Under a new law that is expected to take effect in January of next year, the State Department is going to now be able to block Americans with delinquent tax debt from obtaining any new passports. They will also be allowed to rescind existing passports of people who fall into this category. A list is expected to be compiled of those who owe the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) at least $50,000 in unpaid federal taxes, which includes any penalties and interest, and it would also be adjusted for inflation.
The rule has already been passed in similar versions by the House of Representatives and the Senate. This plan happens to be tucked-away within a highway-funding bill, H.R. 22, that is now scheduled before a conference committee and they are expected to pass it in just a few weeks. It is alleged that the new rule is not going to apply to a taxpayer who is already in the process of resolving any tax debt with the IRS. This includes anyone who already has a payment installment plan established, as well as those individuals who choose to challenge and are engaged in contesting their debts in court.

Americans: Pay Your Taxes--Or Lose Your Passport
Congress is poised to enact a law denying or revoking passports for U.S. citizens who haven’t paid their taxes.
I'm interested, do tell the nations you can enter without a passport?

Incorrect. I can travel to many foreign countries without a passport. The reason virtually all Americans have one for international travel is because the US requires one to return to the US. If someone is leaving the US because they're fed up with the US' bull crap, I doubt they'll be too concerned about reentering.
