If tRump has a pardon, can the government collect IRS debts?

If TRump is pardoned by Pence having been made president after tRump resigns before Biden takes office, can the IRS collect back taxes and penalties. He probably can not be convicted of a federal crime but if he owes back taxes or penalties can the federal government collect them?

1. Sure. If he owes back taxes the IRS can collect them because that's not a criminal penalty.

2. Yes.

A pardon would prevent a prosecution for tax evasion but it would not eliminate the debt.

3. Yes

Pardons are only for criminal penalties and not civil or for taxes owed
