Avoid getting stuck without a passport! The IRS has the power to impact your passport status.
Many taxpayers don’t realize the IRS is capable of affecting your passport status, and possibly leaving you stuck somewhere!
Congress passed the FAST Act in 2015, which instructed the IRS to identify delinquent taxpayers and certify them to the US State Department.
The State Department is then required to deny the individual’s passport application, or remove or limit an existing one.
It is worth noting that the IRS is typically doing this to “seriously delinquent taxpayers”, so hopefully, you don’t fall into that category.
Avoid becoming a “seriously delinquent taxpayer” and contact an experienced tax resolution professional!
