticate that they are speaking to the correct individual.
