If you have seriously delinquent tax debt, the law authorizes the IRS to certify that debt to the State Department for action. The State Department generally will not issue a passport to you after receiving Certification from the IRS and may deny a passport renewal application or revoke your current passport. Though the program was temporarily suspended in 2020 and 2021 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been reinstated and your passport could be in jeopardy if you have outstanding tax debts.
If you have been notified of Passport Certification, you will usually have 90 days to address the situation before the State Department takes action to impact your passport renewal or refuse your passport application. Golden Lion Tax Solutions can resolve the issue using IRS-sanctioned options to negotiate the release of any Certification notification that can impact your passport.
