Seizure of Passport

Seizure of Passport

The State Department generally will not issue a passport to you after receiving delinquent debt certification from the IRS. Not only that, they can revoke your current passport. If your tax debt is seriously delinquent, it gets reported to the State Department and then they act. This usually occurs when an individual has substantial unpaid federal debt, a notice of federal tax lien has been issued, an IRS Levy has been issued and all other remedies have been exhausted. When this happens, you’re not going anywhere without making things right with the IRS.

TAX PROBLEM: If you fail to respond to IRS notices to satisfy a significantly delinquent debt, they will revoke your current passport or prevent you from getting one. If you have seriously delinquent tax, the IRS is authorized to certify that debt to the State Department for action. The State Department generally will not issue a passport to you after receiving that certification from the IRS. According to the IRS, seriously delinquent tax debt is an individual's unpaid, legally enforceable federal tax debt totaling more than $51,000 (including interest and penalties). Before denying a passport, the State Department will hold your application for 90 days to allow you to resolve any erroneous certification issues, make full payment of the tax debt or enter into a satisfactory payment arrangement with the IRS. Before things get to this stage, you need Larry Heinkel – an experienced, highly qualified tax attorney – to help you get back on track with your taxes – and your travels.

CONSEQUENCE: If you continue to ignore your tax problem, your travel privileges will be denied.
If your U.S. passport application is denied or your U.S. passport is revoked, the State Department will notify you in writing. If you need your U.S. passport to travel for business, or you are a business consultant doing business with overseas businesses, imagine how difficult it would be telling your employer or explaining to your client you are unable to leave the U.S. because your passport was revoked due to a large unpaid tax debt. You might get fired from your job. If you're a business owner, you're likely to lose a client. Your employer nor a client wants the IRS in their business because you failed to pay your taxes.

Get this, it's real. It's happening now. Whatever your delinquent tax debt is, once it’s on the IRS’ radar, it will be certified and your ability to use your passport will be revoked through the State Department. You must pay the balance in full, or make an alternative payment arrangement to have that passport seizure certification reversed.

SOLUTION: Let the specialists at Tax Problem Solver help negotiate a Game Plan that’s right for you.
There are solutions to your tax problems that allow you to avoid having your passport revoked. They include repayment plans (installment agreements) and settlements (Offers in Compromise), and both can stop or prevent passport seizure. The State Department will only hold your application for 90 days to allow you to resolve your delinquent tax debt in some fashion. That’s why Tax Problem Solver should represent you through this very critical 90-day period and through every step of the process, acting as a go-between with you and the IRS to achieve the best possible plan for you to avoid having your passport seized. Once you’ve resolved your tax problem with them, the IRS will reverse the certification within 30 days of resolution of the issue and then provide notification to the State Department, in order to restore your ability to utilize a passport.
