SAMPLE LETTER TERMINATING COLLECTION ACTIONS

 

Dear CLAIMANT NAME:

 

This is in further reference to your debt to the United States in the amount of {insert amount}, and your letter to us of {insert date}.

 

I have reviewed the issues raised in your letter, and the information concerning your financial situation which you have provided.  I have determined that collection action on your debt will be terminated indefinitely and that no further action will be taken by this office, unless we are notified that your circumstances have changed.

 

I have taken this action because it has been found that your financial circumstances are such that recovery would cause hardship.  In the event that we receive evidence of substantial income or assets which would support collection, we reserve the right to take further action to recover the money due.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Unit Chief for Policies,
