You May Be Denied Your US passport renewal (or your Passport can be Revoked)l if You Owe Taxes

At least 362,000 Americans with overdue tax debts will be denied new or renewed passports if they don’t settle these debts, the Internal Revenue Service says.
Recently IRS officials have provided new details on the enforcement of a law Congress passed in late 2015. It requires the IRS and State Department to deny passports or revoke them for taxpayers who have more than $51,000 of overdue tax debt. Enforcement began in February.  Overdue tax debt includes accrued  penalties and interest which can result after many years a small amount growing quite large.
