Sounds like the IRS's intent was to punish these business owners by shutting them down and giving their inventory and personal possessions away at firesale prices when there was no compelling need to do so. They should have at least had their day in court to face their accusers and defend themselves against the charges. Maybe they owed back taxes, but they should have been able to reach a settlement and payment schedule if they did. The government gets more money and the business gets to stay a going concern.

The Internal Revenue Service is about to start using four private debt-collection companies to chase down overdue payments from hundreds of thousands of people who owe money to the federal government, a job it has handled in house for years.

Unlike I.R.S. agents, who are not usually allowed to call delinquent taxpayers by telephone, the outside debt-collection agencies will have free rein to do so. Consumer watchdogs are fearful that some of the nation’s most vulnerable taxpayers will be harassed and that criminals will take advantage of the system by phoning people and impersonating I.R.S. collectors.

Additionally, one of the four companies that the I.R.S. has hired, Pioneer Credit Recovery, a subsidiary of Navient, was effectively fired two years ago by the Education Department from its contract to collect delinquent debt for misleading borrowers about their loans at what the department called “unacceptably high rates.”
