Delinquent Tax Debt Can lead to Passport Revocation. The fixing America’s Service Transportation (FAST) Act of 2015 which was signed into law on December 2015 requires the Internal Revenue Service to notify the State Department of taxpayers who are certified as owing a seriously delinquent tax debt.
Seriously certified tax debt is $51,000 indexed yearly for inflation which includes interest and penalties. This tax debt remains unpaid and legally enforceable and all administrative remedies have been lapsed and exhausted.
The IRS is required to notify you at your last known address of their intent to notify the State Department.
