SCHUMER ANNOUNCES TWO UPSTATE NY COMPANIES – PIONEER IN WYOMING AND CHEMUNG COUNTIES, AND CONSERVE IN MONROE COUNTY – HAVE BEEN AWARDED CRITICAL CONTRACT THAT IS ESTIMATED TO CREATE 600 JOBS ACROSS UPSTATE NY
Pioneer & ConServe Have Been Selected By IRS As Private Contractors To Collect Delinquent Taxes – With New Contract, Both Companies Estimate Hiring Roughly 300 Workers Each
U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer today announced that two Upstate New York companies, Pioneer and ConServe, have been awarded federal contracts to serve as private contractors helping the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) collect unpaid taxes. Schumer said this is expected to bring a massive influx of 600 good-paying, middle-class jobs to Upstate New York.
“The creation of roughly 600 jobs middle-class jobs is great news for Wyoming, Chemung and Monroe Counties. This is a smart federal investment that will not only create new, good-paying jobs, but also help inject new life into the Upstate economy,” said Senator Schumer.
“We would not be in the position to grow jobs in western New York without the leadership and hard work from Chuck Schumer in the Senate as well as the quality work and track record of our dedicated New York-based employees,” said Pioneer CEO Jack Frazier.
Pioneer, which has three facilities in Upstate New York – two located in Wyoming County in the Towns of Arcade and Perry, and one located in Chemung County in the Town of Horseheads – estimates this will allow them to hire up to 300 new workers between these centers. ConServe, which is located in the Town of Fairport in Monroe County, also estimates they will be able to hire 300 new workers as a result of this contract.
According to the IRS, these private collection agencies will work on accounts where taxpayers owe money, but the IRS is no longer actively working their accounts. Several factors contribute to the IRS assigning these accounts to private collection agencies, including older, overdue tax accounts or lack of resources preventing the IRS from working the cases.
