The Senate has unanimously approved a provision to a highway transportation bill that would revoke the passports of people with seriously delinquent tax debts.
The provision, which was part of a larger amendment by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., to the Senate version of a surface transportation bill, was approved by unanimous consent last Tuesday.The amendment would allow the State Department to deny, revoke or limit a passport for any individual whom the Internal Revenue Service has certified as having a “seriously delinquent tax debt” in excess of $50,000. The amount would be adjusted for inflation in future years.
