Hi: I have a question on State tax. I live in Maryland and had my 2007 taxes go to Collections with a company called FAMS. My husband is still unemployed and no longer collecting unemployment insurance and I am the only one bringing in money. After we pay rent, utilities, car and so on, there is not much left. I wrote them a letter about a month ago telling them of my situation and broke down my paycheck and where it goes. Should I tell them I cannot pay now until my husband gets back to work? Can they take any other actions? Please help. Thanks
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
