Bill in Congress could suspend your passport if you own taxes to the IRS

There is a new bill in Congress that is expected to pass that would allow the government to suspend your travel outside the country if you own taxes to the IRS.

Senate Bill 1813 (Highway trust fund), which was passed by the Senate last week and is now pending in the House of Representatives contains a provision that would allow the IRS to order the State Department to refuse to grant, refuse to renew, revoke or restrict the passport of any US citizen which the IRS certifies owes the IRS $50,000 or more in unpaid taxes. There is no requirement that the tax payer be guilty of or even charged with tax evasion, fraud, or any criminal offense - only that the citizen is alleged to owe the IRS back taxes of $50,000 or more.



With Capital Control measures expected to be implemented in 2013, which would force Americans to keep their money from going offshore, the laws being legislated are now affecting the average citizen far more than any action against terrorists, or in support of the 'War on Terror'.

Whether it was fascist Germany, Socialist Russia or communist China, it is state's desire to maintain or retain power via the control of its very own citizens. . . even in the US.

Whether through the war on terrorism, environmental protectionism or protecting/promoting minority rights, the powers to be will focus on what is best for 'the state' and not the individual . . . which results in embracing the rule of man . . . and not the rule of law (as expressed by the US Constitution).

It is what it is: a civil war battling for the minds, hearts and souls that had been formulated upon our republic's founding . . . and what may be fundamentally transformed upon our republic's future journey.

Taxes for now. I figure next will be college loans.

I owe taxes. 90% of my work has to be done overseas. In order to PAY my taxes, I NEED to be able to travel to work. I wonder if there is any provision for that. Along the lines of allowing DUI drivers to drive to and from work.

There is no requirement that the tax payer be guilty of or even charged with tax evasion, fraud, or any criminal offense.

Based on my understanding, if I have an unpaid tax below $50,000 I can still have my passport? Does this also apply to unpaid tax on heavy vehicle registration?

Well, you can kind of see where they are coming from with that. 50,000 is enough money to make people want to run away from the financial strain. Business people who manage the costs of their phone bill, storage, etc will have less to worry about.
