Owing Money to the Federal Government or the State of Iowa

You may owe the state or federal government money for a variety of reasons, including for tax debt. The federal government and the State of Iowa can be debt collectors in certain circumstances, but they are not your typical debt collectors. They have options available to them to collect that are not available to all debt collectors. The specific circumstances of how a debt can be collected will depend on who you owe the debt to and what the debt is for.
