Wyoming Approves Tax Collection Fees

Senate Bill 50 was signed into law amending Wyo. Stat. §39-15-107 to allow collection agencies to charge delinquent taxpayers additional fees for their collection efforts. They may now charge the taxpayer up to 20 percent of the value of the tax. This fee will be charged on top of the tax, interest, and other penalties. Those debt collection fees were previously paid for with funds from the Department of Revenue prior to the passage of this new law.
