Tax Advisor Barry G. Fowler, EA, Reports on New 2016 Restrictions for Seriously Delinquent Taxpayers
Barry G. Fowler, EA, leading expert in tax resolution issues and CEO of Taxation Solutions, warns taxpayers who owe $50,000 or more in back taxes that their international travel days may come to a halt in January when Congress is set to enact a law enabling them to revoke or rescind passports.
Houston, TX – December 10, 2015 – Barry G. Fowler, CEO of Taxation Solutions, posted a new blog on the company website entitled “Pay or Stay. IRS Set to Revoke Passports for Non-Taxpayers.” Coming home is out of the question for Americans abroad and getting out of the U.S. is out of the question for those living here who are delinquent taxpayers, as Barry Fowler points out in his recent blog.
Fowler writes, “If you’ve been thinking about planning a European vacation in 2016 or any travel outside of the U.S. or if you’re an American living abroad and owe the IRS taxes, you just might have to stay put. It looks like Congress is getting ready to put the kibosh on your plans.”
In an effort to calm any hasty reactions, Fowler says, “Don’t let claustrophobia set in too quickly. This law is intended to fence in those taxpayers who owe federal taxes in excess of $50,000.” He continues, adding, “If you know your name is going to be on the naughty list you might want to take care of that travel bug before the end of the year. Or better yet, contact an exceptional tax attorney.”
