If you owe taxes to IRS, you cannot leave the country: Fox Biz (Dr.Paul right again)Submitted by J-White on Tue, 04/17/2012 - 23:42
Remember that line from Dr. Paul during a debate when he said that a fence can be used to keep us in, in addition to keeping illegals out.
Many people did not understand that comment then.
According to Fox Biz there is a Senate bill which allows the Govt to stop you from leaving the country if you owe taxes.
The provision is part of Senate Bill 1813, which was introduced by Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) in November and passed by the Senate on March 14 “to reauthorize Federal-aid highway and highway safety construction programs, and for other purposes.”
Those “other purposes” have come to include a little-known amendment recently introduced by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid that would allow the State Department to revoke, deny or limit passports for anyone the Internal Revenue Service certifies as having “a seriously delinquent tax debt in an amount in excess of $50,000."
