Initiation: IRS Begins To Give Names To Immigration of Tax Violators with Large Balances!

Early this year, the IRS has began implementing the new procedures affecting individuals with “seriously delinquent tax debts.”     

Early this year, the IRS has began implementing the new procedures affecting individuals with “seriously delinquent tax debts.” 

In a training session that I've attended in Atlanta, GA in May for a week, Mr. Darren Guillot, Head of Field Operations for the IRS said that the IRS has started to give names to immigration to detain if they cross the border to the U.S.A.  He went on to say about 1,000 – 2,000+ names had been given so far, and that the process was being implemented.

The IRS strongly encouraged tax payers who are seriously behind on their taxes to pay what they owe or enter into a payment agreement wit the IRS to avoid putting their passports in jeopardy.

These new procedures implement provisions of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act, signed into law in December 2015.  The FAST Act required the IRS to notify the State Department of taxpayers the IRS has certified as owing a seriously delinquent tax debt, it also requires the State Department to deny their passport application or deny renewal of their passport. In some cases, the State Department may revoke their passport.

Tax payers affected by this law are those with a seriously delinquent tax debt who owes the IRS more than $51,000 in back taxes, penalties and interest for which the IRS has filed a Notice of Federal Tax Lien and the period to challenge it has expired or the IRS has issued a levy.

Our main goal is to take away the anxiety and pain of filing and paying US taxes and help prevent putting one’s passport in jeopardy.
