Taxes and Debt: Uniform Debt Collection Default Judgments Act

Numerous studies report that default judgments are entered in more than half of all debt collection actions. This panel discusses trends and policy development in the debt collection space and will address the forthcoming Uniform Debt Collection Default Judgments Act, a uniform act designed to provide consumer debtors with access to information needed to understand claims being asserted against them and identify available defenses; advise consumers of the adverse effects of failing to raise defenses or seek the voluntary settlement of claims; and make consumers aware of assistance that may be available from legal aid organizations.
