YES, THE GOVERNMENT CAN DENY YOUR PASSPORT APPLICATION IF YOU OWE MORE THAN $51,000 BACK TAXES
I guess there has been some criticism of the law that allows the State Department to deny your passport application if you have an unpaid federal tax liability of more than $51,000. I could be wrong, but I don’t think it’s a violation of anyone’s constitutional rights. I don’t think you have a constitutional right to a passport. It seems to me that Congress can put limitations on who gets a passport, and that’s what happened here. IF you think it’s objectionable, persuade Congress to change the law.
