MORE CRITICISM OF THE LAW ALLOWING THE STATE DEPARTMENT TO DENY YOUR PASSPORT APPLICATION IF YOU OWE MORE THAN $51,000 IN BACK TAXES
This time the commentator suggests that limiting the ability of U. S. citizens to travel abroad is a liberty interest that implicates due process. I agree that you should be afforded due process before your passport application is denied, but it doesn’t sound to me like that’s an issue with seriously delinquent tax debts. If you’re in that kind of hock to the IRS, you have probably had plenty of opportunity to work it out.
