State Licensing of Collection Agencies


Recommended Posts

Hey I have a question about the state licensing of collection agencies. What if they have not paid their license tax? Can I sue them to have their listing on my CR removed?

I'm in Alabama (it's not as bad as it seems ;) ) and so I went to the Dept. of Revenue's web page and found this:


Scroll down to "Collection Agency"...under "Additional Notes" there is a note that says "Must have a presence in this state".

However, page 78 of this document seems to imply that if an out of state collection agency has ANY agent (attorney on retainer, etc.) acting on their behalf in this state, then, by definition, the collection agency has a presence in this state and the tax is due...

Hmmm....I wonder how I could find out if the tax has been paid by the collection agency?
