Can IRS Revoke Your Passport?
In short-Yes, they can.
As of January of 2018, the IRS published procedures to begin enforcement of Internal Revenue Code (IRC) section 7345 that requires the State Department to deny the application for, or revoke the passport of, any individual whom the IRS certified as having a “seriously delinquent tax liability.” In other words, this means that an individual is at risk of losing their ability to travel outside of the United States if they owe more than $51,000 in unresolved back taxes.
How Would One Know If Their Passports Are Denied?
The State Department will notify an individual in writing if their passport application, renewal is denied or their U.S. passport is revoked.
What If Travel is Necessary For An Individual?
Individuals must pay their tax balances in full if they need their U.S. passport to keep their job or travel. In addition, they can make an alternative payment arrangement with the IRS to have your certification reversed once their seriously delinquent tax liability is certified.
