Passports Required For Domestic Travel In 2016, But IRS Can Revoke Passports For Taxes

Papers please

Think you only need a passport to board an international flight? In 2016, some fliers better have one to fly domestic, which means they had better be paying their taxes. It now looks as though your passport could be cancelled if you owe the IRS. The Real ID Act created a national standard for state-issued IDs. It hits air travel in 2016. Some states initially refused to comply, fearing that the feds would make a national database of citizens. Others cited high administrative costs and a 50% increase in fees for drivers. Most states are OK, but millions in Louisiana, Minnesota, New Hampshire and New York may have to start using a passport to fly domestically.

Those states skipped the stricter standards for state-issued IDs. As a result, the TSA could insist on passports rather than driver’s licenses to board flights. The TSA will accept $55 passport cards and $135 passport books as valid identification. But some advice says that people in Minnesota should get passports by January 2016 to fly domestically. New York has been granted a waiver, so any driver’s license should still work. Louisiana has a waiver until Oct. 10, 2016, meaning that existing driver’s licenses work there too. Ditto for New Hampshire which has a waiver until June 1, 2016.

The easy answer may be to dig out your passport to avoid any doubt. Yet the IRS may have something to say about whether your passport is any good. H.R.22 has passed both the House and the Senate. It is expected to pass and be signed into law, adding new section 7345 to the tax code. The title of the section is “Revocation or Denial of Passport in Case of Certain Tax Delinquencies.”

The idea goes back to 2012, when the Government Accountability Office reported on the potential for using the issuance of passports to collect taxes. Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) got on board, and then Sen. Orrin Hatch wrote a Memo to Reporters and Editors. The idea has grown in popularity since then. The State Department could revoke, deny or limit passports for anyone the IRS certifies as having a seriously delinquent tax debt in an amount in excess of $50,000.

Assuming that it passes, in January of 2016, the State Department will start blocking Americans with ‘seriously delinquent’ tax debts. Administrative details about how all this will work are scant. But in all likelihood, it will mean no new passport and no renewal. It could even mean the State Department will rescind existing passports of people who fall into that category.

  1. **IS THIS TO FAR OFF?**

    Hello My Friends!

    I have five (5) minutes of Internet time left for this month so I decided to use it and post my status to this wonderful Geriatric Forum, where my many friends are, had hard time getting retinal scan to log me on.

    The Chip injection spot is starting to heal; no thanks to that 0.25oz of antibiotic they gave me at the Population Tracking Authority Office.

    The QR Tattoo on the top of my left hand remains scabbed over yet the redness has gone away.

    We sure miss our House that was confiscated, this 200sq.ft. Senior’s Room is very constrained and we have room for nothing outside of our late Jcat and now ourselves. Jcat passed away three days ago from starvation. We are so sad over this and could not change the outcome as the Seniors Allotment Center cut out ration of lab meat by a third and it was one or both of Jcat or us.

    Our Transportation Cards were issued this A.M. and it looks like we can travel a total of 25 miles this month, assuming we can obtain seating on the NAUT (North American Union Transport). We are looking forward to getting out of this closet.

    Received the SSTL (Standard Senior Termination Letter) this week and we both are a bit worried by the pending date. It stated that we must appear for Early Termination as the population is consuming more than was allotted for this year. Based upon new births our date could be moved up, sad when one must think of the end just around the corner.

    Oh well, just feeling sorry for myself, still here for a few months (we hope).

    News is little from here, although the PMA (Population Management Authority) removed a 56-year-old man down the hall two days ago. He made a very bad mistake and was talking about the shipping of all peoples back to their countries of origin by the Global Cabal for restructuring of the current inter-breeding and how it has diluted their plan. Doubt he will be back.

    Must go now as about used my time at this 300-Baud connection speed.

    Closing with my wish to you all for months of additional life and enough GMO and Lab-Meat to sustain you all.

    Goodbye and Thanks to the overseers for this privilege of life.

    1. Ron,

      That was awesome! Wish I had your sense of humor!!!!

      We will not let it get that far. It is already 40 Treasons to 1 Constitution, but the US Constitution has something they do not have, it was God inspired!

      If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

      Chief Tecumseh: “When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

      1. Thanks Cal;

        I see this as a form of ‘Trenchant Wit’ rather than simple Humor, which we all should keep close in these times none the less…

      2. Hope it hasn’t come to that? Let’s see: has your state adopted Obamacare?

        Then this time is already here!

    2. Hey Ron, and all other freedom loving patriots.
      check out Senate bill 1909 by Senator Mike Lee. Keep your property and sign the petition.
      https://Americanpolicy.prg/2015/12/8/obama.
      If I understand correctly it has already passed the house in our favor, now it is in the Senate.Hurry And Sign Before It’s Too Late!!!!!!!!!

  2. This has been going on a lot longer than 2012 Ronald Reagan would not pass it because he said, it was the “Mark of the Beast”. How right he was and still is, and now it is being implemented. For you that are unbelievers I am sorry, for you that are you know exactly what it is and what is coming.I have been fighting it for years and now it has arrived. Won’t be long now. If the U.S. does not cut ties with the N.W.O./Revived Roman Empire/ E.U., well soon you won’t be able to buy or sell without the Mark of the Beast, In the forehead or the back of your hand.

    1. Do you use an ATM or credit card with a PIN number or CCR number?

      Have you remembered that number (in your forehead)?

      If you close your eyes, can you make the finger movements needed to enter the pin (in the back of your hand)?
