Can I lose my passport if I don't pay tax debt?

As per a new federal law, you can lose your passport if you owe more than $50,000 in federal tax debt. Moreover, the State Department may deny to issue you a passport (it’ll hold your application for 90 days) unless you repay your taxes or sort out a repayment plan with the IRS.

Phill Bradford is right, but what he didn't mention is that, under the FAST Act (Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act), if a person owes more than $50,000, including interest and penalties, then the IRS will notify him/her it in writing regarding the tax debt to the State Department.

The new application for the passport will be on hold for 90 days for resolving the issue.

To get out of it, the person should prove that the tax debt is fully satisfied by making the full payment or entering into a satisfactory payment plan.
