Effective in January of 2018, the IRS published procedures to begin enforcement of Internal Revenue Code (IRC) section 7345, which requires the State Department to deny the application for, or revoke the passport of, any individual whom the IRS certifies as having a “seriously delinquent tax debt.” This means that you are at risk of losing your ability to travel outside of the United States if you owe more than $51,000 in back taxes that have not been resolved.
If your U.S. passport application or renewal is denied or your U.S. passport is revoked, the State Department will notify you in writing.
If you need your U.S. passport to keep your job or to travel, once your seriously delinquent tax debt is certified, you must fully pay the balance, or make an alternative payment arrangement with the IRS in order to have your certification reversed.
