Owe Tax ? No passport For You!

Passport restriction tied to delinquent taxes

If you owe too much in unpaid child support you can lose your passport.That is not new but Senate Bill 1813 is.

It was introduced by Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and was morphed from a proposal coming from Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) that as it is now would hold you hostage in the USA if you are delinquent for more than $50,000 in back taxes. You would be restricted from getting a passport or could have your current one restricted.

On March 14, 2012 it was passed by the senate and was tied into a set of highway safety and construction related programs.
The government is creative at finding ways to fund pothole fixing etc.

It has to pass Congress

But still, it has legs and the idea seems politically popular enough.


If the IRS files a lien for more than $50,000.00  you could lose your passport (it would be revoked.)
One issue that could be very problematic is that if the IRS files a lien thinking that you owe back taxes and your passport gets revoked despite the possible result that you didn’t owe any taxes and they were mistaken.

So, you have paid the price of losing your passport and suffered from a travel restriction although you were later found innocent.  If this were the case with me I would be quite displeased to say the least.

That Shit Ain’t Right

Some would say ” That shit ain’t right”, and I’d tend to agree if it were happening unfairly to me. We’ll have to see where this all goes but for now cross your fingers that it doesn’t affect you unfairly.

Share and Enjoy
