After the grace period for resolving seriously delinquent tax debt ended in July 15, 2020, IRS has continued to certify federal tax defaulters for possible passport revocation, denial, or imposing limitations on current passports.
While you may have an idea as to what this means based on the previous section, it is vitally important to understand what it actually means. Passport revocation is a tool created for the IRS that gives them the power to revoke or deny the passport of any taxpayer with delinquent tax debt. The legislation involved dictates that the debt must be defined as “seriously delinquent”.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has made it clear: it will revoke U.S. passports for Americans who owe more than $52,000 in overdue taxes.
