Can the IRS revoke my passport?

There are many financial penalties to not paying one's taxes in a timely manner, but many Texas residents may not know that the Internal Revenue Service can notify the State Department when someone owes a seriously delinquent tax debt. This means that the State Department can deny someone's application for a passport and can even revoke an existing passport.

What does a legitimate letter from the IRS look like?

For the Internal Revenue Service, this is the beginning of correspondence season. It is most likely sending out notices, bills and changes in reporting notices to taxpayers. When an Austin resident receives a letter from the IRS, he or she is likely to get overwhelmed by it and not question the validity of the notice. This is what scammers are counting on and taking advantage of.

Eliminate tax debt with an Offer in Compromise

Sometimes, things happen that make it impossible for you to pay a tax bill. Your savings might be stolen by someone who has infiltrated your bank account, you might lose a job or you could simply not earn enough to save what you need for taxes. Perhaps the money your employer put back was not enough, or you can't pay your tax liability for other issues.
